The lowdown: Though recently constructed, this Italian-style farmhouse feels as if it's been a part of the landscape for centuries. A covered loggia with fireplace greets guests upon entry, leading to a spacious living room with extra-tall ceilings and an abundance of windows. The Old World feel is present throughout, but modern conveniences can be found in the gourmet kitchen and spa-like bathrooms. A 580-bottle wine cellar, with both interior and exterior entry points, resides below the main house, while an open summer kitchen — with a wood-burning pizza oven — is perched to show off panoramic views. The standalone guest casita with its own open terrace furthers the illusion of a luxurious country retreat, though the home is only 20 minutes from downtown Austin.
