Nestled on nearly 4 private acres with approximately 159' of frontage along the Pedernales River Arm, this home offers both the best of Hill Country and Lake Travis living.
A long driveway meanders you back to the home tucked privately behind groves of live oaks, where both the circle drive and cozy front porch welcome you as you arrive. Abundant flora and fauna blanket the land with extensive greenery, wildlife-resistant plants, and fenced areas that protect the more sensitive vegetation. The three-season color, with an explosion of wildflowers in the spring, keeps the landscape beautiful year-round.
This stunning custom home gracefully blends Hill Country style with craftsman touches, and you feel immediately at home when you enter. The superior craftsmanship is apparent throughout, with a corner stacked-stone fireplace serving as a worthy focal point and a wall of windows showcasing the extensive patio. Layout is thoughtful with the family room, kitchen, and dining wide open to one another, creating an ideal flow for entertaining. Kitchen is inviting with large butcher block island and corner sink overlooking the river. The custom cabinets offer plentiful storage and the Kitchenaid dual-fuel range makes this kitchen a joy to cook in. There is also a huge walk-in pantry and spacious utility room. Open dining area is the ideal place to enjoy your coffee and breakfast (if you can stand to not take advantage of all the gorgeous outdoor living.)
Additionally, there are 2 primary suites--one gracing each level--so you can choose to soak in the views or skip the stairs. The lower-level suite boasts a walk-in closet and opens up to the front veranda via a private entrance. The upper-level suite leads to an enormous balcony with stunning views of the river and Hill Country. Upstairs, there is another bedroom plus a study that can easily be used as a 4th bedroom (and offers expansive views and access to the upstairs balcony.)
As spectacular as the house is, the outdoor living space is equally fabulous. Shady live oaks dot the landscape and there are multiple places to hang your Hill Country hammock. The side patio just off the kitchen offers the best vantage point for watching the sun set and the river flow. It also leads to the dipping pool, which has seating of its own. An enormous flagstone patio sprawls from the back of the home and all along the bluff. Complete with a built-in grill, cozy firepit and arbored al fresco dining area, this outdoor oasis area is sure to be your favorite place to relax and gather. And just beyond that, riverside paradise awaits.
Though the house sits high upon the bluff, a metal and stone stairway leads the way to the water. There you'll find a single slip boat dock with electric boat lift that can be adjusted with the river level. There is also a neighborhood riverside park and boat ramp just down the street.
Other coveted features include a strong well with a 2500 gallon buffer storage tank that provides capacity for irrigation as well as peace of mind, and a 2-car detached garage with tons of storage space and a dedicated workshop area - a dream for any craftsman/hobbyist. Horses are also allowed on property (with and per restrictions).
Located in the quaint, gated Paleface Ranch community and the sought-after Lake Travis school district, the location of this home allows you to enjoy the relaxed Hill Country lifestyle AND convenient proximity to area amenities. You will love having easy access to the Hill Country Galleria, Whole Foods & tons of other shopping/dining/entertainment such as county parks, boat ramps, marinas, wineries, distilleries, restaurants & more. What a great opportunity to LIVE LAKE TRAVIS and enjoy the peaceful TEXAS HILL COUNTRY!
