Austin 1960's Rockmoor Estate!
Almost unequalled in privacy, the Rockmoor Estate in Austin, Texas is gated twice - once at the entrance drive and again across its private lagoon that opens to Lake Austin. Pirates not allowed. For sale for the first time in over 50 years, the property is owned by the estate of E. Gary Morrison who was an early investor in Radian, an environmental consulting firm and was involved in local business organizations and the University of Texas. Located in Tarrytown and just west of Oyster Landing Marina and minutes from downtown Austin, the 13-acre property is well-known by locals and was referred to as “Paradise Found” by the Austin American-Statesman in 1964. It also received rave reviews from Architectural Digest and the Los Angeles Times.
With 660 feet of waterfront, the contemporary house was designed by George Page, of Page Southerland Page Architects, in the 1960s. The 5,170-square-foot two-story residence includes five bedrooms and seven baths, including the separate guest suite. Other rooms include dining room, living room, kitchen, laundry, study, and basement with reinforced storm shelter. Outside is a swimming pool and meandering stone walkways and paths leading down to the lagoon’s private boat house. Remnants of Texas history can be found on the grounds such as the 19th-century lime kiln that still stands near the entrance. The Austin Business Journal reported the price at $35 million.
