1040 Polo Club Drive ~
This home sits on a private, heavily treed lot in the back of the Polo Club. It is a stunning Hill Country sanctuary in the gated equestrian community. Nestled among numerous oaks, the property feels like a nature preserve with an abundance of wildlife and privacy on 1.61 acres. It is a picturesque Hill Country escape! Set back from the street, a Texas-sized front porch greets you with plenty of room for your favorite rockers. This custom home is a wonderful blend of the Texas Hill Country Classic with touches of modern design. Metal pergolas and contemporary lighting accent the use of stone and wood.
When you walk through the front doors, you are greeted by the great room's soaring ceilings embellished with wooden trusses. Your eye is naturally drawn to the limestone fireplace. With oversized casement windows and doors, this room welcomes the sunlight and views of the grounds. Combined with the formal dining area, there is plenty of space to entertain family and friends.
Moving down the hall to your right, you'll find the office and a secondary bedroom, both with ensuite bathrooms and walk-in closets. The light-filled sunroom runs along the back of the home giving you access to the large flagstone patio at the rear of the home overlooking the gardens and walking paths throughout the back of the property. Off of the sunroom, you have yet another secondary bedroom with an attached bath and walk-in closet.
The master retreat is a wing unto itself off to the left of the great room. It's an oversized room with views to the front of the property through large casement windows. The master bath is finished with hardwood shaker-style cabinets. The large walk-in shower is equipped with numerous body sprays and shower-heads. Like everything else in this home, the master closet is large and well designed, with multiple levels of shelving and rods making good use of the space.
The kitchen looks like a photo out of Architectural Digest, both beautiful and functional, featuring Wolf and Sub Zero appliances and an easy flowing layout. Light and bright, done in hues of white with honed marble counters and tongue and groove wood ceilings. The natural light abounds in this space through a wall of glass sliders that lead to the flagstone patio.
Through the kitchen and in its own wing is a dedicated media room with stadium seating, projection TV, and surround sound. All equipment in this room conveys with the sale of this property. Finally, the laundry room being the new "must-have" for many, was not overlooked. It is large enough to double as a craft room and pantry and has more than enough cabinetry and ample counter space.
An oversized garage has plenty of room for cars and toys. Plus a whole house filtration system, water softener, and reverse osmosis under the kitchen sink. There is also a security system that includes four exterior cameras.
This gated community is one of Austin's best-kept secrets. One of the few neighborhoods in Austin that offers a pastoral setting with stocked ponds, a fee-for-service stable, and has close city amenities. It has an Austin address but is in the Dripping Springs School District and adjacent to AESA Prep-Academy. Close to shopping, dining, and entertainment at Belterra Village and just 7 miles away from Dripping Springs restaurants, wineries, and distilleries. Downtown Austin is a short 18-mile commute!
