Sporting Classics Magazine Feature Summer 2019

An article by Alex Lovett-Woodsum, Editor for Fay Ranches
“Sportsmen and women are connected by a desire to experience nature in all of its raw beauty: the cold rush of a babbling stream as trout sip fluttering mayflies, deer peacefully grazing in a green pasture, the sun reddening the sky as it rises up from the mountains at dawn.”
The High Alpine Ranch, located north of Big Timber, Montana, was featured in Summer 2019’s Sporting Classic magazine as THE home in the West that represents all that the dream sporting life has to offer; combining fine architecture, wildlife, agriculture, and aquatic features. Take the captivating sporting life tour here.

“This home,” says Umbanhowar of Hughes Umbanhower Architects, “is supposed to seem as if it has come out of the ground naturally, and has been and will be there for a while.”

“The owners wanted a place that was functional and felt casual and welcoming for their young family, but every aspect of the design process was thoughtful and deliberate. The ponds are incorporated into the geothermal heating and cooling system; their waters are also used for irrigation. The T-shaped layout, green roof, floor-to-ceiling windows (many of which slide entirely open to the outside), large eaves, and minimalist interior make nature the most important aspect of the home, as even from inside you always feel you are a part of it.” Positioned along the banks of Big Timber Creek with the snow-capped peaks of the Crazy Mountains to the west and the Absarokee Mountains looming to the south the views are powerful and act as your backdrop throughout the ranch. The ranch offers 1,261± diverse acres with excellent trout fisheries, upland bird hunting, and big game hunting. The ranch also has one of the rarest amenities for a western ranch, an amazing 3,800± square foot modern masterpiece surrounded by four spring-fed ponds and the creek. The custom landscaping and water features created outside the home literally diffuse into the house due to glass windows throughout. The manicured lawns, flower gardens, spring-fed ponds filled with trout, and Big Timber Creek can be experienced from anywhere in the home.
