The hill country place you've always dreamed of (contract pending)
Available. Price is $699,000
You know that little scenic ranch or farm on ten acres you have always imagined? This is it, and it just went on the market. No ordinary spread, this compound style arrangement has a main house, three guest houses, greenhouse and a barn that looks like it belongs on a postcard of the hill country. Two more benefits--the gardens and shade trees are out of this world, and it is all sitting next to the Blanco River. It is about a 45-minute drive (non rush hour) from the Oak Hill "Y".

Central Austin: Sexiest home in town. (contract pending)
Home is available. Price is $2,995,000 (Area 1B)
Attention movie stars, tycoons and high-tech entrepreneurs. It is hard to believe a home this private is tucked away in central Austin. It is sensuous. It is romantic. It is like no other. It was designed by one of the "Top 100 Architects In The World". The home theater was created by the same technician that designed the scoring stage for Lucas Film's Skywalker Ranch. There are two pools. Guest house. Four garages. No neighbors in back. Some of the walls "disappear" for seamless living between indoor and outdoor spaces. There is an "energy" here that will make you feel like you have been teleported to a resort. If you can write a check for $2.95M don't buy ANYTHING until you see it.

Have you ever heard the real estate advice about owning a home surrounded by much more expensive houses?

This residence is owned by an interior designer, and you know what that means--it is off-the-chart impressive. The home is tucked away on a 3.5 acre hillside lot that will make you think you are living in the middle of your own nature park.

Very private villa on a hilltop setting, close-in NW Hills (sold)
$949,000 (Area 1A)
Three attributes make this home appealing. One is the close-in NW Hills location (just off Mesa at 2222). The neighborhood is desirable, but most houses are dated. This one, however, is very modern, and it has one final make-you-swoon benefit: the 1.4 acre site (no usable yard) sits up so high on the hill, the privacy will make you feel like you're on vacation. The 5000 sq. ft. villa has two master bedrooms, elevator, putting green and studio space. One of the owners is a New York Interior Designer which means the home looks like something you'd see in a magazine. Just listed, the seller made an eye-popping decision about this price. Read all about it!


Westlake home on dream lot (sold)
Price is $750k (Area 8W)

The 5,000 sq. ft. masterpiece (designed by Luis Jauregui) is hidden away on very private 1.4 slice of pristine hill country terrain. Sparkling improvements have been made such as repainting the exterior and adding high-end appliances.

In Crystal Falls (sold)

In West Austin (sold)
West Austin Relocation Seller. $849,000 (Area W)
Why is this price so low? A local executive just landed a dream job in Silicon Valley, and he negotiated a guaranteed buyout of his Austin home. Almost $1.1 million into it, the price is only $835,000. The transaction is actually being handled by the relocation company.
Located near the intersection of Bee Caves and Hwy. 71, the home is flush with benefits. The one-acre lot is lush with no houses immediately in back for added privacy. In back all of the tress block the view, but there is a sweeping vista upstairs. The spa-esque master is downstairs, and if you need a first floor bedroom and bath for elder parents when they visit, this floorplan has it. The kitchen includes a walk-in pantry and a wine room. The transaction also includes a $28,000 fort.

Waterfront home on 12 acres (sold)
On north side of Lake Travis in Lago Vista. $1,650,000 (Area LN)
Owned by a Houston business tycoon, who even knew a waterfront home like this even existed? It is on approximately 12 acres of shoreline-hugging, breeze-hogging acres of delicious scenery. The place will make you "feel" like you are staying at a private resort, but it is just one house--designed by a noted architect. There is a dock, fire pit, playground area and pool. The home has over 4,500 square feet. Click the link to read a complete history of the owner, and the house.

Not-so-big home with boat slip (Sold).
Close-in West Austin. $899,000. The "rain forest" house.

Your head will spin when you discover where the house is located. This may be the most picturesque little street in town. There are only about forty houses on this narrow road which runs along the shores of Lake Austin.
Built in 1995, the home was designed by a noted architect. It includes three fireplaces, a pool and a boat slip (located at the end of the street). Broadcasting no clue from curbside view, what lies behind the home--the setting that this home backs up to looks like something from you've seen in nature magazines.
The lot goes back more than 300 feet, and the back section dissolves into a mountainous hillside that will make you think you're standing at the edge of a rain forest. Amazing.
The house has three bedrooms, study and an artist's studio.

Hillside view lot in west Austin (sold)
18401 Flagler in Belvedere. $129,900 (Area LS)
The Belvedere neighborhood is off of Hamilton Pool Rd just west of Hwy. 71. Belvedere feels like a collection of small estates because all of the lots are large, and the homes have sprawling space between them. It does not happen often, but the owner's circumstances have changed--he has moved and has stopped all plans for building here. This is a 1.157 acre hillside, view lot, and it is, by far, the friendliest price of any currently listed.

Friendly price for a home in this exclusive neighborhood(sold)
In Riverplace. $339,900 (Area RN)
The country club community of Riverplace is sitting on some of the most scenic hill country land in the Austin area. Located in NW Austin just off 2222, most of the houses here are large (prices not top $3-million dollars) which translates to higher pricing. But why pay for more home than you need? If a 4-bedroom house with about 2,300 square feet is right for your needs, come see this home. It sits on a wide corner lot and has been professionally updated in recent years. If the price makes you swoon, your head will spin when you see the private lake and access to nature trails that are just down the street from this home.
