Property description

City of Austin now requires me to do monthly contracts. Although you must accept a month contract, please ask for a discount if you plan to be there less than a month. I can discount your 30 day contract to reflect old weekend, weekday, and weekly rates.
This 2,000 sq ft home is located about 1 mile downstream of Mansfield Dam(for Lake Travis) in the glassy waters of Lake Austin, a 22 mile long, CONSTANT LEVEL lake, that runs through West Austin. The Pecan shady lot has 75' of lake front with a dock and BOAT HOIST/SLIP for >21' x >8' beam ski boat. This 3 level home includes about 800 sq ft of decks, and has 24 large windows that look onto Lake Austin. Motor boating & water skiing/boarding in the upper areas of Lake Austin offer some of the smoothest water surfaces in the world. Dock fishing from your backyard can yield a good size bass on a good day.
The house is perfect for two couples with children, or a serious water ski/wake boarding club. It comes with HD cable TV and wireless internet. There are 2 parking spots near the front door, and two more next to owners workshop where you can park your boat's trailer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I own the property. I have lived in Austin since 1969, when I came here from Houston to study at the University of Texas. I am a freelance videographer working for national outlets like ESPN.

Why the Owner Chose Apache Shores, Austin, TX, USA:
BOAT HOIST FOR 21' X 8' BOAT. Lake access to the coolest, quietest part of Lake Austin. Mansfield Dam is about one mile upstream, and releases cool water from deep under Lake Travis. In there summer, the cool water flowing by the shaded dock makes the air much cooler than the 98 degrees your iPhone is telling you.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
On west side of Lake Austin, pecan tree shady in the afternoon, cool temp. water. Smoothest water in Texas. Lake Austin has various turns that block off wind for glassy water sports.
