SOLD: Classically beautiful Great Hills home
This classically beautiful 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home is located in the serene and picturesque neighborhood of Great Hills in northwest Austin with gently rolling hills and tree-lined streets.
With a beautiful brick exterior and two-story entry nestled among graceful trees, this home makes an excellent first impression. Elegant leaded glass transom windows and sidelights add subtle sparkle as you approach the front door. And that’s just the beginning.
Step inside and you’ll be wowed by the soaring ceilings, arched windows, abundant natural light, and designer color palette that greet you. Elegant architectural details, like crown molding, leaded glass windows, parquet wood floors, archways, and plantation shutters set this 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home apart.
The entry, formal living area, and dining room are ideal for entertaining, and the nearby chef’s kitchen allows you to serve your guests with ease. The adjacent informal living area offers additional space for more casual gatherings. A stunning fireplace with a one-of-a-kind travertine stone and marble penny-tile surround anchors the living room room. The downstairs powder room has been wonderfully updated with a pedestal sink and floor-to-ceiling mosaic tile.
The kitchen looks like it is straight out of a magazine. The richly-colored granite counters perfectly coordinate with the ceiling-height soft-close cherry cabinets, and blown glass pendant lights add a pop of color over the island. The induction cooktop with pot-filler is accented with travertine tile in an on-trend herringbone pattern, and the rest of the kitchen backsplash is adorned with natural stone tile. Ceramic tile floors make clean-up a breeze. As you can see from the photos, no detail was left out of this completely custom kitchen. There’s even a charging station built into the island cabinets.
Not only is the kitchen space gorgeous, it also functions like a dream. This expansive area has ample counterspace, and a bay window at the kitchen sink creates a bright space for cooking. A spacious island with built-in prep sink creates a secondary zone for preparing meals. Grab a drink from the beverage fridge and enjoy a casual meal at the bar, gather around the table in the breakfast nook, or step outside for al fresco dining on the back deck.
A large owner’s suite is situated downstairs, while the secondary bedrooms are all located upstairs. With coffered ceilings and a bay window, the owner’s bedroom is airy and light with wood blinds for privacy. The en-suite master bath has a spa-like feel with travertine tile, stone floors, oil-rubbed bronze Moen faucets, and a frameless shower with marble and travertine tile details. A large vanity boasts two sinks, and there’s even a built-in laundry hamper. A stand-alone Hydro Systems soaking tub is ideally situated under a Scottish leaded glass window. You may never want to leave…
Upstairs three spacious bedrooms with tall ceilings flank a light and bright secondary living area. You’ll find the same attention to detail in the upstairs living space with its coffered ceiling, wood blinds, and corner windows. The upstairs bathroom features large-scale travertine tile, earth-toned mosaic tile in the combination shower-tub, and a large cultured marble counter with dual sinks. A skylight ensures the bath space is well-lit.
The flexible floor plan functions well. The home includes abundant storage space with a large linen closet upstairs, and a dedicated laundry room downstairs. Not only does the home have a traditional attic, it also has air-conditioned storage space above the two-car garage.
In addition to the interior living space, the home also includes an oasis-like backyard with full sprinkler system. The composite deck has a sizeable outdoor dining area, as well as lounge space. It’s the perfect place to grill and unwind with a drink with friends and family while the kids safely play on the playscape with mulch ground cover to cushion any falls. The established rose garden and Confederate Jasmine arbor perfume the air, and crepe myrtle and red bud trees add seasonal color. A stone patio and hidden garden with raised beds complete the backyard.
Little details you might not notice also make a big difference in how the home lives. For example, the attic vent helps improve energy efficiency, deep gutters with a cover guard simplify home maintenance, and the house includes both carbon monoxide and fire detectors. As a bonus, the home is wired for surround sound in the upstairs living area and outside.
With 2,773 square feet of interior space, this spacious home feeds to Davis Elementary, Murchison Middle School, and Anderson High School in Austin ISD. Shopping, groceries, restaurants, and entertainment are easily accessed along nearby Highway 183, Mopac, and Highway 360. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the trails and playscape at the Great Hills Trail neighborhood park and the nearby golf course.
