Situated nicely between Lake Austin and the Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve, this five-bedroom, six-bathroom home is pretty big—6,800 square feet—but seems to break with the Italianate McMansion mode endemic to the western hills. It has a modern, open layout that emphasizes sweeping views, and it's situated on more than an acre of land. The wet bar looks to have plenty of room for Hendrick's gin and Tito's vodka (product placement?—see pic), and its ample outdoor entertaining area overlooks its terraced backyard with a pool and hot tub/spa.

A little bit country, a little bit Cali
