Rare offering of a custom-designed contemporary retreat built into the side of a mountaintop on 42 acres, with spectacular, panoramic views for miles of the surrounding Texas Hill Country wilderness. This large-scale luxury home is the ultimate get-away escape, where you can watch glorious sunrises peek over the eastern hills and gorgeous sunsets descend over the western hills and valleys from your windows. The exterior walls of this earth-sheltered engineering marvel are composed of 9-ft-high, double-paned glass windows, and the ceilings soar to a height of over 13 feet. This green dwelling was designed for optimum energy-efficiency and maximum utility bill savings.
The house contains over 3,700 square feet of air-conditioned/heated living space. While a structural engineer and an architect designed the home with many unique structural features, the buyer will be able to add their own custom touches to finish the home to their own decorating tastes and lifestyle needs. The L-shaped house (see floor plan below) offers breathtaking window vistas from every room of the surrounding Hill Country that you can enjoy while entertaining, cooking, dining, sleeping, showering, or even working. A huge, open Great Room provides a picture-perfect setting for serene, private pursuits or entertaining family and friends. The very large owners suite, located in its own separate wing, offers magnificent views from the bed and sitting area to an open shower and a space created for a sunken bath spa. The suite features a convenient laundry room and oversize walk-in closet. In addition to a second bedroom and bath, there are two large rooms with closets off the Great Room suitable for third and fourth bedrooms--or offices or artist studios. A bonus room could be used for secure storage or a wine cellar. The large 800-sq ft 3-car+ garage is a car collectors or hobbyists dream! The property also has private walking trails with birds and other wildlife as well as areas that can be utilized for family recreational activities.
The property is accessed through a private, gated entrance set off from a scenic state road, and has its own quarter-mile long private road to the dwelling. It is located near Garner State Park and Lost Maples State Park in one of the most beautiful and highly desirable area of Texasone noted for its dramatic and gorgeous scenery; crystal-clear rivers; abundant deer, birds and other wildlife; and verdant hills thickly covered with cedar and live oaks. Yet, the area is an easy drive to music, arts & crafts, food & wine festivals and restaurants in nearby tourist and resort destinations. The property is about a 90-minute-drive from San Antonio, two and 3/4 hours from Austin, and four and 1/4 hours from Houston, but it is only a 10 minute drive from the county airport.
Property is co-listed with Dave Murray Coldwell Banker United.
