Designed by Austin architect Robert Jackson and built in 1994, this unique home on Lake Travis illustrates broadly a Hill Country contemporary home style, but includes features that defy categorization, too.

While rustic rock walls and shady gardens in front create an almost tropical effect, the home opens into a bright great room with a wall of windows looking out on to the lake and bringing in plenty of light.

With soaring ceilings, light hardwood floors, and open kitchen, dining, and living areas, the 3,922-square-foot home incorporates eclectic features for a homey, casual feel befitting a lake house.

The home has four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, including a guest/bonus bedroom with a pulldown Murphy bed. (It looks like there is a second bedroom with a Murphy bed as well as one with a loft space.)

The kitchen is open to the living and dining areas, including the house’s fireplace.

Located on a 0.86-acre lot with mature trees and access to a boat dock, the property also has an electric-car charging station.

There’s also a private office and a spacious master suite with separate tub and walk-in shower.

The property has tranquil covered porches and decks for enjoying the view, as well as more arty, rustic spots hanging out in the garden or admiring the rainwater collection system.
