The Modern Croft

Nestled in the Foothills, just outside of Lyons, you’ll find this remarkable, modern farmhouse style home, ideally perched on 35 acres of some of the most picturesque land in the area. Backing to hundreds of acres of conservation easement land, you’ll find the privacy and serenity you’re looking for, within a short drive to town.

Inspired by the Scottish Croft style of architecture, the current owners merged historic styles of design and construction, with a host of modern influences to create this incredible retreat. Heavy timbers, constructed of post and beam techniques, lift the 18’ ceilings in the family room to soaring heights while anchoring the heart of the home as a gathering place for all.

Custom features throughout, including one of a kind light fixtures and doors, create a space that is truly unlike any other on the Front Range. Of course, in a property like this, you’d imagine a private owner’s retreat, complete with a spa like bath, generous storage and access to the outside terrace. And you wouldn’t be disappointed here! Two more bedrooms and an enormous craft room lead into the 1200 square foot garage and round out the main level. Upstairs you’ll find a massive lounge and library, full bathroom and separate bedroom or office.

And yet, all of this doesn’t even come close to telling the story of this incredible home. Built for ultimate comfort and energy efficiency, using straw bale construction and passive solar design, along with radiant heating (also set up for future solar panels), you won’t find a more cozy or inspiring place to be. This incredible property also boasts a lavender farm, with more than 800 English lavender plants, along with an 800 square foot greenhouse, featuring a koi pond and large planting boxes for year-round gardening and a Joanna Gaines Chicken Coop (chickens excluded)!

Yet, the real story of this stunning property is how it makes you feel – calm, peaceful and connected. You won’t find a more perfect property!
