I love the Texas Hill Country

Rarely does a custom home of this quality become available here in Comanche Trace. The large courtyard provides an elegant path to the entry way. From the moment you walk in the beautifully handcrafted front door, you are entranced. The foyer, with its hand-cut stone floors and 20-foot ceiling, welcomes you home. Just past the foyer, the large dining room, with its tall and elegant windows, awaits your dinner party. The custom made window treatments are just right and provide a warm and private atmosphere. From the dining room, you can walk into the great room and sit by the fire. The tall ceilings add so much to the atmosphere in this beautiful room. The kitchen is all you have ever dreamed of. The handcrafted tile backsplash and hood are one of a kind. The Dacor gas range has six burners, a convection oven, and regular electric oven. The ceiling in the kitchen is hand cut brick and looks so artistic. There are so many one-of-a-kind touches in this home! The large butted glass windows over the sink look out into the courtyard. When the roses are in bloom, it is quite a sight. This kitchen has so many features that make it special. The butler’s pantry leading from the kitchen into the dining room offers so much storage and everyone loves a well-served party. There is also a large pantry. The bar is beautifully designed. The room is round and the accordion windows are spectacular—they open up completely to the large covered back porch. This house is made for entertaining family and friends – large gatherings are easily accommodated. This home speaks of quiet elegance and the views will simply take your breath away. You will love the way the views just go on forever with no boundaries. The house sits high on a hill overlooking holes 2 and 3 of The Hills course. If you sit on the huge covered porch, you will be in your own slice of heaven. The porch leads to the negative edge swimming pool. The pool is so relaxing and will give you plenty of relaxation or exercise.

The master suite is something special. The bedroom is 20-feet by 30-feet with soaring ceilings. A huge stone fireplace graces one end of the room. The en-suite bath has two large counters with sinks, a very large shower, and a beautiful tub. The water closet has both a toilet and bidet. The suite has his and hers closets and a separate utility room for convenience. Of course, the views are just breathtaking. There is also a large study with built-in book cases and a doorway leading to the back porch. This room just screams “Texas”. It has an understated quality that says, “Important things happen in this room.” There is a beautiful casita with its own private balcony and a breathtaking view of the course and Hill Country. The casita has a large closet and en-suite bathroom with a large shower. It is perfect for guests both long and short term. It affords a lot of privacy and is just steps away from the main house. The living room has the view and lots of space and there is another large stone fireplace. It is a very comfortable room overlooking the gorgeous back porch. This house is truly one of a kind! You can begin to get a sense of it as you drive up Comanche Trace Drive to the top of the ridge and see it sitting on the hill across the golf course. Once you get to the house, you will never want to leave. There is so much character and charm in this Hill Country treasure. LIFESTYLE APRIL / MAY 2013 67
