The dozens of pine trees that line the entrance to 850 Orchid Hill Lane do much more than welcome the homeowners home. The sound of the breeze moving through the brushy limbs creates a gentle “shushing,” a calming sound barrier that separates this peaceful retreat from the buzz of a busy world.
The owners of this completely renovated English Country estate left a Park Cities home for a retreat in Copper Canyon, a place where they could live in a bucolic setting while their Westminster Prize-winning show dogs ran the grassy hills and lushly treed groves that make up this 10-acre property.
What they created here is a rare thing indeed – a home that actually enhances your life.
With seven outdoor living areas, every light-filled room connects seamlessly with greenspace, gardens and rolling lawns. An artist’s studio leads to a balcony that offers the perfect spot to paint a landscape or pen a memoir. Smartly built offices make it easy to lead a corporation or charity, consult with clients or see patients. A pool surrounded by fireplace, pergola and loggia is a year-round retreat. And separate living quarters with two bedrooms offer options for extended family or perhaps a property manager who will keep things running smoothly for a traveling owner.

Designed with open spaces that welcome large scale entertaining and fine details that frame intimate gatherings, this home is a centerpiece in an area prized by those who love animals and treasure the horse country landscape. And yes, those are zebras grazing beside the winding road that leads to the gates of 850 Orchid Hill Lane.
A world away, yet just minutes from Whole Foods, fine dining, shops, entertainment and recognized schools, this home was built to be a place where vision and passion have the space, and the inspiration, to thrive. The property is listed by Nanette and Brian Luker for $1,875,000.
