Rustic-Chic Timber-Frame Home in New York

Photo by: ERA Team VP Real Estate The kitchen offers multiple work zones, copper-kissed tile, distressed black cabinetry, concrete counters, a Wolf range with pot filler, stainless steel appliances and a pantry.

Perched on more than 100 hilltop acres in the town of Ellicottville, this timber-frame home looks like it could have been transplanted from the mountains of Montana. The 6,900-square-foot residence does rustic luxury better than just about any home we’ve seen on Cool Houses Daily.

The attention to detail and quality of construction are outstanding: Cedar was used for the exterior framing to withstand the elements, while the gently white-washed interior beams are made of Eastern pine. An incredible 3,000 square feet of stone was used to encase the outdoor supports, the fireplace in the great room, the Wolf range alcove and the kitchen island.

Reclaimed wood from an old tobacco barn in Kentucky was used for the ceiling treatment in the great room and for the floors throughout the main level. The homeowner – an interior designer who also acted as the general contractor during construction – oversaw the custom finishes and furnishings found throughout the home.

When you’ve finished marveling at the inside of the residence, you can step outside to the wraparound deck that overlooks more than 100 acres of open and wooded land with a three-quarter-acre pond. Check out the views – inside and out – in the gallery above.
