THE glass HOUSE was inspired by the legendary late French architect Pierre Chareau. Sophisticated, clean, crisp and modern, this property is truly spectacular, originally designed & built by a NYC Architect & his wife for themselves. The current owner has further customized w/ award winning architect Mark Carlson AIA. Commercial style custom steel windows & doors, floor to ceiling glass, exposed steel beams & a custom fabricated steel floating staircase make a dramatic architectural statement, along with a recently incorporated pneumatic two-person elevator.  Quarter sawn planks of white oak flooring, what appears to be a floating masonry fireplace, custom lighting comprised of vintage NYC subway lights & bathroom fixtures displaced from George Gershwin's former NYC residence add tremendous character & interest.  The kitchen was remodeled in 2021 with Miele dishwasher, freezer, refrigerator, cooktop, wine cooler, microwave, small plate warming drawer, large warming drawer, built-in coffee maker & double ovens.  This wide open design offers amazing entertaining spaces and museum quality options for art presentation. The addition of a second study, projector AV system, custom automated blinds, well-appointed outdoor cooking center, expanded roof top deck, and steel staircase to the newly created yard and patio made a tremendous impact on the functionality of the living & entertaining spaces. Finally, the rework of the primary bath perfected the primary suite & use of space. Surrounded on two sides by green space allows lush, green foliage to be visible from throughout the home. This property has 2 deeded kayak lockers to make launching your kayak or paddle board easy & convenient & the amenities of this private gated community include Lake Austin water front access, day dock, common area pool & pickle ball/sport court under construction. 12 minutes to CBD, this close-in location has low property tax rate of 1.62 incl Eanes ISD! Seller has TX Real Estate License.
