Originally built in the 80’s this house had a very unique look and caused many to look twice when they first laid eyes on it. Pink brick exterior, along with all the various colors accenting trim, balustrades, and other exterior items created a statement for this house and bold exterior look. Many walked away and did not want to see what was inside of this bold vase mansion that sits on Lake Austin. The new and current homeowner did not shy away from this home. He had a vision and a plan. The plan was to make this once vacant home amazing again.
The project started off with the guest quarters, sampling cabinet styles, panels, trim details, etc. to pin down the lavish look for the main house and boathouse. Once the guest quarters were underway, our homeowner enlisted stone carvers from Europe for marble statues and mantles, along with some very special pieces of glass windows that are mounted throughout the house. A lighting and AV specialist were brought on for this project so that the house could be controlled electronically.
This lake front backyard is amazing with a separate pool house complete with a steam shower and full kitchen. In the main house the attic was converted into a media/movie room with a wet bar. Along with remodeling the main house, guest house, and the large yard the homeowner decided it was time to tackle a two story boat dock. This boat dock now looks just like the main house with brick veneer, copper gutters and trim, IPE ceilings and soffits, and with very nice millwork finishing off the elegant look.
One of the most prominent features of this house is all of the interior millwork. It took one of FSB’s talented crew of trim carpenters almost nine months to perfect all the interior millwork that this house has. Every moment in the house has a very intricate detail of wall paneling, crown and column details that all interface with the cabinets, marble statues, mantles, and stained glass features.The grand home can accommodate large parties and multiple guests leaving everyone enough room to find a special place to relax on Lake Austin.
