Gorgeous ranch-style home inspired by the legendary west Texas sky


This gorgeous ranch-style home was designed by Ryan Street & Associates, located on a hilltop property in Rollingwood, a city in Travis County, Texas. Taking four years to complete, this U-shaped family home is spread out over one level and centered around a spacious courtyard. This low-profile dwelling was created to be casual and functional, with a fabulous indoor-outdoor connection.

The goal for the project team was to give the overall feeling of a remodel of an old ranch house. To do this, the main hallway was intentionally designed to lend the impression that it may have originally been this home’s front porch. Opting for a thin footprint helped to maximize views on all sides to capture the beauty of the natural surroundings and flood the interiors with light.

The material selections are modest and practical. Exterior materials blend into the interior spaces, including warm white plaster, custom white oak paneling, and rough-hewn reclaimed wood beams on the ceiling — creating texture and depth.


What We Love: This gorgeous ranch-style home offers a luxe yet casual home for family living and entertaining. With multiple living areas, this family home offers plenty of space for various activities, whether it be movie watching or hanging out listening to music, and enjoying a cocktail. We are loving the soothing color palette and beautifully appointed living spaces with an exquisite mix of old and new.

Rollingwood is in the Hill Country. Not west Texas. This is a true west Texas Sunset.

I live in Texas. skylights and these windows will make this house unlivable inthe summer without a significant A/C commitment. The pool being dark blue will insure it is a hot tub May through October. This home has huge potential but as currently configured and outfitted it will be a nightmare. Landscaping is A plus. Interior decorating is Onekinddesign predictable: uncomfortably modern and trying too hard.
