Who needs to get away when your house looks like this? Designed by Paul Lamb and built by Dalgleish, this private estate at 1109 Kennan Rd. in West Lake Hills blends seamlessly into the more than 5 acres of the property. It’s truly a respite from daily life — and it’s just 15 minutes from Austin's city center.
The 6,310-square-foot home was built to entertain, with a commercial-grade kitchen that features a center island and showpiece range hood above. Storage comes in the form of two-toned custom cabinetry — a mix of tobacco and white finishes — replete with modern glass doors.
A stone backsplash balances the more contemporary accents. Huge stainless-steel refrigerator, freezer, and built-in wide fridge hold all the party essentials in addition to everyday items.
Speaking of parties, the dining room leads out to one of two screened-in porches (the other is off the master) that take advantage of the breathtaking Hill Country views. Four living areas provide plenty of opportunities for indoor get-togethers or intimate evenings with just family. Two fireplaces keep things cozy.
When it’s time to unwind, the master retreat does not disappoint: It’s large enough for a sitting area, and wood accents around the window and on the ceiling provide warmth. The en suite bathroom features the same wood accents on the ceiling and an awesome soaker tub that separates the his-and-hers vanities.
The secondary bedrooms are housed in a separate wing, which includes a game room and private guest suite. From this wing there is easy access to the pool and game court, which provide a great opportunity to entertain friends and family on this totally private estate.
It’s worth mentioning that abundant windows in every room bring in natural light, as well as create views at every turn. Clean lines and concrete floors follow the modern theme, while wooden beams and stone wall accents feel decidedly Texas.
