Texas architect George Marvin Watson, Jr. designed this two-bedroom two bath contemporary home with a spacious studio that serves as a third bedroom master suite. The home is situated on 1.43 acres of Delores Mountain and is configured so each window purposely frames the surrounding mountain views.
The main living area is an open floor plan that flows into an informal dining area and kitchen with spacious butcher block breakfast bar. The kitchen is equipped with ample storage and counter space and a gas cooking range and pantry. Doors and windows are situated to filter the natural light.
Tall ceilings are accented with galvanized metal and exposed wood beams. A screened double door opens from the living area onto a flagstone patio with a pond and expansive views of the mountains and valley to the south. The living area features wood burning stove and a mini-split system to provide heating and cooling. A bedroom or possible library with built in wood shelves, bureau and bed platform is adjacent to the living area and enjoys private access to a screened porch with views of the mountains to the east. A modern bath with walk-in shower and large vanity with stainless steel sink is accessible from the bedroom. Continuing through the bath is a large walk-in closet that opens onto the laundry-utility room with access to the front entry yard. These rooms comprise the main wing of the home.
Connected to the utility room is an enclosed green house and potting room with utility sink – a perfect winter home for your potted plants or to grow vegetable seedlings. There is access to the side yard and the rainwater storage tank through a side door. A second bedroom is accessible from the green house and features a bath with walk-in shower en suite, platform bed and separate closet. Located on the north and west side of the home is the expansive studio space or in the current configuration, a master suite. The space features large windows facing to the north, a built-in desk and separate storage area or closet. A private entrance allows for access to the front yard of the home.
At the rear of the property is an enclosure with concrete raised garden beds for growing herbs and to transition seedlings. Mature apricot and peach trees are found in the side yard. The entire 1.43 acres are fenced in addition to there being a fenced yard and patio area around the home. A single car garage is attached, and a gated driveway provides for added privacy.
Built of concrete panels and accented with galvanized metal exterior siding and stucco the home conveys a oneness with the rugged West Texas landscape outside.
