Austin’s Last Great Lake Travis Neighborhood — Rare Private Enclave Puts the Water at Your Doorstep: The Resort-Style Perks and Dream Homes of The Peninsula at Rough Hollow

BY Promoted Series Correspondent // 10.05.18

It seems like everyone is moving (0r wants to move) to Austin these days, but a lakeside lifestyle in Texas’ most dynamic city is reserved for the lucky few… and the luxe.

Just 30-minutes from downtown Austin, The Peninsula at Rough Hollow is a world away from it all – yet closely connected. Located on the prestigious south shore of Lake Travis, The Peninsula is Lakeway’s last gated community and a stone’s throw from exceptional dining, shopping and an accredited medical center.

“The Peninsula offers world-class views and unparalleled access to the water,” says Bill Hayes, chief operating officer of Legend Communities, “You don’t find that much anymore.”

The Peninsula is the most prestigious neighborhood within the award-winning Rough Hollow. The 200-acre parcel is naturally secluded, surrounded by water on three sides and set on a hilltop above the shoreline. Developers worked closely with a land planner to embrace these topographical challenges.

Building pads were deliberately arranged with attention to elevations and view corridors, allowing many of the homes to have private docks and panoramic vistas of Lake Travis and the Hill Country.

Sixty percent of The Peninsula’s 85 estate-sized lots are sold, but homesites remain available from $300,000 and luxury custom homes starting at $1.5 million. Buyers can work with the best builders in the Austin area. Peninsula’s preferred builders are Arbogast Custom Homes, Jenkins Custom Homes, Lake Travis Builders, Laurel Haven Homes or Triton Custom Homes — to realize the residence or vacation home of their dreams, rendered in Hill Country modern, Texas contemporary, or Santa Barbara hacienda-style.

Luxurious Lakeside Living

Residents of The Peninsula enjoy all of Rough Hollow’s resort-style amenities: Access to the prestigious Rough Hollow Yacht Club & Marina, more than three miles of shoreline, more than 22 miles of hiking and biking trails, a water-themed community center, a fitness center, an on-site restaurant, concierge services and more.

Within the month, construction will be complete on a two-level swimming platform with private slips, which The Peninsula residents can reach within minutes on foot or by bike.

“The Peninsula offers the best of both worlds,” Hayes says. “Exclusivity and restricted access, with dining, shopping, exemplary schools and everything else you could need close by.”
