Big price cuts on big, expensive homes tend to sound a bit breathtaking, because the amount of money entailed in the drop often totals what would be more than half of the total cost of an average home in the same area.
That’s certainly the case with this elegant home in Dripping Springs, which recently dropped its asking price more than $250,000, to $1.595 million. That still might not sound like much of a deal, but it is a gorgeous property graced with a stunning house.
Designed by local architect Christy Seals, the home combines sustainability and a sophisticated design approach that references American modernist traditions. The one-story main house has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms and features oak floors, natural stone counters, handmade tile, wall-sized and clerestory windows, and custom floating cabinetry. Sustainability features include its passive-solar siting, ICF (insulated concrete form) construction, and double-glazed windows.
In addition, there’s a 746-square-foot guest house with one bedroom and one bathroom (total square feet for both homes is 4,778) as well as a working barn with a machine shop.
Listed by The Value of Architecture, the property at 12807 Trail Driver in Dripping Springs is on the MLS.
