Perched on a forested hillside overlooking Pease Park, this two-story home is fairly new, as Old West Austin goes—it was built in 2005—but the brick-and-stucco exterior does such a good job of being subdued and unobtrusive, it almost blends into the surrounding landscape, reading like a secret hideaway.

Inside, large windows and bright white walls continue to let the trees outside do a lot of the talking. But this isn’t a sleek, modern affair; it’s an unstuffy traditional with some glitzy accents, including a stunning master bathroom with a freestanding tub and a metallic mix of kitchen fixtures and furniture.

There are wood and stone floors throughout the 4,874-square-foot home, which has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. It also features high ceilings, two living areas, a screened porch/breezeway with a fireplace.

In back are more lovely seating and entertainment areas under tall trees. There’s also, of course, a putting green. The listing for the home at 2406 Pemberton Parkway is held by Diane Humphreys at Moreland Properties. It’s on the market for $3,375,000
