The stone exterior and tiled roof of this Austin, Texas, home draw inspiration from traditional Italian farmhouses, while the sleek, straight lines of the structure add a contemporary touch to the design. Placement of the home was intentional to capture views of the Texas Hill Country from both the front and back of the house. The master bedroom features views on both sides.

A metal gable porch roof with exposed beams keeps with the country farmhouse style of the exterior. Red Tolix chairs, a glowing, barn-style pendant light, and pots overflowing with vibrant green plants create an inviting entrance.
Teal blue board and batten paneling give this farmhouse a fresh, funky look. Concrete slabs and gravel create a contemporary, minimal pathway to the front door. A red Adirondack bench serves as a plant holder.
This 12-acre property included a small 1960s contemporary house in original condition. The design team preserved the existing structure for use as a pool house and build a new, traditional farmhouse nearby, connecting the the two buildings with a 40-foot underground tunnel. The modern farmhouse's open porch showcases the idyllic rural view while shading the first floor interior.
A clean-lined pool and hot tub rest behind this Mediterranean-inspired Austin home with contemporary styling. Large windows and sliding doors provide sweeping views of the surrounding Texas Hill Country. The stone exterior and tile roof preserve the home's traditional feel, while the sleek, straight lines update it for the 21st century.
The design concept for this inviting home was to combine rural farmhouse friendliness with contemporary materials and luxuries. A light exterior and lots of windows create an immediately welcoming atmosphere for guests and residents.
