Located just south of San Antonio, this ranch retreat is designed for family and friends to enjoy the year-round beauty of the Texas Hill Country. Guests are greeted with a covered parking barn clad in semi-transparent rusting metal, reminiscent of historical Texas cattle pens.
The home engages the outdoors with covered porches on all sides. The entry connects the guest to the main courtyard, a Texas-styled oasis with a pool and ample seating areas to enjoy the outdoor offerings, including a firepit and outdoor grille/kitchen area for entertaining.
Inside the main lodge is open kitchen, dining and living area, great room with tall wood ceilings. The great room embraces the indoor/outdoor connection with pocketing sliding door systems. The main lodge includes the family master bedroom suite, office, and bunk room for children. The guest wing offers visitors their own private hotel-like accommodations.
