This recent Star Award Finalist and Master Bedroom finds just the right balance between the Mediterranean style and modern technology. The elegant reading nook, complete with exquisite ceiling details and large chandelier, boasts automatic curtains programmed to open in the morning and close at night but capable of closing anytime. When they are closed, the room becomes completely dark, which is great for those summertime naps. This spot sports one of the best views of Lake Travis in the home; so, if napping is not your thing, then just take a moment to sit and enjoy the view. The metallic plaster finish on the walls in the room provide an updated application to an old technique, giving the room an old-world feel with a touch of elegant panache.
The private courtyard and garden, not pictured here, is accessible from the Master Bedroom. It creates a place of quiet solace with its self-watering garden, integrated into a stone wall, and warmth in the winter with its wood-burning fireplace.
The Master Bedroom, and entire Master Suite, is one of the most private locations in the home, placed at the far end and away from the flow of traffic. The size of the room is just right, cozy enough for a bedroom but large enough to contain several seating areas.
Whether it is the adjoining private courtyard, complete with self-watering garden and wood-burning fireplace or the cut stone fireplace with flat panel TV above, every aspect of this room is appealing. It is no wonder this home, designed and built by Jenkins Custom Homes, has been nominated as one of the Best in Texas, as a finalist in the Texas Association of Builders’ Star Awards.
