Italian-inspired villa offers panoramic Lake Travis views for just under $10 million
This waterfront beauty brings a luxurious taste of Italy to Spicewood, Texas. The 12,000-square-foot Villa La Isla, situated in the Angel Bay community, is as immaculate as it is expansive. In addition to five bedrooms and eight bathrooms, the home features an impressive six living areas and three dining areas — and no detail is overlooked. (But don't take our word for it; just watch the video above to see all of the estate's details.)
Outside the home, you'll be drawn to details such as Italian barrel tile, copper chimney caps, downspouts and gas lamps, as well as a manicured courtyard and six-foot water feature. The interior impresses with a two-story groin vaulted vestibule, handmade mosaic floor medallions, Bethlehem stone floors, Venetian plaster walls, antique and custom light fixtures, crystal chandeliers, a tile barrel ceiling in the formal dining and soaring beamed ceilings.
If that's not enough, a private gym, spectacular media room and wine cellar are perfect for entertaining as well as everyday living.
But the true beauty of this estate is found in its panoramic views of Lake Travis and the Hill Country. Situated on almost three acres of prime waterfront real estate, Villa La Isla is a luxury escape with an infinity pool, sunken fire pit and endless outdoor entertaining options.
Built by renowned architect Charles Travis and Austin’s premier builder, Greg Hurd of Sereno Homes, the home is listed by Stephanie Nick of Kuper Sotheby's International Realty for $9,995,000.
