It’s hard to say which will capture a visitor’s attention more—the impressive views or the home itself, an architectural masterpiece that seems to emerge from, rather than interrupt, the surrounding hills.
Nestled just west of downtown, Ledgeway’s limestone walls and modern interior exude the epitome of hill country living. The home was first built in 1957 and has experienced expansions that have carefully improved upon the original structure by joining both old and new spaces. With every attention to detail and outstanding design, additions include an enclosed glass bridge that links a new bedroom wing to the main structure. Other additions consist of a new kitchen and separate living area, music room, and a media and entertainment space.
Expansive mahogany windows are carefully placed throughout the home so that nearly every room is flooded with sunlight and scenery of the surrounding hills. The overall affect is one that seems to blur the line between interior and exterior.
Future homeowners will enjoy many of the home’s exterior features, including a pool and calming water fountain that serves as a private oasis. Sitting adjacent to the pool resides an outdoor room with fireplace, dry sauna, and barbecue area with views of the perennial garden. The landscape is both low maintenance and beautiful, and incorporates native plants designed to draw in butterflies during seasonal blooms.
The home has easy access to downtown and is less than three miles from Eanes Elementary, Hill Country Middle School and Westlake High School. The ideal location and masterfully crafted Ledgeway House will provide years of comfort for the modern homeowners living in the hills.
