Even in the country’s most highly sought-after real estate market, there exists a tier unto itself—a level reserved only for those very few houses in which luxury is the default setting. This cul-de-sac property, rising up along the Colorado River on arguably the single most desirable street in all of Austin, can make that claim. The 8,000-square foot oasis provides every manner of elegant exclusivity, from a private boat slip and professionally designed landscaping to multiple garages and a gated motor court. The resort-style pool includes a hot tub and tranquil water flow features, and the views of Lake Austin and the surrounding hills are second to none. This spectacular property is nestled against an east-facing cove where the wind and water are calm, and it stays shielded from the afternoon sun. Protected from the noise and bustle of the lake, the cove’s peaceful waters are ideal for paddle-boarding and kayaking. The home itself is sumptuous and sophisticated, while also providing practicality and comfort. The downstairs living area boasts a grand fireplace, vaulted ceilings, and custom built-in shelving. The chef’s kitchen offers commercial-grade appliances, double islands, double sinks, and a water pot filling feature. Along with its striking mesquite-topped island and custom backsplash, the kitchen also features a booth and table for casual dining. The primary suite features a vaulted ceiling with beautiful exposed beams, abundant natural light, and incredible views of the lake cove and the hillside. In addition to the pool, the outdoor living area contains an outdoor kitchen w/ multiple spaces from which to entertain & lounge. There is a full bath and shower stall adjacent from the pool & a guest casita w/its own patio & balcony overlooking the water. Offering an exclusive level of lakeside living that is far from typical and located in a prime location only six miles from downtown Austin & the University of Texas campus, this home has redefined perfection.
