Southern Estate in Westlake $4,500,000
This Southern home offers luxury estate living just 7 miles from downtown Austin. Refined interiors, panoramic views, and resort-inspired outdoor amenities are just a few highlights that make this property special. Set high atop Bull Mountain in Westlake, the home features sweeping views from both the main level and upstairs verandas that wrap around and extend the length of the home. The homesite was once owned by Texas legend Frank Erwin, which he handpicked to build his political palace before he passed away.
As you approach the entrance you are greeted by a double staircase that leads to the main level veranda. The entryway opens to an elegant formal living room with a cozy fireplace and connects to a secondary living area through a galley wet bar. The open living area connects the informal dining and gourmet kitchen that features a 6-burner Thermador range with a double oven, two dishwashers, and a large marble center island perfect for gatherings of any size. Inside the kitchen there is a swinging door that leads to the formal dining room with double crown molding, opening to the main level hallway. There are several doors that open to the veranda, seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor living.
The grand upstairs Primary suite spans the entire length of the home and opens to a private veranda with sweeping western views. Recently remodeled, the primary bathroom features a free-standing bathtub, walk-in shower, double vanity, and large windows that fill the room with natural light. There are 3 additional bedrooms upstairs, one full bathroom and one ensuite bathroom.
Downstairs you enter a bonus living area with a full bathroom and built-in bed nook that can function as a fifth guest bedroom as needed. The sliding glass doors open to a resort-like pool & spa with a sun shelf, swim-up seating, fountains, and Ann Sacks tiles. The pool is lined with magnolia trees to create your own private oasis. Multiple outdoor living areas allow for endless possibilities for gatherings or quiet evenings with water features, fountains, and an elevated pergola overlooking the pool. The upper-level side yard was once home to an organic garden that can be revived or covered to create additional yard space. No detail was overlooked in an extensive outdoor remodel in 2014 by Bill Bauer of the Garden Design Group.
