This magnificent property inspired by Venetian villas that line the Grand Canal was meticulously crafted along 209 feet of Lake Austin waterfront. Nestled in the coveted gated community, the Island at Mount Bonnell Shores. Slightly under 12,000 feet, this home offers opulent Austin living, fit for an Italian aristocrat! The property features five-bedrooms and six & two half baths. Designed by Chas Architects and handcrafted by Sereno Homes, this Lake Austin estate takes its visual cues from elements that have for centuries signified the classic Venetian Gothic architecture: vaulted groined ceilings, Botticino Fiorito marble floors and columns, Grottesca style hand painted cabinets & doors, and manicured private gardens lined with rose bushes, shrubs, and stone benches. This home showcases a private master-wing, housing his and her offices with their own private sitting area. The master suite features a warm, inviting living space with a wood-beamed and paneled ceiling, a grand stone fireplace, his and her vanities & closets, and a breakfast bar. The gourmet kitchen is complete with five full commercial work spaces and the finest appliances, seamlessly integrated with the Venetian artistry. Entertaining guests is made simple with a full wet bar and wine room to house your favorite Italian wine collection. The second level includes additional sleeping, living and outdoor spaces. Experience the most luxurious outdoor living Austin has to offer with an infinity pool and spa, which are animated with intricate waterworks and romantic lighting. Enjoy each outdoor living space or prepare a wonderful Italian meal in the outdoor kitchen. The kitchen is tucked away in a two-story courtyard that leads you to a one bedroom casita with full amenities. Imagine riding a gondola through the canals of Venice as you make your way to Lake Austin by boat, made possible by two private enclosed boat slips.
