The evocatively named Watersedge at River Place neighborhood is nestled on the Lake Austin waterfront in the heart of Texas Hill Country, a region of Texas that boasts rolling hills, lush bushland, and picturesque lakes. Recently, Lake Austin Private Estate—a sanctuary on Big View Drive that takes advantage of everything the enviable location has to offer—came onto the market, offering the opportunity to buy into this slice of paradise.

Set on two acres with more than 300-foot of private waterfront, the estate comprises an expansive principal residence, a two-bedroom guesthouse, and a spacious studio apartment, making it ideal for entertaining guests or multi-generational living.

The five-bedroom primary residence is a study in Hill Country contemporary architectural style, with classic sandstone walls, large areas of glazing, and elegant Brazilian cherry wood floors. The ground floor boasts three separate living areas, an impressive kitchen with mahogany cabinets and a cozy breakfast nook, a dining room, a gym with an infra-red sauna, and an office with views over the lake. The private master suite occupies an entire wing and features expansive walk-in closets and its own screened porch. Meanwhile, the upper level makes the perfect hideaway for kids, with three bedrooms and a large rec room.

Given the lakeside location, however, the real star of the show is the lush grounds. The sprawling lawn is set up for outdoor sports and family games, and there's a saltwater pool and spa. There's even a private sandy beach with two boat docks for exploring the lake waters.

 

Outside of the grounds, the property is surrounded by 1,440 acres of natural preserve and is immersed in some of Austin's most spectacular landscape—think bushland, cliffs, ravines, and lakes. The estate is just a 20-minute walk to River Place Nature Trail, one of the best hiking trails in the city, which winds through bushland and leads to expansive vistas over canyonlands and the River Place Country Club. This private club is another outstanding feature of the area, with world-class golf, tennis, fitness, swimming, and dining facilities.

While Lake Austin Private Estate might feel a world away from city life, it's conveniently located an easy halfhour drive from the center of Downtown Austin. Known as one of the most vibrant cities in the country, Austin is famously the world's live music capital and is a hotbed for entrepreneurship. And, all of this can be enjoyed from the sanctuary of Lake Austin Private Estate.
