Modern new construction for sale in west Austin

Posted by Robert Griffice at February 08. 2007

I've got a 2020 sf 3bd/2ba new home for sale in the Bee Cave area.  The lot size is 14,000 sf and there is parking for 2 cars underneath the house.  The house is listed at $459,900 and is less than 500' from Lake Austin (including a voluntary community pool, park, and boat ramp...there are only 8 public access points to Lake Austin). 

Pictures are available at http://picasaweb.google.com/rgriffice .  The MLS listing number is 7709168; for more information contact Robert at rgriffice@gmail.com

The house has many green, energy-efficient, and low-maintenance features including:

Structural insulated panels for the roof system (provides an uninterrupted thermal plane for the roof)

  • Icynene spray-in insulation in the walls and floors
  • HVAC located inside the thermal envelope of the house to minimize thermal loss
  • High efficiency variable speed HVAC – 2 systems
  • Tankless on-demand Takagi water heater
  • Dual-flush (.8/1.6 gpf) Toto Aquia toilets
  • Duravit plumbing fixtures in master bath
  • Energy-Star stainless kitchen appliances: JennAir gas (propane) downdraft range, KitchenAid Architect-series refrigerator and dishwasher
  • Exterior siding is mix of low-maintenance materials: Hardiplank fiber cement (50 yr mfr warranty), painted galvanized steel (20-year mfr paint warranty), and galvalume steel corrugated panels.
  • Roof is long-lasting Galvalume corrugated steel (should outlast asphalt shingle roof by 2-3x)
  •  Windows are low-E insulated glass
  • Interior flooring is bamboo throughout house with cork-mosaic tile in bathrooms (grouted and sealed).
  • The 3 outdoor decks are long-lasting ipe hardwood with steel railing.
  • Solar panels and rainwater harvesting systems could easily be added to this house and the roof pitch and orientation is designed to optimize either type of system.
