Former aerospace engineer Daryl Maus studied artistic and architectural masters including Frank Lloyd Wright before designing this home to be as majestic as the 700 acres that surround it. He said he wanted to “put art back into architecture” and we believe he succeeded with his 15,000 square foot masterpiece at Heaven Bent Ranch. Fifty-two granite-based columns hold up 28-foot ceilings. Carpenters spent over 10,000 hours installing thousands of feet of woodwork, including 20,000 feet of clear, cherry-wrapped cabinet grade mouldings from Contact Industries. The result? A home as heavenly as its namesake implies.
