The 22nd Annual Wimberley Community Civic Club Home Tour:
Country Meets Elegance in Custom Home Builder's Home

Sponsored by the Wimberley Community Civic Club, the 2009 Hill Country Homes Tour for the Holidays was Friday & Saturday, November 20th and 21st from 10 AM to 5 PM. Six unique homes were featured.

Country Meets Elegance in Custom Home Builder's Home

Tucked back in the trees Mike and Jan Jones created a home that Jan wanted to fit into the hill country setting. The home's front porch gives the home the rustic feel with the wood and cedar trim. As you step into the home you notice the elegant touches and rich colors of the home. A summer visit to Wimberley 16 years ago was all it took for the Joneses to fall in love with Wimberley and the property they now call home.

This custom home is built in a V-shape with the common areas forming the middle, and guest quarters and hobby room forming one leg of the V, and the master suite forming the other. On the way to the master bedroom you will find a unique and convenient "pocket office" tucked into the hallway. Jan wanted plants, but did not want to fight the deer and she has creatively created a spot in the home that allows her to enjoy her green thumb. The elegant octagon-shaped dining room opens to the common area in the middle of the home off the kitchen. The kitchen, designed for two cooks, is a perfect arrangement for entertaining guest. Mike and Jan are often in the kitchen together creating a meal. Windows feature artwork and cell shades that lower from the top and rise from the bottom, bringing the outdoors in and creating an open, light and airy feel. Much of the artwork in the home is by local artists. The stained glass piece displayed in the hallway window is by Jack Roseman, Canyon Lake artist, given as gift to the Joneses and made for that window.
