Monolith House is an architecturally innovative, unapologetically modern structure that defines a new architectural style: Neolithic Revival. The home uses its dramatic and modern design to seamlessly integrate and showcase the natural beauty of the Texas Hill Country and Guadalupe River. Majestically situated on five acres of river-front property, this home artfully brings life in harmony with nature. Masterfully designed and ecologically engineered, the Monolith House operates in concert with nature, harvesting much of its light and wintertime warmth from the sun and its water from rain.
Monolith House is built of concrete and uses an advanced construction technique which gives this home its signature, sculptural look and velvety-concrete finish. The concrete is complemented by expansive, floor-to-ceiling glass throughout the main living spaces and bedrooms, giving unobstructed views of the nature beyond and providing seamless indoor-outdoor spaces to relax, work, or entertain.
The home was designed and built by an award-winning Architectural-Engineering firm that specializes in developing hotels and resorts. This hospitality expertise is evident throughout the property, which is thoughtfully designed to simultaneously provide secluded, intimate settings to retreat and grand spaces to effortlessly gather and entertain. The minimalist, neutral palette throughout the home gives a soothing and unified feel. Velvety-concrete walls, soaring glass, matte black hardware and consistent white oak cabinetry, paneling and doors creates a simple and warm aesthetic that allows the brilliance of the architecture to shine. Monolith House uses materials and fixtures that are easy to clean and maintain, a hallmark of hospitality design.
The great room is open concept, with varied ceiling height cleverly used to create a sense of distinct space and flow. The chef's kitchen features double islands, a breakfast bar, and designer appliances while overlooking the family room and dining area - all with a breathtaking view of the pool and river.
The open concept primary suite is designed to capture long-line views of nature. The double-sided, sculptural concrete fireplace adjoining the lavish primary bedroom and bathroom provides subtle warmth, ambiance, and a strong architectural presence to the room. The east section of the house features three en-suite bedrooms, three and a half baths, a home office, and laundry room. The fourth bedroom features tall ceilings and dramatic chandeliers with a large unobstructed area that could be a bedroom, cinema room, game room, conference room, or home gym.
Relish the outdoors with the breathtaking 60-foot resort-inspired negative edge pool and hot tub against the backdrop of the running river. Relax in the sunken, outdoor living area, complete with outdoor fireplace and cantilevered awning, making this outdoor space comfortable throughout the year. Walk down the rolling grassy slopes and enjoy a sunset while sitting on the banks of the Guadalupe River under the shade and beauty of cyprus and pecan trees. Built to live effortlessly and elegantly, the Monolith House is both soothing and dramatic and its high-design delivers an unmatched lifestyle to its residents and guests.
