Contemporary treehouse in bucolic Balcones Park. This striking home is designed to take advantage of the lush surrounding hillsides through the huge windows in every room. Nestled in to a hillside, the lower floor opens out on to a greenery front and back, while the second floor provides a view of downtown and Lake Austin.While secluded and private, the property is just 15 minutes from downtown and two from Covert Park and the lake with the added bonus of being the ASID school district.
The interior is sunny and sleek, with a soaring vaulted ceiling in the main living room framing the steel patio doors. Rich walnut floors and handcrafted iron railings contrast with clean white walls and add depth to the space. The open kitchen features the same rich wood cabinetry set off by chef’s stainless appliances and a hand-poured concrete countertop. The second-floor master bedroom is a soothing place to begin and end the day with treetop views and a spa-like master bath. An adjacent sitting room/game room opens up to a barrel-vaulted covered terrace with downtown views.
The outdoor living amenities mean you’ll be spending many peaceful evenings on the large IPE deck overlooking the woods or cooking on the built-in Argentinian-style grill. Enjoy dinner gathered around the teak table surrounded by the lushly-planted landscape. A nearby playscape will entertain the kids while the adults enjoy a nightcap.
