Space 3,100 sq. ft.

About the property

5 bedroom, 3 bath Lake View Home with 1700 sq. ft. deck on Scenic Lake Travis


***Hot Tub and Outside Fireplace***

***NO house PARTIES or EVENTS allowed***

1700 SQUARE FOOT DECK with water wall feature and HOT TUB has panoramic views of Lake Travis. Guests gather on the deck for lively conversation and to toast the sun as it sets over the lake and extending hill country.

Evenings are enjoyed down by the OUTSIDE FIREPLACE and patio where a fire welcomes s'mores and more.

The large sectional sofa in the MOVIE ROOM provides a great movie going experience watching the 65" TV screen. The movie room is a 6th bedroom that sleeps at least two on the trundle bed.

The master bedroom has an in-suite LARGE MASTER BATHROOM with a separate shower and Jacuzzi bathtub. The master bedroom also has a balcony that faces the lake which gives the feeling of being high in the trees like a tree house.

Upstairs is an APARTMENT set up with an additional entrance from the deck. The apartment includes 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, living room, dining room and a kitchen that has a full size refrigerator, microwave and sink. The double doors that lead to the deck from the apartment showcase stunning views of Lake Travis.

Wildlife definitely abounds in Point Venture with deer, foxes, rabbits, roadrunners and birds.

The community has a private park with a sometimes BEACH when the water levels dip low, basketball court, children's playground and boat ramps. There is also the Point Venture Golf Course which boasts as one of the best 9 hole courses in the state. Point Venture has a Junior Olympic swimming pool, workout facility and tennis courts.

A special treat is to venture on down to the floating restaurant on Lake Travis, The Gnarly Gar, for some lake side food and to listen to the locals play your favorite music.

About Lisa & Richard Jackson

We are Texans and love Lake Travis. We have been making memories on Lake Travis for over 30 years. We think this is heaven on earth!

Lisa & Richard Jackson purchased this house in 2002

Why Lisa & Richard Jackson chose Lake Travis

We built this house in 2002 on land that has been in the family for 40 years. The house was designed with the idea of being together and enjoying the views.

What makes this house unique

The house was designed to have a view of the lake from just about any place in the house. Our most favorite spot is the deck. We gather on the deck on the double chase or hang out in the hot tub and tell stories for hours. Fireside chats with a glass of wine with good friends is another favorite.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a girls 3 day stay and we had a blast!! BEAUTIFUL view, house was immaculate and well equipped. I would recommend this home to anyone wanting a carefree, relaxing time.

Absolutely breathtaking views!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful in every way!! We loved the cool crisp mornings eating breakfast on the deck. The hummingbirds, deer in the backyard and lightening bugs were the lights of the stay. We loved the pool and lake swimming. We also rented a boat one day which was awesome because you catch the boat 5 minutes from the house. The only bumps we had were the beds were a bit uncomfortable and had some trouble working the DVD player. Not major. Overall we loved this house so much that we would stay here again!!! Lisa was available all the time and even left a basket of goodies for us! Thank you for sharing your amazing home!!! 😃

BEAUTIFUL, and perfect for our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous experience at Carl's on the Lake. The home was absolutely beautiful, and there was plenty of space for 9 kids and 9 adults. The home was clean, comfortable, fun, and the view was amazing. We loved the outside deck and the kids loved the hot tub. We saw several deer hanging around the house, so cute! It was a perfect space for our family reunion. We spent the first day at the community pool (which is close by, partially shaded, and big) and the second day at the beach/lake. We spent our evenings gathered around the dining room table playing games and eating together. We also went to the Gnarly Gar - awesome restaurant nearby. We would absolutely stay there again! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lisa!

Beautiful view, great deck to gather & enjoy sunrise to sunset! Peaceful & quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed sharing this beautiful spot with 3 other couples. Everyone just wanted to kick back, relax and catch up. We spent most of the weekend on the back deck enjoying the beautiful panoramic view of the lake. No matter what time of day we had a shady spot to gather. Great place, fun weekend! Thanks!

Great Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had our yearly reunion at Carl's on the lake and loved it. We were very happy with the view and the lovely deck. I asked the girls to send me their thoughts, and there was very little to complain about. There was no blanket in the master bedroom, but we borrowed one from another room. We wished for a downstairs DVD player, but we survived just fine. The house suited our group to a tee. I sure miss being out on the deck and seeing that beautiful water. Thank you, Lisa, for taking such good care of us. We appreciated your care and concern for us.

Owner's Response: You ladies were such a joy to have in our home! It was great getting to know you and meet you so many times and to have you coming back this summer. We do have blankets in abundance and several for every bed....some of them must have been placed in other bedrooms. The DVD player in the movie room is where most everyone watches movies. At your suggestion we have added an additional DVD player to the third TV. See you soon as our deck with that fantastic view will be waiting for you!
