Discover the magical Austin views from this contemporary cliffside estate
At a recent mix-and-mingle event with Austin's top luxury real estate agents, we were introduced to this fine Austin estate located at 2800 Stratford Drive. Listed by Elite 25 member Laura Gottesman, broker/owner of Gottesman Real Estate, the breathtaking home sits on over an acre of land and offers views of both downtown Austin and the lake.
"It is a timeless, soft, contemporary estate perched on the cliff overlooking Lady Bird Lake," Laura Gottesman explains.
"It is a timeless, soft, contemporary estate perched on the cliff overlooking Lady Bird Lake," Gottesman explains. The estate — which includes over 10,000 square feet of living space — exquisitely marries contemporary European and traditional Asian architectural flavors with its Texas Hill Country aesthetic.
The expansive property features a four-bedroom main house, along with a two-bedroom guest house and a one-bedroom "cliff house." Inside the home, the overall theme is brilliant execution. Exquisite details and quality craftsmanship extend through every room, from its kitchen (a dream for the home chef), to its indoor gym, and sleek master bedroom accommodations.
Floor-to-ceiling windows maximize sweeping views from inside the home, whereas the property's exterior amenities offer many ways to relax and unwind. Stroll the grounds and uncover a hidden garden, or enjoy a negative-edge swimming pool with a spa that cascades into lily ponds.
"The setting and views are magical," says Gottesman. "It has always been one of my favorite homes in Austin!" More information on this home, whose listing price is available upon request, can be found on its website.
