Volente house description

Nestled high above Lake Travis (near the famous Oasis Restaurant/Mansfield Dam and only 25-30 minutes from downtown Austin) Lake Travis Lake House is a 10 acre retreat with spectacular views of the main body of Lake Travis. This gorgeous 3-bedroom, 2-luxury-full-bath home was completely remodeled in 2005. Chefs will be amazed at the ultra-high-end kitchen, featuring a Viking Stove, Sub-Zero Refrigerator, granite countertops and imported travertine sink. Designers will marvel at the floor-to-ceiling travertine bathrooms, with an oversized soaking tub and magnificent European-style travertine shower. All will sleep well in the tastefully-decorated fully-furnished bedrooms.

Imagine sitting out on the large porch watching the sun set over the lake, strolling around the 10 acres admiring the other 'residents', including rare white peacocks, beautiful black cochin chickens, among others!

                                  Year Purchased: 2004

                                  About: I grew up in a small town in Texas but I always knew I wanted to live in Austin. I moved here in 1983 and after living close to downtown for many years I made the decision to move out to Lake Travis where I live today. I really do prefer country living to the city and this property provides the perfect spot to enjoy both. My home is about 7 minutes away from the vacation rental so I am always close by should you need anything.

                                  Why Volente:
                                  The completely renovated 1940's farmhouse sits on the last 10 acres of an original 2000 acre ranch that is now surrounded by canyon land perserve. The homesite was choosen by the original owners for its outstanding views and its park like setting. The moment you arrive you will feel right at home. We encourage all of our guests to settle in and enjoy the peace and quiet.
