Skull Creek Ranch is located in the Texas Hill Country, just outside of Medina, on over 700 acres of breathtaking views of the Texas countryside, limestone bluffs, steep draws, and spring fed creeks and streams. Inspired from the natural characteristics of the site, the home frames specific moments and captures opportunities presented in landscape.
With 6 bedrooms, 6 baths, and 2 half-baths, Skull Creek Ranch House accomplishes client wishes for a home with comfortable and cozy spaces typical of a Texas ranch house, yet flexible enough to easily host larger groups of family and friends without losing that appeal. The result utilizes the site’s topography to create two levels of living, united in character and interior vertical connections, and the house is situated for ideal solar orientation and takes advantage of constant prevailing breezes that flow down the valley. Features include Texas Post Oak wood flooring made from naturally fallen trees, locally quarried limestone, and exposed concrete lintels executed in manner reminiscent of structures built by German immigrants to the area.
