                  Car: Recommended

                  A leisure drive to the train depot allows guests to park and ride the train into downtown Austin to enjoy music, shopping and sightseeing. Austin is a hip and trendy city with the cultural charm of the southwest. Events at the Cedar Park Center are available for hockey fans, music lovers and thrill seekers. Enjoying walks with your dog on our newly built greenbelt trails and the Sandy Creek valley is a must. Kayaking, swimming and boating from the boat dock below the lake house provides privacy and adventure. Balcones Canyonland Preserve is located 15 minutes along the Hill Country Trail provides more hiking and bird watching. Sitting on the deck, listening and watching the birds will make a birdwatcher out of anyone. All of you fishermen, must know this is a great area for white and Guadalupe bass fishing and our dock sits in a no wake zone. By boat you can easily travel to Cafe Blue, Carlos n Charlie's, Johnny Fins, Volente Water Park, Mansfield Dam, Hippie Hollow and Windy Point. Our local organic farmers, in Cedar Park, provide excellent, certified organic vegetables on Saturdays and they are located within a 15 minutes from Jonestown. Two cruise bicycles and two kayaks are available for your pleasure, and fishing gear, too.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: I am originally from Corpus Christi and followed my future wife to the Austin area. We have lived in the Texas Hill Country at Lake Travis for 30 years. I am a 25 year employee of a Lake Travis water utility and my wife is a social worker. I am blessed with having a wonderful family, career and community. We would love to share this special place with you.

                  Why the Owner Chose Jonestown:
                  There is something special about living by the water. For us, it is Lake Travis, hearing the fish splash in the lake, seeing a Great-horned Owl soar overhead at dusk, speeding on top of the waves on Lake Travis, enjoying the refreshing water. And then, being so close to downtown Austin. It is easy to ride the train or drive into town.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  What I love about our home is the privacy and natural beauty surrounding it. Outside dining and relaxing in a nature lover's paradise.
