Overview

Lake-Flato designed Lake Austin retreat on 5.1 acres, the ultimate nature retreat in the heart of Austin. Located just a half a mile from Emma Long Park, the property is almost 50% wooded, with room to roam amongst heritage oak trees, native plants and plenty of wildlife. Two sides of the property enjoy water access, with over 500’ of main body and canal waterfront combined and Hog Pen Creek to the west. Carefully sited to maximize privacy, you will feel serenity wash over you as you approach the entry. When you’re ready for some excitement, the Domain and downtown Austin...

are just 20 minutes away.

The home was conceived through a close collaboration between the renowned architecture team and the homeowners, who asked for a modern aesthetic that also paid homage to iconic Texas ranches and lake houses. The result is an exceptionally well-thought-out home, with perfectly proportioned spaces that emphasize the natural beauty outside. Everywhere you look you will find special details, from the locally handcrafted iron railings, trusses and even ceiling-suspended cabinetry to the hand-blown glass light fixtures crafted by Austin artisans. The multi-structure home is centered around a main building that comprises the open plan living/dining rooms and sunny kitchen on the lower level. An upstairs loft offers a treehouse primary suite, open to the views when desired but shielded by a massive rolling door when privacy is desired. A second structure hosts two guest suites. Across the outdoor catwalk you’ll find a glass-enclosed office sure to inspire your best work.

As impressive as the interior is, much of the magic of the home lies outside. Multiple decks and seating areas dot the property, offering spaces to sit quietly and commune with nature or enjoy a cocktail with friends. A 25-yard lap pool stretches across the back of the house; the water shimmering through the living room windows inviting you out for a dip. A boardwalk leads you to the water’s edge that features a dock with screened-in room for bug-free lakeside dining. You will find all your cares melt away in your perfect lakeside retreat.
