PEDIGREE: Designed by Manhattan architect Richard Gluckman, this sleek contemporary residence was built in 2003 for a former Dell executive. The split-level home features a front façade of textured Texas Lueders limestone, while the interiors combine materials such as mahogany, blackened steel, glass, and concrete for a sophisticated yet understated effect.
PROPERTY VALUES: Perched on a bluff overlooking Lake Austin, the one-acre plot has a lap pool, multiple gardens, and a reflecting pond; a generous terrace off the master bedroom affords sweeping views that reach to the city’s center.
TALKING POINT: The top floor features a private master retreat, and the garages are accessed via a staircase decorated with a 16-by-20-foot abstract wall painting by British artist Richard Wright.
