Among many formulaic properties in Austin, 5204 Cueva stands out as an oasis in more than one way. Gated and fully fenced (mostly hidden), the almost three-acre property offers total privacy, a park-like setting and a unique ambiance and can serve as a temporary resting spot. From outside, the main house is reminiscent of the Texas ‘Cabin’ it started out as, before resort developer, Bernt Kuhlmann applied his magic touch, making this a ground-up remodeling effort. The result is a home where what you see is not what you get. Step inside, and the Texas cabin is miraculously transformed into something more like a New York loft, with soaring ceilings, and windows, all facing the lush green of the acreage surrounding the house. The master bedroom suite is an oasis by itself. The kitchen area is part of the open space downstairs, and allows the chef of the house to socialize with his/her friends while cooking up lunch or dinner. The iconic Big Chill, bright red nostalgic refrigerator complements the red SMEG dish washer. There are two additional bedrooms downstairs, in the main house, sharing a bathroom with a full shower, and there is a detached guest house with a bedroom and a bathroom. A hot tub, set in a large wood deck amidst a growth of cedars and oaks. Its location is programmed to provide its occupants with views of the entire property, including a view back at the house.
A climate-controlled tree house on reclaimed wood posts, and surrounds a Cedar tree trunk in the backyard.
Located off of Hamilton Pool Road in Bee Cave, 5204 Cueva is just a five-minute drive from the Hill Country Galleria with all its shops, dining options. 20 mins to downtown, ~30 to the airport.
