Tropical trees and long grass create mirrored gardens framing the backyard patio. A fountain is centered in the circular stone open-air patio with lounge chairs placed on either side for a tranquil sitting area. Glowing exterior light highlights the house including the second story columned balcony.
The open floor plan highlights the beautifully spacious design of this modern home. A stone circular table in the dining area is complimented by a matching stone accent wall in the living room area. Modern light fixtures give a water-like effect as they cascade down over the space. Glass steps lead up to a glass lined balcony hall traveling over the room.
A bed of local river stone serves as both a decorative border to the patio and a drainage system that keeps water from the home's foundation in front of the balcony attached to the master bedroom at the HGTV Dream Home 2011.
With its huge portico, soaring stone columns, wrought iron balconies and grand staircase, this mansion in Dallas could easily be mistaken for a palace. Planters overflowing with palm fronds are staggered across the stone steps to draw the eye up to the glittering entrance.
This Spanish-style living room has the feeling of a modern-day Medieval great hall, with interior balconies, arched openings and an imposing stone entryway bridged by a dark-stained lintel. Slipcovered and weathered wood furnishings tone down the formality of the space, giving it a comfortable, welcoming vibe.
