The lowdown: When your home sits on nearly 200 feet of Lake Austin waterfront, it's not a stretch to model it after the historic villas that line the Grand Canal in Venice. Also known as Villa Ca’ Isola Serena, this magnificent estate features such artistic details as vaulted groined ceilings, marble floors and columns, custom Murano glass chandeliers, Grottesca-style hand-painted panels and doors, built-in china cabinets, doors and windows imported from Italy, Italian iron railings and hardware, hand-painted frescos, and wood details and finishes. Several covered terraces; an outdoor kitchen; infinity pool and spa; and two private, enclosed boat slips make outdoor living just as luxurious as the indoors.
