About our home
Our home sits on 20 acres in a fabulous, friendly neighborhood one mile from beautiful Lake Travis. Our property is a private entertainment wonderland with a pool with waterfalls, a hottub, baseball diamond, volleyball court, and creek where we often see white-tail deer. There is also a lovely pool-cabana with an outdoor grill, sauna and tropical outside shower. Also in our outdoor entertainment area is a wood-burning pizza oven, large smoker/Bar-B-Q and pool table.
Some other amenities include a tranquil, 1000 gallon aquarium, master bath with garden tub, rain shower and bidet. There is also a study and an informal living area with a TV/movie projector and screen.
Our home has a gourmet kitchen with stainless, professional grade appliances, granite counters and two dining areas.
We also belong to a lake club with a lazy-river pool, waterslide, restaurant etc. that we may be able to include with the swap to enjoy seasonally.
Austin is a favorite destination in Texas. It has a wonderful live-music scene, lots of water sports, great museums, the capital, and the University of Texas. We can help you plan a wonderful visit to Texas. San Antonio is about an hour and a half away, with the famous River Walk, and the Alamo. Dallas and Houston are about 3 hours away.
