Every room in this home is crafted with imagination and high-quality finishes. Every room. The finishes are exhibited in intricate tile recesses and the mind bending imagination is revealed when long, glass walls of the family room disappear to make the room transform into a part of the outdoors. The view beyond that opening stretches peacefully out over the pool, through the hills and out to the sparkle of Lake Austin. The private backyard and the green expanse of the majestic view demand that the architecture take advantage of the magic there. The creative use of glass figures prominently in the home's design. Two story walls of windows in the living room are dramatic. Curved glass windows that echo the round breakfast area are playfully beautiful and the two glass walls in the family room that can be rolled back is astonishing. In the dramatic entry, huge iron and glass doors with a massive arched transom open to a two-story space flanked by Cantera columns and a stone stairway with scrolled iron railing that twists gracefully to the upper floor. Matching scrolled ironwork railings overlook the two story living where recesses outfitted with cove lighting allow for dramatic presentation of artwork. Stone flooring meanders into the dining, with a dropped ceiling detail that mirrors the shape of the room and provides framework for the chandelier light. The heart of the kitchen is a commercial Thermador stove with double ovens and 6 gas burners. This gorgeous workhorse is the center of a cook's dream space beautifully outfitted with herringbone stone backsplash, richly stained alder cabinets and thick granite counters. A welcoming wet bar with beautiful cabinetry and a wine refrigerator is an excellent stop between these wonderful spaces or on the way to huge patios, covered verandas and the enviable view that is worthy of a deep breath and a sip while your blood pressure falls after a day at the office. Scrollwork iron matching the inside stair rails borders the patio out to the lovely pool and level lawn that ends in a spectacular view. Mirrors hang floating in front of large windows in the master bath providing excellent light and striking originality of design. A jetted oval tub under large windows, a generous shower recess with intricate tiled designs, and the luxury of body sprayers complete this spa bath. The walk-in closet is filled with furniture quality built-ins and great, well thought out storage. Bedrooms upstairs have access to beautiful baths and balconies with higher, even better views of the gentle slopes of the Hill Country and Lake. There is no corner of this home that is not designed and finished with beautiful detail and luxurious feel. And don't forget the magic and whimsy of a family room that can be indoors surrounded by glass or an open part of the breathtaking landscape and view. This is a special place, uniquely designed to be both comfortable and impressive. Beautiful.
