Austin tech entrepreneur Philip Berber and his wife Donna Berber have put their 30-acre waterfront home on the market for $14.95 million.
Known as Commanders Point Estate, the 9,642-square-feet mansion overlooks Lake Travis and was designed to look like an English country estate.
The home features four bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a multi-level library. The Berber lake house also has a parlor, exercise complex and a media room.
Outside there is an equestrian facility, full-sized basketball courts, tennis courts, hiking and riding trails and a private boat dock.
When the Berbers bought the house through a partnership in 2001 for $8.85 million it was the most expensive home sale in Central Texas at that time, according to the Austin Board of Realtors.
Berber founded a software company called CyBerCorp Inc. in 1995 hat was sold in 2000 to Charles Schwab Co. for $488 million. Berber and his wife Donna then started the A Glimmer of Hope Foundation, a global organization that is devoted to alleviating poverty, funding it with a $100 million endowment.
Berber is also an investor in the Formula One racetrack in Austin.
The property is just north of Mansfield Dam Park and is listed with Dave Murray with DMTX Realty, a Coldwell Banker United Realtors team, along with Eric Moreland of Moreland Properties.
The lake house is actually the Berbers’ second home in Austin. Their full-time residence is in Westlake Hills, according to Murray.
