Masterpiece In The Hills

Price Upon Request 3500 Bunny Run , Austin, TX 78746

Lavish Estate - Designed by the esteemed Charles Travis of Chas Architects

3500 Bunny Run is not an attempt to chase trends or embrace fleeting fads. It stands as a testament to the enduring allure of timeless design and meticulous craftsmanship – an achievement seldom found in today's world of mass-production. Designed by the esteemed Charles Travis of Chas Architects, this residence is a true masterpiece, curated for the most discerning tastes.

As you approach this estate, you are greeted by the grandeur of large front doors reclaimed from a Mexican church, a fitting prelude to the opulence that lies within. A stone’s throw from the foyer awaits a breathtaking courtyard, serving as the vibrant heart of the residence. Here, a captivating water feature meanders through the space, infusing life and ambiance into the very core of the home.

Step inside to discover a sanctuary where every detail tells a story – imported Portuguese brick, intricate hand-made Moroccan tile, and hand-scraped Brazilian hardwood floors, installed by a singular artisan, radiate pride and quality rarely encountered in modern work.

Artistic elements continue to permeate the home with unique character, highlighted by four 'Falling from Grace' sculptures in the great room. Made in Rodrigo Lara’s studio in Mexico, shipped unassembled in large crates, and later installed by the artist himself, these figures are a captivating conversation-starter. As you walk through various rooms, you will also come across bespoke furnishings by Jason Scott made from reclaimed Javanese teak, with one special piece taking thirteen months from production in Java to final arrival in Texas. Notice that even the walls have a custom natural clay plaster finish with subtle specks of quartz glimmering throughout.

The kitchen showcases a hand-hammered copper sink, granite countertops, and high-end appliances: a Subzero freezer and refrigerator, two Thermador dishwashers and ovens, and additional cooling units. The outdoor kitchen, equipped with a Wolf range, Viking BBQ grill, and Kamado grill, beckons for al fresco dining and entertaining.

An expansive outdoor oasis can be enjoyed year-round. Indulge in paradise beneath the grape arbor, savoring a glass of wine from the climate-controlled 350-bottle wine cellar, or relax by an exterior fireplace, one of which mimics the shape of a seashell.

The intentional landscaping, designed by Root Design Company and now star of HGTV “Building Roots,” is teeming with diverse vegetation – Medjool date palms, cared for by a dedicated expert, along with olive, lime, tangerine, and other fruit trees, create a tranquil retreat reminiscent of a Mediterranean dream.

With views of the luscious backyard, the primary bedroom is palatial with a spacious seating area, fireplace, marble ensuite, and walk-in closet. This magnificent five bedroom/eight bath estate additionally consists of a formal dining room, gameroom, library, home office, and ample flex space for a gym and storage.

Modern conveniences abound with two universal EV chargers, new Sonos surround sound, and a sophisticated home automation system, offering seamless control over security, lighting, and gate access through your smartphone. Energy efficiency is equally paramount with recently installed Carrier Infinity HVAC units and Navien Energy Star tankless water heaters.

3500 Bunny Run is a masterpiece collection of the highest quality materials, selected and crafted by talented artisans, architects, and builders alike. Every aspect of this estate speaks to the discerning homeowner who seeks the pinnacle of luxury living.
