Seven Oaks Real Estate
Seven Oaks is a new luxury development of 153 homesites, some still under construction, up in the West Lake hills between the Colorado River and Barton Creek. Although it feels far removed from Austin’s urban bustle, it’s close to Bee Caves Road and not far from Loop 360 (Capitol of Texas Highway), putting downtown Austin 10 to 15 minutes away. Seven Oaks was designed for discerning homebuyers who prize both a quiet retreat in beautiful surroundings, and uncompromising quality and luxury.
Luxury Homes in Seven Oaks
With prices ranging from $750,000 to $3 million and up, homesites from one to six acres, and interior living spaces from 4000 to a tremendous 11,000 square feet, you would expect these to be extraordinary residences and grounds – and you’d be right. Buying a home in Seven Oaks gives you a rare opportunity to be the first owner of a state-of-the-art luxury estate in one of Austin’s most desirable neighborhoods. These are, in fact, among the most spectacular homes you’ll find in Greater Austin.
Start with the views: classic Hill Country, in the midst of natural habitat preserves and parks, with green and undulating hills to the horizon, with an abundance of mature live oaks and other native shade trees. There’s room to spare up in these hills: space to breathe, space to feel at home in the unspoiled natural environment, and finally, space to live life to its fullest – the way it ought to be lived.
The crafters of these homes (a Who’s Who of Central Texas custom home builders) know that everyone has different tastes, so there are many styles to choose from. You’ll find Tuscan-style villas, Mediterranean courtyard estates, and others inspired by Spanish, French and English architecture. Much care is taken to ensure the exteriors blend naturally into the landscape. Typical homes are set well back from the curb for added privacy and effect. Interiors are of showhouse quality, with professional interior designers putting forth their best efforts. Homes are fitted out with top-of-the-line construction materials. Spaciousness is the rule: you’ll find places for media rooms, large game rooms, wine rooms. Floors are of top-end stone like travertine marble, and rare hardwoods like maple and walnut. Kitchens range from gourmet up to professional chef standards, outfitted with highest-end appliance brands such as Viking. You’ll find top-quality designer finishes and a hundred little touches (some of which you may not even notice for months after moving in!). Balconies and wraparound porches are expansive, and the quality of the landscaping matches that of the interiors. And since these homes are new, they’re amply wired for 21st century electronics, telephony and all of today’s complex home-office requirements.
In short, no expense has been spared to create a custom-built Hill Country retreat. All details aside, these are homes that evoke timeless qualities and timeless emotions, including security, serenity and relaxation. These are homes designed and built with paramount importance given to the owners’ comfort, confidence and enjoyment.
Only the Best Schools
Residents’ children attend schools in the Eanes Independent School District, which is not only one of the best in Austin but considered among the best in Texas. Eanes schools have received many awards for both academic quality and athletic achievement. Schools include Valley View Elementary, West Ridge Middle School and Westlake High.
West Austin Living with Convenience to Lakes and Downtown
And did we mention “convenient location”? In addition to downtown, the recreational delights of Lake Travis are 10 minutes away. Great shopping in upscale malls like the Arboretum and Austin’s latest luxury shopping development, the Domain, is equally close at hand. Several parks (such as Emma Long Metropolitan Park) and nature preserves have miles of hike-and-bike trails for keeping fit, Central Texas style. Right in West Lake, recreational opportunities abound at places like the Barton Creek Resort & Spa and the Crenshaw Cliffside golf course, and the very family-friendly Lost Creek Country Club (offering golf, tennis and swimming).
