Two days before Valentine’s Day, Casa Santuario in tony Tarrytown, Austin will be offered without reserve by Concierge Auctions. Originally offered for $15 million, the secluded Spanish mission–style home will be auctioned to the highest bidder in cooperation with Jeannette Spinelli of Austin Portfolio Real Estate and Kyle Crews of Allie Beth Allman & Associates, an exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate. Magnificent 9,729-square-foot home is surrounded by towering live oaks, flowering olive trees and gorgeous views of Lake Austin. Built in 2003 and designed by renowned architect Paul Lamb, the home with five bedrooms, five full and three half bathrooms is divided into public spaces for entertaining and private spaces for family living.
The home opens into a cozy sitting area and bar, where low double-barrel ceilings magnify the thickness of the plaster walls and accentuate the openness of the soaring, light-filled living room and the airy veranda just outside. The dining room mirrors the double-barrel ceiling in the sitting area. The room is flanked by two walls of windows — one looking onto the courtyard, the other with full views of the back acreage, with its rolling lawn and a stone fence before it hits a thicket of natural Texas vegetation. The bedrooms continue the home’s refined elegance and approachable space.
“The design and construction of Casa Santuario is superb. From the solid wood matched oval topped doors to the three-step plaster walls, this home evokes the true character of a Spanish colonial estate from a bygone era, yet has all the conveniences of modern technology,” stated Crews. “The location, the views and the privacy afford the new owners a one-of-a-kind purchase opportunity — just minutes from all that makes Austin, Texas one of the most desirable cities in the country.”
The auction of Casa Santuario in Austin, Texas, will be held live on February 12th. The property will be open for preview daily from 1-4pm and by appointment. See Auction Terms and Conditions for full details.
