Trendy Travis Heights home offers tree house views and a touch of Austin cool
They say Austin has a Neverland complex, and you’ll never feel more like one of the Lost Boys than at this Travis Heights home. But this isn’t make believe — the stunning greenery that engulfs the house truly gives the property a tree house feel for a sense of privacy and total escape from the city.
The modern three-story abode features three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, two living spaces, and a total of four patios. Each patio is at a different level and side of the house, giving you a brand-new perspective wherever and whenever you’d like to enjoy the outdoors.
As you walk up the large winding limestone staircase, you can take in the contemporary build that gives the home an impressive and stylish appearance. Once inside, the first floor contains an open floor plan ideal for entertaining — the kitchen, dining, and living areas are all connected. Out back is a xeriscaped patio with views of Austin’s heritage trees. Other design features to note include high ceilings, recessed lighting, built-in bookcases, and en suite bathrooms for each bedroom.
Built in 2012, huge windows are scattered everywhere throughout the home, bringing the outdoors in. Upstairs, hardwood floors give warmth to the master bedroom, and the bathroom’s Carrera marble countertops, soaking tub, and generous closet make you want to stay awhile. Relax and take in the downtown skyline and neighborhood sights on the third floor rooftop terrace.
With a convenient location in the heart of Travis Heights, the house is walking distance to many attractions, including downtown; Lady Bird Lake; and South Congress Avenue’s popular restaurant, bar, and shopping destinations.
