Our clients wanted all the charm of France and the formal elegance of Versailles. We accomplished that to our clients satisfaction with this very formal French home. Situated along a canal off of Lake Austin, the home captures all the charms of the old and new.
The exterior of the home has many interesting features, such as copper gutters, Brazilian slate roof, cut stone surrounds, dormer windows, French doors, stone front porch and integral colored stucco.
Once you enter the 10 foot tall French doors you are immediately struck by the view through the house to the pool and canal behind the house. The foyer has a soaring ceiling and winding stairway. Just over your head is a massive crystal and brass chandelier, just in front of the Juliet balcony off the game room upstairs.
The commercial kitchen with its granite countertops and carved stone vent over the gas cook top over look the large family room with its huge stone fireplace and massive wooden beams, all overlooking the pool and canal. The floors are rosewood and travertine stone. The bathrooms have marble or granite countertops. The back loggia has slate flooring, a wood burning fireplace, carved stone baluster and a built in gas grill for outdoor cooking all overlooking the pool and lush landscaping at the back of the house.
