Overview

Photos and Description of the Paradise Cove vacation estate rental

10 Bedrooms, 10 Bathrooms. Main house sleeps 20. Guest house sleeps 5.

This spectacular estate perched on Lake Travis transcends the Hill Country near Lago Vista…whisking you off to a stately chateau in the heart of France. The column-flanked, tree-lined approach to the classic circular drive sets the stage for the grand home. See LINK for additional pictures at the bottom of our web site.

This 10 bedroom, 10 bathroom home sits on 12.6 acres with 800 feet of water front. Celebrating the natural stone of both Texas and France, the exterior and interior of the home features detailed stonework custom carved onsite by a French sculptor. Grand columns with custom Corinthian capitals, traditional stone balustrades and two-story waterfall adorn the entrance.

Before even entering the home, one’s eyes are drawn to the surroundings on which the house sits. Smooth lawns, formal plantings and spectacular lake views all add to the feeling of being at a European retreat.

An undeniable focal point of the entry is the large waterfall that flows from a massive window into a decorative pond, adding a soft ambient sound to the entrance.

Indoors, the waterfall continues as it enhances the formal living with the same waterfall ambiance, a step over river, and special lighting for the evenings.

Entry grandeur is continued inside the house, from the sweeping iron and stone staircases to the limestone arches, and dark-wood accented ceilings that carry you into the formal sunken living area. Creamy walls with stone accents and tumbled travertine floors create a cool, elegant feel, while a large two-story wall of windows captures remarkable views. An adjacent full service wet bar, and hidden wine cellar (with handcrafted stone walls) is perfectly located for service to the north-east outdoor terrace.

Escape to France itself from this covered terrace, with walls and ceilings cloaked in ivy. Ideal for relaxing evenings of indulging wine or retreating from the Texas sunlight, this terrace captures the best breezes and views, year-round.

Back indoors a formal dining room showcases mesquite-floors, a small European fireplace and plenty of windows to enjoy the views, it’s a perfect place to linger over a meal with friends.

Across the living room lies a study/office that transcends to an upstairs library. Custom maple paneling covers both the walls and ceiling, which features an iron-railed opening to the second story, flooding the room with light.

The kitchen is fit for a chef; warm natural-wood cabinets contrast beautifully with the limestone and granite accents. The spacious island holds an extra-large sink; an additional sink, high-end appliances and a huge walk-in pantry. An open breakfast bar allows the cook to chat with family at the adjacent breakfast room.

Retreat in luxury to the airy master bedroom, which enjoys lake views from every window. Cool nights call for a fire in the fireplace, while warm evenings invite a nightcap on the breezy private terrace. In the master bath, thoughtful details combine with elegant materials to make the space a pleasure. Two vanities plus a separate makeup counter allow room to spread out; a unique mirrored freestanding wall is an inspired touch. A glass wall encloses the oversized shower with 10 separate shower heads including an overhead rain can. Linger in the corner tub overlooking the vista, or splash in the walk-in travertine shower. No need to share closet space; huge his and hers closets with custom built-in storage mean everyone has plenty of room.

The lower level south wing accommodates four additional bedrooms, a billiards room, a full kitchen, family room, and exercise room. Two large bedrooms with walk-in closets and en-suite baths complete the second floor south wing.

While the inside is stunning, this home was designed to enjoy the extraordinary scenery outdoors. With sun decks and a crow’s nest balcony from the roof there is always a place to relax and feel the breeze.

Landscaped with a nod to a more formal time, the smooth, manicured lawns are accented with gracious walkways, cypress trees and a grand stone staircase leading down to the negative-edge pool. With the appearance of spilling in to Lake Travis, the pool is a breathtaking finale to the grounds.

Precisely situated and built to maximize the breeze and sun schedule, no detail has gone unnoted in this palatial estate. For those that enjoy European luxury at its finest and have the heart of a Texan, this incredible home offers the best of both worlds.

We have a boat dock that accommodates our 50 ft yacht and has plenty of space to tie jet skis or another boat.

We are here to accommodate you and offer concierge-like service to our guests! If you need something just ask.

Guests love to hire our chefs - they take care of everything for your dining pleasure.
