The owner of this home, an avid equestrian, wanted her home to have the feel of a converted barn. The window walls in the great room and the master bedroom are as if of the end wall of a barn, but with a multi-paned window wall. In both cases a see-through fireplace in front of the window wall can be seen from inside and out. Private guest bedrooms are upstairs. The downstairs is designed for open living and for spilling out comfortably to the courtyard. the master is at the end of a hallway designed to accommodate a salvaged ranch gate the owner wanted to display. Master closet opens to master bath on one end and laundry on the other. Master shower has a glass door to an outdoor bathing area. Horse trailer towing truck, mule and other vehicles occupy a detached garage with studio apartment above. This ranch chic loft has a smaller version of the window wall also aimed to views of the pasture and equestrian center.
