Step through the front door of this 1964 ranch-style home into an indoor garden atrium and experience nature head-on. Designed and built by the Haddix family (Haddix Lumber) as their family home, this fun ranch is now owned by an international big game hunter and his wife. The home’s original finishes, including exposed beams, wood paneling, slate and wood floors, rock planters and a natural stone fireplace provide a beautiful, natural backdrop to an extensive collection of taxidermy and wildlife art. The furnishings and art complement the home’s original fixtures to create a sophisticated, eclectic feel. Check out the master en suite and second bathroom with matching original tilework in different colors. The bright kitchen, remodeled in 1984 with European-style laminate cabinets and Corian countertops, offers a spare, modern backdrop for the fun, international décor.

Large and light-filled, this contemporary 2016 home is a study in using unique, modern finishes to pull the outdoors in. Warm Brazilian cherry floors anchor the dramatic mix of metal and stone throughout the home. The family room’s dramatic 15-foot, floor-to-ceiling stone and metal fireplace surround with floating shelves brightens the adjacent maple and granite chef’s kitchen with hammered metal backsplash and dramatic lighting. Back in the cozy master suite, tranquil colors combine with natural river rock, stone and tile finishes to create a relaxing getaway in view of the beautiful backyard entertainment area. Be sure to follow the open cable stair rail to the large finished basement where modern finishes accent a second fire and ice fireplace and kitchenette serving two seating areas.

The charming kitchen mixes old and new with edge-grained fir accentuating copper accents.

Lighting fixtures, all copper or copper-finished, enhance the beautiful wood finishes. As you tour, note that many of the pieces of furniture are handcrafted by the homeowner, blending mid-century modern design with pieces collected from Japan.
