About the Property

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 10 on 10 acres

Nestled high above Lake Travis (near the famous Oasis Restaurant/Mansfield Dam and only 25-30 minutes from downtown Austin) Lake Travis Lake House is a 10 acre retreat with spectacular views of the main body of Lake Travis. This gorgeous 3-bedroom, 2-luxury-full-bath home was completely remodeled in 2005. Chefs will be amazed at the ultra-high-end kitchen, featuring a Viking Stove, Sub-Zero Refrigerator, granite countertops and imported travertine sink. Designers will marvel at the floor-to-ceiling travertine bathrooms, with an oversized soaking tub and magnificent European-style travertine shower. All will sleep well in the tastefully-decorated fully-furnished bedrooms.

Imagine sitting out on the large porch watching the sun set over the lake, strolling around the 10 acres admiring the other 'residents', including rare white peacocks, beautiful black cochin chickens, among others!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: I am one of the few of us who were actually born in the Austin area, but I've always had the urge to travel and live abroad. I've lived about half of my adult life all over Europe, North Africa, Latin America and Asia and loved it. I also went to school in Boston and lived in Washington, D.C. There was always something about Austin, though, that kept drawing me back. Once I decided to leave the stressful corporate grind, I decided to find a place that would be less than 45 minutes from a major progressive city and where I could have land and a great water view. I simply couldn't find anything that compared to Austin and when I found this property, I knew I would have it for life.

Why Volente, TX, USA:
The completely renovated 1940's farmhouse sits on the last 10 acres of an original 2000 acre ranch that is now surrounded by canyon land perserve. The homesite was choosen by the original owners for its outstanding views and its park like setting. The moment you arrive you will feel right at home. We encourage all of our guests to settle in and enjoy the peace and quiet.
