The lowdown: Get ready for a real estate opportunity like none other. This Tuscan masterpiece, which includes a main house and guest quarters spread over three acres, is valued at $5.675 million, but the starting bid at its October 7 auction is a mere $3.5 million. Savvy buyers will see this as their opportunity to land a gorgeous home in the coveted Austin neighborhood of Mirador, which also offers membership to the exclusive Barton Creek Country Club.
No customized detail has been overlooked, from the vaulted ceilings to the Cantera stone accents to the painted frescoes. Views of downtown Austin and the Hill Country can be enjoyed from the more than 4,000 square feet of outdoor living space, which encompasses a lighted sport court and an expansive covered patio that runs the length of the home. Through the archways can be glimpsed the resort-style infinity pool and spa, perched to overlook the stunning canyon and city views.
Inside, the home is built for entertaining with a separate catering kitchen, two wet bars, and a walk-in wine closet. Three fireplaces up the coziness factor, along with exposed beams that highlight the remarkable ceilings. And if those elegant furnishings have caught your eye, there is an option to purchase the home fully furnished.
All eligible, as-is, non-contingency offers will be considered by the seller on October 7 at 4 pm CST, after which the seller will select the highest and best bid.
