attributes make this home appealing. One is the close-in NW

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

of his Austin home. Almost $1.1 million into it, the price
is only $835,000. The transaction is actually being handled

home with boat slip
Close-in West Austin. $899,000. The "rain forest"
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.
The house has three bedrooms, study and an artist's

18401 Flagler in Belvedere. $129,900 (Area LS)
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.
price for a home in this exclusive
In Riverplace. $339,900 (Area RN)
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.
