Where to begin with this unparalleled, one-of-a-kind lake home? Driving up to the impressive estate, its gated entrance and Austin stone exterior will leave you speechless, a phenomenon that continues as you step inside.

Imagine bringing family together in the home’s huge, light-filled rooms with never-ending lake views and passing down recipes to grandkids in the expansive gourmet kitchen.

Like any Tuscan home, the villa brings people together around food and sunshine. Cooking with loved ones in the outdoor kitchen, complete with a grill, refrigerator, icemaker, and more, will quickly put you in vacation mode.

Create divine summer dishes and refreshing drinks, then enjoy dining al fresco on the tiered patios. If the kids aren’t ready to end their adventures on the pool slide, play fort, or zip line, you can watch them have a ball as you catch up with old friends.

With panoramic views of the lake always in sight, you’ll never need to go on long travels to find paradise. It’s resort living, but better, because it’s home.

Swim under the pool’s cascading waterfalls or bring a cooler to the double-deck boat dock for a sunset ride on the water. You can keep the party going later by making s’mores at the fire pit or stargazing in the spa.

Weather will never put a damper on your day since the 9,528-square-foot villa is filled to the brim with enchanting spaces. Cozy up in the grand room for a few rounds of charades or head to the lower floor for, quite literally, a new level of luxury.

Walk through a mystical stone hallway with lanterns to find the vast indoor game and media room, with a kitchen perfectly situated for mid-movie snacks. If you’re in the mood for something more engaging, the charming wine room is ideal for impromptu tastings. 

Retiring for the evening is just as lavish. The main house has two principal suites and two more bedrooms, but can sleep 20 people — a fact kids will absolutely love. The guesthouse offers an additional, secluded bedroom so friends and family can enjoy visiting with a healthy dose of privacy.
