Ski Shores Lakehouse by Stuart Sampley Architect
Inspiring lakeside residence designed in 2013 by Stuart Sampley Architect located in Ski Shores, Austin, Texas, United States.
Description by Stuart Sampley Architect
The spirit of traditional Texas dogtrot-style architecture is modernly refined in this modest weekend lake house. Two volumes flank a central porch that’s naturally cooled by lake breezes, capped on each end by tall, swinging gates for privacy and security, and anchored by a substantial outdoor dining table. On one side, a sleek, modern kitchen is minimal in material but heavy on style and storage. A sunken living room— highlighted by rich warm wood underfoot — exudes comfort and is the ideal spot to escape the Texas summer heat. On the other side of the porch, cozy bedrooms balance the house, featuring big windows offering views of the Texas landscape.
The home’s materials were sourced regionally and chosen to last; exterior walls made of gray Texas Lueders Limestone mix with Southern yellow pine to create a natural palette that requires no maintenance. It’s a weekend getaway the homeowner can enjoy for decades to come.
