Property description

The Tower of Travis is among the most unique houses on Lake Travis. There is no other house that has a similar appearance. The house was designed to resemble the superstructure of an ocean going vessel. The 4 levels towering nearly 7 stories in the air afford exceptional views of Lake Travis and the surrounding Hill Country.
The Tower of Travis is situated on 'Angel Point' located down a gravel lane a short distance from Bee Creek Road. Lake Travis is immediately adjacent (fish have been caught from the balconies when Lake Travis is in an elevated state). Look down into the top of our large heritage oak tree from the 2nd level balcony. Swim, float or boat in beautiful Lake Travis. After your fun filled day on Lake Travis, the roof top hot tub is a really great place to relax or party with your friends. You will enjoy the often incredible sunsets, and then the stars and moon start their show in the night sky. If you have the energy, please feel free to enjoy fishing or swimming into the night at our private marina. The Tower of Travis was designed for entertaining.
For those who desire, The Tower on Lake Travis is just a short drive to downtown Austin to take advantage of the entertainment available there.
If you desire a special event or large party (20 or more persons), such events must have prior permission, as special accommodations are necessary.
Have a really excellent time and enjoy your stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: My name is Bill Fowler. I grew up in Austin and am a UT graduate. 1998 was a very lucky year for me, as I not only found Angel Point, but I met my wife to be Sherri. Sherri and I started the new millennium by marriage in New Zealand. I designed,the Travis Tower during 1999 and my construction company, HHCC Inc., completed construction of the Travis Tower in during 2001.

Why the Owner Chose Big Bee Creek, TX, USA:
As a teen aged boy, I became addicted to Lake Travis. Back in the the mid 1990's I was a bachelor living on a large houseboat. Every weekend, I would take my houseboat up and down Lake Travis, exploring the many coves hoping to find the ultimate building site. I found the perfect piece of lake front property on Angel Point in Bee Creek Cove, where I built Travis Tower.

The Unique Benefits at this Tower:
Travis Tower is a great place to unwind and enjoy what makes Austin and Central Texas special. You can enjoy the cool waters of Lake Travis which is usually just steps away. Swim, boat , fish or float. Have an intimate evening watching the stars, relaxing in the roof top hot tub or have a party with your friends. The Tower of Travis has something for everyone.
