|This modern, custom-designed luxury home is built into the side of a mountaintop, in one of the most beautiful stretches of the Texas Hill Country. Situated on 42 acres, it offers spectacular, panoramic views for miles of the surrounding untouched Hill Country. The sprawling 1-story 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 dramatic architecture features 7.5 ft-high, double-paned glass windows as exterior walls that look out at nature–and inside, the ceilings soar to a height over 13-feet. This “green,” earth-sheltered home 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 this 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 offers breathtaking window vistas from every room. A huge, open main living area provides a picture-perfect setting for serene, private pursuits or entertaining family and friends. The very large master 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 spa bath. The master suite also features an oversized walk-in closet and a convenient laundry nook. In addition to a 2nd bedroom and bath, two very large rooms with closets open up to wide window vistas off the main living area, and are 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 collector’s or hobbyist’s dream.
The property is accessed through its own private, gated entrance set off from a scenic state road, and has its own quarter-mile-long private road to the dwelling. It is dotted with private walking trails with birds and other wildlife, as well as areas that could be utilized for hunting, shooting, and other recreational sports. The property is located near Garner State Park and Lost Maples State Park in one of the most beautiful and highly desirable areas of Texas– one noted for its stunning and gorgeous scenery; crystal-clear rivers; abundant deer, birds and other wildlife; and verdant hills thickly covered with cedar and live oaks. Yet, it is an easy and scenic drive to the frequent regional weekend festivals featuring music, arts & crafts, or food & wine, as well as to fine restaurants and shopping in nearby tourist and resort destinations. It is approximately a 90-minute-drive from San Antonio, 2 hours and 45 minutes from Austin, and 4 hours and 15 minutes from Houston, but it is only a 10–minute drive from the county airport. There is also ample space to add a helipad for the busy executive seeking a quick and totally secluded weekend escape in the Hill Country. This amazing property is a rare find that offers breathtaking 300-degree vistas of some of the most magnificent scenery in all of Texas.
