Downtown – The Austonian
200 Congress Avenue, Unit 50T, Austin, TX 78701 | $6,995,000

Now available, one of the most luxuriously-outfitted units in The Austonian – 50T. While every unit at this desirable address is remarkable, this space aspires to a world-class level of design. Beautifully laid-out for entertaining, you can host a crowd in the spacious living room, dining/wine room/bar, media room and on the three terraces surveying an almost 360-degree view.

Every space and surface is considered, reflecting a year-long project inspired by the owners’ global travels. Beginning with the foundational elements, the designers selected French-oak and Italian Travertine floors then contrasted them with hand-applied Venetian plaster walls, accented with wood-veneer paneling and hand-painted wall-coverings.

Jewels are found abundantly throughout the home, but at the center a kitchen features a beautiful royal-blue French La Canache range with a custom polished brass range-hood, complimented by professional appliances of Miele and Subzero. Metal, glass, and catelized tall lacquered cabinets perfectly conjoin with Quartzite counter-tops. A Butlers pantry and pass -through hidden prepping space sit behind the kitchen.

Details throughout are remarkably captivating with White-Oak veneer and bronze custom portals, 10″ recessed wood basing, custom art lighting, french oak wood floors, and Sonance full-home automated control systems. A captivating formal dining/wine room transport you into an art masterpiece with end grain french oak wood floor, dark veneer paneling, a petrified wood slab at the wet bar, and a floor-to-ceiling wall of steel and glass for over 450 bottles of wine storage.

The Master suite is spacious enough to be its own home with a large balcony that overlooks Lady Bird Lake. Two separate baths create individual retreats. HIS bathroom includes a zen-like setting with a burnt-sienna colored marble wall, a steel and glass shower, Italian stone floors and a large walk-through closet. HER bathroom is finished with clean spaces of rare Italian Marble slabs, floors and mosaics in the shower. A gown closet is showcased across from a beautiful vanity setting with views of the lake and floor-to-ceiling mirrors finish the space. A pass-through office space connects HER bath and to the entrance of HER full closet, complete with a closet island and a rolling ladder for convenient access. The guest bedroom features exquisite woven and hand-printed wall-papers and stylish hand-made ceramic tiles in the bathroom. An additional flex office/bedroom and bath finish off the eastern guest wing.

The interior had to be spectacular to compete with the views. High on the 50th floor, floor-to-ceiling windows open out over vistas that sweep past the Frost Tower, UT and Lady Bird Lake. Located just steps from the Town Lake Trail, new Central Library, the Austin City Limits Theater and dozens of acclaimed restaurants, The Austonian is truly at the center of the action.

Renowned for its amenities, the tower provides for luxuries like a broad 10th-floor lounging lawn with salt-water pool, spa, cabanas plus kitchen and entertaining areas. Additional common areas include a fitness center, dog park and grooming room, theater, conference room, cozy library and wine cellar.
