DANZE + DAVIS
ROLLING HILLS VIEW
A collaborative effort between architect, builder, client, and sloped topography allowed this couples dream home to become reality. Utilizing what the earth provided proved excellent for a two-story, walk-out basement, open floor plan custom home perfectly sited around mature native trees. The exterior of the home ties in beautifully with the landscape by using locally sourced limestone, cedar beams, wood ceilings and accents, and mixed materials to create dramatic roofline interest.
Energy star certification and maximum energy efficiency was achieved by tucking this home into the side of the naturally sloped hill. Like all Younger Homes, spray foam insulation of the full wall cavity + attic encapsulation with the our proprietary air sealing package, enables the homeowner to operate their 4,400, square-foot, two-story home on one 18 SEER variable speed variable tonnage Energy Star Certified HVAC System.
Upon entry through the foyer, the dramatic view of the Texas Hill Country is framed via a wall of windows and sliders, making this open concept floor plan feel completely nestled into the natural surroundings. The home office is set apart by a cantilevered corner entry to optimize daylighting and space. Perhaps the most stunning and custom portion of the entire home was built around the homeowners' desire for an oversized game room. This 800+ square foot space is defined by a dramatic vault with exposed beams and an oversized direct vent fireplace to efficiently heat the space in the cooler months while maintaining excellent air quality.
