Luxury Home Magazine of Austin spotlights this magnificently appointed home that marks a wondrous example of the Beaux Arts architectural tradition so popular in America from the 1880s to the 1920s. An eclectic genre of late Neoclassicism, Beaux Arts incorporates both Greek and Roman models in combination with Renaissance forms. The result here, a home connoting old-world luxury and detail while remaining eminently livable. The home’s facade hand-carved limestone shipped by rail from Mexico and assembled on site. One immediately recognizes the Beaux Arts Classicism in the exterior work, including the garlands, acanthus leaves and floral swags abundant in the capitals of the Corinthian columns and window friezes, as well as in the wonderful fountain and its hanging stone curtains. The Corinthian columns lend classical indulgence to the portico entry and covered terraces to either side. Entering through to the main foyer, the eye is immediately drawn to the groined vault ceiling, featuring an extensive detailing in small squares of 18-karat gold leaf, expansive rooms, and much more.
