Lance Armstrong Prepares to Sell His Last Austin Mansion: Disgraced Cyclist Already Unloaded Two Swoon-Worthy Dream Houses

BY // 03.24.18

A mansion in the Old West Austin Historic District just hit the market, and its owner is the most famous and notorious cyclist on the planet.

Lance Armstrong has put his Austin estate on sale with a $7.5 million asking price. Armstrong initially listed the Spanish-style mansion at 1706 Windsor Road in 2016 for $8.25 million.

The disgraced champion currently lives in the three-story beauty with his five children and fiancée Anna Hansen.

Armstrong was all about location, location, location in choosing this particular colonial estate. His mansion sits in the coveted Old Enfield neighborhood across from the vibrant, carefully maintained Pease Park Conservancy.

Built in 1924, the home measures in at more than 8,000 square feet. The mansion boasts two dining rooms, six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and one half bath. The kitchen has sleek marble countertops and overlooks the lush garden.

Armstrong shifted gears with the picturesque house’s style after he purchased it in 2013. In 2007, the home, on nearly a half-acre, was extensively renovated with modern and state-of-the-art updates. The contemporary flourishes, like a massive, climate-controlled wine cellar and pool house with its own bathroom and kitchenette complement the home’s classic bones.

Towering live oaks stretch over the grand swimming pool. Outdoor features include an inviting, covered patio and a mosquito system to keep the atmosphere perfect for entertaining outdoors.

Interior touches include built-in bookcases, crown molding, French doors and a dumbwaiter. The master suite offers his-and-hers bathrooms and a private sitting area.

Armstrong has worked to rehabilitate his image after his epic fall from grace. Once an athletic icon, Armstrong was caught doping after going to extraordinary lengths to deny it and attack anyone who suggested he raced dirty. He was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles in 2012.

Since his titles were revoked, the disgraced cyclist has sold two other abodes. His home on Lake Austin was sold to race car driver Bret Curtis in 2013. The same year, Armstrong sold a 1.7-acre estate located near Camp Mabry to businessman Al Koehler.

Today, Armstrong owns a bike shop in downtown Austin called Mellow Johnny’s and does two podcasts — The Forward and Stages.
