For many homes on Lake Austin and the Colorado River, it’s the waterfront that takes center stage. And while the site of this lake house, across the river from Steiner Ranch, is certainly breathtaking, the interior of the home deserves more than a moment in the spotlight as well.
Sited on a little over 1.82 acres of Lake Austin waterfront, the single-story home features large expanses of glass and minimalist, horizontal design that echoes the line of the lakeshore, visible through every room.
The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom home is subtly designed to work with its surroundings, rather than detracting from them, while providing visual pleasure, comfort, and luxury. White walls, dark wood floors, and steel window frame for the surrounding greenery and water. Sleek materials such as quartz, stainless steel, and polished limestone and unique such a raw-wood framed windows and a cantilevered fireplace add visual interest.
Minimal landscaping and entertaining areas perform a similar function on the exterior, which features a pergola-covered patio, a hot tub, fire pit and boat dock.
