Built by the award winning, Austin-based Heyl Custom Homes, this extraordinary property is located in the gated enclave of luxury homes known as Verano in Barton Creek. Completed in 2014, the home was strategically positioned on the large 1.28-acre premium lot to take advantage of the adjoining 4,000-acre Barton Creek Habitat Preserve and the magnificent Texas sunsets. The builder’s hallmarks can be found throughout this residence: dramatic design elements, quality construction, and an exceptional single level floorplan. The outcome is an iconic modern design that exudes sleek luxurious living and invites effortless entertaining.
An unusually long circular driveway is paved in a herringbone pattern with seamless concrete pavers creating a chic modern look as you approach the home. The oversized 4-car garage spans 1,100 square feet and features epoxy floors and 4 individual LiftMaster® garage door controllers.
The professionally designed landscape is the perfect complement to the home with its thoughtful arrangement of water-wise xeriscape, native Texas plants, and a lush backyard lawn.
Classically modern, the home exudes a sophisticated warmth thanks to the carefully chosen interior finishes. The massive glass and steel entryway sets a dramatic stage for the entire home. Natural light floods the interior with its high ceilings thanks to walls of Pella® windows throughout.
The showcase kitchen is finished with sleek espresso custom cabinets, a massive 10’ x 4’ slab island, a walk-in pantry, Emser tile backsplash, a 42” Sub Zero® refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, Bosch® dishwasher, Wolf® microwave, 48” Wolf® dual-oven 6-burner range with griddle, and InSinkErator® instant hot water. An adjacent wet bar connects the dining room and acts as a modern butler’s pantry with its ample counter space, wine storage, Sub-Zero® beverage refrigerator and Sub-Zero® ice maker.
Multiple living spaces provide flexible options and can easily adapt to the owner’s lifestyle. The great room off the kitchen is filled with natural light and features a welcoming 74” limestone-clad gas fireplace. This is truly the heart of the home as it flows into the formal dining area, wet bar, kitchen, and glass enclosed den.
The glass den is the most glorious room located just off the kitchen and was designed with a remarkable 38 panes of steel reinforced glass. Dual sets of French doors provide easy access to the outdoor kitchen and covered pool deck.
The primary bedroom reflects a subtle sophistication and enjoys prime pool views and an airy vaulted ceiling. The primary bathroom was designed to be a tranquil oasis and
features a standalone tub and walk-in glass-enclosed rain shower. The primary suite also includes dual closets with exquisite custom walnut cabinetry. Three additional well-proportioned bedrooms are all ensuite.
The private west-facing backyard borders the Preserve and acts as an extension of the interior space with its outdoor kitchen that includes a 36” Wolf® grill and a 24” Sub-Zero® refrigerator. An extensive covered outdoor living area, fire pit, ceiling fans, lush lawn and one of the largest pools in the neighborhood make this the ultimate outdoor retreat. The pool design also includes a dramatic water feature enjoyed from the home’s main entrance and an elevated waterfall-edge hot tub.
The home is fitted with 7” wide white oak hardwood flooring, limestone walls, a sloped standing-seam metal roof, outdoor IR security cameras, Lutron® light controls (many with dimmers), Carrier® HVAC, MinkaAire® fan controls, Hunter Douglas® shades, Aqualink® pool controller, and Jandy® Pro Stealth pool equipment.
Just a 6-minute drive to the Barton Creek Country Club and the fully renovated Omni Barton Creek Resort and Spa. Four minutes to St. Michaels, 5 minutes to St. Gabriel’s and 9 minutes to Oak Hill Elementary School.
