Relax on the grounds or enjoy the view and visiting with friends on one of the deck's of the 7000 square foot main house' which also offers large living and dining areas. The main house also offers a gourmet kitchen and 7 large bedrooms and 1 super large owners suite. Seven of the eight bedrooms in the main have double french doors which open onto a patio or deck. There is an additional house on the property each with two bedrooms (1 is an open studio type room that shares the kitchen) one bath and a full kitchen and has a large game/billiards room which is for use by guests in the main house.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We live in Austin, Texas We have always loved beautiful properties with great views. When we first saw this property we believed it had one of the most incredible views around plus the benefit of being on the lake. The property was in rough shape, so we have spent the last 3 years restoring it. We take pride in sharing this beautiful property and do our best to make sure our guests are comfortable.

Why the Owner Chose Buchanan Dam, TX, USA:
The main house and apartment sits on a hill overlooking the lake and the grounds. There is a gentle tiered walk down to the lake frontage where you are greeted with stone patios, walkways and a picnic area. The property has a huge jetty tha extends into the lake and when lake levels are up you can fish off of it. Lake Buchanan is the largest lake in the Highland lakes chain and feeds Inks, LBJ, Marble Falls and Lake Travis. Buchanan is not a constant level lake, it goes up and down. We are in the deep end of the lake so lake levels don't affect us as much and the view remains outstanding no matter what the lake level is. We do have a boat ramp on the property and the property is situated in such as way as to great a small cove along the lake shoreline. There is a hill country sandy beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The view is absolutely amazing and it's hard to capture in photos. Large main house has over 7000 sq ft and apartment bulding next to it houses a rec room and 2 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is studio style and adjoins the kitchen. The property can easily handle business or church groups and family reunions. There are many areas on the property where you can get together as a group or walk around for privacy. We only lease this property one group at a time, so you are not only renting the main house and apartment but also the lake frontage, jetty, boat ramp and all of the 10 acres,
