Remarkable property on .88 acre, perched above Lady Bird Lake and surrounded by nationally-featured gardens. The landscape has been lovingly created and tended over the years, creating a singular experience that could rival a botanical garden. Starting at the dining room doors, the gardens begin with a limestone-surrounded pool and spa, lushly accented with native flora. A crushed-granite path winds through the expertly-planned landscape, opening up to surprises at every turn including the spectacular outdoor dining area shaded by arbored Bradford pear trees. There is even a large, fenced vegetable garden for supplying summertime salads.
The unique lot has a front driveway off prestigious Stratford Drive and a second with shortcut to Rollingwood, making shopping and errands more convenient. Sweeping limestone steps lead up to a hand-carved double entry door which centers the contemporary stucco structure. The home is perfect for spectacular entertaining with flowing interior spaces opening up to the gardens beyond.
The interior is elegant and calm in tones of ivory and tan that set off the view past twisting oak trees and out over the hills. Creamy travertine floors cover the lower level and complement the limestone fireplace that connects the living and dining room. The large kitchen opens to a family room and enjoys a view out over the landscape. Completing the main floor, the master bedroom features a sitting room warmed by a limestone-clad fireplace, large bathroom and spacious walk-in closet. The second floor contains two additional bedrooms, a large storage closet and a bedroom-sized wine room with built-in racks.
