Westlake Residence

Nestled between multiple stands of Live Oak trees, the Westlake Residence is a contemporary Texas Hill Country home. The house is designed to accommodate the entire family, yet flexible in its design to be able to scale down into living only in 2,200 square feet when the children leave in several years. The home includes many state-of-the-art green features and multiple flex spaces capable of hosting large gatherings or small, intimate groups. The flow and design of the home provides for privacy from surrounding properties and streets, as well as to focus all of the entertaining to the center of the home. Finished in late 2006, the home features Icynene insulation, cork floors and thermal chimneys to exit warm air in the expansive family room.

Love the clock! Can you tell me where it's from?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
The clock looks a lot like a Clayton Boyer design, I would expect it to be hand built and may be a one off.

Benjamin Moore's Angel's Gate is a similar color.
