Situated close to a stand of oak trees at the edge of a grazing pasture, with a view opening up towards the property’s water tank, this house is a clean and simple rendition of a traditional ranch house. Oriented on-site to take advantage of prevailing breezes and minimizing solar gain, a light monitor extends the length of the house organizing the spaces. Large pocketing doors extend the living area, opening up to a wrap around porch with a large screened area. A pool and low site wall connect to a smaller guest house on the property.
