Beefy comedian and podcast host, Joe Rogan, has a house on Lake Austin, too. His place is a modern style home that is vast, yet cozy. His house comes with its own bar, an open fire place, walls made of glass– which is great for the sunny lakeside setting– and lots of open space. This house is said to have cost $14.4 million!
Sandra Bullock’s Home
One of America’s sweetest and more versatile actresses had a house on Lake Austin, too. Bullock actually owns many properties in Austin, TX, but her main residence was her house along the lake, which she sold in 2012 for $2.5 million. Her selling the home had nothing to do with it or the lake, and more to do with her wanting to settle down in a different city with her kiddo. Perhaps once her children are grown up and moved out, Austin residents will see the return of Bullock.
Many folks these days don’t fret over disliking the drapes and mouldings in the homes for sale on Lake Austin. They simply buy it anyway and tear down to start fresh. Some of most beautiful homes on the lake are built by companies like Dalgleish Construction and Shiflet Architects, including the Music Box.
