Mid Mod Meets Mountain | Custom Home Design Underway in Fox Hill “Eco-Friendly” Community

ArcWest has several unique custom home designs underway in the new Fox Hill community development, located in Franktown. This hidden gem of a community is being built on the site of an historic farm amid the rolling hills south of Parker. The original homestead with its 1912 Charleston-style farmhouse, barn, and silos has been preserved and thoughtfully integrated into the new community.

All the Fox Hill homes are custom and feature acreage homesites. The views are fantastic and nearly every lot has a view to the Front Range. Fox Hill defines itself as “an eco-friendly community” that is “pioneering a new approach of farm-to-table living.” Located on site is Fox Hill Farm, a fully sustainable garden and orchard that will yield weekly fresh produce boxes to Fox Hill residents. Homes built there also have the option to add geothermal heating and cooling systems.

We’re excited about ArcWest’s work in this community and our partnership with builder, Camerata Homes. One notable custom home design underway is for a couple looking to build their “forever home.” Rather than build large and luxury, our clients opted to downsize, focusing on efficiency, timeless design, and long-term plans. The 2,500 square foot home design has a simple, yet smart 2-level floorplan that offers space for guests while also anticipating future needs such as an elevator.ArcWest-Architects-FoxHill-custom-home-design2

The clients’ vision is to nestle their new home into the side of a hill, while maximizing the unobstructed views that span from Pikes Peak to Mt. Evans. The custom home, deck, and living spaces have all been carefully oriented to capture stunning views from both levels and welcome Eastern light throughout the house.

While Fox Hill is considered “country living,” building there requires working with an HOA, and going through a stringent Design Review Committee (DRC) process. ArcWest is helping our clients navigate through requirements such as maximum heights, footprint sizes, and ultimately providing a striking design that meets the critical review of the HOA’s DRC. We’re nearing the end of the review process and anticipate final approval very soon.
