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.
