Lake Life – 6 Austin Homes on the Water
With summertime just around the corner, you may begin dreaming of mornings spent with bare feet dangling in the lake or afternoons filled with cool water splashing on your face while water skiing. Imagine if those moments were not dependent upon a summer vacation or weekend getaway though.
These lake homes by Austin Portfolio Real Estate offer the tranquility, slow speed of life, adventure and breathtaking views expected of living life on the water.
4104 Shimmering Cove is a spectacular waterfront estate in the gated community of Watersedge with approximately 200′ of prime Lake Austin waterfront, exceptional craftsmanship, privacy, and a luxury lifestyle with an understated elegance that can be both casual and sophisticated.
Life on Lake Austin would not be complete without the enjoyment of a 2-slip boathouse with hydraulic lifts and 2 jet ski lifts. The Boathouse is plumbed and prepped for future expansion into a detached Guest Casita if desired.
Whether it is the simplicity of everyday living on the lake, hosting a casual weekend BBQ with friends or a formal evening event, 4104 Shimmering Cove offers a unique balance of both comfort and enjoyment no matter what the occasion.
Beautifully positioned on 1.824 acres, this modern minimalist lakefront home was designed by Sean Guess and overlooks the lush beauty of Lake Austin. Creating a luxurious outdoor retreat, this home features a hot tub, fire pit, 221 feet of prime waterfront and a 2 slip boat dock with power lifts.
Green is nature’s neutral and it plays beautifully integrated into home décor and architecture. Today’s popular open spaces seamlessly connect interior and exterior spaces often through floor-to-ceiling windows or folding and sliding glass doors. “Adding Greenery through living walls, terrariums, botanically-themed wallpaper, paint, accent furniture and decor provides respite and breathing space. A Greenery-painted wall or piece of furniture delivers a pop of color, with the added benefit of creating the illusion of nature indoors.”
This magnificent waterfront estate sits on an extraordinary 2.8 acres overlooking the broad beauty of Lake Travis. Terraces provide panoramic sunset views across the negative-edge pool and lawn. At the waters edge sits a private boat dock with lift and room for 2 jet skis.

You’ll enjoy expansive views of Lake Austin from nearly every room in the house.
Situated on 7.5 acres of Lake Travis Waterfront, this truly one-of-a-kind custom home offers over 178 ft. of waterfront. By taking a short stroll down the groomed path through the towering oaks and Texas wildflowers, you’ll find yourself at the expansive and private Lake Travis waterfront.

Whether you’re cruising the lake or taking it easy with some rod and reel, this hassle-free lake lifestyle has something for everyone.
