Welcome to a truly special home in Westlake Hills. Nestled on a spacious corner lot beneath the shade of a sweeping heritage oak tree, this New England style farmhouse feels private and remote while still enjoying convenient access to downtown Austin and nearby attractions. Step through the wide front door into the welcoming entry, revealing open views of the main floor. Wood-plank floors and casually elegant finishes create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The living room has style and substance with a substantial brick fireplace and wood beams overhead. It’s an ideal setting for gathering with loved ones and creating lifelong memories. An inviting eat-in bar unites the kitchen and living room, while the roomy kitchen boasts a professional Five Star range, tile countertops, and ample storage. Embraced by trees, the adjacent screened-in porch provides a tranquil sanctuary for al fresco – and mosquito free -- dining. The main floor also boasts a gracious dining room, an open library, and a wood-paneled study. Upstairs, a large primary bedroom is a tranquil haven with dual closets and an en suite bath. Two additional upstairs bedrooms share a hall bathroom with colorful Talavera-style tile, a clawfoot tub, and walk-in shower. The lower level of the home offers a large utility room, a casual media room, and abundant storage space. Air-conditioned with a modernized bathroom, a detached garage apartment accommodates the diverse needs of modern living. The exterior of the property boasts its own allure, with dry stack rock walls, a fenced backyard, and a crushed granite courtyard. As you turn onto your street each day, you'll be greeted by a breathtaking view of the downtown Austin skyline, reminding you of the balance this home provides between privacy and accessibility.
