The home was designed by an architect that studied under Frank Lloyd Wright, and built by Bruce Hahn and late historian Don Clowser. The style demonstrates a modern merger of beauty and functionality resulting in exceptional energy conservation through passive solar design. Note: Be sure to visit Don's outstanding collection of Native and Early White American artifacts at the Days of ’76 Museum at the north end of Pioneer Way.
A large fenced deck and garden area complement the living space. A gas grill and lounge chairs on the deck further enhance the usability of this unique home. The house sits on a corner lot (Centennial Ave. and Denver St.) The paved driveway (NO MORE MUD) will hold four vehicles or two vehicles with trailers. The yard is sunny in front and is cool and shady in the back.
The greatroom architecture combines kitchen, dining room, living room and sunroom. The architecture utilizes materials with high thermal gain and natural convection properties for optimal heat gain and uniform circulation throughout the three-level living area. The interior design incorporates several elements recycled from local history. Beams used in the vaulted ceilings were transported to the building site from a local historic site and the wood floors were obtained from a local gymnasium that was built in 1904. The huge sunroom doors were obtained from the famous Bullock building on Deadwood's Historic Main Street. The entire structure is bermed into the steep hillside of aspen, oak, ash, ponderosa pine, birch, and woodbine to the north and west to enhance thermal efficiency, aesthetics and privacy.

The 12-foot-high solid oak doors to the sunroom were salvaged from the Bullock Hotel. Hardwood flooring used throughout was rescued from the old Newel High School. Banks of six foot tall windows and skylights upstairs and down transfer the marvelous views indoors for a bright and airy atmosphere.
When it's cold outside you'll enjoy warming up in front of the gas fireplace (Coming soon!).
With nearly 4,200 square feet of floor area, there is always plenty of room to spread out in this incredibly comfortable living space. A ground floor entrance providing a private entrance to the ground floor apartment that includes a second fridge and washer/dryer always comes in handy.
There is cable TV in the ground floor and main floor living rooms, main level bedroom, master bedroom and ground floor bedroom.
The laundry area is on the ground floor and includes two dryers!

The Black Hills are beautiful in any season! You'll often see the deer that come down to get crabapples.
