An incomparable sanctuary suited for wonderful entertaining
Poised perfectly on the top of the Texas Hill Country, high above Lake Travis, 18009 Ranchland Hills commands respectful appreciation at at first sight.
With its warm welcome, meandering driveway and gated entryway, the excitement is felt long before one steps inside. When walking to the front door, lake views come into the scene and once inside, the revelation of Lake Travis becomes breathtaking. The narrative of this home is an unexpected intersection of traditional Hill Country design with a soft contemporary perspective that impeccably frames unobstructed water views from every room!
Seven Custom Homes is the builder that created this “welcoming, warm, comfortable, extravagant, unique and richly imagined space for sophisticated owners of international and unparalleled taste.”
There is something special in every room
Refined palettes blend natural elemental surfaces such as hearty concrete pillars and polished deep brown cabinets with a touch of sleek metal. Every finish is luxurious with nothing to spare on the lights and other fixtures that were selected.
Treasure-like details are scattered throughout the home in the lustrous floor tiles, jewel imbedded drawer pulls, and a curved grand walkway to the master wing of the home. Architectural surprise is found in many of the ceilings and gives great interest to the rooms.
An open kitchen is outfitted with all the needs of a chef and graciously opens up to 2 living spaces, a dining space, and picturesque views.
The master wing houses the master bedroom that opens to the pool, a private office, and expansive closet with washer and dryer, and a grand bathroom with coffee bar and refrigerator.
Multiple terraces and outdoor spaces provide many options for relaxing or entertaining. The wet edge pool is situated at the perfect elevation to be nestled in the hills for observing the boat activity on the lake and fireworks from Starnes Island. On peaceful evenings, enjoy dinner al fresco on the poolside patio or at the fire pit and soak in the views.
Beyond the main house and pool is yet another entertainment area that blends an Austin creative vibe with the grandiose Hill Country. It is a wonderful juxtaposition: street food, eclectic music and good times is what happens in the lower arena. With a graffiti wall and outdoor pizza kitchen, friends will enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere around a 2nd outdoor fire pit arranged under the string lights that hang from the live Oak trees.
Whether you are feeling luxurious and refined or want to let your hair down and get in your blue jeans, this estate allows you to live it all!
