A prominent Austin tech executive is selling his five-bedroom home, a luxury property that’s being billed as “one of the most gorgeous estates in West Lake Hills.”
Tom Hogan, former CEO of Vignette, is now chairman and CEO at Kony Inc. in Austin. His 10,345-square-foot house at 4501 Mantle Drive is on the market for $5.72 million. Anna Lee, a real estate agent with Moreland Properties, has the listing.
The house, designed by Jim LaRue, is on a 2.5-acre gated lot. The main level includes the owner’s suite; a living room with a stone fireplace; a private study with a library; a dining room; a large kitchen with a breakfast table that overlooks a resort-style pool; a family room with a freshwater fish tank and a second bedroom. The house has six and a half baths and a four-car garage.
All other bedrooms are on the second floor, along with a home theater, upstairs laundry room, game room and a computer- and gift-wrapping station.
The house also has a gym, dry sauna, cedar closet and a separate wine cellar and cigar-smoking room. Many of the home’s features -- including thermostat, music, and lighting -- can be controlled by iPads.
Outside, the pool is surrounded by a kitchen and an extensive veranda. Passing under the arched porte cochère is an attached 3-car garage, as well as a single- car garage with storage room.
Hogan, who began his career at IBM in 1982, is a well known in Austin’s technology community.
Prior to heading up Kony, which sells a mobile app development platform, Hogan was executive vice president of CSC. He also was executive vice president of sales and marketing for HP’s $57 billion Enterprise Business in 2010.
From 2006 to 2009, Hogan was executive vice president of HP Software. Prior to HP, Hogan was CEO of Vignette and senior vice president of sales at Siebel Systems.
Hogan and his wife bought the house in 2002, and are listing it after becoming empty nesters. They said they are downsizing and considering moving to downtown Austin.
