Old world hacienda offers timeless design features in Austin, Texas


This Mediterranean style home was designed by custom builder John Siemering Homes, located in the beautiful gated community of Spanish Oaks in Austin, Texas. Nestled on an acre of property, this impressive home features exquisite craftsmanship. The Mediterranean style architecture creates a timeless old world feel thanks to an abundance of stonework, arches, and uniquely framed windows.

The stunning exterior was handcrafted using a three color sandstone blend, integrated stucco and a hand blended clay tile roof. An iron entry gate leads to an arched walkway with an antique wood double front door. This home features vaulted ceilings, interior stone work, wood floors and antique Douglas fir beams throughout.


What We Love: This beautiful old world hacienda features gorgeous living spaces both indoors and out. The old world design creates a warm and inviting atmosphere that is simply divine. The stone on the exterior entryway welcomes visitors into this home, through gorgeous wood doors. Even the light fixtures in this home are exquisite… but we especially love the master bedroom, it is so luxurious and decadent… Readers, how about you, what do you think of the overall design of this home? Please tell us in the Comments!
