Lance Armstrong Modern Home It looks like professional race car driver Bret Curtis is swapping the old world for the new. In May he purchased Lance Armstrong’s Austin home for somewhere around $4.34 million. The modern-style home was designed by architect Arthur Andersson and features stone, steel and unique geometrical shapes. Curtis is now trying to unload his other home in Austin, which he just listed for $9.95 million.

Bret Curtis Castle Known as the “castle in the woods,” the home embodies old-world architecture, with Gothic arches, stonework, and Moorish domes. An English-country garden, wrought iron chandeliers and antique furniture complete the castle-inspired look. It spans 16,722 square feet, with seven bedrooms and 7.5 baths. The home comes with a resort-style pool, outdoor kitchen and living areas, a separate carriage house and guest house, a 1,500-bottle wine cellar, gym, elevator, and seven fireplaces. It sits on five acres in Barton Creek, a prestigious country club community.

Curtis first listed the “castle” on April 8, 2013, for $9.7 million, but pulled it off the market less than two weeks later, on April 17. He’s now trying to sell it for $250,000 more. Curtis purchased the home in January for $7.5 million, so he stands to make a lot from the sale.
