The design of this home was based on the view. We walked the empty lot and decided the front door and great room had to be on axis with Lake Austin and we knew everything else would follow. Follow, it did. The view from the office, kitchen sink, master bedroom and – my personal favorite, the painting studio - are all amazing. We took the classic Hill Country Fusion look and modernized it with steel instead of rough timbers, paint instead of stain, solid surface countertops instead of granite and, well, all designers talk too much; look for yourself.
Don’t ‘miss the hidden pantry (the owners wanted the kitchen to not look like a kitchen), his and hers offices, dog accommodations, custom vent hood, and, again, the artist’s studio.
It was a joy working with the builder, John Davis, whose thoughtful, responsive and responsible way of building shows in every detail.
