Lake Austin Waterfront

12021 Selma Hughes Park, Austin, Texas, United States, 78732

Inspired by the grandeur and opulence of the “Cottage” Mansions at the turn of the century in Newport, Rhode Island, this grand Lake Austin waterfront estate replicates those summer havens that became social and architectural landmarks for the aristocracy of the Gilded Age.  History buffs will delight in every detail of the design and craftsmanship of “The Breakers”, named for the grandest of these mansions and a symbol of the Vanderbilt family’s social and financial preeminence.  Modeling that character, the seller orchestrated the work of a team of craftsmen and artisans to create this masterpiece.

Weaving similar historical and architectural elements and design inspired by the French and Italian Renaissance.  Created to be timeless in design and appearance, French, Italian and some Asian influence are found throughout.  Every effort was made to use the best quality and the finest and most authentic materials available in the world.  The owner, an experienced home builder, was intimately involved with every aspect of the design and construction and personally managed all aspects of the three year building process.  The result, a true masterpiece.

While the home can be very formal, hosting elegant dinner parties, concerts, charity events, or the finest soiree, the home really lives casually on a day to day basis accommodating every desire for leisure activities.  Family members and guests can enjoy a casual supper together in the very European kitchen while sipping wine from the cellar or cruise up the river to enjoy the sunset.  Everyone enjoys watching birds soar over the limestone hills or over the lake while enjoying drinks in the swim up bar or a burger cooked and served from the summer kitchen.

Cooks rejoice in the bounty of the vineyard and the ample spaces to grow herbs and vegetables.  When it is time to work, ample office space provides a place for staff, conferences and meetings with every convenience, even overnight accommodation in the guest house or apartment.  This spectacular waterfront estate has become an Austin landmark surrounded by 200 year old Pecan trees on the most gorgeous and private stretch of Lake Austin.
