PHOTOS: Want to see the type of Austin home $5M can buy?

AUSTIN (KXAN) – One of Austin’s elite is looking to sell. Luckily for the rest of us, that means their listing agent took many pictures of life from the inside and shared them. Now you can get a taste of what it’s like where the grass is just a little greener and the lights are controlled by iPad.

Welcome to Acqua Villa, a quaint little abode on Lake Travis located at 14515 Ridgetop Terrace. Quaint, if 8,000 square feet and an elevator being available to reach all three floors matches your idea of the word.

Philanthropist and business tycoon Milton Verret has decided it’s time to move on from the property. Founder of the US Money Reserve, the nation’s largest distributors of U.S. Government-issued gold, silver and platinum coins, one can imagine he has a decent substitute lined up.

Verret’s home can be yours for $4.995 million. Once you plunk that down, you’ll be able to relax in your infinity-edge pool and reheat a frozen pizza in your gourmet kitchen complete with caesarstone countertops and floors. As your scarfing your slice, saunter over to the in-home bar that opens up to views of the waterfront.

Once you’re ready to retire to the master suite for the evening, sir or madam can take a dip into the jetted tub or enjoy a steam shower. With eight bathrooms and five bedrooms in the home, invite some friends over to enjoy the experience.

The home has its own cryotherapy spa, a six-car garage and a guest house.
