This 300 acre property set within a side canyon of the Wenatchee River gained new life through restoration and improvements to landscape and architecture. At the time of purchase, the property had been neglected for years. Through a collaborative process, a master plan was developed to guide removals, renovations, and additions to architectural and landscape components.
The resulting design includes a renovated historic barn for gatherings and guests as well as a new home with outdoor cooking and gathering spaces set on a natural hillside terrace overlooking the valley. Roads and paths nestle unobtrusively within the pastoral landscape, connecting the horse paddock, chicken coop, vegetable and cutting garden, and trout pond. Areas of the site that had been degraded by previous neglect were restored with native plants on slopes and active agriculture on the property’s lower terraces.
