Family living doesn’t get much better than this. Imagine more than 3,700 square feet of Tuscan-inspired villa built by Waldrop Builders, at Greenshores, a luxurious waterfront community on Lake Austin, where family fun, lake living and a relaxed lifestyle are the order of the day.

Take in the expansive front yard, and then enter an open courtyard garden that takes advantage of native plants and local greenery to create an inviting retreat. And that’s just the outside.

Walk into the foyer and that’s where you’ll see something not found in most luxury homes. A round foyer connects the home’s kitchen great room and gallery, creating drama by offering visitors just a peek of what awaits in each room. Architect Elliot Johnson, AIA, says "it’s what’s unique about a house that makes a statement" and this one certainly does.

It’s an entrance that requires visitors to be in motion to appreciate all it has to offer and to be adventurous; without exploring, one might miss its subtleties. The home’s great room is reminiscent of a classic Tuscan dining room, that is, if it were in a centuries-old villa. With its 17-foot high ceilings, exposed beams and classic clerestory windows, this practical room combines the formal living and dining rooms for an elegant and comfortable space.

Another unique feature in this showplace is a curving wet bar that connects the great room to the kitchen. It’s a link to the formal and informal spaces of the house. Other special touches include Thermador appliances in the kitchen, a gourmet cook’s dream; a pedicure spa in the master bath; and a three-car garage.

A perfect family retreat, this well-designed home offers four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, and a study, plenty of room for the most active lifestyles. Outdoor living areas are in keeping with the lake lifestyle, and boat access to the water means easy decisions for spontaneous weekend plans.
