Gorgeous Texas Hill Country Modern Home on Cat Mountain

This gorgeous Hill Country modern home was designed by  in collaboration with , located in Austin, Texas. The residence is sited in Cat Mountain, an affluent neighborhood in the hills of northwest Austin, offering views of Lake Austin and the Colorado River. A remodel and addition project, structural considerations required for an extensive tear down of the original home.

The homeowners requested that the remodel design be kept intact, where much of the existing home was re-created. The overall floor plan layout was designed to maximize the views surrounding the home. Expansive windows were carefully placed to capture and enhance the views. The 4,123 square foot dwelling opens to the outdoor living area, blurring the boundaries between indoors and out.

Project Team: Architect: Cornerstone Architects / Interior Designer: Glynis Wood Interiors / Builder: Greenbelt Homes

The homeowner, who also specializes in residential interiors, had a vision of ‘transitional’ style for the home, marrying clean and contemporary elements with touches of antique charm. Energy-efficient materials along with reclaimed architectural wood details were seamlessly integrated, adding sustainable design elements to this transitional design. A collaborative effort between architect and homeowner, the overall aesthetic is characterized by modern, clean spaces playfully interjecting rustic elements.
