Property Details

Live the pastoral equestrian lifestyle within the city limits in this luxurious Hill Country estate farmhouse.  Designed by award-winning Design Visions of Austin and built by John Siemering Homes, the home is crafted of native limestone and red cedar, paying homage to traditional Texas ranch homes.  Stepping inside the great room you will be struck with the volume of the space; soaring ceilings are anchored by cedar trusses and emphasized by a floor-to-ceiling limestone fireplace.  Gleaming gold- and silver-leaf chandeliers add an elegant counterpoint to the organic elements of wood and stone.  The showplace kitchen centers around a luxury La Canche range and features an oversized granite island that is both a cook’s and entertainer’s dream.  The great room opens out to the covered patio to allow for guests to flow from inside to the covered terrace, pool, and lawn beyond.  

Multiple Options to Entertain and Relax 

A large game room also opens to the patio and features a wet bar for convenient refreshments.  This space accesses the second level which hosts three en-suite bedrooms and another game room; the entire wing can be closed off allowing kids their own space to play, host friends and relax.  Secluded on the other side of the house, the luxurious main-floor primary suite opens out to the screen porch where you can enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or nightcap enjoying a cool breeze.  A sumptuous bath includes a curved, oversized shower and soaking tub with a view.  Adjacent, a spacious office offers a peaceful place to work or can be used as a gym or playroom.   

Rural Serenity with Nearby Amenities

While just minutes from area amenities, shopping, and restaurants, you will feel miles from the city on almost four oak-dotted acres.  Equestrians will appreciate being walking distance to ATX Equine stables and everyone will enjoy the amenities at the nearby Polo Tennis Club.  On the other hand, you may never want to leave your property with over 1400 square feet of outdoor living to enjoy.  The beautiful stone terrace features an outdoor kitchen where you can BBQ for all your friends and family as they splash in the resort-worthy pool or play on the enclosed sport court. A breezy screened porch with a two-sided fireplace provides another cozy spot to sip a cocktail and enjoy the country air.  This is the ultimate in country living with all the conveniences nearby.
