6,100+ SQUARE FOOT FULLY RENOVATED EUROPEAN-STYLE HOME ON 2.4 ACRES ADJACENT TO PRESERVED GREEN SPACE IN BARTON CREEK’S EXCLUSIVE NORTH RIM GATED COMMUNITY

 

The timeless elegance of a European villa comes together with custom design and contemporary conveniences at 1512 Barton Creek Boulevard in Barton Creek’s ultra-exclusive North Rim neighborhood. Set atop a hill overlooking the Barton Creek Preserve, this home with a Texas limestone façade offers breathtaking views not only through numerous oversized and bay windows, but also from a Tuscan-inspired loggia and two cliffside limestone terraces that are ideal for elegant outdoor entertaining. Enclosed within all new wrought-iron fencing, this 2.4-acre property features mature oak trees, cedar trees, and pomegranate trees. In the evening, outdoor lighting subtly illuminates the landscaping as well as pathways to the terraces. At over 6,100 square feet and featuring 18’ to 36’ ceiling heights throughout the first floor, this four-bedroom home is truly spacious and impressive. It is also incredibly warm and inviting due to thoughtfully considered step-up/step-down transitions between rooms, richly polished hardwood floors, classically carved full-height travertine fireplace mantels, and vaulted ceilings with decorative wood beams. Every aspect of this property has been beautifully renovated within the past 18 months, including landscaping, fencing, and interior finishes, fixtures, and appliances. A digital device-operated Savant home automation system controls television, WiFi, and music. All interior rooms and outdoor living spaces feature integrated speakers. Impeccable attention to craftsmanship is seen in such custom design elements as hand-honed Turkish marble flooring in the entry gallery, a custom farm-style island in the kitchen with a distressed oak base and a 6-inch thick Calacatta marble top, and a built-in terra cotta wine storage wall in the dining room.
