I think I’m coming down with seasonal affective disorder or something that is making my eyes itch at the very sight of Christmas lights. Needless to say, I needed something to refocus, something like a palate cleanser. Surfing for House Porn is the perfect answer!
And what do you know, I stumbled upon 4414 Lively Lane, an absolutely stunning Hill Country Contemporary (that’s a fancy term for a brand-new, vintage-inspired, Craftsman-like home with a stone facade) in Rockbrook Estates for just $2.15 million. If you could have heard me when I found this home, your eardrums would have shattered I squealed so loud. I just love everything about this house!
From the gorgeous hardwood floors to the incredible light fixtures (check out that art glass ceiling fixture in the foyer!) this home is amazing. The listing says the home, built in 2008, is inspired by the designs of legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright. I can see that, especially with all of the beautiful wood trim around the windows and the stone fireplace in the living area.
The floorplan is open, which makes all 6,277 square feet of this home flow effortlessly. There are five bedrooms, five and a half baths, three living areas, and a kitchen that was built for entertaining crowds.
There are two master suites — one on the first floor an another upstairs — and they are both just impeccable. I love how the owners have decorated with light, neutral colors that play off of the huge wood-trimmed windows.
The master bath has a very organic feel with different shades of stone and tile. I love the separate vanities that are on opposite walls — a key selling feature for anyone who isn’t a morning person (*raises hand*).
With all of that space inside, you’d think that there wouldn’t be any lot left for a decent-sized pool or a yard. Not so! This home has a wonderful loggia and cascading pool surrounded by a very private lawn. Gorgeous!
