Point Venture house description

Gorgeous views of the lake and hill country from every room. This spacious, three-bedroom home is an ideal spot for executive retreats and family vacations. It is located in the fun and relaxing village of Point Venture. Point Venture is a beautiful area on a private, panoramic peninsula in Lake Travis (Texas' clearest lake) with activities for young and old!

If you love boating, fishing, swimming, exercising, or just relaxing and watching magnificent Texas sunsets, this is the place for you. You can relax on one of our decks/ balconies and take in the lovely lake view or take a short walk to our private, gated access to a beautifully manicured, lake park that includes boat ramp, beach, and picnic tables.

The house is on an elevated corner lot directly across the road from the Lake Travis shoreline. The home has vacant wooded lots on either side that enhances privacy. The large, fenced backyard is landscaped with relaxing rock formations nestled among the shade trees.

After a day of fun, relax in the large den that looks to the west and the setting sun or watch your favorite show on large flat screen wall-mounted tv . Step up to enjoy dining at the table for 10 under a rustic deer mule chandelier. Move south for one last snack in the large kitchen with granite/slate countertops and ALL the conveniences of home plus a breakfast bar that looks out to the lake and hills. Retire to the master bedroom that includes a king-size bed with a private bath and private access to your outside deck that offers the North Stars' reflection on the sleeping lake.

Do not forget your guests as they take one of two stairways up to the second floor. As they reach the top they will be greeted with another view of the lake through a wall of windows and a game room for a quick game of poker or bumper pool. Both upstairs bedrooms are private suites. Each room has two queen-size beds and a private full bath. Each room also has a private access to the second story deck that includes one final look at the sleeping lake between the cover of the hills.

In addition to having direct access to the best Lake in Texas to boat, sail, fish, dive, snorkel, water ski, jet ski, etc... you can take advantage of all the great Point Venture amenities. Activities to choose from include swimming in the Jr.Olympic-sized pool, playing a round of golf on the nine-hole course, or playing tennis on one of the six courts.

Point Venture has a full-service marina, a 50+ acre waterfront park with two boat ramps, and is home to The gnarly Gar, Austin's floating restaurant. In addition, there is a public, 9-hole golf course and year-round restaurants within five miles of Point Venture. A 20-minute drive will place you at Lakeline Mall or the new Roundrock Outlet Mall.

                      About the owner: My husband and I love Lake Travis. We met and married while at UT. Because Austin is so unique and beautiful, we visited the Austin area often. Several years back we decided to invest in a lake house to have a place to entertain, relax and be together with family.

                      Why the Owner Chose Point Venture:
                      Our home is large and comfortable and our location is perfect for views and lake access.
