Description

 Some places just feel like a place apart – enhanced and different from its neighbors.  One of those special places is Armana Farm.  The 97 acre parcel features gently rolling land, a dramatic modernist house well positioned on the landscape, a bold running stream, a large pond, pastures and woodlands.   Enhanced by lush landscaping and lovely views of the mountains and surrounding landscape, Armana is a true escape from the rest of the world.

Residence

Grounds

The magic of Armana Farm is the combination of dramatic architecture and a private lush landscape of meadows, fields, mountain views and bold rushing streams. This landscape has been significantly enhanced by massive plantings of evergreen trees and shrubs to provide a dramatic entrance to the farm.  They are just now reaching the size to make their own statement on the landscape.  Most of the 97 acres is pastures and hayfields that are partially fenced for horses and the rest open.  A small woodland is found at the road entrance and down below along the Mill Run.  Mill Run is a large bold stream that forms the southern border of the property.  The Run is an ideal small river for fishing and is enhanced by a lovely path that meaders along the riverbank.    In the middle of the property is a large stocked pond with an island which is suitable for fishing and swimming.
