Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We have four children and absolutely love Austin and the surrounding Hill Country. I grew up in Austin and returned after college to raise my family there. I grew up water skiing on many of the area lakes. After many vacations all over the world, I still think Austin has the prettiest sunsets ever! I also absolutely love that you can go almost anywhere in casual clothing.

Why the Owner Chose Sky Forest, Lost Creek, TX, USA:
We bought this property for its incredible views and spacious acreage as well as the highly acclaimed school district. However, we soon discovered that the older neighborhood was filled not only with eclectic and groovy homes, but owners as well! The guest cottage is a comfortable and casual 70's style split-level house with modern conveniences.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, Location, Location! The West Lake Hills area of Austin is safe, within 15-30 minutes of anywhere you want to go, and the rolling hills are absolutely beautiful. The views from the upper covered deck and poolside are just as beautiful at night as they are during the day. This home and neighborhood are hidden jewels in the hill country just west of Austin. You feel as though you are in the country with the wide open spaces, but you are one mile from a major highway which can take you to the festive nightlife in downtown Austin, or the vibrant SoCo (South Congress) area south of downtown. The F1 racetrack is less than 20 miles away. For those interested, there are helicopter shuttles that run to/from the nearby Barton Creek Resort & Spa (just down the road) and the Circuit of the Americas.
