If you’ve longed to live at the exclusive Spanish Oaks Golf Club in Bee Cave, now might be your chance. A mansion built and designed by noted Austin architect Bob Wetmore, principal partner of Cornerstone Architects, has come on the market in the posh 'hood for just shy of $3 million.
The 9,261-square-foot estate at 12200 Iron Bluff Pl. sits on nearly two acres inside the gated community. The five-bedroom, five and one-half bathroom mansion, completed in 2008, affords stunning views of the golf course and the Texas Hill Country. DMTX Realty, a sales team affiliated with Austin-based Coldwell Banker United Realtors, has the listing.
Dave Murray, team lead at DMTX Realty, calls the property a “fantastic buy” at $2,995,000 given the Hill Country scenery and the “very private” location within the community. According to Travis County property records, the market value of the mansion is a little over $3.1 million.
Other highlights of the two-story home include:
- Beamed ceilings
- Hardwood floors
- Oversized windows
- Five fireplaces
- A master suite with a private balcony, a walk-in shower, a jetted tub, and dual vanities
- An office with a fireplace, built-in shelving, and terrace access
- An exercise room
- An outdoor space with a fireplace, firepit, terrace, resort-style pool, and spa
- A dining room with a wet bar, fireplace, and wine cellar
Speaking of the dining room, the architect notes it was one of his favorite parts of the project. "We worked on layering the room to give it more visual interest," said Wetmore in a release. "By using the wine wall recessed as a backdrop behind the dining room, we gave a visual and physical expansion of the room and set the fireplace far enough away from the seated guests to allow a roaring fire without leaving guests singed.”
