Location: Austin, Texas
Price: $10,900,000
The Skinny: Whatever your architectural flavor of choice, Austin probably has it, from totally bonkers mushroom shaped modern homes, to homes you can—for some reason—drive right through, to giant Tuscan villas like this $10.9M Italianate manse, which has just listed on the shores of scenic Lake Travis. With more than 13,000 square feet of barrel-vaulted ceilings, murals, and loggias, the house faithfully serves up all the touchstones of the faux Tuscan style. There are high domed ceilings in the bedrooms, landscape paintings in the screening room, and weathered brick walls in the gym. As befits a Texas-sized Tuscan villa, the 10-acre grounds include a waterfall, a putting green, and a private deepwater dock. All it's really missing is a vineyard and winery to fill the casks in the wine cellar with Hill Country red.
