Modern treetop home in Lost Creek asks $889K

Alight in the forest

Large, open neutral room with modern furniture, kitchen, moose head on wall
1805 Big Canyon Drive 
Via Realty Austin

The listing for this home doesn’t include a view of the front of the house, but that’s probably because—to judge by the Google street view—it’s almost completely obscured the trees and mature plants that obscure it.

One reaches the woodsy hideaway via a small bridge that presumably spans a culvert. The main floor of the home is at the top of a steep, forested incline and steps down two-more stories, which follow the terrain, split-level style, into the greenbelt behind the house; all in all, the lot measures just over half an acre.

While the 3,224-square-foot house is set among the treetops, it looks bright inside, with plenty of light entering through large, east-facing windows, while light-colored hardwood floors reflect it back into the open-plan main room.

The house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms and is on a quiet street in a choice Lost Creek location, just southwest of West Lake Hills.

The kitchen has granite/marble counters and opens to the family room. Floors throughout the home are wood, laminate, and carpet.

The master suite has two closets and a separate shower and bathtub.

The home has a bonus room and a media/home theater.

Family-room windows, a covered balcony, and porch below provide a view of the woods and greenbelt behind the house.
