In the Middle of Everything
Stunning contemporary one street off Barton Springs Road; close enough to Barton Springs Pool to walk for a swim and then stop at Chuys for lunch on the way back. Truly in the center of Austin, other walkable destinations include the Long Center, Zilker Park, Zach Scott Theater and some of Austin’s most iconic restaurants. Sited on .3 of an acre, the gated property feels surprisingly private given the convenience of the location, with a deep layer of large heritage oak trees framing an Austin skyline view from the top two levels of the house. Multiple open and shaded decks overlook a pool that seems to hang on the hillside.
A Work of Art
The home itself is a masterpiece centered around a three-story steel-and-cable floating staircase. Unique materials make the space a work of art; bleached-wood-paneled ceilings and pecan-wood floors give the main living area a warmth that complements the breathtaking view. The spectacular kitchen juxtaposes sleek European-style cabinetry with Siematic horizontal-grain mahogany and stainless-steel appliances. Additional artisan elements throughout the house include herringbone-marble and glass-mosaic tile, sleek fixtures and perfectly-selected designer lighting which sparkle to each space.
The three-story floorplan provides a space for everything. The main level hosts the living room, dining room and kitchen, all with floor-to-ceiling views of the city. Also with spectacular views, the master suite includes a large bedroom with sitting room opening to a deck perfect for morning coffee, plus his-and-hers walk-in closets and a study with built-in desk and storage. Accessible by either stairs or an elevator, the lower level accommodates a large game room, two bedrooms and laundry/utility and a caterer’s kitchen with appliances and storage. The fourth and fifth bedroom are on the top floor, each with access to a private deck overlooking a bird park. Additional features include a three-car garage with electric car charger, 27 solar panels and 10,000-gallon rain water-retention tank. Adjoining lot available but not included in list price.
