A spectacular celebration of form, function, and fun, 145 Estancia Lane is the premier southern Hill Country estate. It’s much more than a house though: It’s a legacy, a destination, and an escape. It’s the stage where precious memories of a life well-lived play out on a daily basis.
With 360-degree views deep into the glorious Texas Hill Country, you are constantly aware of the jaw-dropping beauty of nature. Sited on 13.22 acres, perched at an elevation of 2,000 feet, cooling breezes and fiery sunsets are your constant companions.
Inside, the question arises…Did the owners think of everything? Let’s just say they went above and beyond. With a perfect blend of private and casual spaces, the floor plan affords countless opportunities for entertaining on a grand scale or for simply enjoying the quiet solitude. Top-of-class materials and intricate details - the ceilings are a work of art - show the craftsmanship and thought that went into the home.
The home lives like a one-story home as approximately 7,000 of the 8,100 sq. ft of heated and cooled living space is on the first floor. Each room has a purpose and flows sensibly into the next space.
The kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances from Wolf including double ovens and a gas cooktop, a SubZero, and double dishwashers. When the chef wants to show off his culinary capabilities to an attentive audience, there are multiple seating spaces around the two Islands. You will not believe the huge walk-in pantry which features a handsome glass and wood door, counter, and bookshelf space plus an additional SubZero refrigerator.
Off the kitchen, there is a spacious but cozy breakfast room plus a grand family room with a fireplace and awesome views. Continuing on you find the massive game room with room for a pool table, card table, video games, table shuffleboard or whatever your competition of choice happens to be. Plus, there is an ample wet bar with a sink, refrigerator, and ice maker. It features pass-through windows for easy service to the covered patio next to the pool area. Keep those margaritas flowing! Plus, there is a high-end elevator for easy access to the second floor.
Off of the game room there is an excellent flexible space with a drop down screen and projector when you want that media room-theater experience. When the screen isn’t in use, it electronically comes up to reveal a sizable window with yet another jaw-dropping Hill Country view. It’s the perfect playroom.
On the opposite side of the home, enjoy wine storage that is a true one-of-a-kind conversation starter. It reminds of modern sculpture, with twin panes of curved glass acting as walls plus an iron door. Directly across from the wine storage, find one of two beautiful wet bars in the home. This is the more elegant of the two as it is adjacent to the formal dining room. With two large granite countertops, a sink, warming drawer, and ice maker, this is the perfect staging area. oversized master bedroom closets with built ins and every bedroom in the house has its own bathroom, large closets w/built ins.
