Grand Italian Million Dollar Estate with Waterfront View
A rare opportunity to live in a work of art, this Grand Italian Palazzo on Lake Travis was fashioned after Andrea Palladio’s famous “Villa Rotunda” in Vicenza, Italy. This romantic palazzo has 9,760 sq. ft. of museum quality construction and showcases classic Italian architecture with rich mahogany, imported Italian tile and Carrara marble throughout. Resting on a private, 16-acre waterfront, hill-top peninsula overlooking Lake Travis, the first view of this palatial estate is captured from an awe-inspiring stone-and-grass drive lined with ivy-covered walls. Looking down from the hillcrest drive, the villa’s bold silhouette stands out magnificently against the calm, blue waters of the lake. With 8 bedrooms, 9 baths, and 8 living areas, and staying true to Palladio’s original “Villa Rotunda” concept, which was laid out in a symmetrical axis with archways leading to complimentary wings and loggias.
