Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: We will make sure your stay is relaxing and very enjoyable. Mimi bought this property to 'get away' from the busy world. We used to live in this house and loved every minute of it. There is not much property left on Lake Austin. It is quiet here and we love to go skiing, relax on the boat dock, or go to the local restaurants nearby.

Why the Owner Chose Windy Cove, Austin, TX, USA:
Retirement home. On the lake, central to downtown, private neighborhood, view of 360 bridge, wake boarding, water skiing, jet skiing and boating to restaurants.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Central, no traffic, close to everything and a great deal!
