Italian Riviera Mirrored on Lake AustinNow available, generational estate purchase opportunity on the shores of Lake Austin. Hearkening to the lakeside estates of Lake Como, this magnificent villa is considered one of the most desirable and unique properties in all of Central Texas. Sited on 3.7 exceptionally private acres, the cypress dense property is level with the lake and features a graceful, secluded inlet, a spa-worthy negative-edge pool, park-like paths and golf-course-quality manicured lawns, a large chipping putting green which would be impressive for the most luxurious five-star resort. Located on Westlake Drive, the property is close to the conveniences of Westlake and downtown Austin yet feels like you are miles from the bustle.Modern Elegance and Exceptional QualityPresiding over the property is a home to rival any in the most exclusive European enclave. Inspired by a traditional Italian villa, the execution is fresh and sophisticated, lending itself to Austin’s modern lifestyle. The exterior is fenestrated with Palladian-style windows crafted out of blackened steel, offering graceful framing to lake views. Floors of wide-plank white oak ground the rooms. While oversized windows and soaring ceilings keep the rooms remaining light and airy, contrasting with clean white walls and modern, custom iron and woodwork balance subtle elegance and crafted details. Six fireplaces warm the home all with unique surrounds ranging from carved stone to stainless steel adding to the character of each space. Unique and luxurious materials are used throughout, including striking eucalyptus cabinetry in the kitchen and bar, plus textured marble panels, custom stonework, handcrafted fixtures and stunning lighting. Every room has a spectacular view – whether it is the front gardens or the lake shimmering beyond the screening row of mature trees.ENDLESS LUXURIESDesigned with the amenities expected of an estate of this caliber, the interior provides exceptional spaces for large-scale entertaining; from the breathtaking entry foyer which could host an intimate cocktail party to the formal living room adjacent to a room. Each space opens out to the covered veranda, open to the vista beyond and featuring a large outdoor kitchen and bar, perfect for a chef-inspired alfresco party.Of all the breathtaking features, the wine room may garner the most accolades. The circular rustic-limestone space is back-lit to highlight a collection of over 3,000 bottles, with a leather floor the color of the rarest burgundy. The wine room opens up to a serving bar which flows into the ingenious media room. On movie night, extra-large media screen shows films in theater-quality; when not needed it contracts completely in to an architectural header exposing a large window looking out over the lawn.Sweeping staircases or an elevator transport you to the serene, private second floor, where your master retreat awaits. Open to terraces to both front and back of the property, the master suite includes a luxurious bath, dressing room, sun-drenched octagonal walk-in closet, cedar closet and a private living room. A full guest suite is situated across the house from the master and offers a full living room, kitchen and bath. Four additional bedrooms each have balcony access. The separate four car garage with upstairs game room with full bathroom plus study completes the level.
