Property Description

Step into a piece of history. This beautifully restored 1930s cottage is a treasure, originally built
in Old West Austin and relocated in 2005 to its current perch on the shores of Lake Buchanan.
This timeless gem has been thoughtfully restored with modern conveniences, ensuring a
seamless blend of old-world charm and contemporary comfort.
Nestled at the end of a picturesque peninsula, this cottage sits on a generous .66-acre lot that
offers privacy and elbow room. Cast your line into one of the best fishing spots on the lake
directly from the bank or from your kayak or launch your boat at the deep-water boat launch just
minutes from the property. After a day of fishing or boating, enjoy a spectacular sunset on the
spacious deck overlooking the lake and then gather around the fire pit under the starlit sky.
When the lake is full, a protected cove for swimming is just steps away. When the lake is low,
your open water views remain, and there is additional shoreline to explore.
This turnkey property balances vintage charm with modern comforts. Original features like built-
in cabinetry, glass doorknobs, and oak hardwood floors evoke nostalgia. Large original windows
offer stunning lake views from every room. The pier and beam foundation, electrical, and
plumbing were rebuilt in the 2005 move. A skilled stonemason rebuilt the original limestone
exterior siding, the wood-burning fireplace, and added a quartz stone outdoor shower. The
home is served by an underground propane tank, a septic system, a well and water softener,
with updated roofing, HVAC, and appliances. Plus, broadband internet keeps you connected.
The cottage is available fully furnished, making it ready for immediate occupancy and
enjoyment. Whether you are looking for a weekend retreat, a permanent residence, or a short-
term rental opportunity, this charming cottage on Lake Buchanan offers the perfect blend of
history, comfort, and natural beauty. Schedule your viewing today!
