Be still my heart! For the first time ever two Austin home builders, Mike Grimm and Gary Henley, are working together to build the first Southern Living Showcase House in Austin . The 4,400 square foot home in Lago Vista at Waterford on Lake Travis will be completed around the holidays, 2012.
The home will be open to the public for several weeks in February 2013. After that the home will be on the market for $1.5 million. According to Mike Grimm, co-builder, the house will be worth between $1.8 and $2 million, because of upgrades by local vendors.
Expect to be wowed! If you have never walked through a Southern Living Showcase House then you are in for a real treat, besides being really, really spacious, these homes are filled with all kinds of beautiful artistic work. You will find an unending supply of ideas, including the use of paint, colors, fabric, finishes and one of a kind details. It is exciting that vendors and artisans from the Austin area will get to showcase their work.
The Austin showcase home features wood beams, limestone rock and panoramic windows that create a strong sense of the outdoors.
There is hope that the home draws about 15,000 people during the February 8-24, 2013 open house. The proceeds from the home tour will benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Austin and Operation Finally Home. See you in there….
