AUSTIN (July 8, 2016)— Dave Murray of DMTX Realty with Coldwell Banker United, REALTORS’s Northwest Austin office has listed Acqua Villa on Lake Travis for $4.995 million. Located at 1415 Ridgetop Terrace in Austin, the custom-built, three-level estate spans 8,800 square feet and features five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a separate guest house, adjustable boat dock, six-car garage and infinity edge pool with dual hot tubs.  The property is owned by Milton Verret, philanthropist and founder of the US Money Reserve, one of the nation’s largest distributors of U.S. Government-issued gold, silver and platinum coins.

“This luxurious waterfront estate is a great deal compared to similar properties on Lake Austin,” said Murray. “The home is located on the deep water portion of Lake Travis, and there was plenty of water even when the lake hit its lowest levels. And the view is incredible, even rivaling the one at The Oasis.”

Designed by award-winning architect, Winn Wittman in 2010, Acqua Villa’s signature is its breezeway in the center of the home, which frames the view of Lake Travis and hill country. Many design elements of the home are meant to maximize energy efficiency, like the powder-coated aluminum panels with fleur de lis designs that shade the windows on the front of the residence. The home is brimming with smart home technology like iPad controlled fiber optic light installations, surveillance cameras and sun shades. 

The home’s entryway opens up to the living room with soaring ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows providing a direct view of the Lake. Beyond the living room is a gourmet kitchen with caesarstone countertops and floors, stainless steel appliances and bar open up to views of the waterfront. Upstairs, the spacious master suite features a walk-in closet, balcony overlooking the water and master bath with oversized jetted tub, steam showed and dual vanities. All three levels are accessible by elevator.

Acqua Villa’s outdoor entertainment areas feature a sprawling sun deck, balconies on all three levels of the home and an infinity-edge pool flanked by a glass fence. Other amenities include a pool house with kitchenette and cryotherapy spa, separate guest house and six-car garage.  On the water, an adjustable boat dock and slip can accommodate a 42-foot boat, as well as two amps for wave runners.
