Named for the sandstone outcropping that determined its design, the Rock House is seamlessly integrated with the surrounding landscape. The first house to be built at Carraig Ridge, the Retreat was conceived by award-winning architect James Cutler of Cutler Anderson Architects. The firm, based in Washington State, is renowned for its contemporary houses that blend rich materials and textures with powerful forms to create simple, elegant Spaces. At just 1,230 square feet, the Retreat shows that luxury isn’t determined by size. Exceptional craft and careful attention to detail ensure that every aspect of the house is functional and beautiful. The Rock House is positioned for a stunning Rocky Mountain panorama. The site balances spectacular distance views with the dense forest and delicate natural rock garden of its immediate surroundings, resulting in a compelling example of living within the landscape, rather than on it. One can see why this home was named Wallpaper*’s cabin of the year. Carraig Ridge is an innovative community in 650 acres of natural landscape with 500 acres set aside in conservation; each owner owns a share of the common lands. Carraig Ridge is an escape from the demands of daily life in the city.

It exists to improve the rural character and natural integrity of its surroundings. The primary amenity offered by the community is immediate access to unspoiled, peaceful landscape.
