A taste of Tuscany reflects off Lake Travis from atop a hill in Lakeway, Texas. A Texan’s interpretation of Tuscan styling graces the exterior of this home with wide, bracketed overhangs, extending the windows’ lifespan and protecting the home’s interior from the hot Texas sun.

Careful placement of window openings gives the interior spaces a naturally inviting radiance during the day while at night the home’s walls glow inside and out from carefully placed wall sconces, recessed cans, and other indirect lighting fixtures. The home’s interior stays cool with lower-than typical air conditioning bills because of its highly efficient air-conditioning system.
