1501 Hillmont is a unicorn of a property, on the top of the hill closest to downtown, in the Zilker neighborhood. With a huge 2000sq ft front yard, mature native landscaping, 40+ trees including two heritage live oaks, multiple views of downtown, and an infinity edge modern pool with hot tub, this is a literal lush retreat just steps from everything downtown has to offer. A 1/2 mile from the Town Lake Hike & Bike trail, 8/10 of a mile to Zilker Park, you can walk to Austin's best restaurants, entertainment, and all the food trucks on Barton Springs Road.

The house itself was named 'Austin's Healthiest Home' by the Austin American Statesman, and is a model of high quality craftsmanship. Built out of ICF blocks, the walls are breathable, non-toxic, fireproof, and capable of standing up to a 200mph straight line wind. The modern architecture, courtesy of award-winning Rice University architecture professor Gordon Wittenberg, brings in loads of natural light and highlights the downtown skyline and the large trees surrounding the property. With a 550 square foot mother-in-law suite, complete with full kitchen and bath, as well as a 160 square foot permanently attached tiny home (also compete with kitchen and bath), the property is perfectly set up for generating rental income (without sacrificing privacy, as both units have their own private entrance).
The house is partially wrapped in a reclaimed hardwood rainscreen, built from recycled Brazilian hardwood pallets, and the energy bills are supplemented by 55 solar panels on the roof. The property also has 5600 gallons of rainwater catchment, which can be used to water the spacious lawn in the summer. This house has copious amounts of privacy and is blessed to be on one of the only cul-de-sacs in the Zilker neighborhood, making traffic almost nonexistent. This space truly must be experienced in person to understand the uniqueness of the location and the tranquility of the space.
