This grand home sits in a highly sought-after area of Austin called Westlake. The mls listing has this to say about the estate, Unique Tuscan style villa with custom finishes and elegance & charm at every turn. Private guest house, theater room, pool, spa. Handmade hardware, mahogany doors & windows. 7-step plaster inside & outside. Views of Lake Austin and downtown.
At just under 14,000 square feet, the estate has six bedrooms and seven baths. Like the Balcones Woods home, the homeowners entertain frequently.
After a bit of research, I found out this home is owned by a former Dell executive (not Michael Dell's brother) and has a list price of $9 million. Can you imagine paying the annual taxes of over $100,000?
Just a little update about the Balcones Woods home... It is listed at $10 million and remember that storage room? Apparently, it's 1300 square feet all by itself. I also found out who owns it, but I won't share that news on my blog. Unless you live in Austin, you probably won't know who it is, anyway.
Finally, a reminder about my 100th post party and giveaway. This post is the 92nd one for Canyon Wren Cottage, and I'll be giving away three prizes to random readers who comment between the 90th and 100th posts. Click here for more details.
