Live large on Lady Bird Lake in this elegant cliffside retreat overlooking Red Bud Island. These are the most enviable views in all of Austin!

Nestled on a prominent cliff with lake views that go on for miles, stands this dramatic Mediterranean-style retreat, boasting 9,990 square feet, six bedrooms, seven full and two partial bathrooms, incredible infinity edge pool, and sprawling mature acreage – rare for the area — with close proximity to  the bustling capital’s city center.

“This is a one of a kind property for Austin,” says listing agent, Cord Shiflet, of Moreland Properties. “More than half of the value is in the land. Five-acres hanging above Lady Bird Lake with eye-level views of downtown and miles of water.”

Oh and what a parcel indeed! This exclusive masterpiece welcomes you with iron gates flanked by gorgeous Texas limestone, and an elongated drive to set the tone.

Lushly landscaped with manicured greenspace and a canopy of shade trees, you’ll become enveloped by the private secluded feel of this exquisite Austin abode.

“The quality of construction is unsurpassed, using some of Austin’s most well-respected names like Shiflet Group Architects and Gary Reissig Builders,” Shiflet adds. “The property consists of a main house, a detached pool house, a detached garage apartment, six-car garage, and gorgeous grounds. Less than 10 minutes to downtown.”

Inside you’ll find sumptuous mahogany floors, plaster walls, and soaring, high-barreled ceilings that are in a word magnificent. This unforgettable space welcomes company with floor-to-ceiling windows framing unmatched waterfront views.

In the gourmet kitchen, exquisite Carrara marble, custom cabinets, highest grade appliances and an open concept layout built for entertaining. The eat-in kitchen looks out to the den with a herringbone hearth – one of four fireplaces in the home – and offers an inviting breakfast nook with arched picture windows streaming an abundance of natural light.

A formal dining with butler’s pantry, a huge wine cellar, and handsome billiards room with wet bar are just a few of the special rooms to wine and dine your guests.

Now brace yourselves, this master suite will have you green with envy! Exposed beams, herringbone fireplace, sitting area, and private terrace with … you guessed it, unbeatable Lady Bird Lake views. Lest we forget to mention the tranquil spa-bath, which we hear is incredible. You’ll have to schedule a tour to see for yourself.

As much as I love the inside of the home, I have to circle back to the jaw-dropping resort-style pool! Not many can compete with this one.

From splashing water features to the most luxurious stone, and of course pristine views, this outdoor oasis takes the cake. One look at the sophisticated cabana, pool house, and lounge chairs has us dreaming of umbrella drinks.
