McElmurry Homes delivers a vision of home that’s stately, warm and inviting
Montana's Finest Homes
Perched in the hills surrounding Missoula, this home uses old-world elements to create an elegant style with a rustic feel.
McElmurry Homes of Missoula expertly delivered the owner’s vision of a stately yet warm and inviting home to enjoy the Missoula, Montana, views. Entering the home through tall, grand dark wood doors the great room immediately presents breathtaking grandeur with magnificent arched beams from Boyce Lumber accentuating the dark wood slates that make up the entire ceiling.
As an elegant counterpoint, a modern globe chandelier with star-like lights illuminates the room. Large windows from Sierra Pacific Windows bring in the outdoors and an impressive floor to ceiling rock fireplace adds another old world element. Rough timbers, aged patinas on the walls, wrought iron and natural stone all come together to create a look that is grand and timeless.
Tumbled travertines, split face slates and metallic tiles set in detailed patterns, all designed and installed by Abbey Carpets Missoula, give the residence a stately feel. Pavers in the mudroom and back entry mimic an old cobblestone street. Dark rustic oak floors give an aged appearance to new construction. The lodge style is carried through in the great room with creative design from Madison Creek Furnishings.
The muted red tiger stripe chairs, distressed leather armed couch and tree trunk based coffee table all flow seamlessly with the aged patina, suede effect wall treatment. A large cream color designer rug brings together the finishing touch of elegance to the rustic style. In the kitchen, ample white cabinets and a large window for lots of natural light speak to the fresh and pure joy of garden picked foods.
Striking gold and sand colored granite countertops from Direct Source add another element of richness to this home. Dark wood floors and a stone backdrop behind the range carry through the old world feel, while a designer metal hood and metal refrigerator add a contemporary element. This Missoula home ties together a sense of warmth, grandeur and legacy for future generations. •
