Picturesque rural farmhouse in Montana

The Stock Farm Residence was designed by architecture studio Locati Architects and is situated near the small rural town of Hamilton, Montana. The rural setting creates an extremely picturesque and peaceful environment for this rustic home with mountain ranges in the background. This was an ideal condition for the owner’s desire to construct a residence that would help to maximize indoor/outdoor living, working and entertaining. Here is a description of the project from the architects, “the home is designed in three parts in order to separate the more public from the private spaces. The main living spaces are centrally located, with the outer branches of the house accommodating the more private areas such as the bedrooms and owner’s art studio.

Each section of the home is linked by hallways of abundant glass to once again maximize the amazing views. A key element of the Stock Farm Residence is the centrally located covered patio. This patio is the ultimate gathering place including a built-in barbecue, dining area, and nearby fire pit. When the weather is unsuitable for gathering on the covered patio, the Great Room is yet another place optimally suited for entertaining. Featuring a vaulted ceiling, large expanses of glass, and an impressive stone fireplace, the space is exemplary for comfortable living.”

The art studio is another fun space in the home, with dual garage doors on either end, the room can be completely opened up for maximum ventilation and connection to the outdoors for creative inspiration.
