Modern dwelling on a bluff overlooking Lake Travis

Villa Nuevo-Webber Studio-01-1 Kindesign

Villa Nuevo is contemporary glass walled home perched on a bluff overlooking Lake Travis in northwest Austin, Texas. The house was built in 2009 and designed by Austin-based Webber + Studio, Architects, who specialize in minimalist, contemporary style. The design is ecological: the house’s power, for example, is generated by rooftop solar panels; there’s also a rainwater collection system and solar heating for the pool. The main house has an open and airy layout, with 11-foot ceilings and walls of windows in the great room facing the lake. Most of the floors are bamboo; some are poured concrete. The kitchen is by Bulthaup, a German company known for its functional design.

Two of the main house’s bedrooms are currently used as offices. The master suite opens to a private outdoor hot tub. Tucked off the center hall is a library with built-in wood shelves. The 4,400 square foot house is primarily single-level, but there’s a sunken exercise room built into the property’s slope. Across a covered courtyard is a three-bedroom guesthouse, designed along the same lines as the main house. Between the main house and guesthouse is a covered, walled-in courtyard with a pool and a hot tub. A catwalk-like deck wraps around the main house, with a cantilevered sitting area. A private path leads to the lake and a boathouse. The 11-acre lot includes four acres of land; the remainder is underwater.
