Description

In the heart of a small desert city known for its art and stargazing, this dreamy architectural masterpiece seamlessly entwines with the vast surrounding landscape. A combination of two distinct modern structures by two different architects, Berkeley-based Rael san Fratello and Tucson-based DUST, this unique property pushes the boundaries of what a home is or could be. In the first structure, a chef’s kitchen flows into a large living space, opening to an enclosed courtyard and private sculpture garden, furthering the expansive, open volumes. Radiant, with natural light throughout, there is also a bedroom, a full bathroom, and a covered patio off the kitchen. Organic materials contrast against industrial elements, as exposed Adobe brick walls mingle with concrete, aluminum, and glass. Disciplined design brings rough and smooth surfaces together, utilizing a minimalist palette that acts as the perfect backdrop for exhibiting art. The second structure, houses the primary bedroom, studio/lounge, and master bath, with floor-to-ceiling windows carefully framing the surrounding mountain views. A private garden courtyard extends the bedroom and bath spaces. Outdoor patios, native plantings, and cascading water features dotted across the four-acre property, enhance the nature experience. This hard-to-find acreage is uniquely positioned for further compound expansion and privacy. All electric for the property is powered by solar panels. Featured in a coffee table publication on the artistic interiors of West Texas, this home is its own work of art, which makes it the perfect Marfa landmark. Originally a West Texas Ranching community, this once sleepy town in the Chihuahuan Desert, has become a world-renowned art destination, after the iconic minimalist artist Donald Judd fell in love with the open spaces of the high desert plain, establishing multiple permanent installations of his work in Marfa.
