Located on its own peninsula on Lake Travis, 16009 Chateau is a waterfront lot that boat lover’s should be keeping their eye on. Sitting a just over 1 and a quarter acres, the lot features privacy, established oak trees, views of Lake Travis on all sides, marina access, and most of all, a clean slate on which you can build the home of your dreams. Coming in at $449k per acre, this lot is prime real estate and will not be available for long.
As a single lot, 16009 Chateau sits on a secluded cul-de-sac behind a gated entry at the Vineyard Bay subdivision. The lot itself can be described as wooded, with aged oaks dotting the property and mostly level. It sits on a small peninsula that extends west into Lake Travis and can be accessed by the major thoroughfare, FM 620, making it a relatively quick drive to nearby shopping, dining, and other destinations such as Downtown Austin and Austin-Bergstrom Airport.
Perhaps the most appealing aspect of this Lake Travis waterfront lot is the location. Situated in the highly-coveted 78734 zip code, 16009 Chateau straddles the line between Westlake and Lakeway. But really, you’ll say you’re from Vineyard Bay, an exclusive and prominent subdivision of the area. Accessed from FM 620, you’ll head west on Chateau Road, through the elegant subdivision gate and past your future neighbors, all who will be a little bit jealous that you got the property at the end of the street on the water. ;)
If you’re wondering what kind of house you can build there, it’s really up to you. While approval is required by the HOA, any savvy home buyer will be well aware of what they’re going for. The majority of the homes in Vineyard Bay are estate-style, luxury properties, ranging from 4,000 to 8,000 square feet. For the size of the lot, you’ll have a lot more to work with than many of your neighbors. Pools are not uncommon and neither are 6+ bedroom builds. With a wide range of architectural styles, everything from ranch-style to modern homes will fit the bill.
The property comes with plenty of amenities. Notably, owners will have a dedicated boat slip at the Vineyard Bay marina, which is only a short walk from the property. Because of Vineyard Bay’s very active HOA, homeowners also have access to community perks, such as the aforementioned marina, tennis courts, sports courts, fitness facilities, community pools with a cabana, parks, and playgrounds. Electricity is available on the lot, but owners will need to install septic for their home.
