We are a family of seven, with extended family in three states, and we have a very very busy lifestyle. We look forward to getting away and simplifying our lives, even for just a short time on extended weekends. Hiking, searching for old relics or interesting rocks, and taking in the sights recharges us to tackle our routines back home.
We bought this property because we fell in love with the wide open spaces of northern Arizona, the wonders of the Grand Canyon and other local surroundings and destinations, and the old-fashioned charm of Williams and route 66.
We built the home to capture the fantastic westward sunset views, and to provide a place for our large family to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily routines, and gather together in a simpler environment.
Although all of the rooms are large, we wanted to make the home feel cozy, so we added custom finishing touches throughout the house. Our favorite features in the living area are the stone fireplace, built-in bookcase, and reclaimed wood beam accents and other reclaimed features.
To bring character to the modern kitchen, we added a custom-built stove hood, reclaimed light fixtures, and a 10' long antique table reclaimed from an old church that we now use as an island for cooking preparation or just simply to gather around.
We added an old-fashined reclaimed claw foot tub into the guest bathroom, and decorated with a touch of old country French style.
The master bedroom includes a fireplace accented with reclaimed tile and wood. Wood moldings, wood windows, solid wood doors, and wood floors throughout the house add to the cozy charm that we wanted to achieve.
