Prosper Farm House 5 PHOTOS

The forms and materials of the Prosper Farm echo the traditions of Texas farm and ranch architecture: low pitched roofs over simple rectangular forms, clad in galvanized corrugated sheet metal and Oklahoma sandstone. The house consists of a long bar sheltered by porches that run the full length of the house on the north and south. Joining the house to the two story garage is a low connector that serves as secondary entry and mud room. The main living space is a tall vaulted great room that houses the kitchen and living area. Side aisles along the great room contain the dining area on the north and a full size shuffle board table on the south. The side aisles are lined with windows that open the great room to views stretching to the horizon on all sides.
