Home buyers seeking one of those large, breezy Central Texas contemporaries sans Austin-scaled price tag might want to look around in Lakeway—or at least at this rambling, airy house there.
The home was built in 2010 and has many of the aspects fans of the “Texas modern” style go for: A mix of materials (stone, stucco, wood, steel) with slightly rough finishes, large windows with sometimes surprising placement, and a focus on style and luxury in rooms, such as the kitchen and bathrooms, that were once considered merely utilitarian parts of a house. Custom woodwork on cabinets and an expansive ceiling that spans indoor and outdoor areas set it apart from more formulaic builds in the same genre.
The 2,868-square-foot house has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, an office. and high-end features including quartz countertops and Thermador appliances.
The master bathroom features a large tile shower, a garden tub, and a custom closet.
