Buy a 1970s Westlake estate for $1.25M

Classic split-level home on almost an acre of land

Split-level house with stone and wood facade behind big tree
5 Hillside Court
Via Triple Mint Real Estate

Technically speaking, this one-story, frame-and-stone home is not in West Lake Hills; it’s in Hillside Court, a tiny subdivision on county land surrounded by the tony, central-southwest suburb. Regardless, it’s in the Eanes school district—and that’s the important thing, right?

Also important: The hillside home is on a forested, 0.89-acre lot; it has a big, semicircular deck framing views over the tree-covered expanse in the direction of downtown Austin; it was built in 1979 and therefore features a generous number of tapered, stone columns and miles of Saltillo tile.

Even those who aren’t fans of the home’s late-1970s/early-80s features will likely be impressed by the number, size, and angled edges of its copious windows (and maybe a little by an improvisation in the front driveway, which has been transformed into yet another outdoor living area).

Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, the 2,713-square-foot home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. a fireplace, vaulted ceilings, and built-in bookcases. It’s listed by Triple Mint Real Estate.
