An exquisite embodiment of the Austin lifestyle, this modern, light-filled home is designed by acclaimed Texas architects Alterstudio to reflect the combination of sophistication and natural beauty that defines the city. Perched on a hillside enclave above Shoal Creek, the home enjoys striking downtown views from both the main level and the oversized upstairs patio. Lush green trees bracket the vista, providing a treetop ambiance in every room. The ultra-convenient location allows you to walk to Pease Park and Shoal Creek - even stroll downtown if you're so inclined - all of the excitement of Austin is within a few...
minutes. The interior is designed with signature Alterstudio elements, including sleek integrated baseboards and disappearing pocket doors that provide a clean, minimal counterpoint to the verdant views. Museum-white walls reflect light that flows in through floor-to-ceiling windows, burnishing the bleached wood floors and artistic walnut built-in cabinetry. A gourmet walnut kitchen opens to a family room with a view out over the terraced back hillside, thoughtfully landscaped with a mix of contemporary steel planters and native-stone walls set off with native plantings. Encompassing the entire upper floor, the primary suite opens through a wall of glass to the treetop deck. Imagine enjoying your morning coffee alfresco, watching the city wake up while the birds chirp in the surrounding trees. In the sleek bath, an oversized shower enclosure contains a tub with a view. Built-in cabinetry and a walk-in closet offer plenty of storage. On the main floor are two sunny bedrooms plus a spacious office with built-in desk and bookshelves, a private door leads outside to the patio and garden. Enjoy intimate entertaining with guests marveling at the view from the living room. Outside, you'll enjoy a well-thought-out landscape that includes a cozy fire place. This home allows you to enjoy the best of the Austin lifestyle from your treetop perch.
