Situated along a rolling, highly wooded edge of the San Gabriel River, this home captures the forms, shapes, materials and details reflective of its inspiration from early Texas Hill Country homes in slightly more contemporary format. Regionailstic in its architectural style, the home embodies straight-forward use of strong Texas materials such as limestone, stucco, timber, metal roofing and exposed rafter tails. Metal shed roofs over exposed widnows offer a respite from the Texas sun. A rear screened porch and stone terrace overlooks, embraces and takes full advantage of the stongest feature of the site - its undeniable connection to the river.
