Native stone along with vertical metal siding and a screened porch combine to create a residence with a distinct personality that’s still in harmony with its surroundings. The steep pitched roof at the second floor contrasts with the low sloping roofs covering both the screened porch and the entry gallery. Both the front and rear entrances open into a stone walled gallery with sunlight filtering through continuous clerestory windows. An open kitchen overlooks the living room and dining alcove. Sliding glass doors stretching from wall to wall in the living area open to a screened porch and fireplace. A hallway leading to the full bath is lined with built-in storage cabinets. The stacked washer and dryer are concealed behind a sliding wood rail door. Upstairs, two bedrooms each have private baths strategically located to ensure privacy for all. The Ford 3 bedroom adds a stone-clad additional bedroom to the first level. Meticulous attention to such details as the window design and “rain chain” downspout enhance the proportions of this modern interpretation of a Texas Hill Country bungalow.
