This unique home in Marfa was designed to capture the beauty of the widespread views of its skies. A modern layout that incorporates an open floor plan and materials like concrete, glass and steel. The home contains a large living room & kitchen, a bedroom & bathroom, a washroom & guest bathroom. The separate "Jack and Jill" guest house has two bedrooms connected by a full bath. At 2,475 square feet, this house is organized around a central courtyard filled with wildflowers that host butterflies & hummingbirds. 43 20-foot-deep piers stabilize the house against West Texas winds. The south-facing façade opens to a wonderful & peaceful outdoor deck overlooking Marfa. Architectural plans have been drawn up for a studio above the garage. The design copies the layout of the main house. The foundation for the studio is already there. On more than 3/4 acre, the lot allows for additions, such as a swimming pool, other buildings and an arbor. The views from the living room & balcony may be the most unexpected in the area. It focuses on Marfa itself from the south and side of the house. Prominently perched on a rocky rise that's the highest point in town, it looks at the iconic courthouse & cityscape, & the stretch of horizon beyond. The deck is an outpost to watch starry skies, gorgeous sunsets, thunderstorms with lightening rolling in from the south and the ever-changing clouds. Inside, there are concrete floors and wooden sliding doors with translucent glass. Which are an upscale replacement for regular interior doors. Concrete countertops in the kitchen, bathrooms and washroom which were made exclusively by Lancaster design in Alpine.
