This ranch retreat is inspired by its incredible Texas Hill Country setting at the precipice of an escarpment with panoramic views of the Texas Hill Country. Clean contemporary detailing, as well as a dynamic rising ceiling plane, draw you through the home’s entry to the unparalleled views, and to comfortable outdoor spaces surrounding a pool and fire-pit perched on the edge of a cliff.
Due to the remote setting, durability and resilience were two essential goals. The home is not only designed to be comfortable without air-conditioning, its self-sufficiency is assured through an extensive roof-mounted solar array that produces between 95% and 110% of the electricity needed to run the home. All water needs, outdoor and domestic, are provided through a 50,000-gallon rainwater collection system. Healthy living is also assured through superior Indoor Air Quality strategies designed into this home.
