Kingsland apartment description

Quiet, Sophisticated, Casual, And Comfortable On A Big Bend Of Open Water!

Here's the perfect place to come in winter for the Vanishing Texas River Cruise by Canyon of the Eagles, the premier ecological cruise of Texas. Departing from Lake Buchanan in the Central Texas Hill Country, the cruises provide you spectacular views of Lake Buchanan, the Colorado River, native Texas wildlife, waterfalls, world-class bird watching and wintering Bald Eagles.

We call our place Pelican Point on Lake LBJ, because pelicans and sea gulls from the coast and other wintering birds roost here in the winter.

Lake LBJ, one of the Highland Lakes of the Texas Colorado River, is the largest constant-level lake in the US.

Kingsland is at the confluence of the Llano and the Colorado Rivers. Pelican Point is on the Colorado arm of the lake-- the prettiest part of the lake.

Kingsland is the Heart of the Hill Country:
60 miles west of Austin, 10 miles from Longhorn Caverns, 25 miles from Johnson City, 38 miles from Enchanted Rock, 53 miles from historic Fredericksburg.

This architect-remodeled apartment is clean, well-lighted and up-scale-- only 20 feet from the water, shaded by five beautiful oaks. Summer is fabulous, but fall, winter, and spring have to be experienced to be believed! The lake is all yours. It's quiet, it's subdued, it's like your best friend.

Pelican Point is a special place where memories are made.

2 bedrooms and 2 baths, a chef's kitchen/bar, large open living/dining area with lots of windows, and waterfront porch with a gas grill and ceiling fans. WiFi, TV.

Located on a peninsula on a very nice stretch of water in a very nice neighborhood, it's convenient to Kingsland for groceries, restaurants, shopping, etc. It's on a Big Bend on the Colorado River, offering sweeping water views.

Master Bedroom has a queen bed and private bath (sleeps 2). Second Bedroom and Bath has a queen bed and bunk beds (this room can sleep 4).

A kayak is available. There's also an 8' wide boat slip with lift and a slip and lift for 2 jet skis available for use if you want to bring them or rent them locally.

We love dogs. We're not set up for them at this time, but we soon will be, so please check with us.

Here's a good question! Thank you for asking!! So, you're happily vacationing on the first floor. Who's on the 2nd floor, how noisy are they, and what's the access between floors?

I, the owner, and/or a few friends may be upstairs-- but mostly only on weekends. But you'd hardly know. The floor between is solid concrete (road bridge girders!) and there is NO sound transmission between floors. The house is actually a duplex and there is no access and no noise between floors.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1999

          About the owner: I'm a practicing architect (mainly residential) in Austin since 1981. Stephen Kubenka Architects, Austin, TX.

          Why the Owner Chose Kingsland:
          We've been coming to Lake LBJ since the middle 1980s when my father-in-law started renting summer homes here and then bought one in 1989. I love this beautiful constant-level lake so much I, too, had to have a home here, too, mainly for weekends.

          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
          In the early days of our visits to Lake LBJ, we stayed in homes near Horseshoe Bay on the southern end of the lake. That part of the lake is great for sailing but is usually too choppy for skiing. So we'd always boat up several miles to Kingsland and ski the calmer Colorado River arm of the lake. The Colorado arm is the prettiest most verdant part of the lake. Why spend hours and gas getting up there every time you wanted to ski? Why not just live there, right?
