Property description

The 'Austin Trails Retreat,' with 1400 sq. feet, has two bedrooms & two full baths with a large, open concept living-dining area that is accented with a vaulted, cedar beamed ceiling. The home is furnished with a casual elegance fitting of the Austin Hill Country. The living room has a natural rock, gas-burning fireplace that spans the entire east wall. Light hardwood floors compliment the dark chocolate brown leather furniture in the living room. The view through the four large picture windows boasts a beautiful wooded and rocky xeriscaped yard, backed by the Eanes Creek greenbelt. You will feel as if you are in your own hill country resort spa. A plus is the screened-in deck with a seating as well as dining area and enjoy the gardens, and the occasional deer pass through.
Each carpeted bedroom, both with comfortable queen size beds, has its own bathroom, which makes it perfect for two couples, who might want to share the expense. One bath has a combination tub and shower and the master bath has a shower with a pale green vessel sink and large mirrored cabinet.

This very private, beautiful 1400 sq. foot home is the backside of our 2 unit duplex which my husband and I own. Being able to extend our Austin hospitality through our home gives us great pleasure. We hope our Austin Trail Retreat will meet your needs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: This beautiful 1400 sq. foot home's entrace is located at the back of a 2 unit duplex which my husband and I own. It is more like a condo which shares one small common wall. It has a designated parking space for 2 vehicles. We hope it will meet your needs. We look forward to talking to you and seeing that your visit in Austin is everything you hoped it would be. Benny and Diane Coulston

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What we appreciate most is the proximity to shopping, restaurants, business offices and banks, the two major north to south expressways, Mopac and Hwy 360 and Zilker Park. What we love about our Austin Trails Retreat is the screen-in back porch which affords privacy and an escape from the hustle and bustle. Sit in one of our rockers and over look the greenbelt area, rocky bolder, oak tree filled back yard and xriscaped garden.
