2401 Portofino…the Property
Located on the most private and prestigious street in Barton Creek — and situated on 5 lots totaling 4.04 acres overlooking the #6 green — this unique home is truly one of Austin's finest residences. With its rolling Texas Hill Country landscape, cavernous blue skies, top-ranked schools, and “best golf resort in the Southwest," as Golf Magazine puts it, the gated Barton Creek community is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Austin, Texas.
Designed by renowned architect David Shiflet and brought to life by the unequivocal builder Gary Reissig, 2401 Portofino Ridge, exudes splendor and prestige. Situated just 20 minutes away from downtown, this suburban utopia is a treasured escape from the hustle and bustle of "Silicon Hills" and the Music Capital of the World, yet incredibly convenient to the area’s most frequented venues, top-rated restaurants, surrounding lakes and golf courses.
From the moment you drive up to this 16,722-square-foot Provincial masterpiece, you are taken by the lush landscaping, towering solid copper domes, custom Zeluck mahogany lancet style windows and top-of-the-line slate tile roof. Step inside the home and the awe continues with an open floor plan marked with glowing hand glazed venetian plaster walls, wide-plank European white oak hardwood floors, one-of-a-kind European light fixtures, and seven hand carved limestone fireplaces. The dramatic Lueders stone tower foreshadows an elegant ascension to the private and well-appointed secondary bedrooms.
The chef’s kitchen features an oversized marble island, custom cabinetry, and a La Cornue range and rotisserie—while opening up to the living room creating an inviting and comfortable space for family and friends to gather around. Entertain like no other with a full separate catering kitchen and wet bar perfect for serving up culinary delights and cocktails, while the expansive 1500-bottle wine cellar ensures your wine collection will never runneth dry.
In addition to seven bedrooms, the main home has a lavish sitting room, a light-filled library, office, a large game room, an elevator, and a commercial grade generator. The master bedroom promotes a sense of tranquility with its arched windows, spa-like bathroom, and grand dual walk-in closets.
Guests can enjoy their stay in a private 2-bedroom apartment appointed with a full kitchen, living area, full bathroom, and private garage.
As for the exterior allure, the multiple terraces and negative-edge swimming pool and spa take advantage of the home’s spectacular 4.04-acre landscape, expansive golf course, and hill country views. The lush, outdoor grounds are irrigated by the private water well. The property also features a breathtaking and original French-style formal garden – with a Texas twist – and multiple raised organic beds with an automated irrigation system.
Auto aficionados will appreciate the attached 2 story 4-car garage bay with lift and tailor-made, detached carriage house which boasts space for 8 + additional cars among other toys.This is a true opportunity for a very special buyer as homes like these in Austin rarely become available for purchase.
