Property Description

Relish the sublime views of the Texas Hill Country & downtown Austin, only 10 minutes away, from this contemporary masterpiece set high above the hills of Austin. In 2018, the one-of-a kind property was lovingly redesigned, taken down to the studs, & brought back to life in a dramatic and meticulous fashion by RARE Homes, an internationally awarded boutique design, remodel, media, technology and security company. Occasionally presented as a demo home to select audiences, no detail was overlooked throughout the rebuild process including state-of-the-art home automation, security & audio/visual features throughout. The epitome of indoor/outdoor living, the home can easily & simultaneously welcome hundreds of guests for an energetic poolside or entertainment level event or a handful of your closest friends for an intimate gathering in the auto lounge or wine lounge, both with wet bars. Car enthusiasts will love the secure motor court and 4 to 8-car garage. The very flexible floorplan can easily convert from 4BDRMs up to 7BDRMs with additional baths, all completed within weeks by the seller if desired. Property lies in the county providing more flexibility & ease for efficient project completion. Most rooms have exterior access to one of many patios or balconies including a spacious guest apartment with separate access, kitchenette and washer/dryer. From dawn to dusk, the home radiates various moods depending on the bespoke setting you want to create for you and your guests. Gated for absolute security, enjoy solitude and serenity via a private pool courtyard, multiple outdoor living areas, a sport court that can double as a dining area for events, a rooftop patio that can serve as another lounge or play area, and a side yard that could accommodate a putting green, pickle ball court or playground.
