The large boat deck is 2 stories, is both covered and uncovered, is over Lake Austin, giving you a beautiful view of the 360 bridge and a nice cool breeze in the hot summer time. There is a chiminea for a fire at night, a gas grill for BBQing and lots of lounge chairs for taking a nap and relaxing! Take the canoe, kayaks or paddle board (upon request) for a little trip up or down the lake. Feed the swans that come in the morning.
If you fish, bring your fishing rods! There are 20-35 lb carp, bass and catfish.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: This is our Mimi's house! She lives in the cottage the majority of the time but When she is traveling the world or visiting her other grandchildren, she likes for other people to enjoy the lake, like she does. We will make sure your stay is relaxing and very enjoyable. Mimi bought this property to 'get away' from the busy world. We used to live in this house and loved every minute of it. There is not much property left on Lake Austin. It is quiet here and we love to go skiing, relax on the boat dock, or go to the local restaurants nearby.

Why the Owner Chose Greenshores On Lake Austin:
Retirement home. On the lake, central to downtown, private neighborhood, view of 360 bridge, wake boarding, water skiing, jet skiing and boating to restaurants.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Central, no traffic, close to everything and a great deal!
