"THE CLIENTS WANTED TO UPDATE WITH MODERN ARCHITECTURE AND AMENITIES YET STILL KEEP THE FARM-RANCH FEEL." —brooke pitner Bonterra Design Build helped to turn an old ranch into a personal country club for the owners. far left and left: The renovated pool area now features a standalone professional gym with a locker room; above: The owners can play tennis or watch a TV match courtside in their new pavilion; reclaimed wood not only gives the guest house kitchen (below) a rustic feel, but it creates a hidden door to the study. clean aesthetic, they integrated rustic touches throughout, such as the reclaimed wood from an 1800s Pennsylvania barn used in the beams in the main house and gym. And, on top of it all, the property is still a working farm, with chickens, goats, and turkeys, and a private vineyard featuring Sangiovese grapes is being developed with the help of Southern Landscapes. In one day, the owners can collect fresh eggs for breakfast; work out in the professional gym and rinse off in the locker room before relaxing in the hot tub; play a round of tennis; check on the grapes in the vineyard; and cook dinner on the deck while taking in a Hill Country sunset. It's Bonterra's most ambitious project to date and an exciting one at that. "Everything we do is very focused on attention, because we are selective of the projects," say Brooke Pitner. The tennis pavilion caters to the passion of one of the homeowners, who played the sport in college, and a hidden door creates an intimate writing space for both owners, who are accomplished writers. Adds Austin Pitner: "We would much rather be involved with great clients than a really attrac- tive project, because we want every experience to be awesome for us and the clients." .
