Located at the Reserve at Lake Travis, the new Farmhouse Collection features sixteen urban-inspired, contemporary, custom farmhouse homes. The Reserve recently hosted their grand opening event to view the model home, complete with live music, food, drinks, and activities. Mark Carlson, a founding partner here at Cornerstone Architects and project architect for the Farmhouse Collection project, attended the event.
“This is where the ranch meets the lake. We wanted to create vintage style farmhouses, so we detached the garage from the house to give the homes that old farmhouse style and charm.”
With four different floor plans, the homes range from 1,500 to 2,800 square feet. The base plan is a single story, two bedroom, two bath, single living home, while the largest plan expands to a two story, four bedroom, two living home which includes a bunk room for kids. Detached garages are situated to provide front courtyards to each home. These courtyards are enclosed with old dry stack 42” high stone walls. Primarily designed as vacation homes, most of the farmhouses have lake views from the first or second floor. One unique aspect of these plans is that the first floor is identical in all the designs where only the second floor has different bedroom and living configurations.
Anchoring the Farmhouse community is a repurposed horse barn, which was converted into the Reserve’s community activity center, also designed by Mark Carlson. Reclaimed wood covers the interior walls, and old tin siding lines the ceilings and windows. The rustic activity center offers massive TV screens, pool tables, shuffle board, outdoor grill and video games, while providing beautiful views to Lake Travis. Adjacent to the activity center is a large park area with walking trails.
In addition to the Farmhouse Collection, Cornerstone Architects is also working on the Sky Loft Condominiums and the Cypress Cove Treehouses, both waterfront communities coming soon to the Reserve at Lake Travis!
