Custom Designed home by Dick Knecht! Million Dollar Views! ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY!

This amazing Dick Knecht Custom Designed home brought to life by Scull Construction was the first LEED home in Western SD!

VIEWS OF A LIFETIME from every side of the home. Beautifully designed inside spaces cantilevered out over Orion’s Ridge and outdoor living areas for the ultimate in relaxing and enjoying the Beautiful Black Hills’ wide-open skies. Breathe the fresh air and know that there will only ever be 39 homesites in this exclusive 2700-acre Wilderness Preservation Community called Canyon Rim Ranch, leaving plenty of commonly owned land to roam, including the historic Red Canyon itself.

Wonderful floor plan with open post and beam great room with floor-to-ceiling native stone hearth inside and outside housing a three-sided fireplace. Windows galore for passive solar and views beyond compare any way you look. Sunken Kitchen for a separate feel, but still open to the rest. Screened in porch feels like being in a treehouse.:) Custom Designed home by Dick Knecht

In true Dick Knecht form, you walk through a suspended window-lined hallway to the amazing master suite complete with his and hers walk-in closets, his and hers bathrooms, and a private balcony! There is also a studio room on the main level. The walkout basement has a wonderful window-filled family room, private bedroom, bath and more outside covered decks. All this and a guest house, too! Plus 60 acres of owned land.


LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. It is quite a process to apply for this and obtain the certification. As far as I can tell there are only 5 homes in SD with this distinction. This means they were very energy conscious in design and function. They have solar panels on the roof, passive solar, unique septic system set up, used mostly local materials from a 200-mile radius, and more. There are several three-ring binders at the home laying out all the home features and the LEED certification and plaques.

Canyon Rim Ranch also adjoins 4,500 acres of public lands so there will never be anyone in your view. Buy 60 acres get 7000 acres to play on! Canyon Rim Ranch is a 2700 acre Wilderness Preservation Community with 39 privately owned lots and the rest being common grounds. Everyone that has a lot here can enjoy the Red Canyon Saloon Social Club, use the founder’s Cabin Picnic area, and use the Horse Facilities – stables, corral, etc… The community has done a wonderful job of carefully thinning the woods, and the road district does a great job of keeping the roads nice – and plowed in the winter. Canyon Rim Ranch has amazing varied topography and elevations 4,000 – 4,600.

It includes portions of the Historic Red Canyon that was originally one of the main routes into the Black Hills and also was part of the Deadwood Cheyenne Stage Line. Just an hour and 15 minutes from Rapid City for year-round living or a wonderful get-a-way! About a half-hour to either Custer or Hot Springs for hospital/clinic, county courthouse, k-12 school, grocery, restaurants, etc…Come take a look at this amazing home and community!
