Welcome, to the Hilltop Farmstead Project

For as long as it takes we will be sharing every last fanciful detail from the Grit designed and Grit built #hilltopfarmstead project. We invite you to join us today and in the future as we dive deep and bring you along to see just what it means to us at Grit to build truly unique, and high end custom homes.

This gorgeous design blends the ever so popular modern farmhouse, with a heavy ration of southern charm, and a flare of the southwest into a brilliant and inviting family home that overlooks the family Malbec vineyard! The client’s are an eclectic, but organized couple, and their style is brought to life with the clean, organized lines, scales, and layout that is interrupted ever so subtly by flashes of color, texture, and contrasting materials.

The Hilltop Farmstead plan includes 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, a stunning powder room, our most favorite office ever that can convert to a library or den, great room, butler’s pantry, pantry, mud room, and drool-worthy laundry room, a stair case right out of a Santa Fe fort, incredible fireplace details… ok I’m out of breath. Just come back and read our blog for all this and so much more!

By way of blessings and good fortune, the client’s had a section of Texas Hill Country to situate the homestead on. That alone presented a challenge for the design. With views for almost 360 degrees, an operational vineyard, dramatic elevation changes over the lot, and a floor plan fit to entertain guests, every attention to the orientation of the project was given. The home ended up a real compliment to the surrounding romance of the hills, but is not too majestic to drown out the farm and ranch it resides on, nor the God-fearing, work-with-your-hands temperament of our clients. Of course, special care was given to keep the surrounding oaks in good health, and at no time were chemicals allowed that would impact the vineyard only a hundred yards away.

That’s a wrap on your intro to Hilltop Farmstead, come on back to catch all the details!
