An estate-like enclave on a large lot, almost an acre in size, which is rare for central Austin, has hit the market for $5.5 million. Rebekah Gainsley, the seller, is a sought-after interior designer who intentionally considered every detail. The property’s enormous heritage trees make it feel like a home in the forest – it’s very special.
The property includes a single-level main house, guest house, and a picturesque pool. It was immaculately reimagined by RGainsley Interior Design and Laura Roberts Design with landscape architecture by Studio Balcones. Every feature in and outside the home is unique and thoughtful. Floor-to-ceiling windows and Fleetwood sliding doors across all spaces frame the grounds’ lush greenery and heritage trees.
All spaces are well-suited for displaying an owner’s collection, equipped with art lighting, well-balanced natural light, and neutral wood floors accented with custom furniture throughout.
The sophisticated centrally located kitchen is outfitted with a Bertazzoni 6-burner range, spacious stone island with bar seating overlooking the rear wood deck, and more. The private primary bedroom oversees the grounds from high among the trees. Steps away from the main house is a climate-controlled 2-car garage with a full bath and side steps up to the guest quarters, also with full bath.
Other features include a spacious guest room, a private and en-suite third bedroom with a wet bar and refrigerator, a complete custom audio system, full home security, an automated entry gate, an in-ground trampoline, and more.
The estate-like enclave 5500 Shoal Creek Blvd is listed by Douglas Elliman Realty licensed associate Michael Reisor.
