SOLD! – Welcome home to this wonderful home in Shady Hollow West that backs to green space and features a gorgeous, low maintenance, native wildflower garden and certified Texas wildlife habitat that is perfect for bird and butterfly watching. Built in 2000 by David Weekley Homes, this South facing home features 4 bedrooms (with the master suite on the main level), 3.5 bathrooms with approximately 3,349 s/f (per Appraiser) of living space along with a covered porch in front and a relaxing screened porch and upper deck balcony in the back overlooking the scenic wildflower/wildlife garden and the green space/water quality protection land adjoining the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.
Among the many benefits of the main living areas, you’ll find a wide open floor plan with high ceilings, bamboo flooring, open spaces, and plenty of natural light. The spacious living area features high ceilings, a gas starter fireplace, built in hutch, ceiling fan and a wall of windows overlooking the back yard wildflower garden.

The spacious master suite, located on the main level, features a wall of windows overlooking the wildflower garden and green space along with a large private bath features dual vanities, a garden tub, separate shower and a very large custom closet along with a “bonus” room off the closet area that would be perfect for a treadmill, cycling trainer, yoga, meditation or general workout room. The upper level features three spacious bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a bonus living area with built in floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and access to the upper deck balcony – the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the peaceful views of the garden and green space.
The back yard is absolutely wonderful, and it’s a perfect relaxing escape for bird, butterfly and nature watching from within the home or outside on the patios and walkways. The yard is a certified wildlife habitat and native wildflower garden, so it attracts a multitude of birds, butterflies and more for relaxing nature watching. Not only is the back yard beautiful, but it is also low maintenance as it was designed specifically for the Central Texas climate. No chemicals, fertilizer, sprays or power tools needed to tend to this garden; just let the birds, butterflies, bees and Mother Nature take care of it for you. The garden has been featured on KLRU’s Central Texas Gardener program, and was showcased on the 2010 Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center Garden Tour (only five area gardens chosen per year).
Some of the unique features of the home include a tankless water heater system, UV coating on the windows to reduce UV light and heat transmission, gorgeous limestone back porch, recycled plastic planks and railings on the upper deck balcony, corn-based polymer carpeting in the master suite, recent stainless dishwasher installed, multiple attic storage areas, alarm system installed, and more.
Great location within Shady Hollow West with easy access to major roads and shopping along with close proximity Bailey Middle School and the other Shady Hollow Community Amenities including the community pool, sport courts and walking trails.
This home is served by the Austin ISD Schools: Baranoff Elementary, Bailey Middle School and Bowie High School.
This is a MUST SEE in Shady Hollow!
