One-of-a-kind estate property on over 10 acres nestled up against Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve to the back and overlooking breathtaking Austin skyline views. This vast two-lot parcel is a rare opportunity to own substantial acreage within eight miles of downtown; the size and location of the property offers extraordinary privacy while also allowing for far-reaching panoramas. Two recently remodeled existing homes offer move-in ready options. This property also affords the potential to build the ultimate showplace home. While you will be surrounded by woods and wildlife at home, Austin Country Club is a quick five miles to the north, and shopping and dining in Westlake is six miles south. Exceptional Eanes schools are nearby, as are several prestigious private institutions. The larger home is a sumptuous entertaining showplace with elegantly proportioned rooms flowing in to one another and out to the covered terrace, pool and lawn beyond. Features an oversized bar between the sunken living and family room. A luxuriously sized primary suite enjoys city and hillside scenery, a spa-like bath and two walk-in closets plus an adjacent study. Two additional bedrooms and a mirrored fitness/dance room offer plenty of space. The second home is a charming mid-century cottage with a bedroom and study/flex space; a separate pool house with bath can serve as an ultra-private primary suite. A screened porch and large deck expand the living space outside. Set on a grassy terrace, the pool hangs over the hillside, and you will find yourself spending hours floating at the edge, enjoying the view. The incredible property is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live a Hill Country lifestyle while enjoying the pleasures of one of the most exciting cities in the country. *Taxes are estimates based on 2021 rate and 2022 assessed value.
