Luxury real estate is booming in Texas, meaning no matter what you see in your dream home, you can likely find it right here in the Hill Country.

Whether it’s a movie theater, recording space, wine sanctuary, dumbwaiter kitchen, rain shower, large lot for landscaping, outdoor kitchen or sunroom you’re after, you can find it in at least one of these listings.

The houses, held by Compass agents, are located all over the Austin area and are on the market now.

164 Heritage Hollow Cove | $1,220,000

Dubbed “The Wine Lover’s House” for good reason, this Dripping Springs Hill Country home has a wine room that holds up to 1,700 bottles. With light cabinetry, wood floors that welcome in light, an open-plan kitchen, a rain shower in the master bathroom and maximized vertical space, the home is an indoor dream. However, possibly the best feature of the home is its screened-in sunroom, inviting for afternoon tea, with an outdoor kitchen and grill just a few steps away. A rare 3,242 square foot one-story find, the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom home has a split three-car garage and is just 20 minutes from Bee Cave.

7512 Doswell Lane | $1,790,000

​Located in South Austin’s Circle C neighborhood, this five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom home is an enormous 5,153 square feet. The house was built in 2003 but has a newly-updated kitchen, recessed lighting and new roof as of this year. Massive windows on the ground floor of the house keep it lit with plenty of natural light, plus the home comes with upscale features like the movie theater and outdoor hot tub patio.

130 Burgess Lane | $2,199,900

​Unassuming on the outside, this West Austin home in the Ridge at Alta Vista neighborhood is full of surprises. At a huge 7,505 square feet with five bedrooms, each with their own walk-in closet, and five-and-a-half bathrooms, the home is spread across three floors and was renovated in 2017. The ideal home for an entertainer, two chefs kitchens connected by a dumbwaiter will allow you to create your culinary masterpiece. With a movie theater and a soundproof recording studio, this home is perfect for the up-and-coming podcaster. This home is also on a half-acre of land!
