Giving the old Dogtrot style a contemporary makeover, the weekend getaway uses limestone, wood and glass in a balanced and beautiful fashion.

Crafted by architect Stuart Sampley, this gorgeous home welcomes you with a sunken living room that allows you to escape the midday Texas heat with a quick, refreshing nap. The sunken space also offers ample privacy and gives the interior an air of luxury. A modern kitchen in neutral shades is enlivened by pops of yellow and cheerful bar stools.
