The lowdown: Set in the Texas Hill Country, Lake LBJ is a favorite destination of Texans, and with all the resort amenities Horseshoe Bay has to offer, it’s hard not to fall in love with the area. The home at 416 Lighthouse Drive is particularly captivating, as it is the lake house of American astronaut Captain James Lovell of the famed Apollo 13 mission, among others.
Lovell and his wife, Marilyn, worked closely with an Austin architect to design a home that focused on the family spaces and emphasized the essence and beauty of lake living. With sweeping waterfront views, a commanding fireplace in the great room, and careful attention to architectural detail, the home captured everything the couple wanted.
Its 4,895 square feet of space offers a thoughtful floorplan with seamless transitions and enduring style. Endless outdoor recreation is available, including boating, skiing, and a long list of activities from the world-class Horseshoe Bay Resort. The entire street is its own peninsula jetting out into Lake LBJ, giving Lighthouse Drive an especially private and exclusive air.
