Located in the hilly northwest realm of Lost Creek, this rambling, split-level home has fantastic Hill Country views and a lush, private, tree-covered backyard that spill down a hillside.
While that might be its main attraction for some, we are also fond of its classic 1970s stylings. While there has been some updating of finishes and flooring, the basics are all there.
Built in 1976 (the U.S. Bicentennial!), the house has a soaring, vaulted living room ceiling with clerestory windows on one side. While not exactly sunken, the open-plan living room/kitchen are a step down from the entry and dining areas, which are distinguished with some nice iron railing.
The living area also has a large stone fireplace, wood floors, and a row of floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors that open on to a deck spanning most of the back of the house’s top story, overlooking the Hill Country and the lush, private back yard.
The 2,208-square-foot home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, with a second fireplace in the master bedroom.
In addition to the wooden decks, there’s a large stone patio with grill and fire pit out back. And, yes, Virginia, there is a hot tub.
