2011 Parde of Homes

This magnificent Craftsman Texas Ranch style home shows the meticulous attention to detail and commitment to the client’s wishes that is the hallmark of award-winning builder, Homes by Donahoo. This is evident from the fireplace with three different styles of stonework under the exposed-beam cathedral ceiling to the carefully detailed built-in cabinets for the bar and throughout the home. The view from the bank of living room windows looks out over a water feature of three graduated towers of Leuders stone on to a scenic Texas hill country view that stretches nearly 50 miles.

The home has an urban lodge feel enhanced by contemporary hand-forged iron chandeliers plus pendants and sconces with green onyx shades. This unique modern touch carries to the bedrooms and baths with lighting fixtures of brushed nickel and on to the expansive outdoor living space with the contemporary iron railing.


The main floor is covered in a stunning brushed-finish, chipped-edge Acapulco stone in a Versailles pattern.  In the kitchen, finely detailed Hickory kitchen cabinets surround expansive granite countertops with an antique finish. Porcelain wood-grain tile in a “saddle” color graces the floors of the two guest bedrooms.

Other details are cedar beams adorning open doorways, cedar overhead doors in the garage, a large soaking tub in the master bath, a double stepped ceiling with coved lighting in the master bedroom and a mud area with built in cubbies for shoes in the laundry room.

This home is in the section of the parade held in the Trails of Horseshoe Bay, a beautiful community with spectacular Hill country and lake views. The subdivision includes an equestrian center, a private marina and trails for hiking and horseback riding.
