 The homes. . .

Romano

The 
ROMANO HOME


(Shown at top of page)

Built on magnificent property along the Blanco River this striking contemporary home was completed in 1988. Stone craftsmen from Mexico artfully integrated the patios, steps and walkways with the natural rocks found on the building site. Many interesting pieces and antique furnishings are found throughout. Wonderful woodwork and attention to detail is found in each room. One wing of the home is a suite for Laura Romano, the owner's daughter. A sky blue ceiling, circular window and glorious views make this private space truly unique. The  Romano home is a wonderful example of the architectural diversity found in Wimberley.

Gum 

The 
GUM HOME

Welcome to "Casa Chicle", the delightful home of Greta and Lionel Gum who are eighth generation Texans. When the Gums first saw the oak tree on their property they knew they had found the perfect place to build their "dream home." Working from their initial drawing of the house which surrounds the tree, their son, an architect, designed the ideal space to accommodate their "Early Attic" and "collected junque" furnishings. Each room in the house faces the courtyard and their splendid tree. The gate, the Spanish tiles and the countless other details make this home truly unique.

this historic Wimberley landmark.

Decorated in country Christmas style, the historic Winters-Wimberley  House served as the "headquarters" of the Home Tour.

Built in 1856 the house was purchased in 1997 by the Wimberley Institute of Cultures, who is working to refurbish the home for community use and has been responsible for its designation as a Historic Landmark.

Klepfer

The
KLEPFER HOME

Inviting and serene, Rose and Tom Klepfers' three year old home was designed by a son-in-law to accommodate their collection of furnishings. Using the western, Santa Fe style pieces and colors she so loves, Rose decorated her home with an eye for detail and comfort. Along one wall of their utility wall is a gallery of photographs taken by Rose, one of each of their seventeen grandchildren! Whimsical swings hang from trees scattered throughout the property. A  delightful porch wraps around the back and side of their home which enables them to further enjoy their casual, easy going lifestyle.

 Collins-Leverette

The
COLLINS-LEVERETTE HOME

Situated in a lovely wooded area overlooking Lone Man Creek, the Collins-Leverette home reflects the family's lifestyle as well as their desire to "bring the outside in." Comprised of three buildings, the home allows separate spaces for visiting children and quests, private quarters for owners and a central living/dining area. A glass ceiling in the round bathroom offers morning light and evening stars. Wide windows placed low to the floor and an expansive deck of rock and wood provide a full view of this picturesque spot. Hill country stone from the property was used for the exterior walls and interior accents.
