While there are some decisions you can tackle on your own, expert advice — such as renowned local design studio M Gooden Design — is always welcome.

I don’t know much about Italy, Texas. I mean, I’ve eaten at the Dairy Queen right off the interstate, and I’ve been somewhat intrigued by the nearby dome structures, but not enough for a lengthy pause during road trips to Austin and back. That’s why I was so surprised to see the gorgeous photos of this Italy ranch listed by Dana Rigg and Bonnie Pautler. I could go on and on about what an astounding property this is, but our friends at Second Shelters did the heavy lifting when they named this their Ranch of the Week.
