Located on a 41 acre ranch at the edge of Texas Hill Country, this single-story ranch house is situated within dense stands of live oak trees which filter westward views to the Balcones Creek.
The house’s living areas bridge courtyard spaces on the north and south and are bordered by thick limestone walls that screen private bedroom wings on the east and west. A screened outdoor living room and master suite overlook the creek which flows vigorously with a bit of rain.
Pivoting slatted doors help mitigate winds at covered outdoor circulation and living areas while deep roof overhangs provide shade from the harsh Texas sun. Exterior materials are selected for their resilience, durability, and ability to weather well which will allow them to blend in with the surrounding natural environment’s color palette.
