The glorious month of May is right around the corner, which means Cinco de Mayo is just days away! Which for us at AOL Real Estate means getting drunk … on gorgeous homes like this $6.2 million Mediterranean-style hacienda.
Villa Ascosa, located in Austin, Texas, is built on one of the city’s highest hills, offering endless views over Austin’s hill country. The villa’s rare setting boasts 4.5 acres of land, an assortment of fruit trees and abundant wild greenery. Its architecture is an homage to traditional, earthy beauty and new green technologies. To maximize energy efficiency, for example, the walls were built from 12-inch-thick aerated concrete blocks.
Inside, you’ll find sprawling spaces, soaring, wood-beamed ceilings, ornate curved staircases and gorgeous, terracotta-tile floors and mosaic walls. (Check out that wine cellar!)
