This Rare, Secluded Lake Austin Luxury Estate Is Both Modern and Timeless

How much? If you have to ask ...

It's hard to know where to start with this extremely rare listing: a 12.93-acre, walled estate that fronts Lake Austin and is both secluded and conveniently planted in Tarrytown. On the market for the first time in 50 years, the generational property features a five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home built in the 1960s, perfectly sited under a lush canopy of trees.

The mature foliage and traces of Texas history found on the grounds (including a 19th-century lime kiln) work beautifully with the 5,170-square-foot home, a traditional-modernist blend that received coverage in Architectural Digest and The Los Angeles Times during its 1960s heydey; a 1964 Austin American-Statesman article christened the estate "Paradise Found." The home's very specific blend of 1960s modernism and American-styled opulence is instantly recognizable and intact here, with much of that combination alive in the many extant details of its time.

What's the price on this American beauty? For that, you have to ask.
