Mount Bonnell /bəˈnɛl/, also known as Covert Park, is a prominent point alongside the Lake Austin portion of the Colorado River in Austin, Texas. It has been a popular tourist destination since the 1850s. The mount provides a vista for viewing the city of Austin, Lake Austin, and the surrounding hills. It was designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 1969, bearing Marker number 6473, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2015.

Designed by Andersson-Wise, built by Pilgrim Building Company in 2009, and listed for sale by Barbara Boyd, this wood, glass, and steel architectural masterpiece combines all the features I love in a house into a single, flowing piece of art that you live in.

Built on two levels, the downstairs is mostly glass in back, which gives simply spectacular views of the lake and hill country. With the open, modern floor plan, and high ceilings, make for a great loft like feel, while maintaining privacy.

Even with all this home has to offer, the highlight by far is the swimming pool. The 83 foot long pool is perfect for lap swimming, and one end seems to float in space. That’s right. The far end of the pool, is cantilevered off the landscape and floats in mid air. Three sides are glass, and the views from the end are simply breathtaking.

Constructed with certified sustainable grown exotic woods (Massaranduba) as well as low E-glass, copper, stucco, and cement, this home is as energy efficient as it is beautiful. Modern and commercial construction techniques were used as well.
