Tuscan Hill Country

April 1, 2010 · New Build

Stone House Set in the Vineyard area of San Antonio, TX, this Tuscan style home gets a hill country feel from a combination of stucco and sandstone.
A true custom home, this Great Room was designed by the home owner and brought to life by the Solace Creek team. The family area hosts a custom designed 48-inch fireplace, surrounded by chopped mocha sandstone that tapers from the floor to an impressive 25 foot vaulted ceiling. To complete the rustic feel, stained concrete floors and wrought iron railings were hand selected for the stairs.
A custom designed wine wall nestled under the stair case gives this homeowner the feel of a luxurious wine room without the need for extra square footage.
Doubling as a breakfast area with bar stools, this one-of-a-kind kitchen island features custom maple cabinets, commercial grade appliances, beautiful granite counter tops, a dishwasher, and undermount sink.

Brandon and Kim Wheeler Owner

"This is my third home and first custom home to build.  We had heard many horror stories about building a custom home but I am very pleased to say the experience we had with Derek was exceptional.  We brought a blue print to Derek for the house of our dreams and Derek turned it into a reality with additional, yet economical, upgrades like 20' stone fireplace, wine room, mud area, etc to make it really stand out compared to other homes in our neighborhood.  Not only was the work of high quality but his vision was surprising and appreciated.  Along the way we made several changes and he still finished our project on time and on budget! I frequently showed up unannounced while our home was under construction. Derek was always there and very patient in answering my questions.  Our entire experience from design phase to house warming party was absolutely exceptional.  Derek started our project as a Contractor but soon became our partner and now a friend! Thanks for all your hard work, dedication and partnership."
