Artfully combined contemporary sensibility and the Tuscan vernacular, this timeless farmhouse is a slice of Italian paradise located in a quiet neighborhood near the shores of Lake Austin.
An Italian Paradise in the Heart of Texas - 10910 River Terrace
It is easy to feel transported across the globe when you glimpse the home’s Italian-inspired elements. From the front exterior surrounded by a low stone wall reflecting the style of a typical farmhouse courtyard anchored but the two story tower, to the vaulted ceilings, stained concrete floors, wood beams, Italian roof tiles and airy living room with stone fireplace, all the components are reminiscent of an old Italian villa in a modern home.
The tiles in the fireplace and Italian-style kitchen were taken from an old building in France, as were the dining room chandelier and a few other light fixtures, while the extravagant doors were imported from San Miguel.
A striking feature of the home is the great room, which stretches the full length of the house. Next to the long living area is a screened porch, which leads to an outdoor patio with fireplace and plenty of space for al fresco dining. Beautifully designed for indoor and outdoor living, the grounds offer a plethora of comfortable and inviting places to lounge and enjoy the stunning views.
Homeowners will appreciate the exquisite master retreat plus four bedrooms (two en suite), a billiard or game room, family room, office loft and third small living area that could function as another office, exercise area or sitting room.
In addition to all the special qualities and amenities incorporated into the home itself, there is also a private boat dock with one boat slip. The party deck on top has a portion screened allowing for year round comfort.
