Location, Location, LOCATION!!!
We are in beautiful Austin Texas and THE closest you can get to downtown Austin on Lake Travis (20 minutes) We are 28 miles from Austin Bergstrom International Airport.. (see map) and 30 miles from Circuit of the Americas (Formula One-F1). We are near everything you need (grocery, shopping, restaurants, entertainment). Lake Travis is 65 miles long and encompasses many outlining areas of Austin. We are close to everything! No driving down long, dangerous winding roads to get to us!
This luxury Lake Travis waterfront estate sits 80 feet above the lake (elevator/tram to the water) creating breathtaking views from every room. Resort style negative edge pool with swim-up bar, swim lane and 'beach area' for smaller kiddos. Outdoor kitchen by the pool (sink, full fridge, BBQ grill) as well as a pool bathroom with air conditioned changing room.
Large covered deck with fireplace overlooking the pool and lake and a sun deck above. Property is completely 'walled' with security gate at entrance. 2+ acres with plenty of parking. Walk through the doors and down the hall to a 180 degree lake view that will take your breath away! This estate sits on the south shore of the main basin with NO LOW WATER issues! (the lake is still 80-100' deep in front of the home.
We have a boat dock that you can tie jet-ski's or a boat up to. Again, we are not in a cove, so we have plenty of water in front of our house. Our dock sits in 40-50' of water even when lake levels are at their lowest. If you are looking for lake front, this is very important! There is no scaling down rocks or climbing dangerously to the dock. We have a tram that takes you most of the way and then new stairs that lead straight to the bridge of the dock.
Experience the gorgeous sunsets from the pool, decks, dock, or house without the sun glaring directly towards you (home faces N/S).
There's a movie theater that seats 8-10 with recliners (also with floor space and bean bags). A large 120' screen with surround sound, the screen retracts to reveal a karaoke/performance stage complete with drum set, amps and mics!
Free Wi-Fi throughout the home as well as by the pool. Cable TV to watch your favorite game or movie on the big screen.
This estate is excellent for entertaining and has plenty of indoor/outdoor space for guests (and parking).
The main house has 6 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and is 5100 sq. ft. and the guesthouse has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths (each room in GH has an en suite bath) and is 1,727 sq. ft. They can be rented together or separately.

About Summer Bell
This is our custom dream home that we designed and (re)built paying attention to every detail. We love to entertain and have friends and family over, so we designed it with that in mind. You'll leave here noticing every detail that we have put into our home. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we have!
Summer Bell purchased this house in 2004
Why Summer Bell chose Lower Basin Lake Travis
We have lived in Austin since 1999. We built this custom home as our dream home in 2005. Tony is a Mechanical Engineer turned home designer/builder and I am the Property Manager, co-owner of Villa De Suenos as well as the Co-Director/Founder of a private STEM school in Austin. I am also a full-time mom to our 8 year old daughter. Tony and I personally manage all aspects of our property and rental.
What makes this house unique
It's the best location in Austin! And Austin is the best city in Texas! You have all the conveniences of Austin and it's THE closest to downtown that you can get on Lake Travis. We love this part of Austin because it has so much to offer and we love the hills and views. We have horses 2 miniatures, 1 pony and 2 full-size as well as laying hens for 'farm fresh' eggs. We enjoy boating on lake travis (wakeboarding, tubing and wake-surfing).
