Rock House

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 750 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.
