When a couple from Northern California made the decision to construct a year-round vacation home for their family in Victory Ranch near Park City, they enlisted the expertise of architect Tim Furner, interior designer Carrie Delany, and builder Anthony Jorgensen. The couple desired a mountain retreat, but they sought to avoid the heaviness of a traditional lodge-style dwelling or an overly modern design, preferring instead a ranch-style ambiance. As showcased in our feature The High Life, the outcome is a stunning fusion of contemporary ease and rustic ranch aesthetics, boasting both livability and luxury. Call it Mountain Modern Craftsman, Furner suggests. Presented here are additional photographs that delve further into the spaces of this exceptional project, showcasing even more reasons to admire its beauty.

The broad beams, natural stone and reclaimed barnwood siding that characterize the exterior and contribute to the desired ranch aesthetic are echoed indoors, including the great room where an inviting living room opens to the kitchen and dining room. “The dark beams add a graphic nature to the interior, making it a little more contemporary,” Delany explains. 

Natural stone adds a rustic touch to the kitchen, where an island painted with Sherwin-Williams Pewter Green delivers a shot of color. Silver Macaubas Quartzite lends elegant veining to the countertops illuminated by pendants by Arteriors. The cabinetry is by Premier Woodwork & Design. 

Built into the stone-covered fireplace, a vertical firebox adds an eye-catching architectural element to the entry and stairway areas. 

Located off the kitchen, a cozy dining nook is sheathed in tongue-and-groove paneling.  Beneath a pitched ceiling and collection of Natalie Page ceramic pendants, a floating table serves two benches custom made for the space. 

Within the open dining room, Delany relied on a Phillip Jeffries grasscloth mural to deliver a sense of sophistication to the space. The look is fostered by an Urban Electric pendant adorned with customized blue shades. The informal wood table and woven chairs further enhance a sense of comfort.

Combining a classic silhouette with a contemporary finish, the bathtub in the primary suite gleams in the natural light streaming through expansive corner windows, offering stunning views of the mountain landscape.

Located near the bottom of the light-filled stairwell, the lower-level bar boasts richly veined Magic Brown marble and a shared wine room wall.

Furner dedicated considerable effort to meticulously positioning the house and its various spaces on the hillside property. For instance, the stairwell is strategically situated opposite the front door, offering unobstructed views across the Jordanelle Reservoir and towards Deer Valley in the distance.

A Round Cross Stitch Mirror from Jamie Young Co. adorns the entryway, positioned above a handsome wood console. The space is clad with white oak tongue-and-groove paneling and natural stone.

Built-in cabinetry furnishes the room’s billiards area located near the lower-level bar.
