Mosaic tile, ceiling beams and a built-in vanity area are among the custom touches in this Tuscan-inspired master bathroom in Austin. An arched opening leads to a tiled tub. The room is spacious enough for a tall, freestanding cabinet that provides extra storage.

This kitchen has a warm wall color, chosen to complement the Tuscan, Old World decor theme. A tumbled-marble backsplash provides contrast against the dark, distressed cabinetry and granite countertops.
A cedar pergola creates a shaded spot on the travertine patio and leads to a beautiful outdoor fireplace for gathering on cool nights. Travertine is also used around the spa, while an all-natural veneer and wall stone helps define the outdoor space.
With a gated entry and cobblestone drive, this 10,000-square-foot custom home is loaded with luxuries.
