This home is a masterpiece of effortless unity and understated elegance.
Resting on a large corner lot, this breathtaking modern design takes full advantage of the natural beauty of the Bouldin Creek neighborhood. Its floor-to-ceiling windows and complementary physical elements aim to lessen distinctions between indoor and outdoor spaces, blending these separate areas into a seamless living experience.
Like every Joseph home, the space was designed first and foremost to maximize function and livability. Our world-class architects are always focused on creating practical residences that feel as good as they look, and, as a result, the living areas were carefully arranged to promote convenience and comfort.
The entire second floor is dedicated to an enormous primary suite, complete with an oversized bathroom spa, walk-in closet, and balcony. This intimate enclave leads directly to the third-floor rooftop deck, which itself features incredible views of the downtown Austin area.
On the ground floor, the kitchen and living room sit clustered together to ensure easy movement and natural cohesion. There, the beautiful wall of windows provides a continual connection to the exterior, and the surrounding landscape was carefully cultivated to maximize this union.
In many places the brick accents meld directly into the outside paneling, further emphasizing this fusion of inside and out. No matter where you stand, the flow of energy invites you to turn your attention towards the pool and backyard, and this deliberate continuity is fundamental to the design and feel of the home.
Alongside those living spaces are the guest suite and two-car garage, which round out the rest of the lower area.
The Live Oak project also features several luxury amenities, including an elevator, brick fireplace, and intimate backyard pool. These important features help elevate the overall quality of the home, while providing practical, everyday value.
From a construction perspective, the project itself features a tasteful combination of high-quality glass, cedar, and brick — expertly employed to minimize unwanted distractions.
This synergy between design, material, and space is ultimately what makes the Live Oak so unique.
