Located 3 miles from downtown and a half-mile from Lake Austin, this remodeled estate has a gorgeous pool, pickleball court, and multiple kitchens and living areas."[This Austin home] had charm," writes Lady Bird Johnson in her oral history book, "and was a happy part of our lives for a good many years."INSIDE LBJ’S ESTATEThis Estate underwent a large-scale renovation, completed in May 2015. The flawless interior features two living areas, two full kitchens, and separate entrances to each area -- an ideal set-up for company retreats, multi-family getaways, reunions, or any situation where time together AND personal space are important.Reserve the formal living area for cocktails and conversation (or coffee and strategizing).

Keep snacks and drinks handy, or use it to supplement the main kitchen when preparing a big feast.A truly spectacular outdoor area was designed for entertaining with a professional-quality pickleball court with LED lighting, a pristine swimming pool, and a complete outdoor kitchen.The outdoor pool, tennis court, and basketball court can only be used during 9am - 10pm.BEDROOMSUp to 12 people can sleep in six bedrooms, which include two expansive master suites with king beds, flat-screen TVs, and luxurious attached bathrooms.
