Northwest Hills house description

• As you view the home, don’t miss the 270 degree panoramic views seen from almost every room. Fireworks displays during holidays, rainstorms and spectacular sunsets are show-stopping. Three wrap-around decks, one 2000sq ft deck & three covered decks provide wonderful seating and flow for entertaining. The two-story entry with grand staircase, the warmth of the wood and the buff wall colorings are quite impressive and most welcoming.

• This 6000sq ft Spanish Colonial mansion features 6-8 bedrooms, five full & two half baths, 3 kitchens, and 3 livingrooms on a private acre lot. The master kitchen features granite counters and state-of-the-art appliances. There is also a sitting room with views and a bar/entertainment room giving access to the exterior ten person outdoor jacuzzi. The top level consists of the Master bedroom, another bedroom, and the children's playroom or 7th bedroom. The children's playroom comes furnished w tons of toys and sleeping options for newborns to 5 year olds. There is also a crib in the second bedroom next to the playroom.

• Two separate apartments are downstairs off either side of the 7-car garage each with a bedroom and kitchen. There is a six person poker table w chips in the livingroom on the larger of the two apartments.

• The layout of the home is grand, flowing and conducive to socializing.

• The garage area, with dual motorized doors, is an incredibly flexible space which can be used for parking cars, abundant storage, workout space or crafts.

              Boating on Lake Austin: An added bonus is the dock at Pennybacker bridge is only 3minutes away (.5 miles) from the house. You can pick everyone up at the bridge docking station (there is parking there too).

              Year Purchased: 2011

              Why the Owner Chose Northwest Hills:
              If you want something very close to downtown but also want the views and a peaceful setting that this is the place for you.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Top of North Cat Mountain and some of the most breath taking views in Texas. It the 1980's this house was the highest elevated (900 ft above sea level) in all of Austin. It only takes 10 minutes to get to downtown Austin. Easy.
