Austin Luxury Custom Home Builder Awarded National Best in American Living Award
The award winning Zbranek & Holt Custom Homes project is located in Horseshoe Bay along the shores of Lake LBJ. Dallas based architectural firm, HKS, noted for designing the Dallas Cowboys Stadium served as both the architects and interior designers on the project. The magnificent 16000 square foot lakefront retreat sits on the tip of a peninsula along the southern side of Lake LBJ and provides one of the most expansive views in Horseshoe Bay. The design focused on creating a Mediterranean style retreat taking advantage of its incredible waterfront location with the outdoor living space playing a critical role in design. The floor plan is structured around the expansive Great Room with the integrated outdoor living spaces on the front and lake side completing the open, airy design. This enormous project was completed in fewer than two years with both the homeowners and architectural firm located in other cities during the entire construction period.
“This was a challenging and fun project. It required a full time, senior project manager on site throughout construction,” says Owner/Partner Tony Holt.”The blueprints were 56 pages long and every detail that would appear on the finished product was covered. The one thing that was not different about building this magnificent home was our contractor and supplier team. The Zbranek & Holt construction group is the best in the business, I think. Their ability to transform this building from blueprints to a Best in America Living Award winner is a testament to their skill and dedication levels.”
