A modern ranch home perched on a Texas hilltop has picturesque views

rustic-ranch-house-exterior

This modern ranch home was designed by J Christopher Architecture, located in Weatherford, a city of Parker County, Texas. Perched high on a hilltop and nestled among the trees this dwelling claims its rightful place on a picturesque 200-acre property.

Born from the owner’s desire for an ample but understated home, this natural and simple architectural expression blends effortlessly into the landscape that surrounds it. Heavy timber columns and stone walls ground the home to the site.

Reclaimed siding and simple barn-like structures give the architecture a sense of history and regional belonging.

At the rear of this dwelling, expansive porches and windows create idyllic spaces to soak in the picturesque views. A meandering single-story design concept was used to optimize view opportunities from nearly every room.

In the distance, a gently winding road and an enhanced lake are the primary focal points. The now 20+ acre lake was actually an added bonus as part of a solution to mitigate excess drainage coming onto the property.

The single-story design and orientation also work to minimize western exposure. Careful consideration was given to the placement of windows and several solar studies were done to assure that the porches would be sheltered from the hot Texas sun.

Referencing the owner’s love of the old west, many of the interior walls will showcase the same stone and wood that is on the exterior of the home. This gesture alludes to a time when materials were not mass-produced but simply gathered from the area and formed as needed.

While spaces don’t feel bound by contemporary building techniques, modern technology such as home automation and spray foam insulation are still very active within the walls.
