Description

Near the city centers of Westlake and Austin, 1605 The High Road sits in an unincorporated area of Travis County, yet is only 7 miles from the Texas State Capitol and Austin's entertainment district. It is a unique piece of Central Texas land that is backed by a preserved area, with a view of a canyon supporting a variety of native plants and wildlife. 1605 The High Road is a treehouse. Walk into the middle level, look into the canopy of the trees. Go up to the top deck to see the open sky. Walk down into the lower level and sit in the forest. Watch the weather patterns change, the rain moving across the canyon and the weather fronts moving from southwest to northeast. Inside the house, there are multiple views also. In winter, build a fire and admire the lines, angles and circles intersecting each other. Pause at the upstairs landing and look into the living area to admire the design and structure. Sit at the kitchen counter and look into the rounded window wall into the oaks or at dusk, gaze upon the sunset. Which deck to choose today for coffee or cocktail? Do I want the sunset from the top, middle or the bottom deck? Each deck provides a different view: a forest view, an open view, a canyon view and the view to the stars and sky. The three decks attached to the house were in the original design. The owners added the 'forest' deck to hide the septic caps. Then they built the 'fire' deck when the outside firepit was added. And finally, a small 'observation' deck was built in the front near the rounded-office area to watch the wildlife and welcome company to the property.
