This beautiful Craftsman-style Michaud custom home sits on just over 2 acres at the end of the cul-de-sac in the Big Horn Valley Estates Subdivision, arguably the most desirable neighborhood in Big Horn, WY. Michaud built this as his family home, so the craftsmanship and detail are elevated, as seen in the handmade dining hutch and kitchen cabinetry, built-ins, and even in the detailed woodwork on the ceiling of the front porch. The home was designed to be timeless, from the quality of the hemlock solid wood doors and Emtek hardware, to the beauty of the Red Oak wide plank floors, Craftsman-style trim, and tiling selections.
The house is approximately 6,732sq ft, includes in-floor radiant heat and central air, and each bedroom has its own temperature control. Everything about this property is grand, from the vaulted ceilings to the mountain views. The 8’ tall front door opens into the vaulted great room, which is accented by the floor-to-ceiling fireplace. The open floor plan flows comfortably between the main living spaces of the living room, dining area and kitchen.
The custom kitchen includes a Bertazzoni Gas Range with a pot filler above, an oversized refrigerator, custom cabinets with built-in cutting boards, and a large center island that offers enough room for food preparation as well as counter space for eating and gathering. It is supplemented by a butler’s pantry which allows for additional workspace and storage.
All four bedrooms are en suite with walk-in closets, tiled showers, and soapstone counters and shower thresholds. The primary bedroom is on the main floor which allows for easy one-level living. The primary bathroom has a vaulted ceiling with a soaker tub that sits at the base of a large picture window, two individual vanities, and two shower heads. The large primary walk-in closet has built-in shelves and dressers, as well as its own washer and dryer, so no need to carry laundry from room to room.
The executive office boasts nearly an entire wall of built-in cabinets and bookshelves, beautiful glass French doors, mountain views, and access to the perfect west-facing deck for enjoying your morning coffee.
The bar room was an addition to the original floor plan and includes a custom-built dry bar with repurposed wood from the current owner’s Wyoming ranch. It is the perfect place to entertain, with plenty of room for additional seating, a T.V. to watch the game, and an easy flow out to the pergola covered back deck which has endless views of the Eastern hills and the 1200-acre ranch to the north where bison sightings are common.
The basement is expansive and includes 9-foot ceilings, metallic epoxy floors, and a large family room that includes a gas fireplace, movie projector, 128” screen, and built-in surround sound system, yet still has plenty of additional space for a pool table or bar area. Just down the hall is a wine closet, a laundry room and a large bonus room with cabinetry, a work counter and an additional storage closet.
The charming, attached cottage, or mother-in-law suite, can be accessed from the house or its own private front entrance, and includes a full kitchen, living and dining area, and ensuite bedroom. The style, quality and craftsmanship of the primary house was carried throughout the cottage, including the Red Oak plank floors, solid wood interior doors, Craftsman-style wood trim, and handcrafted cabinetry. It was designed to function independently from the main house and includes a laundry stackable and its own temperature control. The attached, oversized, 2-stall, heated garage has enough room to park two large vehicles and is still deep enough for plenty of storage space.
This it truly one of Sheridan County’s finest homes!
