Barton Heights house description

This house feels like you are living in a tree house. It has a beautiful soothing effect. It is one block from Austin's premier Barton Creek greenbelt, with a third floor look out tower. It has three decks and a tea house.

All living areas are on the entry level with lots of wood on the floors and ceiling. It is architecturally noteworthy and beautiful in a quiet, green and heavily treed neighborhood. All this while being less than 2 miles from downtown and 1.5 miles from Barton Springs Road restaurant row.

The media room has the latest equipment, very cozy, comfortable and woodsy like the rest of the house. It has lots of windows that look out at the tops of the trees. You can hook up your MP3 player to the intercom system to listen to your music throughout the house.

The master bedroom has a 42 inch flat panel TV with a 321 Bose sound system. The master bath has a jetted tub and the shower is lined with natural stone and a frame-less glass door.


Large master bath with separate jetted tub and shower and a water closet. There is a massage chair in the master bedroom.

This house is deliciously clean and contemporary while being cozy and warm. It must be experienced to fully appreciate. (For environmentalists - The house has a 3 mw solar system and a solar hot water system).

This tree house rental is professionally managed and is free of personal belongings.

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About: I love ecology and I use earth friendly products to maintain the house. I founded and steward 'Casa de Luz' which is an educational community center that is 1.4 miles from the house. We serve 3 macrobiotic meals a day to the public. In 1985 I developed Habitat Suites Hotel, one of the first all suite hotels in the U.S. To this day we have received 15 awards for our ecological initiatives. I bring hotel professionalism to this Barton Hills house. This tree house rental is professionally managed and is free of personal belongings.

                      Why Barton Heights:
                      Barton Hills is a serene close to downtown location that is full of trees and nestled up against Barton Creek greenbelt. The house is one block away from the Barton Creek and sits high above it. Everything is so green and peaceful. I love the architecture of this house because of the wood floors and high ceilings that are also covered with wood.
