We Love-Love This House
On the heels of former pro cyclist Lance Armstrong downsizing from a mansion to a more modest home in Austin, retired tennis pro Andy Roddick and his wife, actress and model Brooklyn Decker, are doing the same thing.
Roddick and Decker’s 7,367-square-foot West Austin estate, which sits on 15 prime acres with stunning views of the Texas Hill Country, is on the market for $5.95 million. Jonathan Creath of Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty is marketing the property for the celebrity duo.
There’s no word on precisely where Roddick, Decker, and their two children — son Hank and daughter Stevie — live now. But Creath tells the Austin Business Journal that their new, slightly smaller digs are somewhere in Austin.
Features of their former home in Austin include:
- Five bedrooms
- Six-and-a-half bathrooms
- Redesigned kitchen with six-burner Wolf range
- Newly built wine cellar
- Swimming pool
- Office with wood-burning fireplace
- Recently added owner’s “hideaway”
- One-third-of-a-mile road leading to estate
- Reclaimed pine floors
- Wood beams reclaimed from Chicago Stock Exchange
The Angelwylde Drive home, designed by Webber + Studio, Architects and custom-built in 2003 by Don Crowell, is south of Bee Cave Road and east of Barton Creek Elementary School.
In 2017, Decker told People magazine that the heart of this home is the kitchen, which was renovated to add marble countertops and wood cabinets.
“We are people who live in our kitchen,” she said. “It’s where we eat our meals, have our conversations, drink wine.” She added: “I splurged on the marble … and I splurged on the brass sink.”
Earlier this year, Roddick and Decker sold their four-bedroom mountain retreat in North Carolina for $2.35 million, according to WWD.com. Back in 2015, they sold their five-bedroom home in Los Angeles for nearly $3.34 million, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Perhaps some of that money went toward the couple’s recent investment in the Austin-based Tiff’s Treats cookie chain.
