30th Annual Hill Country Home Tour

Thank you to everyone who made this year's home tour a huge success!



Cozy Cottage for an Empty Nester
"La Vista"


After a successful career in Houston, the owner made good on her plan to build a home from scratch on a wooded, creek-side lot next door to her sister in Woodcreek. La Vista, or "The View" is a true sanctuary for the owner, Suzanne Gordon, who started planning for the perfect retirement and saving special treasures several years ago.

Suzanne says, "I always had this home in mind. Each time I moved or redecorated, I would set aside special keepsakes and furniture pieces." Handmade family quilts, personal childhood photos, and unique antique finds are artfully arranged throughout her home. She said she wanted it to be uncluttered and comfortable and that feeling is clearly the result.

The entire house is just under 1800 square feet and includes three bedrooms and 2 baths. The two guest bedrooms and full guest bath are easily closed off for the owner's daughter and family to have privacy during their visits. One of the secondary bedrooms opens to the back porch. On the opposite side of the great room is the master, which also opens to the back porch.

The main living/dining space boasts high ceilings and a wall of glass doors to the back porch that creates an airy feel. The television is hidden behind clever barn doors, made from shutters. The oval dining table was purchased at Round Top Antique Fair and is complemented with chairs purchased unfinished online and finished beautifully by Suzanne. The master bedroom is clearly the owner's retreat, decorated in neutral fabrics it includes a spacious walk in closet and private bathroom.

Gordon's love of gardening starts at the front walkway, which is lined with native Hill Country plants and succulents that are thriving under her care. Stepping into the front door, sight lines go straight through to the back porch, which is a popular, almost-daily hang-out spot for friends and family. With its comfortable seating, and accents including a real captain's chest now used as a coffee table, "the view" sets the stage for relaxing.

"La Vista" is one of five homes featured on the 2017 Wimberley Home Tour, November 10 and 11 that showcase the hill country lifestyle. Tickets for the tour are $20 and may be purchased on line at www.wimberleyccc.org which accepts Discover, MasterCard and Visa credit and debit cards.
