Everything really is bigger in Texas! This stunning 9 bedroom, 12 bathroom, 15,869 sq. ft. home proves that old adage is still true.
Inspired by the grandeur and opulence of the ‘Cottage’ Mansions at the turn of the century in Newport, Rhode Island, this grand Lake Austin waterfront estate replicates the summer havens that became social and architectural landmarks for the aristocracy of the Gilded Age. History buffs will delight in every detail of the design and craftsmanship of ‘The Breakers’, named for the grandest of these mansions and a symbol of the Vanderbilt family’s social and financial preeminence. Modeling the character, the seller orchestrated the work of a team of craftsmen and artisans to create this masterpiece weaving similar historical and architectural elements and design inspired by the French and Italian Renaissance. Created to be timeless in design and appearance, French, Italian and some Asian influence are found throughout. Every effort was made to use the best quality and the finest and most authentic materials available in the world.
