The 2014 Texas Monthly Texas Star home is open to the public during the 2014 Parade of Homes™ tour taking place now thru May 11. Commanding a hilltop position, this home has views that are as important as any of its architectural elements.

“You’ve got incredible vistas of the hills from every window and the winding Pedernales glittering beyond—it’s pretty magical”

notes Heather Scott who is designing the interiors for builder/ developer Silverton Homes. At the heart of the 4,400-square-foot house is a spectacular living area that opens onto a covered porch. The home boasts five bedrooms and baths and a separate casita off the kitchen with its own entry and private patio, perfect for cocktails at sunset. Steps from the main kitchen is a unique utility-room hybrid with full prep kitchen, laundry, and abundant storage to make it Command Central for daily life or extra work-space when entertaining.

“The media room creates an authentic experience,”

says builder Mike Grimm of the upstairs home theater.

“It has a 90-foot display screen! Wow!”

With exteriors that mix elements of stone, stucco, and forged iron, this is a home that fits the landscape like a pair of custom-tooled boots.
