Elegance and Quality of Construction in Westlake
Serenely located on one of most desirable streets in Westlake, this 6BR/5.5BA, 7871sqft home is a stunning example of comfortable elegance melded with impeccable quality of construction
Respected California designer/builder, Robert Owen, cut no corners when he built this home to be his personal Austin retreat. Smooth columns rise up from rich travertine and solid oak floors to stand elegantly in the foreground of gorgeous wood-framed arched windows. Custom-finished walls are graced with designer sconces and interesting alcoves; and the imaginative mixture of tray, open beam and coffered ceilings are dramatically illuminated by indirect lighting.
Living spaces are bright, spacious and well-conceived. The inviting den features custom cabinetry and a handsome limestone fireplace, while another stone fireplace warms the formal living room. Adjoined in a spacious open floor plan are the island kitchen, sun-filled breakfast area and the casual family room. The efficient chef’s kitchen features pristine white cabinets, plentiful granite-topped prep space, dual ovens, two sinks, a gas cook-top and Sub Zero refrigeration. Secluded and private, the luxurious downstairs master suite boasts a large bedchamber with a quiet sitting room tucked in an embrace of wood-framed windows. The suite’s immense master bath features abundant built-in drawer stacks, marble tops on his and her vanities, a bidet, and two roomy walk-in closets. A guest bedroom is also situated on the first level along with another bedroom with its own private entrance that’s located near the kitchen; making it the perfect maid’s quarters. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms, a bonus room and an enormous bonus attic space that’s structurally approved for improvement which, once finished out, could be the ultimate game room.
Quickly accessed from a number of rooms is a wide covered patio that provides plenty of space for tranquil outdoor living and al fresco dining. Within its view lie mature lawns, hedges and trees, stately columns and a limestone deck that surrounds a swimming pool fed by a waterfall that cascades from an elevated hot tub.
Stylish, with a hint of California, this home is perfect for the family who loves to play and entertain. Craftsmanship is first-class and the locale could not be more appealing. Other highlights include a beautiful cherrywood library/office, formal dining, wet bar, butler’s pantry, plantation shutters, over-sized crown molding, custom chandeliers, and over 1002sqft of garage space. All of this is super-conveniently close to world-class golf, restaurants, shopping, Lake Austin and inside the radius of the coveted Eanes School District.
