Shiflet Group Architects was commissioned to design the newest guest cottage and air-conditioned oversized two-car garage built in the mid-2000s. Together with the original limestone cabin, a second historic home from the late 1800s relocated from downtown Austin, and the 3-car garage/barn, these structures create a compound that continues to serve as a gathering place for friends and family to celebrate special occasions, relax, unwind, and live with abandon.
Uniquely located within the jurisdiction of Travis County brings an incredibly LOW TAX rate and the unparalleled flexibility and freedom to custom-build your home using the architectural plans by award-winning Lake Flato Architects (will convey), renowned for their expertise in blending contemporary design with the natural environment. Collaborate with their visionary team to tailor the plans and bring your vision to life ensuring that every detail reflects your discerning taste and desire for uncompromising luxury. Shiflet Group Architects have also commissioned architectural plans.
Both plans call for an approximately 4,500 - 5,500 sq. ft custom home, but a much larger home could be built if desired. Continue with one of these architects or bring your own creative vision knowing that you have the freedom and flexibility to build your own compound as you prefer as it resides within Travis County jurisdiction.
Circa 1936, the Colliers created ten tracts along what was then the Colorado River. A group of Austin physicians learned of these tracts and, combined with their knowledge that Lake Travis would result from Mansfield Dam being built, bought the tracts because of their special location: flat building sites, deep water, significant height above the 714 spillway, and long sunset views.
The current plat encompasses two of the ten Collier tracts totaling 3.35 acres, which two families separately purchased in January 1938. One family built a quintessential Lake Travis limestone cabin that has been lovingly restored and updated without compromising the nostalgic elements that create great character and charm. The other family relocated a historic home from near 3rd and Nueces in downtown Austin to the property along what were dirt roads more than 80 years ago. Memorabilia from the families has been woven into the current interior design of the cabin and home including the wooden "guest log" and photos that evidence the many good times shared by family and guests from across the United States.
The property is fully fenced and has two combined tracts of land totaling 3.35 acres. It may be subdivided, however, the property is best suited for HNW individuals desiring privacy and the ability to build a custom home with multiple other structures.
