The lowdown: Experience the best of both worlds with this charming custom property, which is located close to town but feels miles away. The home is beautifully updated and provides a country lifestyle, along with exemplary schools, all within an easy drive to the Domain, downtown, and both Lake Austin and Lake Travis. This is the ideal home for those craving an outdoor lifestyle. Relax in the hot tub while you enjoy the peaceful surroundings of this wooded, two-acre estate with Hill Country views, plenty of privacy, and lots of wildlife.
Entertain friends and family on the newly renovated stone deck with a pergola, or escape the Texas heat in the natural pond-inspired swimming pool. A terraced organic garden, critter-proof chicken coop, beekeeping setup, and fenced dog run complete the backyard oasis. Weekend projects can be tackled in the spacious garage workshop, storage shed, or air-conditioned sunroom addition. Take a stroll down the nature trail to the back of the property, dip your toes in the wet-weather creek, watch the sunset, and finish your evening at the patio's fire pit.
Glenlake is also just a few minutes away from some amazing area amenities, including Emma Long Metropolitan Park (that has a boat launch, camping, picnic areas, swim area, sand volleyball and basketball courts, and RV hookups); Turkey Creek Nature Trail; and Austin Archery Club archery range. Residents of the neighborhood are authorized to use River Place Woodlands Park on Lake Austin, which comes with a party pavilion, tennis courts, playground, soccer fields, and a pond.
