Bestselling Contemporary Design

Does this home look familiar? It was named number ten on the list of Top Selling House Plans from 2013, the only contemporary plan to rank. The layout displays excellent integration with the outdoors via a side-courtyard layout that maximizes the lot. Most rooms open to this outdoor living area, including the secluded guest suite and the luxurious master suite, well-outfitted with its own patio that features a hanging bed for lounging outside. Don’t miss the large kitchen island or the kid-friendly second floor with a media room and loft.

Award-Winning Style

This popular Hill Country home also made it onto the list of bestsellers at position eight. Spectacular views over the hillside are captured by the wall of windows that lines the great room. The porch that stretches across the back of the home offers another spot from which to enjoy the view. Family bedrooms are arranged for privacy, with the master retreat featuring its own porch. The stairwell leads up a windowed tower that brings light to this interior space. This home won first place at the 2009 American Residential Design Awards in the Custom Luxury category.
