This remarkable custom-designed modernist home is nestled among lush gardens on an oversized 9000+ square foot lot in Central Austin’s Robertson Hill neighborhood, just minutes from downtown Austin. At the street level, a gated pedestrian entrance with a suspended bridge crosses the sunken outdoor patio 20(ish) feet below. A substantial steel door swings open to the light and bright foyer and dramatic steel and concrete staircase. On this level is the formal dining, open kitchen, and living as well as a guest suite and full bath. Off of the living area is a large patio, ideal for dining al fresco or lounging. Follow the stairs up to find a true owner’s sanctuary which includes a light-filled primary suite with an adjacent bath, walk-in closet, and laundry. Extensive rooftop decks and a balcony lead to a standalone room, ideal for a home office, library, or listening room. Downward to the ground level presents a gated parking area and covered carport along with a private entrance to the home. The ground level includes a guest suite with a private bath and laundry along with an attached kitchenette and living space. This space can also be closed off as a guest apartment, or work as 2nd living and prep kitchen for outdoor entertaining. 10-foot sliders open to the expansive outdoor living space and gardens.
