Del Norte Residence
The house is L-shaped, arranged on the site to create a park-like setting. Five majestic trees dominate the back and front of the property. The house is transparent from a private front garden, through the house, to private rear garden making the Kitchen and Dining rooms feel like one large open porch. An adjacent screened porch extends this idea, nestled in the branches of a Live Oak tree. The Master Bedroom features a private side-yard garden and direct access to the swimming pool. There are no direct views into neighboring East and West lots. This idea creates privacy for both the owner as well as the neighbors, as well as celebrating the indirect northern light which is most desirable for the Texas climate.
