Enfield Road, a gateway street into the historic neighborhoods of west Austin. On a stunning property of over an acre, covered with live oaks, Phil Pokorny has designed a home that is worthy of it's landmark site.
With a deep front setback from Enfield road, the front elevation is a stately traditional 2-story colonial that is framed between the live oaks of the front lawn. White lap siding and black shutters, the home fits elegantly into the fabric of the community.
At the west side wing along the more intimate Kent Street, the exterior forms of the home are purposely more human scaled. Second story spaces are tucked under roofs with dormered windows, creating smaller massing and a different feel for the "daily use" approach to the home. Here is the welcoming side porch entrance, and an open breezeway that connects to a carriage house garage.
