The term "entertainer's paradise" is sometimes an exaggeration, but the descriptor couldn't be more appropriate in the case of 2803 Pearce Rd. Not only does the main home have nearly 8,000 square feet of custom-designed and architecturally stunning living space, but the property also includes a party deck, an oversized boat dock, a fire pit, a private beach, and a fully equipped guest house.
But before heading outside to enjoy the 100 feet of waterfront that crowns the secluded half-acre lot, let's first explore the interior. Originally built in 2007 but remodeled in 2016, the home is filled with such high-end details as hand-carved doors, double-arch ceilings, and imported stone.
Built-in closet cabinetry is standard in each of the bedroom suites, and there are a total of eight bathrooms. Five living areas include a game room that could almost double as another house, since its nearly 800 square feet includes a full kitchen and 30-foot fireplace.
That's one of four total fireplaces found throughout the estate, and one of three full gourmet kitchens (commercial-grade appliances are, of course, used in each). Need somewhere to store the wine for all those dinner parties you'll surely be hosting? A temperature-controlled wine room has a 270-bottle capacity.
Between the main home and the guest house, there are more than 35 windows that capture views of the surrounding water and multiple cliffs. Nature also works for the house, as its green construction includes a geothermal HVAC system that's cooled by the waters of Lake Austin.
Gorgeous pecan and oak trees shade the property, onto which armadillos, deer, roadrunners, foxes, and turkeys often wander from the nearby protected green space. Swans swim up to the home's seawall twice a day, and you'll also spot sporty lake enthusiasts tubing, surfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, paddle boarding, and riding wave runners.
Multiple walking trails, dog-friendly parks, and birding opps are just steps from the front door, along with a rare, public, world-class motorcross and mountain biking competition trail. And if that wasn't enough, take a break to enjoy some live music and a cold beverage at the nearby Ski Shores Restaurant, an Austin icon.
An oversized, four-car-plus garage has high ceilings and commercial-height garage doors, which come in handy if you have an RV trailer to store. Car collectors, take note: steel beams are in place for overhead lift.
With all these idyllic outdoor amenities and surroundings, it's easy to forget that this home is so ideally located near Central Austin. This tree-lined and scenic drive provides direct access to RM 2222 and Highway 360, allowing you to drive north to the Domain or south to downtown while avoiding traffic on Mopac.
