Set in a south Austin neighborhood where peacocks roam the streets, this four bedroom house strives to blur the distinction between indoor and outdoor

Set in a south Austin neighborhood where peacocks roam the streets, this four bedroom house strives to blur the distinction between indoor and outdoor. The archetype gabled, second story volume spans between two stucco cubes.

The resultant space of this 28' clear span is a covered veranda, perfect for al fresco dining or taking a respite from the hot Texas sun beside the pool. An office with a separate entrance doubles as a guest suite when required.

Floors and accent walls of white oak illuminate the interior. An abundance of zenith light floods the master bath through multiple skylights, reflecting off the marble walls and floor. Large, strategically placed glass openings allow light in while providing privacy between the main and guest house. An iridescent stainless steel entry offers a nod to the local fowl.
