Enjoy magnificent views at the top of this gated 5.5 acre secluded, private lake front estate property. The 1950's lake house, perched at the top of a rocky bluff, was designed with huge windows to take advantage of the stunning views of Lake Austin.
Access serene Lake Austin waterfront with private boat dock via steps leading from the vacation home above or via a separate driveway entrance.
A sparkling swimming pool with outdoor lounging and dining areas are also perfectly positioned to take in the view. The home retains its original charm (with three fireplaces and a hill country stone interior wall), and has been lovingly updated to include all the modern amenities needed for a fun-filled or peaceful getaway.
This 2500, sq ft, 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage sleeps 6 – 8 and is just 20 minutes from downtown Austin. The cottage is beautifully decorated and comes with wifi, large screen 47” flatscreen TV and laundry.
Boat Dock allows for easy water access and has stand-up paddle boards and tandem kayak for usage. Boats can be moored overnight close to shore.
This is a unique sanctuary on the shores of Lake Austin ideally suited for a private family getaway, yet so close to the excitement of downtown Austin and Lakeway.
Our property is not suitable for bachelor, bachelorette or other large party groups.

About the owner: We are an Austin family with Anglo / Kentucky roots. Having travelled extensively and lived in multiple cities around the world, we recently decided to call Austin home. As a family of 4, we love enjoying everything that Austin has to offer. Our 2 daughters, 10 and 8, are enrolled in the excellent Eanes schools and enjoy soccer, horse riding and all water sports.
Why the Owner Chose Rio Robles, Austin, TX, USA:
This is a unique waterfront property in Austin and on Lake Austin. It was owned for 30 years by Texas's own Percy V. Pennybacker (yes, the guy the bridge is named after!). This property allows you to enjoy the party down at the lake and then retreat up to the serenity at the top of the Bluff.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Views and the water...how could you not fall in love with it. Whether it is the dawn when the birds are scouting breakfast over the lake, the sunsets that fall over the length of the lake or the evening where everyone's boat dock lights make the lake sparkle like an Italian harbor...every time of day is great.
