Mid-century modern Pemberton home, published in Architectural Digest 1968 with award-winning architecture by renowned R. Gommel Roessner. The residence, quietly enveloped in beautiful tree foliage, combines rich redwood, tinted glass, handmade brick and copper material to blend with its natural setting. Roessner’s prized talent best illustrated in this property, was his ability to create spaces that preserved privacy while maintaining an openness in plan. Roessner, recognized by the Texas Society of Architects for excellence in design, received a Merit Award from the AIA for his work at 7 Green Lanes. Three living, three fireplaces, two dining, two wet bars, a fully-equipped kitchen, intercom system and huge second floor game room are accessible by stairways on either end of the home. The intimate foyer draws into a dramatic living with its 18-foot ceiling, two-story windows and brick fireplace. Each room flows nicely onto one or more balconies, terraces or gardens as part of their own outdoor living space. In the breakfast, one will find a second high-ceiling assembly space with courtyard exposure through two-story glass. In 2010-2011, this wall was replaced with new steel and tempered glass. Bubbling water features, garden sculptures, a children’s playground and palms set the stage for its extraordinary setting within the closure of a garden wall. The kitchen features two islands, new sink features, a compactor, gas stove, oven, two refrigerators and walk-in pantry. Access to the two-car garage, more storage and a large utility room with washer and dryer complete the main level. From private balconies on one side to tall windows on the other, each large bedroom offers scenic views from every angle. A double-sided vanity, three closets, newer doors and toilet, and a walk-in shower complete the re-tiled master bath. More updates include several new windows, including new thermal windows on the South wall, TPO roofing, cable and surround sound wiring. New outdoor lighting and a full-yard sprinkler system replaced in 2012 with well water supplied irrigation.
