The boxy design of this house for sale near U.S. Highway 281 and Thousand Oaks Drive served as a blank canvas, inside and out, for its sellers' eclectic hodgepodge of dramatic flourishes.

Set among more than half and acre of Live Oak trees, the three-bedroom home was the brainchild of two architects with connections to the art world and high-end residential and commercial projects.

The maple plank flooring on the second floor was salvaged from the gymnasium of the old Boerne High School. Glazed terra cotta tiles from the fa├žade of the former Texas Theater on Houston Street grace the walls of the studio room and the backyard wall. Steel used in designs in the home's studio came from an early 1900s school building.

And as if that wasn't enough, the exterior doors on the $520,000 property came from artisans in Guanajuato, Mexico. Interior doors, walls of earthy reds and oranges, green stairs and numerous other interior architecture notes give the home the feel of a modern hacienda.

This home is listed Tamara Ordaz with Weichert, Realtors-Select.
