Glamping Along the Lampasas

Located on five acres along the Lampasas River, this three-bedroom, three-bath home is designed to engage a camping retreat experience with transparent connections to the land in different ways. A sweeping porch, connected via steel arbor, steps down to the front door and allows for the vista of the land down the river right after entering. 

Three living areas allow visitors to have their own private areas, with the main living areas open and connected to wide porches on both sides fully engaging the outdoors year round. A glass connection leads to the master wing, offering a connection to the terraced patio below. The camping experience unfolds in the master wing, with an all-glass master bedroom from the private study perched into the tree line. The master wing includes a second bedroom/bath and laundry area.

From the Judges
The judges praised the home as modern and “super-artsy”. They noted the ceiling treatment in the outdoor room, the porch overhang, and the use of stone.
