Situated on the edge of a multi-acre parcel, this house nestles up to a series of descending terraces overlooking a steep embankment and creek in West Austin. A conscious blending of new and old, the home’s interior weaves natural textures of reclaimed white oak, local field stone, sawn limestone, copper and exposed steel against a backdrop of crisp white plaster. 

The main living areas of the house: family room, kitchen, and dining open to one another at the heart of the house. Outdoor porches - both screened and open – surround this core linking rooms to the landscape and corresponding views. The master suite and other “away” spaces anchor the north end offering privacy and their own distinct views of the landscape.
