The buildings at SK Ranch sit on a broad, curving mesa in the Texas Hill Country. Taking full advantage of the site’s strengths for solar orientation, prevailing breezes, topography and distant vistas, the compound serves as a modern ranch with clean, crisp lines, sophisticated finishes and a casual elegance. Structures include the main house, guesthouse and wine cellar, pool pavilion and tennis court. Situated along the ridge, each unique building site serves as a destination point, giving each a sense of prominence within the complex.
