BOOT RANCH TO HOST 2017 TEXAS MONTHLY HILL COUNTRY SHOW HOME

“If you’re looking for the best examples of both historic and contemporary architecture in Texas, the Hill Country is where you’ll find them,” says David Dunham, Publisher of Texas Monthly. “At Boot Ranch, we found the perfect locale for the magazine’s first-ever Hill Country Show Home, and we hope many of our readers will make plans to see it.”

Set on a 1.75-acre high-elevation homesite in the center of the 2,050-acre Boot Ranch private club community, the Show Home takes advantage of distant Hill Country views that can be enjoyed from almost every room. Because Fredericksburg is the largest per capita tourist destination in Texas, the Show Home features large entertaining spaces as well as very private guest accommodations for visiting friends and family members.

Inspired by the original architecture of the Fredericksburg area, Chad Faucheux of the architectural firm Design Visions combined historic massing and materials with an open interior to create elegant scale in the Show Home. Interior designer Amy Slaughter selected finishes and furnishings that complement the architecture with a cool palette and rich textures. Custom home builder Matthew Mabery provided the best of Hill Country craftsmanship. Major sponsors Daltile and The Container Store contributed the home’s exceptional tiles, countertops, storage solutions and closet systems. Several works of art in the home have been purchased from sponsor Insight Gallery for the Boot Ranch permanent collection, and additional art and sculpture is
on loan from the gallery.

Behind every great house is always a great story
Craig Martin Mark Enderle

DEVELOPERS | Terra Verde Group | Craig Martin & Mark Enderle

Boot Ranch is a showplace for spectacular custom homes, some as large as 15,000 square feet, on lots ranging up to 18 acres. While demand for these estate properties remains strong, we’ve worked with more buyers in recent years who want homes under 5,000 square feet on just a couple acres of land and a price tag under $3 million. Whether they’re looking for a vacation home or a full-time residence, one thing is consistent—the desire for a no-hassle homebuilding process that creates a luxurious one-of-a-kind home without the typical headaches of designing and building a custom home from scratch.

In the case of the 2017 Texas Monthly Hill Country Show Home at Boot Ranch, his client was the developer and the goal was to create the first in a series of plans that satisfied unmet buyer demand for size (3,200-5,000 square feet), livability (great gathering spaces and private guest accommodations), and an abbreviated design/build timeframe.
