Tucked away in a quiet cove overlooking the scenic shores of Lake Austin lies one of the area’s most iconic and coveted properties. Bordered by water on three sides with 665 feet of main lake frontage, this offering commands 8.8 acres making it one of the largest remaining parcels available in Austin. Surrounded by lush mature landscaping punctuated with graceful weeping willow trees, ‘Willow Beach’ presents an opportunity to own an exceptional residence unmatched in design, acreage, frontage and privacy.
An architectural masterpiece 11 years in the making, the nearly 7,000-square-foot main house has won numerous national and international awards for its prolific design and outstanding craftsmanship. Created in harmony with nature, the sprawling open plan features large expanses of glass that fill every room with an abundance of natural light while capitalizing on serene lake and lagoon views.
Custom quarried rough-cut limestone distinguishes the exterior façade while inside are an exquisite array of notable features. The powder room sink is carved from rare black limestone hand-picked in Italy by the homeowners and the fireplace hearth is made of book-matched soapstone. A cantilevered hidden stairway leads to a second-level room and a 1,000-square-foot great room is enclosed by glass on both sides.
Outside, an award-winning pedestrian bridge takes guests to an equally impressive 2,410-square-foot guest house fashioned of Brazilian ipe wood.
Situated less than eight miles to downtown Austin in a highly desirable school district, Willow Beach stands alone in both construction and setting. “I have been in real estate for 20 years and I can honestly say there’s not another property that is as iconic as Willow Beach,” states Listing Agent, Kathryn Scarborough. “This is tranquility at its finest.”
