Imagine your holiday lakeside on a quiet cove in a rare mid-century architectural gem with walls of glass bringing beautiful relaxing views of Lake LBJ right into your living area and bedrooms. Our home sits in the middle of a one acre lot on a quiet cove providing privacy and views you rarely find on the lake. When you wake in the morning even without leaving your bed, you can survey the lake for the days conditions on the water – ready for a morning slalom, or interested in casting a line, your day can’t start better than this.
This unique property was built in the late 60’s. It’s not a house on the lake, but a lake Cabin retreat loaded with character, views, privacy, and surrounded by nature. The decking that surrounds the main and guest cabin project out into the canopy of the mature trees that cover the hillside lot. While you will not find any manicured grass on the property the main cabin deck, guest cabin deck, mid-level deck and spacious multi-slip dock provide the perfect vista’s to enjoy the lake (and views of the neighbors green grass!) to the fullest!
There are two separate cabins on the property connected by a covered breezeway. The main cabin houses the master bedroom and bath, the galley kitchen and the combined living and dining room. The guest cabin has two bedrooms, one with two bunk beds and the other with a queen bed. These two bedrooms share a common bathroom with shower. Step outside from either of these bedrooms through private doors and there is decking everywhere to enjoy your morning cup of coffee, an afternoon book, or an evening glass of wine all while sitting in the tree canopy with incredible views of the lake. There is plenty of parking on the property with room for two vehicles on the street in the pull out area and a parking area with room for additional cars, trailers, and an electrical hookup for an RV.
From the main cabin deck, stairs lead you down towards the lake with the mid level deck one flight down on the hillside and in the trees. From this shaded vantage point, you can relax on the rustic bamboo furniture or have lunch on the picnic table while being just a stones throw from the lake. A few more steps take you to the dock which was designed and built to accommodate a large group with room for all. The main dock faces 200 feet of natural undeveloped shore line. Some of the best fishing on the lake can reached within a cast of our dock – the water depth in this area (15ft) hides the wooden debris on the bottom that makes this partly shaded/partly open water a favorite spot of LBJ fisherman (and the fish too). In the summer of 2011 in a 4 hour span, six different species of fish were caught (and released) from the dock by one fisherman! Turn on the flood lights at night and drop in a line or show the kids how easy it is to catch blue gills. If you love fishing, it doesn’t get a whole lot better than this from the shore!
Of course time at the lake is not complete without time on and in the water. Swimming is great in the deep water off the dock. Life jackets are a must for the young kids or non swimmers. Boat traffic into the cove is light, and the heavy waves that can develop at open water properties are non-existent here. There is an open boat slip with an electric lift and an open jet ski ramp for your water craft. A Kayak is available for use and the guest boat house is loaded with deck chairs for family and friends.
Our family and friends have grown up at this unique and special property over the last 15 years. It is our pleasure to share our home away from home with you and your guests. Please call or email for more pictures and to see if your holiday dates are open. We would be honored to have you as our guest...
