Uniquely tucked away, this private home is beautifully situated in the hills of the desirable West Lake Hills community. A winding pathway leads you through a screen of native landscaping to reveal a charming and elegant retreat. This traditional home, custom built in the French country style, is in perfect balance with the lovingly tended gardens that surround it.
This unique home was comprehensively renovated in 2020 and has a depth of architectural detail including a century-old front door sourced from France, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and solid oak plank floors. The main floor of this refined home features a formal living and dining area and an open concept living space with a renovated kitchen, casual dining area, and inviting family room. The main level also includes a well appointed primary suite with a marble accented bathroom and access to a private outdoor shower. A secondary bedroom or office plus bathroom complete the main level. The second floor includes two additional bedrooms (each with their own vanity), a shared bathroom, a sitting room and an intimate screened porch. A few of the many recent updates include a Cedur shake roof (50 year warranty and extreme fire resistance), climate controlled greenhouse, upgraded electrical panel, new Kolbe windows with “vanishing” screens and a comprehensive irrigation system.
The architecture allows for a seamless flow between indoor and out, and creates a variety of exterior courtyards, patios and living areas that are ideal sanctuary-spaces for relaxing and entertaining. The outdoor entertaining area includes a serene koi pond and a custom built pool with designer tile accents and a stainless steel hot tub with therapeutic jets. The 2020 pool and hot tub additions both operate with app based smart home technology. This one acre property is a reflection of the owners dedicated stewardship, honoring the unique beauty of the land through thoughtful and balanced landscape design.
1801 Yaupon Valley Road offers a unique composition of fine craftsmanship, exacting attention to detail and liveability in a beautiful West Lake Hills setting.
