Woodland Cottage

Saddlebrooke, MO

Nestled deep in the woods surrounded by towering trees this rustic cottage exudes a sense of warmth and tranquility. This private retreat is the owner’s retirement dream come true. The property blends perfectly into the natural landscaping with its exterior stone and wood, creating a feeling that this home has always been part of the forest. The gorgeous stone and natural wood are carried through to the interior creating eye-catching features like the beam work in the open living room and kitchen spaces, the rich wood cabinets and the stone surrounding the oversized see-through fireplace. Contemporary features meet the needs of modern life like the butler’s pantry, adjacent to the kitchen. Perfect for food prep and storage, with plenty of counter and cabinet space for small appliances, it’s an entertainer’s dream. The timeless design choices are evident throughout the house, with exposed sink plumbing and slate tile in the guest bathroom, a clawfoot tub in the primary bathroom and flower wallpaper accents throughout. The large, screened porch offers a perfect vantage point to appreciate the beauty of the surrounding woods. This woodland cottage is a perfect example of how thoughtful design and construction can help a home blend seamlessly into its natural environment, creating a tranquil retreat that looks like it was meant to be there.

"King Built was instrumental in ensuring the architecture was aligned with our vision and recommended several features we had not thought of that greatly enhanced the living spaces."

—Neil and Melanie, Homeowners
