One block from the renowned UT Golf Course and Clubhouse, this perfectly situated stone and stucco home nestles quietly on a cul-de-sac backing up to the 14th tee, with its private environs surprisingly close to the action. Walk to Sunday Brunch, dinner or drinks in the Founders Bar and come home, close the door and feel like it is miles from anywhere. Open this beautiful haven to friends and family for the perfect entertaining sphere where guests can spill from the spacious interior to a backyard oasis with one of the most picturesque pools in Austin. Built originally as a model home, it's hard to wish for a feature that isn't here. The dramatic centerpiece inside is the sweeping scrolled iron stairway rising between the entry and the two story living area. Two tiers of windows curve as a wall of glass looking out onto the incredible back patio, pool and yard, facing east which brings morning light and protection from the sun in the evenings..a perfect Texas hill country setting. The covered patio is ready for year round use, with a mister system for warmer days and a fireplace and roll down clear awnings for our treasured, lovely winter nights. The music system that runs throughout the house provides background melodies for al fresco dinners, swimming and relaxation. Indoors, the core for cooking and entertaining is a fully appointed kitchen with spreading granite-clad work spaces and professional quality appliances including a stainless six-burner gas stove and suspended vent hood built into a stone alcove. Double ovens and warming drawer are encased in rich stained cabinetry custom built to include pull-out shelving throughout, wine glass storage, a massive island with 12 drawers and a huge pantry..the perfect venue for culinary ventures. Also on the main floor, a guest room and bath, the study and a large laundry area accompany the lovely high-ceiling master with views to the perfectly manicured and private back yard. Escape from frantic days with a long, luxurious soak in the deep corner tub or let stress wash away in the large mosaic tile and glass shower under a bronze rainwater showerhead. A second living area or game room upstairs is equipped with a wet bar and wine refrigerator and is flanked by three bedrooms with accompanying baths. The magic happens a couple of steps down into a fantastic media room with a 1080P 3-D projector and a 7.1 surround sound system. Thirty discretely placed solar panels prove this home to be smart as well as gorgeous. The pool equipment, garage doors, solar electric system, irrigation system and selected lights can be accessed from a smart phone via apps. This incredible home begs to be shared with friends and family. Guests will leave talking about the beauty of the gardens and pool. What these surroundings offer reads like a wish list: The plush backyard resort, the convenience of golf, tennis, dining and the social center at the Clubhouse a block away and the blissful marriage of design, comfort and technology within the walls of an elegant and spacious backdrop for a full hill country life.
