We all wish we could own a place where we can hide away from the world when it gets too stressful and we may have found the perfect place for you in Spicewood, TX where a retreat just hit the market designed by a protégé of a famed American Architect.

The 30-acre Retreat at Lick Creek Lodge sits on a cliff over the Pedernales River.

Set on 30 stunning acres in Spicewood, The Retreat at Lick Creek Lodge is a one-of-a-kind compound designed by John Covert Watson, an intern of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

Defined by its hyperbolic parabola roof which resembles a splayed deck of cards, this home is striking inside and out according to its listing by Greg Walling.

The roof creates a semi-circular motif that is repeated throughout the house, from the entry rotunda to the arching wall of glass that spans the living room and looks out to the tangle of nature enveloping the home.

The interior is a celebration of the Texas Hill Country.

An extraordinary entertaining space, the living room arches around a limestone fireplace and looks out over the rolling hills; it has hosted galas and concerts when not serving as a private retreat.

The floor plan offers many unique hideaways, from a secret-door-accessed office to a serene meditation room.

Step down the hillside to the grotto pool, half-hidden in a rocky crevasse, where you can swim as if you were on a desert island.
