Lance Armstrong buys $4.3m hideaway in Texas

Lance Armstrong has splashed out on a new $4.3million hill-top mansion in Texas described as a 'fortress'.

The seven-time Tour de France winner, who was last year exposed as a drugs cheat, bought the Lake Austin, Texas retreat after selling his home in central Austin.
He is perhaps seeking a lower profile after he was last year banned from sports for life and stripped of his titles by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

Architectural lighting picks out the features on the beautiful home

Private: The new home replaces Armstrong's old house in Central Austin, which reportedly lacked privacy - something the recently exposed drugs cheat may well be craving now

Comfortable: The home boasts incredible views over the Texas countryside down to Lake Austin

Seen from another angle: Ample fenestration means the inside is able to benefit from the bright Texan sun

This is where the magic happens: Floor to ceilings windows in this one of the eight bedrooms offers views of the 3.6 acres of private wooded grounds that Armstrong's new home sits in

Secluded: The boat house on Lake Austin, from where he can make a quick getaway across the water
