Mod house in hobbit-like setting

Finally, there’s a way to live in West Lake Hills without being open about it. This home isn’t hidden, exactly, but it’s set back on a deeply wooded acre in the heart of the neighborhood, reached by a trail that is marked by a 1970s-inspired, mod sign that reads “Home.”

The home in question, however, wasn’t built in the 1970s, but rather that more recent decade of bold aesthetic choices, the 1990s (1992, to be exact). The exterior of the 2,450-square-foot retreat is boxy and gray-brown, the color no doubt intended to blend in with the pathways, ponds, and terraced stone garden beds that make up its woodsy surroundings.

Expansive windows and sliding glass doors lead to a large, well-lighted, open room, one that includes a gray-brick fireplace surround, fire-engine-red tile breakfast bar, and a sort of hanging garden over the kitchen (bold choices!).

The home has three bedrooms and two and half bathrooms, as well as a deck that stretches the length of the house, with a workshop and studio below.

There are great views from almost every room, including bedrooms.

The grounds’ paths lead to water features and sculptural elements. Underneath the deck is a workshop and studio

The expansive deck has space for hot tub, an entertainment areas, and incredible views.
