Located smack in the heart of leafy, historic Old West Austin, a home that added a whole new chapter to that neighborhood’s design story stands out even among the many remarkable houses in the area. It’s the second luxury home designed by local game-changing architecture firm Alterstudio to hit the market in the past month—this one much larger, at 4,343 square feet, and twice as expensive.
Built in 2008 by award-winning Crowell Builders, the three-story, limestone-clad home is sited dramatically on a hillside just west of Pease Park. It’s quite the showcase indoors and out, with a pivoting glass entrance door, hardwood floors, and an elevator, among other features.
It has has four bedrooms and five bathrooms and features 270-degree city views through the floor-to-ceiling windows on the top-floor living area and master suite. For going extra posh, there’s also a formal dining room with a caterers kitchen and a wine cellar.
