Spicewood house description

*** Currently Lake Travis is extremely low and there is no water behind our house. SPECIAL RATES are available (even for the summer) if you book in advance. Call or e-mail the owner. ***

1-story with fantastic deck overlooking the Pedernales Arm of Lake Travis (2 miles from the confluence of the Colorado with the Pedernales on Lake Travis) - only 30 miles (or 35 minutes) from downtown Austin.

Cathedral ceilings in the great room, open kitchen with 2 sinks and huge granite island, stainless steel appliances. All glass on back of house. 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths. Waterfront with clear blue water and boat dock with slip. Huge old Oak trees shade the 1,200 foot deck that has an outdoor dining and living area. Large fenced front yard for kids.

Bring your boat or jet ski's and launch in our private neighborhood ramp, then tie up to our covered boat dock. You can either swim off our dock (right at the house) or go up the street to Krause Springs (TX Monthly's top 10 best spring fed swimming holes in Texas). It has a great fresh water swimming pool, shaded by lovely, huge Cypress Trees and picnic tables/grills.

                  There are several great wineries nearby. There's also three wonderful state parks that border the lake and have running and mountain biking trails.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: We bought our lovely lake home a few years ago from the original owners. When we were looking for a lake home to purchase we toured this one and thought it looked familiar. Later we figured out we had rented this home two year earlier. At the time, we commented to our friends that we would love to own a house like this one! Now we do and are sharing it with you. At this house you are really in the country, away from it all - yet only 35 minutes from downtown Austin and less than 20 minutes to shopping and dining at the Hill Country Galleria. Please take care of our home and enjoy! Rick and Teresa Davis

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  1) Hiking for miles and miles on easy trails through woods with lovely views. You can go right along the lake and stop and picnic on nice tables under the trees overlooking the lake. 2)Go to the wineries nearby. One of the loveliest is Stone House Vineyards, just down the street from us (you'll feel like you are in Napa Valley) 3) Swim and pic nic on our dock or at Krause Springs (the top spring fed swimming hole in Texas, according to Texas Monthly). You can swim in the spring fed pool under huge, stately Cypress tress. BBQ grills and picnic tables are in the park near the pool so you can watch the kids and cook/ relax. 4) Enjoy the zip lines. Harness up and zip through the air at tree top level at Cypress Valley Canopy Tours just a mile from our house. 5) Enjoy yoga and massage at Barbara's home, 1/2 mile from our home at her lovely wooded estate (all details on my website and in our Guest Book). 6) Enjoy concerts in the summer at Hill Country Galleria (outdoor cafes, shops and grassy amphitheater) 7) You can sit on our dock and enjoy a swim in Lake Travis. Or sit on the huge deck at the house, shaded by old oaks, and enjoy the 20 mile views of the hills and river.
