One of the original Mercury 7 astronauts and the first American launched into space in 1961 later commanded the Apollo 14 moon mission in 1971 becoming the only Mercury astronaut to reach the moon. He hand-picked this lot on a rocky promontory 140 feet above Lake Travis on the main basin across from Point Venture. In 1967, Commander Shepard began dreaming of and designing this 3,349 square foot property which includes an 85-foot back deck with sweeping views of the skies, hill country and lake. All four bedrooms offer ensuite baths located on the main level with a game room, large storage closet and a fifth full bath including a sauna on the lower terrace . Renovations over the years include upgrades to the kitchen and bathrooms in 2010. A pool was added shortly after and the current owners have further upgraded the home with hardwood floors throughout and all new windows. All 8 sliding patio doors were replaced and the A/C ductwork was replaced and rerouted along with a complete insulation package enhancing efficiency. Along with the lake being the main focal point in the living room, a large wood burning stone fireplace offers warmth and comfort. Within the two-car garage is a closed off work room with a built-in storage system. In addition to great shopping, restaurants and golf courses close by, the community benefits from no HOA fees and a low tax rate of 1.8%. 818 Mariner provides a piece of American history while enjoying breath taking starry sky views and Lake Travis.
