World-Class Architecture Exalts Panoramic City Views
On par with world-class homes in the most chic cities, this spectacular modern residence is the embodiment of the new Austin. Capitalizing on a view worth millions, the home is sited at the top of West Lake Hills overlooking a verdant canyon, framing panoramic vistas of the evolving Austin skyline from the Capitol to downtown. Designed to provide unimpeded sight lines from the street to the horizon, gentle curves of long-form brick guide the eye through an open breezeway and courtyard to the glittering downtown skyline. A river of green flows from the entry to the canyon, punctuated by the pool cantilevered above the valley. The home’s three levels cascade down the hillside and provide striking views from every room. DRAMATIC, SOPHISTICATED ENTERTAINING Designed for entertaining, the home combines ultra-luxury amenities and materials on every level. The second-floor courtyard is an entertainer’s dream anchored by a vanishing-edge pool, spa, an outdoor lounge surrounding a gas-fueled fire pit; three guest bedroom suites with a dedicated private kitchen and outdoor grill provide guests with their own amenities. The first floor offers both a spacious billiards game room and lounge for sporting events complemented by a cocktail bar and screening room for more casual gatherings or movie night. From the courtyard, guests ascend a custom stone and plaster staircase lined with walnut paneling to be greeted by an arresting panorama through floor-to-ceiling windows. The living/dining area opens to a trellis-covered viewing deck and outdoor living space where guests can marvel at the view and enjoy the breeze. The gourmet kitchen offers top-of-the-line appliances and is complemented by a temperature-controlled wine room.
