A Bozeman Farmhouse With Contemporary Flair
A creative spin on the traditional Western home

On the green of Black Bull, a private golf community in Bozeman, Montana, sits what, at first glance, appears to be a Western farmhouse.
But upon closer inspection, one will see that this Bozeman home takes a sharp left turn from the typical farmhouse concept, blending Western elements into its bright and airy interiors.
Built for a couple with a growing family, the “contemporary farmhouse” design is a hole in one: It’s a destination for visiting family members, as well as a place for the kids to grow and enjoy.
On the outside, contemporary shapes meet a Western palette. On the inside, the 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home is sprinkled with fun, thoughtful, design-sensitive elements amidst its clean lines and natural light.
Steel trusses in the great room complement the steel fireplace. Built-in custom cabinets lend an air of sophisticated functionality, as well as visual interest.
The color palette provides a quiet, subtle atmosphere to offset the liveliness that small children instantly infuse into a space.
A covered porch provides an outdoor-living extension of the dining room.
The sleek white kitchen is the perfect spot for family gatherings and working on homework at the kitchen island.
A sliding farmhouse-style door leads to the mud room.
The spacious mudroom shows signs of an active Montana family.
The main-level master suite provides a grown-up getaway, with a plush master bath.
Upstairs, a bright yellow “Hobbit Door” leads to the kids’ play room, designed for flourishing imaginations.
A playful bathroom accompanies the kids’ domain upstairs.
