Atop a hill overlooking Wren Valley and 227 acres of Wild Basin Preserve, 1100 Red Bud is a truly one-of-a-kind opportunity. This exclusive and desirable flat lot, with views of protected preserve vistas measuring 1.44 acres, captivates with generous amounts of space for landscaping, building and sheer enjoyment at every turn. With more than an acre of flat grounds, this prized lot with a dark skies ordinance in effect celebrates a balance of natural privacy, serenity, luxury, and elegance. Towering mature oaks, soaring vistas, and the current 200 ft setback footprint offer the ultimate experience in Westlake living. Over the past two years, plans to build the perfect residential retreat have been thoughtfully designed, and they are now soon to be fully permitted. These valuable plans can be implemented by interested parties.
The gated home with access off Kennan Road offers entry from a singular corner, allowing a thrilling reveal as you meander down one of the many enchanted tree lined pathways. Dominating this lush lot are more than 80 majestic, medium and large oak trees, most with multiple stems. A staggering 400 trees and shrubs mostly cleared of cedar envelope the excellent yard and build space. Redbud trees and mountain laurels enchant with their profusion of rosy pink and pale purple flowers, changing throughout the seasons, offering a resilient yet picturesque addition to the landscape and stellar Wild Basin Preserve views. Perfectly situated just 10 minutes from downtown and 4.5 minutes to Lake Austin Boulevard, 1100 Redbud has proximity to the hiking trails at the Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve, Westlake Shopping, and it is zoned to the award-winning Eanes School district.
Prospective Build and Opportunities
The current owners have worked with A Parallel, one of Austin’s premiere modern architects, to create a thoughtful 6,190 sq ft footprint that elegantly engages with mixed materials, floor to ceiling windows, warm neutral tones and elements. The stunning design plans bring the outdoors inside, welcoming natural light to play upon different textures and profiles. This creates a fluidity and minimalism that is calming yet gracious. A Parallel’s vetted builder, Enve Builders with David Barton as principal, had been engaged to complete this project. The current owners have spent at over $300,000 worth in designs and planning alone. With the final design for a low profile, Neo Mid-Century Modern already completed, and the permitting in process, the fortunate new resident can take over the plans and begin build-out immediately or go a completely different direction at their leisure.
The opportunities for this property are the following: Customizing the current 1950's home with 4beds and 3.1baths to your liking, using the design AParallel has created with the sellers to build out with Enve or the builder of your choice, or starting something entirely different with a spectacular amply flat lot with stellar trees.
History of Property
The current home is a 3,367 sq ft 4bed/3.1bath built in 1957, with remodels in 1997 and in early 2010's. Based on the oral history collected, this property was once owned by Kent Kennan, an American Composer and University of Texas at Austin music professor and writer of two noteworthy textbooks: Counterpoint and The Technique of Orchestration, both of which have been widely used for over 50 years in collegiate settings. Mr Kennan’s brother, the esteemed George F Kennan, still considered today one of the greatest foreign policy advisors of all time, visited at times as well. It has been said that the cross street, Kennan Road, is named after Kent Kennan himself. Anecdotal evidence has revealed that some of the bricks for the current residence were originally from UT at Austin campus. Pricing is for the lot. Cost to build is not included in the list price.
