Property Description

Welcome to your waterfront sanctuary at Back of the Moon on Lake Travis. This gated community consists of 5 homes (1 is a guest house shared by the 4 properties) on 25 acres with 400' of waterfront on the lake with a private boat dock of 4 covered slips. The grounds feature a vast grassy slope of open spaces shaded by heritage oaks. In the center there is a fountain/waterfall that creates a rambling river down to a trellis seating area overlooking a pond & the lakefront. No. 5242 - lot 4 is just less than 6 acres reaching out to the Colorado River offering a 2,591 sq. ft. main house designed by world renowned architect & author - Christopher Alexander. The approach to this unique home is so warm & inviting that you start to relax the moment you get out of your vehicle. Once inside you will have a feeling of belonging to a place & structure - a special quality of "wholeness" as the architect would say. A folksy design flows throughout with the show stopper clearly being the incredible beamed ceilings in the living, dining & kitchen. The windows & trim provide an abundance of natural light adding to the richness. A favorite of most visitors is the expansive tree top deck off the primary bedroom which evokes a feeling of tree fort whimsy. In addition there is a charming 1,188 sq. ft. garage apartment with 2 beds, 1 bath & an open concept kitchen, dining & living room offering a breathtaking view of the lake. Below is a 1st story bonus room/bathroom perfect for an artist studio or an overflow entertainment space. Never run out of room with reservations at the private 3 bedroom guest house near the lake with a classic camp like vibe. Residents also enjoy a 32 acre gated park at Travis Landing with playground, picnic areas, boat ramp & dock .Come experience what the ultimate lake living environment can be with unparalleled privacy, tranquility & enjoyment. It can only be found at Back of the Moon.
