You’ve chosen your lot; you’re ready to build your Austin luxury real estate…What do you need to do to make sure you take advantage of that killer view?

At Sterling Custom Homes, we love to be involved with our clients from the very start. Laying out the footprint of the home is an important first step in the design process and it requires careful consideration. Of course most clients are interested in maximizing a certain view corridor, but there are many other variables at play that need to be discussed. Sun orientation, slab heights, trees, access – these are just a few of the topics that arise when we meet on the lot with our client and the architect. Once these topics are discussed, we can assess which views are most important to the client and from which rooms they would like the views to be seen.

The above picture illustrates the design of this Lake Travis home which frames the view of the cove leading to the main body of Lake Travis. What you don’t see are the many factors that were considered before the decision was made to adopt this orientation and maximize the view. The home is actually turned at the end of an entry corridor to look out over the back right corner of the lot, rather than looking directly back parallel from the street. The results are spectacular!

Our 22 years of experience as one of the area’s premier Austin home builders allows us to help our clients understand the impact of these important design decisions, guiding them to the layout that best fits their budgetary and aesthetic goals.
