This 5,462-square-foot home on 1.23 acres is described as a modern villa, a term that suits it. The formal grounds play with the villa concept, but they also suit Austin architect Brian Dillard's contemporary home design, which strategically incorporates bold color in a way that brings to mind such Mexican modernists as Luis Barragan and Ricardo Legorreta.
Organizing the five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath house around a courtyard, meanwhile, echoes traditional Mexican architecture—though putting an infinity pool there is avery West Lake touch—and terrazzo floors and murano light fixtures pick up the feel, adding an Italianate twist (as well as being beautiful).
The property also features a guest house with a wall of retractable glass, wet bar, and full bathroom.
