AUCTION: Bid May 25-31. Currently Listed for $13.5M. No Reserve. Showings Daily 1-4pm & by Appointment. Experience the irresistible magic of the Retreat at Lick Creek. Seated on a peninsula overlooking the Pedernales River, the estate offers a breathtaking view of the river and verdant Texas Hill Country surrounding. The architecture is a true work of art by famed Austin architect John Covert Watson. The design of the retreat makes an iconic visual statement, appearing from aerial view to resemble a deck of cards splayed out across the lush Hill Country. Grand expanses of glass, locally-harvested wood, towering steel beams, and a distinctive hyperbolic paraboloid roof are sure to inspire awe from first look. The spacious guest lodge welcomes you to the estate, with a winding path through the natural landscape ending at the main residence. Throughout, a careful balance between grand entertaining spaces intended for crowds of any size, and intimate enclaves for smaller gatherings ensure the estate is well-suited for use as an executive retreat or personal getaway. Inside the main residence, a skylight soars above the foyer and media hall, drenching the space in natural light. Venture upstairs to the massive upper deck for a front-row view to breathtaking sunsets. Outdoors, a walkway meticulously crafted of Ipe wood leads to a waterfall and private grotto, with limestone cliff and spacious sundeck at the ready for endless pool-side afternoons. Every inch of this breathtaking oasis exudes luxury and offers an experience beyond compare. Price change due to new inclusion of additional acreage.
