John and Peggy Davis came to me with an extremely narrow lot on Lake Travis. They have lake access with the intent of having a floating pier at some point. The design of the house reflects the narrowness of the lot. The primary rooms, the Great Room, Master, Kitchen and Breakfast were those that the Davis's wanted to have a lake view.

We were able to "steal" some space for a lake view by having the breakfast room situated over the lower driveway in a Porte Cochere of a sort. The covered porch also serves double duty by serving as the roof for the carport. The Davis's are fans of Lake/Flato and homes that reflect a Texas Regional Style. The elevation incorporates the narrow lot with the client's vision in an elegant and contemporary Texas stone and stucco home.
