The Best Seat in the House
Many of us have had the joys of visiting family or friends in a great old neighborhood that was dotted with gracious porches and lined with child-friendly sidewalks. A few of us were actually lucky enough to have grown up there. Whether we realize it or not, there was a security in knowing that it was possible to walk to the park or just sit on the porch and watch a father play catch with his son. The unique design of 7 Porticos will make these experiences possible again.
A Lot to Gain
The fringe of the neighborhood green will be dotted with small cottages for the occasional guest, an aging parent or even a summer home for visiting college students. These same cottages make a great studio or office that is within walking distance of your home. This private park will create a sense of urbanism without giving up the beautiful views offered by the hill country. For those families who do not need this additional space, beautiful fountains, classic sculpture, or even formal gardens can be their family’s contribution to the park.
The Cement Pond
When the workday is done, families can enjoy a cool respite by the pool, which is modeled after the creeks of Texas. The “zero entry” and natural outcroppings allow people of all ages to enjoy the pool at their own pace. Beside the pool, friends and neighbors can gather for an impromptu cookout or visit around the outdoor fireplace. The beautiful setting provides wonderful areas for cool reflection and relaxation in a natural environment.
A Place to Relax
7 Porticos also features 3 acres of neighborhood parkland located in the center of the community. The area is filled with natural Texas flowers and landscape and is surrounded with a walking/jogging path.
Less Can Be More
The strength of this neighborhood lies in its focus on quality architecture and design, rather than square footage. This focus is what separates timeless neighborhoods from the typical subdivision. As such, homesteads shall be a minimum of 1500 square feet; each designed using historically inspired guidelines. Thoughtful detailing and true craftsmanship will be required.
