  • 5 Beds, 4 Bath, 4346 SQ. Feet, 0.44 Acres Residential Austin, TX 78730

Newly re-released! This upgraded modern-contemporary 4300 square feet two-story home is set on the hill of Shepard Mountain, walking distance from the infamous Pennybacker bridge, Lake Austin boat launch and many hiking trails. The oversized custom iron doors, matching 3 car frosted glass garage doors and tasteful xeriscaping give the home incredible curb appeal all year long. The house sits on nearly 1/2 an acre with a large fenced-in backyard with plenty of space for a garden, pool, outdoor kitchen, or a play area. An undeveloped portion of land behind the fenced yard is ideal for a guest house, man-cave, or she-shack. Neighboring only one other home, the large lot dons treetop views of West Austin’s Hill country providing a sense of peaceful escape while being centrally located just 10-15 minutes from Austin’s 3 largest points of interest - downtown, Lake Travis and the Domain. Picture windows scale the high 14 foot ceilings drawing plenty of natural light during the day while high-end designer fixtures beautifully light the inside and outside at night. Fixture and appliance upgrades are found throughout the house including a new beverage refrigerator, two new microwaves, & new dishwasher. The master suite includes a sitting area that opens onto the outer balcony, large bathroom that leads into a two-room custom walk-in closet with hidden fold-out ironing board, tie racks, laundry drawers, a window bench, an island, and accessory shelves. The home contains walk-in closets to all bedrooms plus 5 additional coat, linen, and storage closets, an attic and an external shed. The lower level features an open family, media / entertainment room with a wet bar containing a new stainless steel beverage fridge and microwave, and a custom billiard table. Lastly, a secret dog door hidden under the stairs leading to the large fenced yard with tall shady trees means this home is even a dog’s paradise.
