Located on Austin’s stunning Lake Travis, the longest of the Highland Lakes to the west of the famous Texan city, Tower House by Andersson-Wise Architects is one of the finest woodland cabins around. Position neatly on a gentle slope up from the water, Tower House boasts two bedrooms, each en-suite, with a vast living area and top level terrace, opening visitors up to an expansive panorama of the surrounding lake and rolling hills. Perfect to take in a hot Texan summer or cool winter with a heater to one side, the Tower House too is barely visible at ground level through the thick woodland.
