This high-performance luxury home has 3-bedrooms and 2.5 baths. The environmentally friendly design is an Energy-Star certified custom-build inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright. It’s modern design and hilltop location creates a uniquely dramatic living space. The delightful panoramic views of Lake Travis and the surrounding Texas Hill Country highlight nature’s beauty just outside your window.

Inside the Home

Inside this stunning home you’ll find the great room with 12 ft ceilings, large windows, light ledge, and 7.1 surround sound speakers with concealed wiring, remote IR control for both the TV and stereo. An additional living area is located on the ground floor with large windows. The modern gourmet kitchen comes equipped with Energy-Star appliances, a large walk-in pantry, self-closing drawers, granite countertops, dual sinks, drawers for pots and pans, and pull-outs for garbage and recyclables. There are many healthy living features built into the home such as linoleum (Marmoleum) and bamboo flooring, low-VC paint, and Venetian plaster to discourage mold and mildew in the bathrooms, . The fireplace uses alcohol as cleaner source of energy instead of burning wood or natural gas.

Outdoor Amenities

Outdoors, you’ll love the 600+ sq. ft. of decks, mostly covered – perfect for both bird-watching and stargazing. They include outdoor speakers and ceiling fans. There’s a 7’x6′ greenhouse for protecting plants and vegetables any time of the year. The property includes 0.88 acres on 2 lots with a two-car detached garage, extra parking, and second driveway. It would be possible to build a second house on the additional lot.  The 12′x 8′ non-chlorine swim spa uses Agrisept-L, a natural product which replaces the toxic chemical chlorine in the treatment of water.

Energy Production & Conservation

The home is equipped with ground-mounted 3 Kilowatt grid-tied photovoltaic solar panel array, an 80-gallon solar hot water heater w/electric backup, wiring for a future wind generator through the roof cupola, and extra switches to prevent vampire energy use by the TV and dishwasher.

The passive solar design uses the home’s architecture to reduce energy consumption with a roof overhang to shade all the south-facing glass. Insulation includes a spray foam fully sealed envelope  and low-e double pane windows. The bathroom fans are on timers.

Rainwater Collection & Conservation

The rainwater collection system has an 8500 gallon storage capacity with city water for backup. Multiple carbon filters and UV treatment purify the water. A standing seam metal roof on house and garage, an on-demand pump with pressurized tank, and extra wide gutters assist in rainwater collection. Low-flow faucets, showers, and toilets help conserve water along with water-wise landscaping.
