This house is famous for all the RIGHT reasons. Renowned architect Heather McKinney created this award-winning, environmentally-conscious “treehouse castle” surrounded by a grove of mature trees. Foliage and nature-inspired, low-maintenance landscaping offer so much privacy that you’d never know you’re perfectly centered in the most walkable zone of West Austin: within a half-mile walk you’ll find schools, groceries, restaurants, upscale shopping, and more (see attached).The city’s newest H-E-B grocery/BBQ/bar is a five minute drive; downtown less than ten.
The modern design pairs architectural distinction with comfort. A high-ceilinged, open plan pairs soaring main spaces and more intimate rooms. Bask in natural light all day long through large windows and a glass-wrapped open staircase. Invite breezes into an airy living room through a foldable glass wall opening to a double-height screen porch with limestone fireplace. Reinforced gallery art walls showcase collections, art, or tech. Entertain in style in a party-perfect gourmet kitchen with plentiful workspace, copious storage, and a stunning formal dining room/library. Retreat into the romantic primary suite with glass reading nook, balcony, and spa-inspired bath. Treat yourself every day with extras like a yoga nook, a flex space perfect for play or home gym, a craft room, and a private home office lined floor to ceiling with bookshelves.
Not only beautiful, the house is also green and practical. Solar panels produce a sizable percentage of its energy, Easy-care HardiePlank, sustainably-sourced hardwoods, and low-VOC paints and glues were used throughout. A dumbwaiter makes transporting groceries easy. An oversized 3-car garage with workshop space & expansive storage room, plus 4 paved parking spots for guests.
Elegant as an entertaining venue, yet immensely livable as a family home. This is the first time, and probably last time, that this home will be available for a generation.
