One of the trickier lots we have ever built on, this central Austin property had creeks on 2 sides and a very steep cliff. The home sits on 12 concrete pillars drilled deep into the ground. It has a steel frame that cantilevers out at the ground floor and first floor. Two bedrooms, 2 offices that can convert to bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, an exquisite screened-in porch all along the back of the home. Views of the creek in back and on the side. The exterior material is wood and sheet metal. RAM Windows and doors. Since the roof isn't visible, shingles were used to save money. Beautiful home design by Forge Craft Architecture + Design.

Media room, 2 living rooms, an office, custom steel floating staircase, infinity edge pool, all on 3 lush Hill Country acres. A private, sunny retreat for our new Texas friends.
