This Hill Country Fusion home incorporates some of the whimsy of the popular Tuscan style while eschewing the ostentation. Instead, it is grounded in the vernacular of its area with a metal roof and wood timbers. This fusion of styles makes the home beautiful but welcoming and home-y.
The slope of the lot was both its greatest challenge and its greatest asset. While many of the living areas including the media room and study/home office (with separate entrance) are on the first floor, the home needed to be tall enough to have a commanding presence from the street even though it sits well below. The payoff for the slope is a panoramic view of hills, greenbelt , a stream, and in the distance, a well known country club.
While the entire home is designed to take advantage of the view, perhaps our favorite feature is the private porch with kiva fireplace off the master bedroom. The pool designer independently chose to wrap the pool around the corner of the house enhancing that feature even more.
