Midcentury style home on 5 acres with Hill Country views

This beautifully designed and comfortable home is inspired by Eichler Homes built in the 50s and 60s in California designed by A. Quincy Jones. These homes were influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright and Prairie style architecture which blended modern design with organic materials to integrate a building with its environment. Well placed windows capture light and sky, and materials used in the home reflect the materials found outside.

This home offers over 5000 square feet of living space including the main house, separate guest quarters, and an uncommonly well built and energy efficient 1800 square foot building which now houses a workshop garage...all built around a courtyard with room for a pool.
