Texas has only three homes designed by the inimitable Frank Lloyd Wright. But if you're a fan of the famed architect and have a serious stockpile of green to spare, this stunning property designed by John Covert Watson, a FLW apprentice may be for you. Perched in Austin's Hill Country, Retreat at Lick Creek Lodge, boasts an eye-catching hyperbolic paraboloid roof design, plentiful glass for breathtaking views, a pool, a guest lodge, and details that would make an art history professor swoon.

"What I love about the home is that upon arrival you are immediately transported on a journey of nature and art. It really helps you switch gears from this hectic life and provides a shareable space for your collections that is a piece of art in itself," says listing agent Susan Barringer of Kuper Sothebys International Realty. "You can hide away on your own secluded perfectly private swim-up deck in the unbelievable cliff encompassed pool and be out of reach, yet be within minutes of the action in Austin." With an asking price of $17.5 million, luxury sure doesn't come cheap, but prepare to be dazzled by this unique build — even if it's just in the form of a quick virtual escape.
