Spanish Oaks Exterior

Focusing on using the heavily treed lot and providing multiple indoor and outdoor living experiences, the architects chose a Texas Hill Country Contemporary style to showcase a home that makes the best of each space. The experience of the home begins across a breezy Lanai, which opens to the courtyard and highlights a sitting area as well as a detached casita. The Foyer opens across to another outdoor living area featuring a one-of-a-kind “fire trough” that blends into the spa and serves as a contemporary fire pit for the backyard. The Great Room features a stunning stone fireplace wall with slivers of inset wood to create a beautiful sculpture across the wall. Flanked on both sides by large doors and transoms, the home has the ability to open the courtyard through to the back of the house via the prime living areas. An especially stunning feature is the design of the sanctuary Master Bath. A glass pivot wall opens the slate and stone room, which features a hand-cut stone soaking tub, to a luxurious outdoor shower experience. Care was taken in every aspect of the home’s design, creating each space to be distinctive, providing a unique feature or experience.

What material was used for this home? - The exterior... both the brick but more specifically the material above the brick.
