Magnificent lake house retreat set on a hillside overlooking Lake Travis

This spectacular lake house retreat was designed as a family vacation home by Dick Clark + Associates, nestled on a hillside overlooking Lake Travis, in AustinTexas. Built as an 8,000 square foot retreat for the whole family, which encompasses parents with three kids in their twenties, to get together and spend time together from their busy daily lives. After careful deliberation, the chosen style of the home was clean and modern, planned out as an H-shape with two separate wings for public and private zones. Clerestory windows allows light to penetrate the spaces while at the same time giving privacy from neighboring homes.

The north side of structure is open to the lake to take in the magnificent views. A hallway with sliding glass panels can be opened to the outdoors, which intersects a central courtyard and leads to the bedrooms, which has pool and patio views. The home juts out towards the lake with a deck that includes a jacuzzi, cantilevering over the lake, which is 80 feet below. A tram allows access to the water from this point. Golden limestone saturates the exterior courtyards as well as the interior passageways. Another special feature with a modern appeal to the home was a copper clad elevated fitness room with a butterfly roof.

Working closely with Karen Hall Interior Design for the interior selections of this lake house retreat, the color palette started with art selections for the wall, and then they drew off of that. Mostly abstract works were chosen, in keeping with the clean lines and contemporary nuances. Designer modern furnishings were mixed with more comfortable pieces, all of which needed to be durable and stand up staining. Therefore, finishes of leather, textured cotton and area rugs comprised of silk or wool were selected. The end result was an inviting and uncluttered atmosphere that doesn’t interrupt the unparalleled lake views.
