Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Joel and Valerie are fortunate to occupy this beautiful, remodeled contemporary home. Valerie attended the University of Texas and didn't leave and Joel joined her as an Austinite in 2000. We have 3 wonderful boys that range in age from 6-21. We love the outdoors, our 3 laying hens and beautiful orange trees and vegetable garden. Our favorite way to spend the evening is grilling on the deck, swimming and watching the sun set over the hills!

Why the Owner Chose Northwest Hills:
We couldn't resist the incredible backyard with the beautiful view, orange tree and serenity of trees and hills. We take great pride in our organic garden, fruit trees and landscape. Our property is alive year-round with seasonal blooms, herbs & veggies and yes fresh eggs and oranges from late Nov through early Jan! We purchased and remodeled our home with family and entertaining in mind. There's great flow between the rooms yet plenty of space to slip away to for private time. Our home's central location puts is just 15 or so from most of Austin's hot spots.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is the perfect retreat and getaway for all! 1. Families and groups enjoy a perfect Austin getaway. Our home has everything needed for luxurious living inside or out with classic hill country views and all that Austin has to offer just a short car ride away. 2. Business travelers who visit Austin and want a private retreat with all the furnishings of executive living are close to downtown and all major highways.
