Located on Lake Travis, this 1,500 square foot modern treehouse was designed to be a comfortable cabin retreat taking advantage of beautiful waterfront views. The initial structural design concept of the home developed as a result of the property being located in a flood plain. Therefore, the main living area was designed on the second floor and is cantilevered on all four sides over the two single car garages below, giving the modern cabin a treehouse façade.

In order to incorporate 3 bedrooms and 3 baths while maintaining large living areas for entertaining, the design forgoes a foyer, large closets, traditional staircase and long hallways. The design accommodates guests by providing privacy with separation of bedroom areas and offers ample storage for guest’s belongings with benches in the bedrooms and large vanity areas in the bathrooms. The kitchen and outdoor living areas were designed to entertain large groups, with a 5x9 foot kitchen island and a sectional seating area and fire table accommodating up to 10 people. A large 18x9 foot sliding glass door helps merge the indoor and outdoor living areas. Below, one of the garages is designed to house a car, paddle boards and a golf cart while the other garage serves as an entertainment area with a TV, pool table, ping pong, and shuffleboard.

Two great features in the home are the versatile loft bedroom and the screened-in porch downstairs. The loft is a unique getaway which incorporates a home office space with a balcony overlooking the living area below. The screened-in porch houses the wet bar, grill and the outside dining area making it the perfect hub for entertaining.

This modern treehouse is a cozy, yet spacious second home retreat perfect for a relaxing getaway as well as entertaining guests on the shores of Lake Travis.
