Former professional cyclist and Austin business owner Lance Armstrong is selling his Old West Austin home, with an asking price of $2 million.


The 3,011-square-foot, three-bedroom home was built in 1931 and features a detached guest apartment with a fourth bedroom, according to a listing on the real estate website Redfin. The lot is 8,282 square feet.

"The spacious backyard has turf for easy maintenance and a fantastic water features," according to the listing, which was posted last week by Laura Gottesman of the local luxury firm Gottesman Residential Real Estate.

Armstrong bought the house, which was assessed by the Travis Central Property District at $1.5 million, in 2018 after selling a larger home in the Old Enfield neighborhood for nearly $7 million. He previously sold an ever bigger home on Lake Austin 2013, the year after he was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles for doping.

That same year, Armstrong told Architectural Digest that he and his family moved full time to Aspen. In February, however, he listed his Colorado home for $14.5 million.

Armstrong remains connected to Austin, however. His business, Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop, opened a location downtown in 2008. And his cancer nonprofit, the Livestrong Foundation, is based in Central Austin.
