Well-sited on a scenic waterfront bluff with commanding views of Lake Travis, Architect J.W. Wood's masterpiece marries clean Modern design with a comfortable Tuscan lifestyle. Approaching the property past the adjacent vineyard, the decomposed granite driveway, heritage oak tree in the motor court, xeriscape and cypress trees are evocative of the Italian countryside. The core of the home has been crafted from 1-ton white limestone blocks, acknowledging an appreciation for history, while tall wood ceilings, walnut plank floors, cedar doors and longleaf pine cabinets provide warmth and texture to the interior. Slender International Style steel columns and floor-to-ceiling glass walls embrace the lake view beyond the infinity edge of the salt water swimming pool. White Carrera marble countertops, colorful glass tile, top-of-the-line European appliances, fixtures and fittings complete the palette of materials, infusing the home with a sense of elegance. 4 bedrooms plus guest quarters, 4.5 baths, 6,679 square feet on more than 2 acres.
