“Special” doesn’t begin to describe this rare architectural jewel designed by renowned and award winning architect Mell Lawrence, AIA, and featured on the Austin AIA Homes Tour. This stunning terraced masterpiece with floor to ceiling glass feels like a tree house floating above Barton Creek. Multiple layers of subtle texture and color draw your interest and build intrigue, making you wonder what sophisticated surprise will present itself in the next space. Elemental materials such as Brazilian Ipe hardwood, sawed and hand chiseled big block fossil limestone, metal, antique pine, and expansive glass all blend seamlessly with the lush natural setting. This unique estate features an amazing catering/wine/entertainment prep area, and a spectacular glass bridge overlooking the negative edge dipping pool and connects the library/media room. The beautifully appointed lower level guest suite enjoys a serene and private patio as well as outdoor shower. The spectacular primary bedroom retreat feels like it floating is in the midst of lush, treed privacy with dramatic views and the rooms are literally washed in natural light. A private guest suite is the third bedroom/bath located over the detached garage with a private entrance. Exceptional outdoor living/entertaining areas include a stunning limestone fireplace and gas grill. Located in the gated enclave of Watersmark within the Barton Creek development, you will find this rare treasure privately situated at the very end of the road, beautifully sited between the Fazio golf course and Barton Creek. Stroll down to Barton Creek directly from this property and enjoy the great peace and tranquility that the landmark creek has to offer–an extraordinary setting by any measure.
