There’s nary a week that passes, when, in some corner of the Lone Star State, an awe striking abode best described as an “oddity” graces the market. Enter 5312 North Scout Island Circle, a luxurious Austin domicile asking $4,500,000. A glimpse of the home’s crisp modern exterior and passersby are likely to assume the property is magnificently accoutered though predictably modern. It’s not -- well, at least not entirely.
Every room adheres to the conventions of the modern aesthetic (severe lines, sparse décor, muted colors, windows galore) except one -- the media room, which was designed to emulate an airplane cabin. Outfitted with cabin windows, overhead compartments and actual Delta aircraft seats, the room’s resemblance to a plane is incredible.
Other amenities of note include an hill country views, a large deck, hot tub and access to a boat dock.
“Award-winning architecture completed in 2010 after several years of thoughtful design,” the listing boasts. “A combination of elegant mid-century style with waterfront modern features & extraordinary quality. This home was constructed as two exterior wings connected by an interior courtyard, expertly situated in a way that shields the view of neighboring homes while maximizing the hillside scenery. Every detail is strategic, of the highest quality and contributes to the aura of sanctuary & tranquility. This residence is ready for an owner desiring the boating lifestyle with unique access to Lake Austin on a protected cove with an exclusive deeded boat dock + slip + boat.”
