Stunning rustic mid-century inspired home in the Sierra Nevada Mountains

rustic-home-exterior

This incredible rustic mid-century home was designed by Ryan Group Architects in collaboration with Jim Morrison Construction, located in the community of Lahontan, in Truckee, California. Lahontan is a community nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, in a secluded valley just moments from the clear water shores of Lake Tahoe. Lahontan’s golf and living experience rivals the finest private golf communities in the nation. This homesite is ideally positioned on the 14th Fairway.

The homeowners, who are from San Francisco, asked the architects to design a home that is sensible, practical and understated. The programming required distinct zoning, living space appropriately scaled for two people and a love of natural, beautiful materials, the simplicity and function of a 1950s aesthetic became obvious. The majority of the 5,076 square foot house is on one level, reaching out horizontally to capture spectacular views of Lookout Mountain and the Pacific Crest from almost every space.

The scale of the entire house hits the perfect note between wide open and warm cocoon. The entry is instantly warm and inviting, the daisy-shaped wood veneer light fixture in the foyer, the first of many whimsical touches. As the entry opens to the living spaces beyond, the soothing ambiance created by the surrounding natural finishes and muted tones are dotted with punctuations of orange.

Except for a few gable forms, rooflines are mostly low-pitched sheds, keeping the structure humble and deferential to the landscape. A transitional space that pulls together the interior and exterior, the backyard fire pit area features a bench whose detailing embodies the simple elegance of the home’s design and contextual response to the neighborhood.

Above: The exterior is finished cleanly with basalt fieldstone, cedar siding and hot rolled steel panels, all appropriate for its alpine setting, but the house sidesteps being neatly categorized as “mountain modern” with its surprisingly mid-century style.
