Residential Designer Jewel
Austin, TX, USA
This secluded and private designer residence is located within a group of just seventeen homes covering 150 acres, located between Westlake Village and the Galleria at Bee Caves. Sweeping hillside views and glorious sunset reflections in the edgeless pool are complemented by the inspired landscaping of D-Crain. Their work has imaginatively combined formal and playful design elements with native growth and cover to create lawn, patio and tree-ringed terraces for entertaining, cool shady groves for promenades, and a graceful setting for an extraordinary, totally unexpected private garden bursting with European tea roses. With over two hundred mature bushes and trees, all chosen for their stunning colors, fragrance, and repeat blooms, each season will witness several thousand classically perfumed rose beauties.
No less assured is the precise front lawn, complementing the formal building facade, though protecting this from direct view with mature original and selected new trees. In this way, the surrounding gardens complement the house, and the whole is carefully integrated into the pattern of the hillside.
