The new Lake Austin residential community will be distinguished by its modern architecture, private waterfront access, unmatched amenities, and dedicated Four Seasons staff who will exclusively manage every aspect of the property’s luxury service offering. Hines will lead the development team and manage the project’s construction. Surrounded by 2,000 acres (800 hectares) of expansive green space, the private enclave is situated 20 minutes from downtown Austin, but feels worlds apart—with protected panoramic views of the lake, Pennybacker Bridge, PGA golf course, and downtown skyline.
Ideally positioned on a secluded hill above a 90-degree bend in the lake, the 145-acre community’s altitude and endless backdrops contribute to a heightened sense of privacy and beauty. With a deep commitment to land stewardship, the developers of the project will implement a new city-approved plan that includes 90 acres of preserve and parkland, turns a scenic overlook into a public park, and preserves more than 2,000 feet of shoreline from development.
In the spirit of the greatest works of modernist architecture that remain coveted today, Four Seasons Private Residences Lake Austin is designed to endure. The project’s design ethos is grounded in the belief that great design and forward-thinking technologies will improve one’s quality of life. Perched atop the descending hillside, the community’s 179 residences will capture expansive views from 280 to 380 feet above Lake Austin.
Crafted for the utmost comfort, privacy and convenience, the homes include large outdoor terraces and a floor-through experience that seamlessly blends the indoors and out. Most homes have semi-private lobbies, with only one other residence on the same floor. Offerings range from 1,900 square-foot pieds-à-terre, to four-bedroom residences with gardens and pools, and large penthouses with 3,000-square-foot terraces and 40-foot pools.
A bucolic Garden Plaza anchors Four Seasons Private Residences Lake Austin, connecting the residences to incredible amenities and experiences managed by Four Seasons. Residents and their guests will access private wellness, spa, beauty, and athletic experiences through The Orangerie—a serene, indoor garden with an 82-foot indoor pool and ample room for movement, yoga, and meditation.
The Athletic Center will encompass 60,000 square feet with private training rooms, two golf simulators, two squash courts, a full-size indoor basketball court, an indoor clay tennis court, an outdoor tennis court, four dedicated indoor pickleball courts, and a children’s gym and play area. The Spa will feature hot and cold plunge pools, private treatment rooms, sauna and steam facilities in both locker rooms, and a beauty salon.
The Clubhouse on the corner overlooking the 90-degree bend in the lake includes a 300-foot infinity-edge pool with three lounging and swimming zones tailored for adults and families, adjacent to a game room and private cabanas. Equipped with an infinite contrast, high-resolution, 60-foot-wide Samsung Onyx Cinema LED screen, The Theater and Theater Lounge will be a premier venue for viewing films, concerts, lectures, and sporting events. Its rear wall has been designed to open to the Theater Lounge above—creating a mezzanine-like experience for resident gatherings and private events.
With its signature approach to culinary arts—a prominent element of Four Seasons legendary hospitality—the dining experience at Four Seasons Private Residences Lake Austin will be crafted exclusively for residents and their families and guests. With floor-to-ceiling windows, the private, two-storey restaurant will pair a spirited community experience with dedicated private spaces. While booths will provide intimate seating on the main level, the second level will hold three private dining rooms and a separate chef’s kitchen that may be reserved for special celebrations. A more casual cafe will also serve inspired, everyday essentials such as artisanal brews, fresh bread, and pastries.
Designed for effortless access from the Garden Plaza to the lake, a two-minute Funicular descent to The Marina and The Lake Clubhouse will present a panoramic experience inside one of two air-conditioned cabins. Remarkable in its placement at a 90-degree bend above the water, the Lake Clubhouse will be a new model for casual lakeside leisure – a welcoming, 3,500-square-foot space. The 576-foot boat docks, also exclusively for residents, will offer private lounges above the boat slips. While a select number of boat slips are offered for private ownership, most will be reserved for the private Owners Boating Club.
Framed by The Portal, downtown Austin is a brief 20-minute drive from Four Seasons Private Residences Lake Austin. With its soulful spirit, burgeoning art, culture, and entertainment venues, and many of the storied dining experiences in Texas, the city is your playground close to home.
