Property description

Tranquil, private setting close to 'what's happening' in Austin! Lovely 2 story home nestled in trees in Northwest Hills. Relax and enjoy views of Lake Austin, Mt. Bonnell and greenbelt from the covered second story deck.

The kitchen, dining and living ares are open and airy with lots of windows to enjoy the home's natural surroundings. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and access to the second story deck and fantastic green belt views. Downstairs there are two bedrooms. One is a bedroom suite with a queen size bed and roomy sitting area which has two twin sleepers for flexible sleeping arrangements. The second bedroom has a queen size sleeper sofa.

Owners are staying in a cottage behind the house during rentals. We promise complete privacy. We have a circular driveway which provides parking at the front of the house.

We hope you will enjoy our family home and it's proximity to everything Austin.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Kevin & Kelly Fitzgibbon, owners. Kevin is from Rangiora,(near ChristChurch) New Zealand. Kelly is a native Texan. Married 25 years with two children, Max & Ryan. Kids spent most of their lives in this home. We live in the home but rent out certain times of the year.

Why the Owner Chose Northwest Hills:
We bought this home for its great view. We have a wonderful view of Lake Austin and the Greenbelt. We are in the heart of the city but, feel like we are away from it all positioned in the hills of Cat Mountain. We do a lot of outdoor living and this house is great for relaxing and enjoying the surroundings. We love the proximity to Austin's nature trails and lakes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great view. Open airy feel about the place. Lots of windows and light. We see all types of wildlife around the place.
