Stunning and secluded, this 3+ acre waterfront oasis is tucked away on the limestone shores of Lake Travis with panoramic views as far as the eye can see. Offering exclusivity, privacy, and 300+ feet of prime deep waterfront, this property provides not only exceptional views, large native trees and vegetation, but also the opportunity for a boat dock and slips if desired. No LCRA permitting required.*
Only the second time available on the market in more than 80 years, this property also boasts a unique Austin history. Circa 1936, the Colliers created ten tracts along what was then the Colorado River. A group of Austin physicians learned of these tracts and, combined with their knowledge that Lake Travis would result from Mansfield Dam being built, bought the tracts because of their special location: flat building sites, deep water, significant height above the 714 spillway, and long sunset views.
The current property is two of the ten Collier tracts, which two families separately purchased in January 1938. One built a quintessential Lake Travis limestone cabin. This cabin has been lovingly restored and updated without compromising the nostalgic elements that create great character and charm. The other family relocated a home from near 3rd and Nueces in downtown Austin to the property along dirt roads more than 80 years ago. Memorabilia from the families was woven into the current interior design of the cabin and home including the wooden “guest log” and photos that evidence the many good times shared by family and guests from across the United States.
Shiflet Group Architects was commissioned to design the newest guest cottage and conditioned oversized two-car garage. Together with the cabin and house, these structures create a compound that continues to serve as a gathering place for friends and family to celebrate special occasions, relax, unwind, and to live with abandon.
Architectural plans for entirely new homes were designed by and are available from award-winning architects, Lake | Flato Architects and Shiflet Group Architects. The plans call for an approximately 4,500 – 5,500 sq. ft custom-home, but a much larger home could be built, if desired. Continue with one of these architects or bring your own creative vision knowing that you have the freedom and flexibility to build your own compound as you prefer without overly cumbersome building restrictions. Offered at $3,400,000.
