Double J Ranch’s owners had idyllic dreams of a cowboy retreat when they left their Boston home and began building on a 5,000-acre site in Wyoming. Their new working cattle ranch is a harmonious blend of the rustic west and New England refinement.
The 5,800-square-foot home is centered around a lofty and spacious kitchen. The open floor plan hints to the vastness of the West while expansive windows are uniquely positioned to offer views of the surrounding valley and a distant mountain range. Materials such as reclaimed wooden floors and recycled barn door siding reflect the locale while pale green painted clapboard siding and slate countertops hint to an east coast farmhouse. The sophisticated layout includes a walk-in pantry and wine closet, a built-in wood stove and pizza oven, and an upstairs master suite connected to the second floor rooms by an interior bridge walkway.
The home’s exterior includes oxidized steel and corrugated steel roofing that withstand the area’s harsh elements, while dry-stacked moss rock and rough-hewn timber posts add warmth and charm. Double J Ranch embodies the spirit of a hard-working ranch and the comfort of a New England cottage.
