Featuring an elegant home designed with an expert eye toward modern, sustainable design, this Dripping Springs house is surrounded by a grove of live oaks on more than six acres. (Listed by The Value of Architecture, it’s also not currently on the MLS.)
Designed by local architect Christy Seals, the home combines sustainability and a sophisticated design approach that references American modernist traditions. The one-story main house has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms and features oak floors, natural stone counters, handmade tile, wall-sized and clerestory windows, and custom floating cabinetry. Sustainability features include its passive-solar siting, ICF (insulated concrete form) construction, and double-glazed windows.
In addition, there’s a 746-square-foot guest house with one bedroom and one bathroom (total square feet for both homes is 4,778) as well as a working barn with a machine shop.
