If you're looking for a private weekend escape or a vacation destination for your entire family, this new 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home on Inks Lake is a perfect getaway. Inks Lake, nestled in between Burnet and Llano in the beautiful Texas hill country, is drought resistant (constant level) and also the home of the popular Inks Lake State Park and Camp Longhorn.
This uniquely designed two story home features lots of windows and scenic lake views from every room. The kitchen and dining area offers plenty of space for meal preparation on granite and stainless steel counter tops, new stainless stove/oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave oven, coffee maker and utensils. If cooking outside is your preference, a gas grill and large, wood fired BBQ pit are both available for perfecting your favorite outdoor recipes. The utility room beside the kitchen includes a washer and dryer for refreshing your weekend wardrobe or extended stays. A comfortable living room, bedroom with a king size bed, 40' flat panel TV/DVD and 1.5 bathrooms complete the downstairs floorplan. A spiral staircase leads upstairs to a dramatic 1930's style steel catwalk that connects two bedrooms and a large shared bath. Both upstairs bedrooms have a double bed; one of the upstairs bedrooms also features a cozy bunk bed.
A large covered deck spans the front of the house, offers a cool breeze and plenty of additional lakeside seating. The water's edge is only a short walk away across a large St. Augustine grass yard. Wide concrete steps provide easy access to the water and boat dock on a private, no-wake cove which is ideal for swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking or floating peacefully on inner tubes with friends. The dock features plenty of space for sun bathing during the day or star gazing at night. Our boat normally occupies the boat lift from April-September but you are welcome to bring a boat and tie it to the mooring buoy or dock. Boat and jetski rentals are available close by.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: So many wonderful memories have been made with our extended family at Inks Lake. We bought the lots in Inks Lake Village in 2000. We designed and started construction of the house and boat dock in 2005.
Why the Owner Chose Inks Lake: Inks Lake Village is a wonderful, small gated community located on this constant level lake. Many of the Texas lakes are so low during our Texas droughts, but not Inks. Many visitors over the years have commented of the relaxed feeling our place holds. Come sit in the back porch rocking chairs, under the ceiling fans and cool down with a large glass of iced tea.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Daybreak and sunset are our favorite times of the day. The lake is normally calm and and exudes serenity. And the kids like wake boarding, tubing, wake surfing, or water skiing almost any time of the day! Secure, gated community.
