An expansive compound with a barn, guest house, and main house will be tucked away on a 10-acre wooded property in Texas Hill Country.
Greystone Point was inspired by the South American estancia style of large rural ranches (McMahon won top honors in last year’s Design Awards for a finished house built in that style). All the buildings play off the main courtyard, which contains a pool, spa, and tiered deck, along with trees, rocks, and vegetation. Sloping terrain offers miles-long views to the west. The buildings sit deep within the property for added privacy.
“It truly feels as if you’re on a much larger ranch property, as you can’t see any neighboring homes,” McMahon says.
The 5,500-square-foot main house has an open-layout kitchen and a dining room, living room, and covered patio. One wing of the house contains two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a family room, while the other has a master suite and covered patio. An 1,100-square-foot guest house has two-bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a smaller-scale open living room, dining room, kitchenette, and patio. A 1,200-square-foot barn is clad with locally quarried limestone, as are the two houses.
Construction began earlier this year and will take 12 to 14 months to complete, due to the size of the project.
