A truly rare opportunity to own this unique, custom-built home with unparalleled views across the Balcones Canyon Land Preserve. The current owners have had the property since 1996 and in recent years have updated and improved every feature of this exceptional home. Having four bedrooms, with the option for a fifth, including two primary suites, three large living rooms and four full bathrooms, the interior is sure to suit all needs. What makes the property very special is the huge basement, split into a large workshop area and extensive storage space, which maintains a moderate temperature year round. Recent improvements are many - please see the attached list in Documents. There are two decks at the back of the house overlooking the fabulous view across the hill country. The upstairs deck is screened to provide a comfortable space to share family meals or evening drinks with friends as the sun sets over the canyon. The owners have carefully taken into account the cost of energy going forward, as well as their concerns about the climate. The inside of the metal roof has been effectively insulated with expanding foam insulation, cooling the house and protecting the HVAC equipment. Most recently, in 2022, the owners installed Tesla solar roof panels and two Power Walls (owned). Since then, electricity bills have been typically less than $100 per month and on many days the home generates all of it’s needed electricity. Please see the last twelve months power bills in Documents. In addition to a generous 2-car garage, with yet more storage and a utility sink, the home has a 2-space carport at the bottom of the driveway. A rainwater harvesting system gathers water from the roof of the carport into two large barrels and this is used to water the terraced hillside immediately below the pool deck.
