There comes a point when you have to take a step back and acknowledge when a home is more than just a home. Sometimes you have to recognize that that moment a house takes your breath away is the moment you know you’re in the presence of an estate worthy of such a loft title. 7609 Escala Drive is just such a home – excuse me! – estate. Set on a lushly landscaped 2.69-acre property on Escala Drive and surrounded by sweeping Texas Hill Country views, this 9,713 square foot, five-bedroom stone mansion with two levels of gracious Tuscan-inspired porticos seems to be purpose-built for life lived to the fullest.
Located in the prestigious gated Foothills of Barton Creek community, this property boasts not only highest quality features and materials, but has possibly the BEST outdoor living spaces I have ever seen. Outdoor living resembles an exclusive private resort with a pool terrace kitchen, a pool with five waterfalls, a spa, and a swim-up bar, and an elegant covered patio with a monumental stone fireplace. A fully appointed separate Pool House is ideal for overnight guests or an at-home office – not that you would get much work done if your eye wanders out the window at the lush and expansive view.
Interior design details include high beamed and vaulted ceilings, beautifully crafted crown and base moldings, hardwood and stone tile floors, decorative wrought iron stair railings, and plantation shutters. Every bedroom offers an en-suite bathroom and the palatial Master Suite has been designed with a sun room sitting area, a fireplace, and an exquisite marble and stone bathroom. Home technology features include a full indoor-outdoor sound system, automated window shades, and a security system. This home offers multiple formal and informal entertainment rooms and a chef-caliber kitchen – all enjoying abundant natural light through almost floor-to-ceiling picture windows.
I have said that 7609 Escala Drive is the kind of resort-style living that people dream about at night when they envision their perfect paradise. Imagine if perfect paradise was in fact your perfect reality? They do say that dreams can come true – and in all honesty, this home is just the place for something like that to happen. Click here for the perfect home tour and as always, give me a call to set up a private showing to see exactly what dreams are made of! Talk Soon!! – Ashley.
