The Texas Hill Country is known for stunning views of rolling landscape from Fredricksburg vineyards to the Austin skyline. This breathtaking 7,000 square foot home in West Lake Hills takes modern elements and design to create the perfect backdrop for one of the best views the Hill Country has to offer. Greg Neff of Premier Lonestar Renovations used materials like Ipe, Cedar and custom imported Mexican tile to create captivating color contrasts for this impressive home.
Probably the most striking characteristic of this West Lake Hills home is the infinity pool and two-story cascading waterfall. The one-of-a-kind iridescent tile was imported from Mexico and took a crew three months to install. The result is an oasis of refined leisure and an incredible location to watch the sunset.
Modern home design is about creating clean lines with high-quality natural materials. The stained Clear Cedar soffit creates these clean lines as rich colors against the white stucco backdrop adds a level of interest and intrigue to the exterior.
Once you make your way inside of this modern home, you’ll find the interior is just as impressive with its unmatched design. The Cedar ceiling accent creates a seamless transition from the exterior to interior. Instead of a chandelier, low-hanging bulbs give an extra edge of style to this dining room.
The small courtyard by the entry of this modern home offers an enclosed tranquil space. Ipe accents line the retention wall turning cold concrete into a warm statement piece. A number of trees gives the courtyard a beautiful contrast of colors when paired when the Ipe and concrete.
Often overlooked, one feature of the exterior that makes a huge difference is the custom aluminum railing coupled with Feeney CableRail on the rooftop deck. The cable railing allows unhindered views from any vantage point. Plus, the minimalist design complements the view and creates a relaxing atmosphere to take in the elements.
The Brazilian Hardwood Ipe is an excellent choice for today’s modern deck design. It is incredibly durable, will withstand the elements, and its rich colors add a level of sophistication that not many other materials can. The striking colors of the artificial grass, deep blue pool and Ipe all come together to create an exterior design unlike any other.
