This earthen luxury home combines stunning desert aesthetics with modern architecture.
You might balk at a two-bedroom adobe home in the West Texas desert being listed for $3.5 million, but it's a stunning blend of natural components and modern accents that give it the hefty price tag. Known as Marfa Modern, this stunning two-bedroom, two-bathroom residence is a combination of modern structures designed by two earthen structure architects: Berkeley-based Rael San Fratello and Tucson-based DUST, according to a news release.
Kuper Sotheby's is handling this high desert listing.
With the right furniture this desert home turns in modern marvel.
Dubbed an "architectural masterpiece," this one-of-a-kind property sits on 4 acres with two separate buildings connected by an outdoor path. Both homes have exposed block walls, concrete floors, and white-oak doors to match the Marfa aesthetic. The first building includes a chef's kitchen and enclosed courtyard that opens into the living space for a true indoor-outdoor feel.
The view from the office could lead to some great inspiration.
This attention to detail extends to the exterior, which includes water features and native landscaping inspired by the surrounding desert. Multiple outdoor patios provide sweeping views of the Davis Mountains and the Chihuahuan Desert, according to the listing. All electricity on the property is provided by solar panels.
The mixture of modern among the barren desert takes inspiration from artists like the iconic Donald Judd, who moved from New York City to Marfa in 1973.
The earthen brown walls in this desert home are consistent throughout.
