Step into a spectacular modern dream home in the Texas Hill Country


Dick Clark + Associates have designed this spectacular modern dream home nestled on a sprawling 4-acre property in the foothills of the Hill Country in Austin, Texas. The owner desired for their dwelling to be immersed with nature instead of being up on the hill where views would be maximized.

The result is a beautiful interplay between landscape and structure, where each one is grabbing the attention of the other around every corner. Step inside this bright and airy home through steel frame glass doors where contemporary artwork and stylish furnishings welcome you.



What a beautiful entry so warm with the wood and those floor-to-ceiling windows and doors.


To enhance privacy and maximize the beautiful natural surroundings, the architects nestled the structure deep into the site. They collaborated integrally with the landscape architect to achieve the perfect balance between the environmental setting and positioning.

What We Love: This modern dream home in Texas strikes the perfect balance of urban amenities and the tranquility of nature. The low-profile home offers an abundance of privacy from the street thanks to the way it was orientated on the site and the surrounding large oak trees. We are loving all of the attention to detail throughout this home, from the material selections to the finishes and furnishings and the wonderful indoor-outdoor connection.
