Every now and then, I run across a home for sale that is such a gem. This week's home is one of those. From the bones of the home itself to the finishes and interior design -- pure eye candy.
Nestled on half an acre in the middle of west Austin yet very secluded, this Mediterrean home blends right in with its surroundings. It's unpretentious yet really gorgeous, inside and out. (as always, click on pics for larger views).
Did you notice the venetian plaster walls in the foyer? Gorgeous!
I was hoping the MLS listing would say what the kitchen island countertop is. It sort of looks like concrete, and with its mottled finish, it also resembles galvanized metal. I can't imagine a home like that having a metal counter in the kitchen, but this is Austin, and nothing should surprise us.
I love the master bedroom. While I'm a little over plates on the wall, the plate arrangement above the bed works. I really wish there were more pics of that room and that other bedrooms were shown, as well.
Here's the skinny on the house:
Five full baths and two half baths
Five living areas
Pool, spa and cabana
And it all can be yours for a cool $4.5 million. Or we can take a few notes and recreate the look for less in our own homes. :-)
