House of the Day: Perfect Views With a House to Match

You already know we're a sucker for the waterfront views (and judging from all the Facebook comments we get on our beachfront properties, so are you). But it's rare to find a waterfront property that has the architecture, design and decor to match its views.

We think we found one, though. We won't even gush about how incredible that view is, because that's obvious. But we will say this: It's one heck of a house. This $4 million country estate in Austin, Texas. sprawls over 6,500 square feet and is located on 1.5 acres of gorgeous greenery.

It boasts covered and uncovered decks and patios, a private boat dock accessible by elevator, a pool, and a cabana with a bar and fireplace (seriously now). Peppered across the grounds you'll find beautiful decorative ponds with waterfalls, flanked by soaring trees. There's even a tire swing!

Inside the three-story home, you'll find six bedrooms, six bathrooms, vaulted ceilings and four fireplaces. There's also an abundance of outdoor living areas for dining al fresco. Decor is classy and tasteful, featuring lots of dark wood and vintage-style pieces blended with more luxe modern items.

Celeste Messer of Adkor Realty has the listing.
