Central Air Conditioning.
It’s hard to believe when sitting in the bookshelf-lined den looking through casement windows out to a beautiful pool and a forest of oak trees that City Central is ten minutes away. This tranquil Westlake haven is covered with over a hundred trees and offers a peaceful setting that serves as an escape from the action while allowing quick access to the energy of downtown when desired. Shops and conveniences along Bee Cave Road are just around the corner, so this slice of heaven is the best of all worlds.
The entry opens into a living room centered around a stone, wood-burning fireplace that rises to the ceiling. Two sets of french doors look out, as do most rooms, to the shaded back yard with a large pool and its surrounding deck. The yard in back is artfully designed by nature, covered with spreading oaks and requires little maintenance. The natural organic setting is the magic of this property and makes coming home a delight.
A very efficient kitchen is equipped with pull-out drawers in the cabinets, KitchenAid appliances and Silestone counters. Looking out across the bar and breakfast room the view can be enjoyed while assembling meals. Attached to the kitchen is a huge, fantastic pantry lined with shelves and space for all the staples, appliance and serving dishes in the culinary arsenal.
A couple of steps down a dining area that will seat a large assembly of family and friends opens into a family room lined with 200 linear feet of custom bookshelves on one side and a wall of windows on the other. So between the comfort of beloved, collected volumes and the glass walls looking out to a cloister of trees established long ago, the large space which, with a wet bar, can be where the teenagers gather or a place for repose and escape. It’s beautiful.
Three good-sized bedrooms on the ground level open to a balcony from one and a covered patio and wooded garden area from the other. A spacious master upstairs feels like a treehouse looking out from a balcony over the pool and surrounding oaks. Double vanities, oval tub and separate glass shower accompany this great room.
To be so close to the center of Downtown Austin and yet sequestered away in wooded, enchanting surroundings is the allure of a perfect old Westlake setting. This friendly neighborhood is organic, beautiful and inviting. Natural beauty abounds in this woodland setting… and yet it’s a stone’s throw from urban delights of one of the nation’s most exciting cities. This is what location means.
