Today’s Eclectic Home Tour takes us to the 500 acre Montana ranch of Sanctuary Home.
Karen of Sanctuary Home lives in Los Angeles but escapes to her Montana ranch whenever she can and I can see why.
Welcome to Crow Hollow Ranch! The property consists of the main farmhouse, guest house and a rustic cabin in the woods.
The sounds of rushing water can be heard from every room of the house thanks to a nearby creek.
The wrap around porch overlooks the meadow and a row of rockers welcome visitors.
To add rustic character to the kitchen, reclaimed wood was used to cover the island and refrigerator.
To make the island look more like a piece of furniture, table legs were used on the ends.
A commercial Wolf range has eight burners, a grill and a griddle – pancakes anyone?
Karen says, “the sixty-inch reproduction farmhouse sink was the centerpiece of our kitchen design. I fell in love with the retro look and decided to design the rest of the kitchen around the sink. The windows above look out across the creek so this is my favorite place to be in the kitchen.”
A custom cabinet that looks like a piece of furniture was designed to transition between the working part of the kitchen and the table.
The great room is a whopping 60′ x 30′ and has two large seating areas, a dining room and a huge stone fireplace. Warm earth tones and Western inspired touches help cozy up the large space.
A Montana fieldstone fireplace is the focal point of the great room.
Perfect for entertaining, the reclaimed barn wood bar is at the ready for cocktail hour.
The property can sleep 30 people and each bedroom has it’s own unique western theme.
Karen turned an unused office into the master bathroom and used a pair of pre-made vanities with a table in between for a more farmhouse feel.
Carrara marble surrounds the free standing tub.
More room for guests.
The guest bathroom already had the vintage sink and all that Karen needed to add was the painted chest for storage.
During their first summer at the ranch, Karen discovered the attic which they hadn’t seen when they purchased the house (it was only accessible by a pull down ladder).
They decided to turn it into the world’s cutest bunk room using more reclaimed barn wood to make three twin beds and two doubles.
The other side of the bunk room is a great place for the kids to hang out.
Even the bathroom has rustic charm and how cool is that double sink.
Welcome to the guest house.
The existing storage barn was converted into a two bedroom, two-bath guest house by adding windows, dormers and a porch.
Inside is a cozy retreat.
Last but not least is the little cabin in the woods that they have dubbed the honeymoon cabin.
A vintage fishing basket makes the perfect front door wreath.
The stunning vistas make this a very special place and dining al fresco is a common occurrence.
If this ranch is amazing enough, wait until you get a glimpse at Karen’s California home complete with the most charming horse barn.
