Westlake Hideaway

Austin, TX

This impressive property is sited on 4 acres atop a beautiful, secluded cove in Westlake. David Shiflet, the original architect, built the house in 1992 and teamed up in 2013 with Mark Ashby Design and Dalgleish Construction Company to undergo an extensive 2-year remodel. A true collaboration, the Mark Ashby Design team was integral in every aspect – from architectural details and materials to furniture selections – to achieve a look that represents the client’s keen sense of modern minimalism.

From the client: Working with Mark Ashby Design on our long-distance, extensive remodel helped make the process stress-free and we are thrilled with the result. Our ideas, vision, and preferences were always the top priority and our design team used this information, along with their expertise, to pull our dream home together. It turned out better than we could have imagined…or could have accomplished on our own!
