The city of Austin is no stranger to picturesque views. Social media accounts are filled with snapshots of the Texas State Capitol Building along Congress Avenue and the reflection of Downtown Austin’s skyline in Lady Bird Lake. Beyond the public beauty and excitement of the city, however, lies a world of private oases—the luxury real estate market is currently brimming with some of Texas’ most Instagram-worthy homes.
Completely remodeled in 2012, this exquisite traditional home is filled with contemporary flare. Situated on a 1.47-acre private lot on a great cul-de-sac street, the tree-lined private entrance exudes a feeling of pure luxury, creating a sense of anticipation of what awaits inside. Just beyond the glass front doors are five bedrooms, five baths, three living spaces and two dining rooms. 33 Cousteau Lane. Listed by Phyllis Patek, 512-799-8500
