Striking modern new build in the middle of everything that makes Austin one of the most desirable cities in the country. Located on a quiet loop just a few blocks from South Congress in Travis Heights, this is the ultimate location for those who want to want to live on a tree-filled, neighborly street and also enjoy the pleasures of urban life. Imagine being able to stroll down to June’s All Day for brunch on a sunny Sunday then back home via Little Stacy Park for a few rounds of frisbee with the dog. Town Lake Trail and Downtown are minutes away and when you’re wishing for a change of scenery, the airport is just an 11-minute drive. Exquisite Craftsmanship and Special Details Built by renowned Jack Boothe Construction, this home reflects the exquisite craftsmanship and extra special details that Jack has become known for. The moody black exterior is accented with Douglas Fir and topped off with a white standing-seam metal roof. Lush landscaping framed by bespoke, handcrafted steel provides a backdrop for native plants and trees to create privacy and shade. Inside, stunning materials and beautiful European oak floors ground the bright, sunny rooms looking out over the verdant back yard, sparkling pool and neighborhood treetops. The open main living space encourages entertaining, with guests flowing seamlessly from inside out to the Lueder limestone-covered patio, sun deck and lawn beyond. The kitchen centers the space and serves its function beautifully with quartz waterfall countertops, 48” Wolf Range top and other chef’s appliances, plus a charming butler’s pantry with a convenient wine cooler and storage. Flexible, Sunlit Spaces to Relax and Play The thoughtfully designed floorplan features flexible spaces that can adjust to your needs. Two en-suite bedrooms downstairs can function as family sleepers or use either as an office, home gym or guest room. At the top of the stairs, you will find a charming hideaway under the eaves, sunlit by skylights. The lounge features a built-in wet bar and refrigerator to spoil the owners with evening snacks and the morning’s first brew. The primary suite enjoys a glorious spa bath with oversized shower covered in gleaming tiles; the walk-in closet is outfitted with extensive built-in storage. A fourth en-suite bedroom completes the upper level. This is the ultimate urban home with the benefits of a traditional neighborhood and close-in excitement.
