Award-winning $ 39 million property overlooking Lake Austin
From Linde Hyder – On a quiet cove overlooking the scenic shores of Lake Austin sits one of the most famous and sought-after properties in the area. Bounded on three sides by water and having a main lake side of 665 feet, this offering covers 8.8 acres, making it one of the largest remaining packages in Austin. Surrounded by lush, mature landscapes with graceful weeping willows, ‘Willow Beach’ offers the opportunity to own an extraordinary residence that is unmatched in terms of design, acreage, facade and privacy.
The almost 7,000 square meter main building has been an architectural masterpiece for 11 years and has received numerous national and international awards for its productive design and outstanding craftsmanship. The spacious, open building is designed in harmony with nature and has large glass surfaces that fill every room with plenty of natural light and at the same time offer a peaceful view of the lake and the lagoon.
Specially quarried, roughly cut limestone characterizes the exterior facade, while the interior has an exquisite array of notable features. The sink in the powder room is carved from rare black limestone, handpicked by homeowners in Italy, and the stove is made of book-matched stone. A cantilevered hidden staircase leads to a room on the second level, and a 1,000-square-foot room is surrounded by glass on either side.
Outside, an award-winning footbridge leads guests to an equally impressive 2,410 square meter guest house made from Brazilian Ipe wood.
Located less than eight miles from downtown Austin in a desirable school district, Willow Beach is alone in both construction and area. “I’ve been in real estate for 20 years and can honestly say that there is no other property as iconic as Willow Beach,” explains Listing Agent Kathryn Scarborough. “That is tranquility at its best.”
Kathryn is the fifth generation based in Austin and has been consistently recognized for her outstanding sales production in the luxury segment.

Her enthusiasm for Austin is evident in her extensive community involvement. “That’s what makes Austin so unique,” says Kathryn.
