Hot Hot House
Private West Austin estate checks all the boxes on your wish list
Most homebuyers are prepared for at least a little compromise during their search, but there's no settling when it comes to 2518 El Greco Cove. The Frank Welch-designed soft contemporary home — which spans three lots in the premier West Austin neighborhood of Tarrytown — ticks off every single box on the "dream home" wish list.
Desire a good view? Lake Austin and Westlake Hills can be enjoyed right outside your floor-to-ceiling windows or from the 3,000 square feet of patios and decks. Plenty of room for everyone? Four bedrooms, seven-and-a-half bathrooms, a private guest apartment, and 8,838 square feet ought to do it. A fireplace? Four, just to be sure.
There is also a home office, gym with sauna, vault, and elevator, along with two utility rooms. A butler's pantry, silver closet, dumbwaiter, and wet bar complement the gourmet kitchen.
Water is a reoccurring theme, beginning with the fountain in the entry courtyard and continuing through to the resort-style pool and hot tub, complete with a stone waterfall. A pool room with its own wet bar and full bathroom keep the chlorine contained and away from the main house.
And you've probably never encountered a master retreat as decadent as this one, with its own fireplace, balcony with lake view, and two full bathrooms. To sweeten its appeal even more, there are five closets in the master suite alone.
Theran Greer of Wilson & Goldrick Realtors has this hot listing, which is priced at $6,250,000.
