Rancho del Cielo

Jeff Davis County, Texas
8,700 Sq. Ft.

Nestled at the foot of the West Texas Davis Mountains in a boundless wilderness once populated by antelope, buffalo and mountain lion, Rancho del Cielo overlooks sweeping prairies, mountain ranges and open sky. This landscape recalls the legendary Charles Goodnight who negotiated with the Mescalero Apaches to allow the vast cattle herds of Texas to roam this same open range. Now the ranch serves as a model of conservation and restoration in an epic landscape known for its dramatic beauty.

The front of the residence maintains
a fortified presence on the road, while
interior spaces open to remarkable
views of Rough Canyon

The old world charm and warmth once found in the original structure is recreated throughout.

Soft white plaster walls provide contrast
with the natural surroundings, while
red clay tile roofs anchor the house
to the landscape
