Elers House


Houston, Texas

Three wings joined by a 10 ft. wide gallery organize this 8000SF residence situated on a heavily wooded lot. The approach from the drive on the west reaveals the formality of the public facade behind a forest of pines, while the courtyard to the east is more informal. Mexican brick, stucco, saltillo tile and rough pine beams give this traditionally detailed home a sense of place in the south Texas landscape.
