Big Wood River: Idaho’s Ranch-Style Architectural Gem

Warm, rustic interior with stone fireplace, wood-paneled ceiling, and plush seating.

Step into the Big Wood River house in Idaho, designed by Walker Warner, where ranch-style architecture blends seamlessly with the natural landscape. This home features breezeways that transition from open-air to glass-enclosed, surrounding a courtyard with views of the Boulder Mountains. The use of locally-sourced materials and colors that echo the surrounding valley creates a peaceful, enduring connection to nature, highlighted by an infinity pool mirroring the vast Idaho sky.
