This Bouldin Creek home designed by local architect Camille Jobe was in scads of magazines and on the AIA Home Tour after its 2006 debut. Popular landscape design firm Mark Word Design, which has made its mark with its work local landmarks from Austin Motel to Green Pastures, contributed its distinctive sensibilities to the ground, which include an inviting interior courtyard.

Taken together, the two created a property with defining rustic-modern features that place it firmly in the early aughts: mesquite floors, custom fabricated staircase, cold rolled steel details, Italian tile, and lots of rough finishes and Corten steel.

The two-story, wood-and-stucco home measures 2,442 square feet and has two bedrooms and three bathrooms, with much of the home given over to wide-open spaces with high ceilings and clerestory windows.

The interior features a large, open-plan room with multiple functions that encompasses much of the first floor.

The home is wrapped a round an inviting, private courtyard.

The downstairs bedroom opens on to the courtyard, while the upstairs one has a balcony overlooking it

The home has a two-car carport and gated parking in back.
