Scout Island Residence is an award-winning architectural masterpiece by alterstudio. Thoughtfully designed for both entertaining and day-to-day comfort, this home is defined by exquisite details & extraordinary quality. Seamless integration between space and nature mirrors the home’s subtle but distinguished presence within a close-knit community tucked in Austin’s northwest hills. In close proximity to major thoroughfares and nearby conveniences, this tranquil neighborhood offers unique access to Lake Austin, protected cove, boat docks, nature trails and waterfront park. Live a simplified lifestyle in your own private sanctuary.
One of our all-time architectural favorites, this residence is warm and inviting. It presents a sense of “suspension”, both literally and figuratively. One is treated with deliberate “surprises”, as one casually strolls through the home. Strategically-placed windows offer beautifully-framed views of the home’s tranquil surroundings. Glass seamlessly integrates nature with the interior space. The owners embrace minimalist interiors with a calming palette, punctuated by the warm accent of custom wood paneling. Window walls, at the rear of the home, offer treetop views, as if one were suspended in nature.
Harmonious balance of water, wood, metal & earth. The “life of the house” is directed inwards - a center courtyard framed by the two parallel wings that extend out into the hills.
Waterfront off Lake Austin
Hassle-free boat ownership with exclusive deeded boat slip. Boat to County Line BBQ & Austin Country Club.
Symmetry at Dusk
A transparent corridor, at the entryway, appears to be floating over a pair of reflecting pools. Welcoming symmetry draws the eyes toward this glass-encased “bridge”, the centerpiece that connects two “wings” of the residence.
