Every once in awhile something truly special becomes available…
Perched high on the cliffs over Austin’s Lady Bird Lake (aka Town Lake) is an architectural masterpiece. Austin architect Paul Lamb designed this home as a contemporary interpretation of a classical style, with clean lines, generous proportions, and an understated elegance.
Less than 5 minutes from downtown, the home feels like a private, exclusive compound. Tucked away on a wooded 3.3 acres, on what was once 3 lots, it features an astounding 650 feet of water front.
The living room boasts a wall of windows that look out onto Lady Bird Lake as it meanders east to reveal a breathtaking view of the downtown Austin skyline. The location of the home, high above the water, permits an unparalleled 180 degree view east, north and south of Austin.
The home was built by Don Crowell, who may be Austin’s premier, high-end builder. The quality is extraordinary. Consistent materials and architectural details create a strong statement and provide design continuity from room to room. Walking through the home, one is struck by its’ great light provided by the magnificent doors and windows. Yet more drama comes from the surfaces in the home. From counter tops, to floors, to fixtures, to built-in’s; everything is unique, tasteful, dramatic, simple yet subtly grand. Individually, they are each special. Collectively, they create a true masterpiece of design.
