This house sits atop a bluff overlooking the convergence of the Pedernales River and Lake Travis and for a decade had been a weekend respite for a busy Houston family. But the house was dark and didn’t take advantage of the spectacular views, so the couple hired Austin-based FAB Architecture and interior designer Fern Santini to bring new life to the site they loved.
The transformation reorganized and repurposed spaces to encourage a sense of leisure and community.
A balance of youthfulness and restraint was the goal.
More kitchen detail.
The soaring entry hall is the centerpiece of the house and serves as a dining room, a place to listen to music, or a venue to play games with friends and family. This light-filled space brings the lake and views of the Hill Country into the heart of the home.
The house is at once joyful, sophisticated, and glamorous with a touch of rustic.
The master bedroom comes alive with electric blue accents.
Outside areas double as living and dining spaces.
The porch is a four-season space thanks to a fireplace.
A stair tower leads to a guest suite.
The guest suite has a view of the river and the Hill Country.
