House in Austin, Texas, United States
Timeless Elegance on the Shores of Lake Austin
4104 Shimmering Cove is a spectacular waterfront estate in the gated community of Watersedge with approximately 200′ of prime Lake Austin waterfront, exceptional craftsmanship, privacy, and a luxury lifestyle with understated elegance that can be both casual and sophisticated no matter what the occasion.
Incredible attention to detail throughout the entire property by artisans from around the world create a thoughtful and authentic nod to the Spanish Colonial Revival style of architecture — most notably with Venetian plastered walls, groin-vault ceilings, and other architectural touches.
Behind the aesthetics is a highly engineered infrastructure with state-of-the-art technology including Control4® that conveniently controls all lighting, music, shades, and the front gates with the touch of a finger using a Smart Phone or one of the multiple control panels located throughout the property. Additionally, a sophisticated energy efficient geothermal system heats and cools the house.
The pool and spa were award-winning and featured in publications for both their engineering and striking aesthetic. The covered outdoor terrace has a kitchen and grill allowing for year-round use and enjoyment with complete with panoramic views of Lake Austin as the backdrop.
The Master Suite is inviting and well-appointed with a custom designed fireplace and Butted Glass Glazed windows that bring the outdoor elements into your living space. The Master Bathroom is nothing short of luxurious featuring a frameless glass steam shower, dual marble-topped vanities, and a Victoria and Albert soaking tub.
An additional bedroom on the main level is perfect for the guests you want to spoil with its own full bath and shower and direct access to the outdoor terrace and pool.
Three bedrooms upstairs each have en suite baths, additional laundry facilities, and a huge Game Room and Media Room with Surround Sound has amazing views of Lake Austin and is a guaranteed hot spot for the latest movie, a game of pool, or a cocktail from the built-in wet bar.
Although working at home seems contradictory living on Lake Austin in a resort-like home that beckons relaxation, sometimes it is unavoidable. Not to worry, however! You can host a conference call or meeting with ease and comfort surrounded by custom wood inlayed doors and bookshelves with a subtle, yet beautifully handcrafted ceiling that a skilled eye will take note of.
Life on Lake Austin would not be complete without the enjoyment of a 2-slip boathouse with hydraulic lifts and 2 jet ski lifts. The Boathouse is plumbed and prepped for future expansion into a detached Guest Casita if desired.
Whether it is the simplicity of everyday living on the lake, hosting a casual weekend BBQ with friends or a formal evening event, 4104 Shimmering Cove offers a unique balance of both comfort and enjoyment no matter what the occasion.
