The lowdown: In keeping with its timeless style, this home built by Sereno Homes and designed by Jeffrey Berkus Architect boasts a stucco and natural stone exterior with the classic red-toned tile roof and elegant courtyards characteristic of its style. Backing to the 12th fairway of the acclaimed Fazio Foothills golf course, this home allows for year-round views of both green fairways and the natural landscape that surrounds the unique and award-winning enclave Agave Court, located in Watersmark at Barton Creek.
Running throughout are superb surfaces such as smooth diamond-finish Venetian plaster walls; indigenous travertine flooring; alder wood cabinetry, doors, and trim; high-quality oversized aluminum-clad wood windows; and natural stone countertops. The main level is designed for ease of living, with a distinct foyer, cozy study with custom built-in cabinetry, a peaceful reading nook overlooking a quiet courtyard area, and a grand formal living/dining combination with an immense cut-stone fireplace and wood beamed ceiling. The master bedroom looks out onto the pool, courtyard, and golf course while still remaining private. The kitchen is finished with such top-of-the-line professional appliances as Sub-Zero, Viking, and Miele, and features a sit-up center island and custom cabinetry while overlooking both informal dining and living spaces.
An elegant stone fireplace outside provides not only warmth but also an area for intimate gatherings. Tranquil water features and a generously sized spa highlight the negative-edge pool. The considerable covered terrace provides plenty of room for both al fresco dining and living and also features a convenient outdoor kitchen.
