Award-Winning Modern Masterpiece
One-of-a-kind modern masterpiece in Old West Austin, steps to Shoal Creek and minutes from downtown. Designed by lauded Austin architect Kevin Alter, this distinctive, multi-award-winning urban home takes full advantage of its hillside location with absolutely stunning views of downtown. The upside-down floorplan – serviced by an elevator – puts the living room, kitchen and master suite at the top, providing a tree-framed vista to the skyscrapers beyond. The contemporary limestone and steel structure is wrapped in a textural ipe screen that helps the building mesh with the surrounding greenery.

The dramatic steel and glass entry looks through to a stone and native plant-filled zen garden out the back, bisected by an ebonized oak floating staircase. A few steps down takes you past a granite indoor fountain to the bookcase-lined library. The space opens out to a covered patio outfitted with Leuders limestone; beyond lies a cozy fireplace niche and level lawn.
Ascending the staircase to the second floor you will come upon a dramatic entertaining with its own screened deck and catering kitchen. A temperature-controlled wine room provides all the refreshment you and your guests could want. Three bedrooms, one with a murphy bed, fill this level. The staircase to the third floor is punctuated by portal windows that add texture to the space. Arriving at the top level you will be stunned by the light and views flooding in from floor-to-ceiling windows. A sleek kitchen is designed to allow you to prepare a meal while never taking your eyes off the vista.
Throughout the home you will find incredible architectural detail and the finest finishes. Floors of Brazilian cherry contrast with bespoke burled walnut cabinetry in the kitchen and bedroom. The limestone exterior is echoed inside in the library and porthole-lit master bath featuring a large freestanding tub. Cabinetry throughout is exceptionally crafted and thoughtfully designed to provide maximum convenience and storage. This is an opportunity to live in the middle of everything, in a home that will be a design icon for years to come.
