4 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, 2 1/2 Baths, Sleeps 16, Gourmet Kitchen

This is a great vacation lake house for family or family and friends that has a large gourmet kitchen. The house can sleep up to 16 comfortably. Renovations were made in 2013 to the master bathroom and a new couch and recliner were added to the living room. In 2016 and 2017, the interiors and exterior were freshly painted for a more contemporary look.

The home is split into three levels. You first descend the stairs to the ground floor where you'll find a half bath and the bedroom set up with two twin beds with trundle beds.

From the ground floor, you descend to another floor that has a half bath, a full bath, the room with queen bunk beds, and a room with a single queen. Both rooms open up to a patio that has views of the hills and the lake.

Above the ground floor is the large, open living room, dining room, kitchen, and game room. This floor opens up to a patio that is above the one below and has seating for 8 and the BBQ pit.

One more flight above the living room is the large master suite with master bathroom and a private patio.

The garage door is just for show! It was converted into the game room and kitchen by the previous owners.

The house and accommodations were more than amazing and the view and scenery add to the experience. It was easy access to the lake and community pool. I would recommend this property to anyone needing a weekend getaway!

                                                                We enjoyed very much our stay in April. The weather was gorgeous. The house is very spacious, the jitchen well equiped. Our teenager kids enjoyed playing billard - and we enjoyed walking and jogging in the area. The house has a nice view on the lake and is in the middle of the nature - deers are everywhere and come very close to the house.

                                                                There is a pool just 50m away from the house which we appreciated a lot.

                                                                Austin is just a 40min drive away, so we went several times for shopping, sight seeing and dining.

                                                                The plot is situated directly oon the lake, but we could not access the lake at that time, the area was not cleaned up, probably too early in the season.

                                                                Great place to get away
