Living up to the legacy of a circa-1902 family farmhouse is a daunting task. But Tim and his wife Leslie were up to the challenge of building their very own modern Golden Eagle homestead on the land outside of Eagle his family has called home since 1882. With Shepherd Resources, Inc (SRI) and Beck Building company, the homestead sits like a crown jewel at 7,900 feet. 

The initial impression when entering the home is undeniably welcoming. Tones of taupe, beige, and cream serve the dual purpose of brightening and warming the space. This palette paves the way for warm greens and faded oranges that touch the rooms expertly. The homeowner included traditional details throughout the home: mantels, sconces with lampshades, coffered ceilings, and mullioned windows. The impeccable scale of the details lend to  its timeless air.

Former Georgia residents, Tim and Leslie’s penchant for the traditional goes beyond brass sconces. “We are not open floor plan people,” says Tim. From the library to the formal dining room, the home’s layout includes spacious rooms whose purpose is obvious to a fellow traditionalist.

Tim knew that when it was time to formally grow roots, he’d return to the family land just like the Colorado homesteaders who originally owned it.  The 1,760 acre parcel sits on a conservation easement. Therefore, the land will remain wild and largely undeveloped for years to come.

Principal Architect Adam Harrison drew from the pristine surroundings when designing the home. It sits slightly concave to take advantage of mountain views in every direction. Recycled building materials pack a double punch of eco-friendly and suitable for withstanding the Colorado climate. Solar panels ensure the house can remain fully electric, and carbon neutral. With its timeless design and clever construction, the Golden Eagle Homestead should serve them well for generations.
