Summary
"Anchored by Austin and San Antonio, Texas Hill Country is celebrated for its frontier history and natural beauty. Architects and interior designers build contemporary houses using local materials and drawing on the area's diverse heritage--Spanish Colonial missions and Mexican-style haciendas, French pioneers' log cabins, German stonework, and the legacy of the "new regionalism" espoused by O'Neil Ford in the 1930s--to create inspired residences that respect tradition and allow their owners to enjoy expansive rural surroundings. This volume presents nineteen of the area's most remarkable private houses, with lush photography to provide a glimpse of how life in Central Texas is unique--from restored Victorian houses in bohemian Southtown, to a glass-walled ranch in Boerne canopied by oak trees; from floating stairs and sustainable systems to the casual elegance of country antiques, screen porches, and longleaf pine floors."--Publisher's website
