1401 Spyglass Drive, Austin, TX 78746
Contemporary home overlooking Barton Creek Greenbelt surrounded by spectacular views of limestone cliffs and abundant greenery that ensure privacy. Expansive white walls frame a multitude of windows allowing natural light to illuminate and accentuate the modern architecture of this multi-level condo. Two levels of expansive decks reaching out to the canopy of trees offer the unique sensation of life in a tree house.
Entering the living area, the warmth of the natural oak wood floors stands in luxurious contrast to the lush foliage just beyond large sliding glass doors. A wide expanse of windows spanning the entire east wall are equipped with motorized shades to adjust for the perfect lighting. High ceilings allow for art to be displayed and viewed from different levels. The wood burning fireplace is a welcoming feature during the winter holidays.
Entertaining is pure joy in this home. The dining room is surrounded by north, south and east views and the sliding glass doors make it easy to take the party outside to the adjacent decks for an immersive outdoor living/dining experience in the treetops. An awning is ready to give shade when needed. The kitchen was gutted and remodeled in 2018 with all new cabinets featuring soft-close drawers, marbled quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and porcelain tile floors. A sizable breakfast nook and side deck adjacent to the kitchen provide an additional dining area for overflow while entertaining.
Retire downstairs to the primary bedroom, where the Greenbelt views continue through the sliding glass doors leading to a private balcony/deck. Sleep in comfort with the motorized shades you can control from your bed. The 2018 remodel of the primary bathroom included a soaking tub, a double shower with two rainwater shower heads, marble floor tile and custom vanity with double inlay sinks. The private downstairs study, adjacent to the primary bedroom, also with an ensuite bathroom, offers the flexibility of an in-home office or an additional bedroom. Elevated ceilings in the third-floor bedroom provide an ideal guest room with an adjacent full bathroom.
This Spyglass condo not only has an extraordinary view but prime location as well. It is minutes from so many of Austin's attractions and yet situatedon a high point overlooking the Greenbelt so that it feels like you are miles away from the kind of congestion that comes with big-city living. From the deck directly off the living and dining rooms, you peer through branches of well-pruned trees and see your way across a quarter mile of canyon to limestone cliffs bordering Barton Hills. In the morning, the sun rises over the limestone cliffs and lovely homes across the way; in the evening, when you take a seat on the deck, the sun going down behind you illuminates the limestone walls across the Greenbelt and turns the rock a warm, rose-tinted hue. It's peaceful and beautiful. And you would have no idea that there is another living soul nearby.The location of this home is a gift to individuals who value beauty and privacy but also want ready access to the vast array of entertainment and shopping that Austin has to offer.
