Celebrity couple/power duo Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker have put their distinctive, 15-acre Hill Country estate on the market for almost $6 million, Austin Business Journal reported last week. (That doesn’t mean they’re leaving Austin, which was already the longtime home of tennis champion Roddick when the couple married and settled here in the mid-2000s; they’ve moved on to a slightly smaller place in the area—which they still love, according to ABJ.
Designed by notable local architect David Webber of Webber + Studio and built by award-winning architects’ favorite Crowell Builders in 2003, the 7,367-square-foot mansion has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms and sits on 15.21 acres with views of the Hill Country.
The home already had a a number of standout features that appealed to design lovers (Decker is one, as well as being a designer in her own right), including reclaimed pine floors and wood beams from the Chicago Stock Exchange. The couple built upon that unique sensibility, which marries luxury, beauty, and distinctive taste to unusual and, occasionally, slightly outré effect.
Decker oversaw the reinvention, making design decisions and sourcing materials herself. She brought in the white marble that covers counters as well as some kitchen walls from a San Antonio marble yard, a giant piece of wood from a Round Top garage for the dining table, pored over kitchen paint colors and picked a really good one. She let her fondness for the work Austin ceramicist Keith Kreeger shine.
You can learn more about Decker’s style, process, and even the brands, artists, and costs of things she purchased in an article about the “reinvisioning” (listings word) of the home in a story that Curbed Austin published in cooperation with MyDomaine in 2016.
In addition to the marble, the rustic beams, and the fireplace, the kitchen has a six-burner wolf range an a a temperature-controlled wine room, a six-burner Wolf range, and an outdoor summer kitchen.
The former master bedroom has been converted to custom guest quarters featuring three closets, an office with a wood-burning fireplace, and full bathroom with a walk-in shower and soaking tub.
On the opposite side of the home is a recently added “owner’s hideaway”: three secondary bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms (one with a gorgeous copper soaking tub), a game/family room, and an office. Bonuses such as a , double-head rain shower, coffee station, built-in entertainment center, and sitting area create a true retreat for the entire family to enjoy.
The backyard provides Hill Country views from its pool, kitchen, covered patio, and fire pit.
