Lake Travis Modern Italian Elegance
These out-of-town clients were seeking to create an Italian styled villa overlooking Lake Travis and to capture details reminiscent of their extensive travels in Italy. They engaged the nationally recognized team of luxury custom home builders at Zbranek & Holt Custom Homes in Austin to deliver their dream home. The significant slope from street level to the lake on their selected property necessitated an upside down design with walk-out basement that functions as the extensive game room/entertainment zone of the home integrated with an outstanding outdoor living space overlooking the lake. The expansive vista make for exceptional views from this property and the home was designed to capture the stunning views from every possible room. Great care was taken with the design to create a home that combines great function and flow given the size of the home as it relates to the building footprint.
Upon entering the home one is immediately drawn to the custom commissioned Swarovski crystal double helix chandelier spanning all three stories. The luxurious main living area affords an open concept formal living and dining area complete with privacy drapes installed for intimate dining. The gourmet chef’s kitchen features a hidden pantry accessible to the garage and dual refrigeration units with custom shelving in between the units. A fabulous butler’s pantry and wine room are inclusive of this kitchen space as well. The phenomenal lake views are present at every turn as well as a stunning master suite, guest rooms and more!
Zbranek & Holt Custom Homes’ attention to every meticulous detail of this home makes it exceptional. Every inch of this home is designed with the client in mind for elegant, easy living in this beautiful, natural setting. From unique touches such as the 3rd floor fire pole for children (with locking gate), the custom 475 gallon aquarium in the game room, to the richness of materials and the tremendous care and layout of selected materials combine to create a truly one-of-a-kind home for these delighted clients.
