Curbed Homes of the Day come in all shapes and sizes, from retro midcentury masterpieces to affordable cabins in the woods. But one style we don’t see as often is the brutalist home. Sure, maybe raw concrete doesn’t always elicit the same sort of cozy feeling as a farmhouse, but it can make for some gorgeous architecture.
Take this four-bedroom, two-bath home in the Texas Hill Country, about 90 minutes from San Antonio. At 3,700 square feet, the one-story house is built into the side of a hill, sits on 42 acres, and is massive in scope and scale.
Large 7.5-foot double-paned windows and 13-foot high ceilings complement the geometrical concrete and provide panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Designed to be energy efficient, the L-shaped house boasts an open living area, a large master suite, and a bonus room that could be used for storage or a wine cellar. An 800-square-foot three car garage rounds out the amenities.
The house has been on the market since 2017 and listing agent Jonathan Berry believes the raw interiors provide an opportunity for someone who wants to “put their own touch on the home.”
If you’re a brutalism fan—we know you’re out there—7126 East Ranch Road is on the market now for $849,000.
