Lakeshore Drive, Estate of the Day
We were recently in Austin, Texas to check out another Lake Austin property, the home of Andy Roddick, now were are back for another gorgeous lakefront home that belongs to a young success story. Today's home is owned by 31-year-old Douglas Jaffe, III, CEO of Horseshoe Bay Resort in the Texas Hill Country, which is owned by his prominent San Antonio-based family.
This home is a six-bedroom property that was renovated a few years ago, giving it a sleek, contemporary feel. Outside there are terraces with lake and city views, a negative-edge pool that cascades over the bluff into Lake Austin, and a lakeside lawn leading to the water's edge where the home has 100 feet of waterfront and a dock. A three-car glass-front garage also has additional guest quarters with a kitchen and bath. Other features include an exercise room, a media room, a game room with a wet bar and a master bedroom that has a fireplace, walk-in closet and dressing room. This home is listed at $3.995 million.
