5011 Balcones Dr
Austin, TX 78731
This stunning modern showpiece in Balcones Park belongs to a local designer and has been published in Austin Monthly Home. It sets perched on a bluff above Perry Park and affords seasonal views of the downtown Austin skyline. The property feels extremely private along the park's edge while remaining walkable to many popular neighborhood eateries and coffee shops.
The home features custom architectural xeriscape that is perfect for entertaining large groups or small intimate dinner parties. From hand-welded steel with angled reveals, to smooth saw-cut limestone pathways, to hand-selected light fixtures, attention to detail is evident throughout the space. The outdoor area includes a professional quality putting green, heated spa, deck for al fresco dining and a lounge area perfect for fireside chats.
The carefully curated interior features smoked maple hardwoods, professionally designed wall graphics, floating media console and sophisticated finishes all housed in a sleek modern package. The Surge Linear Suspension chandelier by Tech Lighting sets the tone for a contemporary kitchen built with the most serious chef in mind. A built-in oven and five-burner Kitchen Aid cooktop paired with sleek vent hood, dishwasher and floating shelves accented by colorful Ann Sacks glass tile lend an open and airy feel to an otherwise hardworking kitchen space.
The views envelope even the most discerning buyer in the master suite to ensure the perfect place to retire in the evening. Custom California Closets and Elfa storage wardrobes alongside a luxurious master bath with Silestone counters complete the owner's retreat.
Spacious guest bedrooms afford room for guests, an office and an exercise room, if one wishes.
The residence is steps away from iconic restaurants such as Chez Zee, Russel's Bakery, Epicerie and Fonda San Miguel to make a walkable yet also private life possible.
