of Lake Austin Waterfront
This warm modern farmhouse retreat on Lake Austin is the epitome of graceful luxury lake living. With character, texture, and architectural detail on display in every room and passageway, this 5 bedroom/4.5 bathroom captures the best of architect Sarah Bullock McIntyre and builder Koch Construction. The house is situated on an expansive, flat grassy lawn with over 200 feet of usable waterfront and a beach area for play, swimming, or launching small watercraft. A recently built two-slip boat dock with lifts and covered party deck serves as a coveted outdoor living space right over the water. And from inside the impressive home, no matter where you look, every space celebrates the beautiful lake views and stately, heritage pecan trees that frame this remarkable property.
The inviting great room features heavy timber trusses that were once the structural members in a barn in Wisconsin. Flanked by an equally charming and spacious gourmet kitchen, both areas open directly onto a screened-in porch, maximizing the accessibility and tranquility of the lake. It is truly an ideal place for both entertaining a crowd or hosting intimate gatherings of friends and family—all while enjoying the beauty of the home’s exclusive setting.
The first-floor master wing features an exquisitely handcrafted library where the original roof beams have found new life on walls and custom bookcases. A cozy master bedroom has a wall of windows and doors leading to a peaceful deck, perfect for early morning meditation or late night relaxation by the lake. The dual closets and cozy, private office are a perfect use of space and efficiency, and the master bathroom affords all the luxurious and stylish amenities you would expect from this expertly designed home. Opposite the master wing on the first floor, the in-law suite—complete with a separate living area and kitchen—is tucked behind the garage, offering guests amazing views coupled with a sense of privacy. Upstairs, the three bedrooms offer more functional charm and whimsy. A bunkroom with a custom climbing wall and fully en suited bath is adjacent to the two cheerful Jack-and-Jill bedrooms, equally as personalized and lovely.
In addition to its modern and refined design, there are hidden gems throughout the house. A large home command center, complete with built-in desks and cabinetry could serve as the perfect craft and homework room or could just as easily be used as an additional family living area on the main level. The mudroom, which features delightful turquoise planks repurposed from the original boat dock on the property, provides a much needed area for storage and organization of a family’s everyday items. And a hidden storage space behind the garage affords the perfect space for storing lake toys such as kayaks, paddleboards, and life jackets, keeping the area looking neat and tidy. Two separate and discreet outdoor showers offer a quick rinse before coming into the house after a long day of play or relaxation on the water. There is even an indoor, custom-designed dog kennel space for keeping your pet happy and comfortable.
Located in the highly acclaimed Eanes ISD, minutes away from conveniences such as coffee shops, library, churches, and shopping, this amazing 1.64 acre lot, just two doors down from the Lake Hills Community Park preserve, is truly a Lake Austin treasure.
