The inherent beauty of natural organic materials and sophisticated modern building techniques creates one of the most spectacular properties just minutes from downtown Austin, Texas. Located atop one of the highest points in Westlake Hills with sprawling downtown views, the Waterfall House, as it’s known, was built in 2014 by Jon Luce and Dick Clark Architects with the utmost attention to detail and extraordinary perfection rarely found.
True luxury, privacy and exclusivity exist in every space of this 4 bedroom, 4.5 baths, 2 living, 1 dining, 1 study, approximately 4,736 SF modern work of art. A seamless flowing floor plan integrates the outdoors by way of multiple walls of 10-foot steel and glass windows and doors that fully open to just over one acre of rarely found in Westlake Hills flat manicured lawn, a treasury of oak trees, intimate seating areas, an expansive +/-1,310 SF indoor/outdoor living terrace and a breathtaking negative-edge pool and spa overlooking the hill country and clearly defined cityscape.
Superbly clean lines, detailed woodwork and flawlessly smooth artisan plaster walls are just some of the structural details that help to define the unique character. With keen attention to the siting of the house, renowned architect Dick Clark chose to maximize the perpetual hilltop breeze and the sunrise and sunset so that nearly every room throughout is bathed in natural light. This includes the master suite situated on the main level with floor-to-ceiling doors that open to the veranda and floating pool and spa. The light-filled master suite includes an incredibly detailed custom walk-in closet, spa-like bathroom with a walk-thru shower, double floating vanities and soaking tub, all with unobstructed city views.
While a thoughtful approach to detail and imaginative design are among the best features of this house, the sleek kitchen, open dining area and glamorous living room are focal points that demand attention for their dramatic unparalleled downtown views as well as their exceptional finishes. Supremely flat finished walls, vaulted ceilings, custom white lacquered Arete cabinetry with LED lighting, Miele appliances, a large butler’s pantry, 2 dishwashers, imported European designer lighting fixtures, a 12-foot fireplace and a full entertainer’s bar are just a few of the luxurious elements found throughout this true work of art.
With iconic views and an idyllic setting, this distinctive modern retreat is truly a unique and one of a kind property in Austin, Texas.
