In the great room, the stacked mountain stone fireplace has five custom-fitted keystones, hand-placed in archways for support as the structure continues upward. The antler chandelier is a statement piece which Connie helped create. After ordering antlers, she arranged them piece by piece how she wanted them, and her contractor built the light from her arrangement. Sumptuous leather furniture adds to the mountainous aesthetic of this room, which Connie says is one of their favorites.
To the side of the living room is another sitting area with a bay window, and through the doorway topped by a mural is a separate apartment. “We actually built that part of the house first, so we could stay here while the rest was being worked on. Shortly after we moved in to the main house, my mother was able to come live with us in the apartment, which was such a blessing. She lived with us for nearly 10 years,” Connie shares.
A spiral staircase with a special wooden banister leads to the second story of the home.
Upstairs is host to a myriad of other rooms, including a billiards loft, several guest bedrooms, a library with the Williams’ collection of leather-bound books, and a special log cabin room. “Mother and I chinked the log cabin walls ourselves,” Connie smiles, remembering the task. “And this is where our two granddaughters love to stay when they come to visit.”
