Jessica & Paul purchased this estate in 2010
Why Jessica & Paul chose Austin
It all started with an amazing piece of land -- a 1+ acre flat lot in the heart of Austin, TX. Working with prominent New York architects, we designed a comfortable modern house that is tranquil during the day and perfect for entertaining in the evenings. There is a big yard for kids to play and a infinity-edge salt water pool. We love eating outside most of the year on the covered patio or pool-side dining table. The house is amazingly peaceful and private -- even with large groups.
What makes this estate unique
While many people think of Texas as flat, the dramatic Texas Hill Country begins just West of downtown. We built our house in these first heavily wooded limestone hills, nearly 500 feet above downtown and only minutes from the center of the action. The hills and towering oak trees provide a dramatic natural backdrop for glass-filled modern house. We designed the house and pool around the trees and natural environment, making it a perfect place for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Everything was wonderful! You have a beautiful home and the neighborhood was a retreat from the craziness of SXSW.
We especially enjoyed the music system and the living area. I got stuck among the bookshelves more than once, a nice collection. It was fun to see the deer that hang out in the cool trees (oak maybe). The concierge service you recommended was great as well, she did a nice job stocking our fridge so we didn't have to think about it. Thank you!
