Lance Armstrong Reportedly Buys New Austin Home (House of the Day)


Lance Armstrong's new home

It was just days ago that we got the news that embattled cyclist Lance Armstrong sold his massive Austin, Texas, estate. Seems property changes hands quickly, because now Armstrong has already snapped up a new home in the Austin area, according to the Austin American-Statesman. While he put his last home was on the market for $10 million, Armstrong paid considerably less for his new one: reportedly only $4.34 million. (We use the term "only" lightly.)

Realtor.com flags the 12,500-square-foot home as a perfect hideout during the "zombie apocalypse" because of its wooden escape bridge that extends from the main house to the boathouse. We're more interested in the home's angular stone facade, as well as the interior wood and stone flooring. The six-bedroom, eight-bathroom house also has a library, game room and gym.
