Description

Tall, ivy-covered walls and a lush courtyard present a captivating welcome to this 3BR/7BA, 5892sqft tri-level Mediterranean home in Stratford Place.  Custom-designed light fixtures suspend high over rich mahogany and random Ashlar patterned limestone floors.  Classic Mediterranean columns support elegant groin, coffered and tray ceilings finished with hand-painted filigree.  Attention to detail has been impeccably regulated and the craftsmanship here is second to none.

Living areas are spacious and airy.  An expansive open-concept is comprised of the living room, kitchen and a sunny breakfast area.  The broad island kitchen boasts limestone backsplashes, Viking and Sub-Zero appliances set amid under-lit cabinetry topped in honed Crema Marfil, and a substantial limestone-trimmed hood that caps a 6-burner gas range.  Rounding out a chef’s dream are dual ovens, an island prep sink, ample counter space, and adjacent butler’s and walk-in pantries that make entertaining and everyday meals a breeze.  A handsome, custom-designed iron chandelier in the living room complements a wide limestone fireplace and a coffered mahogany ceiling.  Opposing walls of tall arch-topped windows and French doors provide abundant natural light and allow easy access to the loggia and pool deck.

The bedchamber in the main-level master suite reveals calming canyon views and a wide limestone fireplace embraced in built-in shelves and cabinets.  A sequestered “snoring room” that provides peaceful escape could also serve as a nursery, extra office or workout room.  The suite’s master bath features Crema Marfil surfaces, his and her vanities, a deep soaker tub and an immense customizable walk-in closet with built-in drawer stacks.  A well-conceived, cedar-lined inner closet hides a lockable, alarmed jewelry case.  The remaining bedrooms are all secluded upstairs, along with a mahogany office/library and a media room with a 100-inch screen, cinema seating, surround sound and a wide balcony that over-looks the courtyard.

Just outside the main living area, three wide archways support a large, covered loggia that offers the perfect gathering place for al fresco entertainment and dining.  A warm limestone fireplace centers the outdoor living area where, just steps away, an inviting swimming pool is surrounded by the lush, mature landscaping of the ivy-trimmed courtyard.  Located on the lower level, at the end of a long cobble-stone drive, is a wrought-iron fenced kitchen garden – complete with rows of well-established vegetables, fresh for the table.

Thoughtfully designed, constructed and accentuated, this handsome home is situated on a quiet .62-acre lot located inside a private, gated community.  Other highlights include an elevator, formal dining, an exercise room, wet bar, custom ironwork, plantation shutters and a spacious 3-car garage with lots of storage and an air-conditioned smoking room.  Beautiful, comfortable and close to everything that Austin living has to offer.
