Located between holes 12 and 13 on the Bear Dance Golf Course this Larkspur Chalet enjoys great western views.

GMH By Design was hired to customize a “cabin kit” to maximize the western exposure while at the same time respecting its location on the golf course.

A stone feature breaks up the large expanse of the eastern gable end of the house. A balcony off of the master bedroom also helps to articulate the front face of the building.

As a second home this cabin acts as a resort destination for the owner.

Our client for The Chalet was a retiring engineer looking for a small cabin with a resort feel. The land included a horse barn that we converted to a dance hall.
