A enormous Austin home inspired by turn-of-the-century cottage-styled mansions in Newport, R.I, this waterfront estate was designed to honor the Vanderbilt’s iconic New England “Breakers” compound with historically accurate architecture elements and handcrafted detailing. The meticulous $13.4 million, 9-bed/10.5-bath home has roughly 15,900 square-feet on a 10-acre lot surrounded by centuries-old pecan trees on Lake Austin. Built in 1999, the home has marble on the counters and floors and an immense kitchen with commercial-grade appliances. Outside, there’s a pool and cabana and several outlying buildings big enough to serve as stables, a workshop and apparently, a hangar. [via realtor]
