‘Tis a gift to be simple, ’tis a gift to be free, ’tis a gift to come down where we ought to be. And when we find ourselves in the place just right, ’twill be in the valley of love and delight — Joseph Brackett
If the old Shaker hymn, Simple Gifts, was translated into a building, it would look like the Auberty Ranch house. Designed by Dallas-based architect Joshua Nimmo, the simple materials and simple form of this home reflects vernacular ranch buildings of yesterday, yet the structure is thoroughly modern and refined in its styling. Auberty Ranch is located in Glen Rose, Texas.
