Castlewood Estate – “A Residence Above all Else”. Nestled at the base of Red Mountain and surrounded by 360 degree, unimpeded views 625 Red Mountain Ranch Road is a location above all others while embracing the valley’s most impeccable architectural details and finishes. A collaboration between renowned builder John Stock and architects Excalibur Construction and Custom Log Homes of Montana, this distinguished home has over 9,000 square feet of hand hewed large diameter logs and moss rock weighing as much as 6,000 lbs a piece. Nine fireplaces, rough sawn wide plank pine, wormy chestnut and oak wood floors, solid granite and marble counter tops and tile, copper clad windows, sinks and baseboard accents, illuminated onyx and knotty alder cabinets all took over five years to orchestrate to become the valley’s most comprehensive old world lodge. Commanded by a sophisticated LiteTouch system, every square foot of this timeless home is indulged with LaCanche, Sub-Zero, Fisher & Paykel, Viking, Jacuzzi, and Herbeau fixtures and appliances. Nearly 6,000 basement square feet have been partially finished. Castlewood Estate is a true masterpiece of thought, design, and execution that must be seen to be appreciated.
