Homes built after 1940 or so are somewhat of a rarity on the Old West Austin market. This Pemberton Heights home was built in 2001, but its grand scale and style fit perfectly with the older, no less ritzy, homes in the neighborhood.
Situated on a gated, half-acre lot that backs to Shoal Creek and hike-and-bike trails,, the home measures 5,369 square feet and has five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms. Its three stories lean toward the formal, and there seems to be a chandelier in every room, but it of course also contains every modern amenity available, including a high-end garage, workout room, and cook’s kitchen.
