It’s no secret that Austin has changed from a sleepy Texan college town into an international darling destination for the world’s elite. With this explosive evolution comes a housing market in which it’s increasingly common to see homes priced near $1 million. Still, even if what’s attainable for the average Austinite shrinks, it’s still worth chasing those caviar dreams and seeing what the top of the real estate list has to offer.

4904 Tortuga Place | $26,995,000

4904 Tortuga Pl, Austin, TX 78731
6 Bedrooms 6.5 bathrooms, 9,352 sqft

A stunning example of lake living by Shiflet Group Architects, 4904 Tortuga Place, is a prime example of how the rolling hills abutting the waters cement themselves as one of Austin’s dream home spots. The contemporary whites and picture frame windows do all they can to keep the focus on the natural splendor this lot has in spades. It could be mistaken for an impossible-to-book resort stay rather than somewhere you go home.

6 Bedrooms, 9.5 bathrooms,15,394 sqft

There are lake houses, and there are lake palaces. 12842 Hughes Park Road is dubbed Villa Del Lago, and the Mediterranean fantasy comes alive when you cross over your cascading waterfall(?!). The stunning views are almost overshadowed by the detailed amenities that dot the hillside grounds, like the gargoyle-guarded grotto or the grand fireplace centering the personal pavilion. All that’s missing is a royal title.

Designed in 1938 by Roy L. Thomas, The Bohn Home is a rare art deco gem in Austin’s real estate crown. Despite her age, there is a timeless beauty both inside and out of this masterpiece mansion in Pemberton Heights. There’s a refreshing sense of vibrant life once inside, and the renovation done by Dick Clark and Associates brings the property into the 21st century with a proper eye of respect for the home’s past. While the yard boasts views towards downtown, no one can blame you if you only ever look at the house itself.
