KITCHEN & LIVING SPACE This house was designed for entertaining. The living, dining, and kitchen combine to form an open-air space that allows you to cook, eat, and relax in one space. This space opens up to 2 floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors out to the huge lower patio. With the doors open, there’s one continuous space and a refreshing cool breeze even in the summer nights.
The kitchen is stocked with all the basics you need for cooking or baking including gas stove top range and convection oven. All appliances are brand new and top-of-the-line. There’s an abundance of counter space and a 6-person bar. Whether you’re cooking or just watching the cook, this kitchen is built for entertaining.
The living area has a 12’ by 8’ couch custom-built for the space and could easily fit 10 people. The 60-inch TV is setup to be viewed from any point in the main living area, kitchen and even out to the patio. When you’re ready to dim the lights and get cozy, the fully-calibrated surround sound system make for the ultimate theater experience.
PATIO With as much as the house has going for it, the patio is real gem. Two separate 370 sqft patios open to 180-degree views of South Austin. You’d never imagine you’re just minutes away from downtown as you listen to the surrounding nature and gaze upon the park and pond below. There are no backyard neighbors here, just open air and panoramic views!
The downstairs patio has a Weber propane grill, ready for a full weekend of barbequing. You’ll find that you rarely want to eat inside as the 6-person patio picnic table commands a cool breeze and fantastic views.

About the owner: I'm a hard-working, fun-loving, busy entrepreneur. I've moved between Texas and California the past 10 years but finally settled in my personal favorite town, Austin! I love the people, the energy, the friendliness, and the young free spirit radiating in everyone.
I own a small company making phone wallet cases called CM4 and spend about 90% of my life keeping that running and growing. If I'm not at the office, then I'm likely out running the trails or playing ultimate frisbee. I LOVE me some ultimate frisbee.
I'm happy to help with suggestions for what to do around Austin. There's always something fun going on!
Why the Owner Chose Rosewood: I put a contract on this home before ground was broken. The contemporary Brazilian style and breath-taking views blew me away. I didn't know such incredible views existed so close to downtown!
The Unique Benefits at this House: You won't find a view like this from a house anywhere within 5 miles of downtown Austin. This house puts you close to the action of downtown, but far enough away that your feel like you're almost in the hill country on the patio.
