One of Austin's most accomplished high-tech executives has just landed a dream job that involves a move to California. The Silicon Valley corporation is funding a guaranteed buyout of his Austin residence. Within the real estate industry these transactions are known as a "relo", and they are regarded as the very best buys because the asking price is cut in order to bring about a quick sale.
If $849,000 is a comfortable price range for you--and if west Austin is where you want to live--stop whatever you are doing and get to this house right away (it is being sold way, way below cost).
The home is located in far west Austin.
The design has five bedrooms, four baths and about 5,200 square feet (per seller). The home is filled with one head-turning feature after another. Before the current owners bought this home, they spent months combing through the "for sale" inventory, but when they walked into this one they instantly knew it was the "one". Here is an overview of what makes this residence stand out from others.
Details About The
The sumptuous downstairs master has a soothing bath area that will remind you of staying at a spa. The curved-glass shower and oblong tub blend into each other like sculpture. Also carved into this space is a sun drenched window seat where you could curl up with a good book on a rainy day.
If you have older relatives who will visit--or if there is any chance you may need to take care of one of your parents some day--there is a solution here. In the back right corner of the first floor you will discover a generously-sized guest wing with bath.
Also downstairs, a sprawling store room--not an attic, but a genuine store room with shelves and bright lighting. You can use this space to organize holiday decorations, sports gear, school project "stuff" and tax receipts. Why hasn't someone thought of this before?
If you need a quiet office where you can get serious work done, you will find it here--a large, quiet, paneled work space behind French doors.
And if you like to cook, you will give very high marks to this well designed kitchen. It does indeed have one of those restaurant-caliber stainless stoves--a dual fuel set up with six burners, double ovens and a breakfast griddle. All other appliances--including the built-in fridge are also stainless. The island work station includes sit down seating so you can pour guests a drink and have them mix right into the action as you prepare a meal. There is even a walk-in pantry. The final compliment is the wine room.
Then the sellers added over $100,000 in extras--all of which are included. Almost $20,000 was spent on plantation shutters and window treatments. $36,032 was spent creating an outdoor terrace with built-in grille. If there are young children in your immediate or extended family they will be beside themselves when they see the artisan-made fort. It costs $28,000 and includes a turbo slide, rock-climbing wall, firepole, rope net, bridge, swings, a playhouse, mail slot, bench seating and a desk. It is positioned under shade trees.
