Located in the quaint and gated Paleface Ranch community and the sought-after Lake Travis school district, this home strikes the perfect balance between enjoying a relaxed Hill Country lifestyle and having easy access (only 20 minutes) to area amenities such as the Hill Country Galleria, Whole Foods & tons of other shopping/dining/entertainment.
Nestled on over 10 private Hill Country acres, this stunning custom home gracefully blends contemporary lines with vintage farmhouse touches. A long meandering driveway welcomes and winds you back to the home tucked privately behind groves of oaks. Borrowing from Chicago craftsman styling, the home presents as a cozy cottage from the outside and then opens up into an awe-inspiring great room. Boasting handsome hardwoods, beamed and vaulted 21' ceilings, and tongue-and-groove pine niches, this space is equal parts homey and grand.
The entire home is replete with style and personality. A floor-to-ceiling Chicago brick fireplace is a worthy focal point, and a wall of windows showcases the 3-season veranda and outdoor oasis beyond. Layout is thoughtful yet efficient, with family room, kitchen, dining and music/reading nook wide open to one another, creating an ideal space for entertaining.
Kitchen is both innovative and inviting with enormous elder wood island and open shelving. In addition to a roomy dining area, the sunny morning room is the ideal place to enjoy your coffee and breakfast. There is also a huge walk-in pantry and fabulous mud/craft room.
Owner's suite features soaring ceilings, cabin-pine accent wall, and Hill Country views. The bright and spa-like bathroom offers a spacious walk-in shower and oversized soaking tub. Additional guest room with walk-in closet and adjacent full bath graces the downstairs as well. Upstairs, two roomy bedrooms share another beautiful bathroom and boast walk-in closets. There is also one more full bedroom and bathroom in the guest cottage above the garage (even that space is welcoming and stylish.) A 2-car garage and additional parking pad for a boat/other toy provides plenty of space to store your vehicles.
As spectacular as the house is, the outdoor living space is equally fabulous. The enormous 3-season screened porch is perhaps the favored place to gather and entertain. And just beyond it, Hill Country paradise awaits. Complete with a pool, outdoor kitchen, full garden and oak-shaded picnic area, this is a true outdoor oasis.
Neighborhood residents enjoy private access to the Paleface Ranch Pedernales River Park - which offers a boat ramp and direct access to this arm of Lake Travis, as well as easy proximity to nearby area amenities such as county parks, boat ramps, marinas, wineries, restaurants & more. What a great opportunity to LIVE LAKE TRAVIS and enjoy the peaceful TEXAS HILL COUNTRY!
