This 1.1-acre site rises 25 feet, offering dramatic views of the golf course. The new 3,600-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath home offers a unique lifestyle approach and is designed to offer owners and guests their own zones of living. The guest house allows visitors to find their own place of privacy. The main design feature of the home is the uniquely placed, transparent living room. Picking up on the historical Texas homes of the 1800s, the natural limestone walls blend outside to inside. Also connecting with Texas heritage is the weathered steel guardrail, which allows for privacy from the interior spaces.

From the Judges
Fabulous; stone acts as a base; vertical structure with glass and metal filling in; use of fragile metal brackets is elegant; nice balance of stone and metal; use of stone on walls and floor ties it all together; takes advantage of the site very well; feels like you’re living outside in every space; elegant mix of stone, wood and metal; makes total architectural sense; not forced.
