Bonnell Drive Traditional

Gracious Estate Home on Mount Bonnell 
Grand, gracious estate home on Mount Bonnell.  With a nod to traditional manor homes, the classic brick exterior is accented with multi-paned windows allowing natural light to pour into the home for a welcoming, refined first impression.  Located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Austin, this close-in central location is minutes from Westwood Country Club, The Contemporary -Laguna Gloria Art Museum and Mayfield Park with access to the iconic Covert Park/Mount Bonnell overlooking Lake Austin through the backyard gate. Downtown city views are prominent from the second floor and rooftop viewing decks.  Set on a hillside and surrounded by lush trees, the property feels private and serene.  

Timeless, With Modern Flair 
Completely remodeled in 2014, the interior retains all its original charm with a touch of modern flair.  A grand entry hall sweeps up the stairs to a circular overlook and gallery for an impressive entry.  Graceful, detailed millwork and burnished oak floors are accented with rich grasscloth wallcoverings and fresh, contemporary paint colors creating a timeless aesthetic. The fireplace-anchored formal living room – which is also a media room with hidden screen – and stunning dining room offer the opportunity for elegant entertaining.  The large gourmet kitchen provides plenty of space to cook and is adjacent to a large, sunny breakfast room for informal meals.  French doors open out to the leuders stone and brick patio nestled in to the hillside where you can enjoy an alfresco meal grilled up in the outdoor kitchen or play on the sport court behind it.  The main floor also enjoys a beautifully outfitted study with a fireplace, and a light-filled gym that opens to a patio and relaxing spa.

Elegant Retreat with City Views 
Ascend the staircase to the second-floor gallery and you will be delighted to find a cozy sitting room at the top with a window that overlooks the verdant valley below.  This floor hosts the elegant primary suite which enjoys a spectacular view of downtown through windows framing a fireplace.  The bath features an oversized double steam shower and soaking tub and is outfitted with marble floors and countertops.  A second full bedroom suite plus two additional bedrooms all share access to a third floor skylit media/game room with a fifth bedroom that offers another place to entertain and relax, or climb the spiral staircase to the breathtaking city view deck.  All three floors are served by an elevator for convenience.
