RisherMartin Fine Homesrecently broke ground on an exciting new project located near Barton Creek Mall. This new custom home is being built for a local Austin architect Richard Weiss, and his family, who specializes in modern architecture. Clean lines, beautiful stone work and stucco, as well as a metal roof with up to four foot overhangs, will all contribute to the exterior’s gracefulness and prairie style architecture. When complete, this two story home with a walk out basement will compliment the site’s difficult topography as well as providing a gorgeous panoramic view of downtown Austin. In addition to thoughtful architecture, great time has been taken to ensure this home’s “footprint” is carefully planned. With a goal of Five Stars, material selections, construction techniques, and home orientation were all carefully planned. If awarded Five Stars by Austin Energy’s Green Building Program, this home will join the exclusive club receiving the highest rating in the program.
Lot clearing began last week and we are looking forward to watching this new home rise over the next few months. We will continue to post progress reports and photos as they become available.
