Lake Austin, Texas
Price: $5.9 million
Baths: 5 and 2 halfs
Square feet: 7,110
Description: This modern masterpiece on eight acres overlooks Lake Austin and the Texas Hill country, yet lies just minutes from downtown Austin. Step right out of the family room, stroll down a double stone stairway beside a little waterfall and you arrive at a lovely negative edge pool that seems to drop right off into the lake far below.
Indoors is an open entertaining area where glass walls give guests wide-open views. The house is designed with two separate wings - one of which contains the master suite, the other guest bedrooms - to maximize peace and privacy.
There are also two fireplaces, a chef's kitchen with pantry, high-end appliances, cabinets and countertops, plus a home theater. There are lots of wood-paneled walls, spot-lighting and marble touches.
