A large pool with an inviting deck space an open living area that brings the outdoors inside and bedrooms that offer complete privacy create an interior that is both functional and tranquil.
With a simple white backdrop the living room offers a perfect canvas to bring in essentially different materials and textures like the snazzy Moroccan rug (which is still pretty modern) a stone coffee table and the minimal modern fireplace.
A Neutral backdrop is a feature that is all too common in modern homes and the in Texas is no different as its walls are clad in simple white. But that does not mean this is devoid of uniqueness or personality as it is carefully curated furniture custom décor pieces and of course nifty accessories that give it an aura of its own.
One of the unique challenges of building this lovely family retreat was the existing building code that prevented the house from being any taller than six feet above grade on the building’s uphill side.
It is barely a surprise then that a modern retreat set in its rural countryside is surrounded by an idyllic landscape that seems to not only define the silhouette of the residence but also its style and ambiance. Nestled in a remote nook of 25 miles southeast of the beautiful escape sits on top of a mountainous lot and offers a panoramic view of the distant river and mountains.
In fact rigid walls are kept to an absolute minimum here giving the dwelling a relaxing vibe. With the interior and the garden and pool deck outside flowing into one another almost seamlessly the greenery outside becomes an integral part of the living area indoors.
On the inside oak boards usher in warmth and elegance even as polished modern finishes in the kitchen and dining room paint a picture of refinement. A smart ventilation system and elegant décor complete a cottage that is both exquisite and exciting!
