This stunning home and outdoor entertaining area by Austin, Texas’s Jauregui Architects, is located on three acres that host their own meandering creek as well as an inviting pool and spa. As the architects describe it, “The elegant open floor plan features movable glass walls at the great room, dining, kitchen, breakfast and game room that accentuate the outdoor connection with the terrace and pool.” From the very first moment you enter through wrought-iron gates with subtle lantern lighting, the ambience is stately and luxurious. Wrought-iron gates open smoothly on an emerald-green lawn, accented by a stone bowl fountain that offers instant, cool freshness against the Texas heat. Indoor/outdoor living is enhanced through those expansive glass doors, giving occupants easy entertaining options and lots of space to spread out.
Inside, a mix of Spanish influence and top-of-the-line modern finishes and accents harmonize happily: tall multipaned windows have shining wood trim, while a master bath beckons for a leisurely soak in a deep porcelain tub. The décor is soothing neutrals that balance the deep wood grain on the floors; marble countertops on cabinetry are a fitting setting for collections of art and sculpture. Unique coffered ceilings with indirect lighting set off a round casual table and chairs in the game room — here, guests and family enjoy billiards, cards, and games of all kinds. And for the perfect evening outdoors, the poolside lounge, spa, and fire pit are an ideal relaxing oasis after a long day. With luxury, abundant floral color, and soothing neutral surroundings, this residence is justifiably an award winner in the Jauregui portfolio.
