Crossing at Onion Creek farmhouse description
This is the perfect harmony of city convenience offered in a country setting. We are 10 minutes from the Formula One Track by back roads (no traffic!), 13 minutes to Austin Bergstrom Airport, and 20 minutes to Downtown Austin. Our 1920's farmhouse has been lovingly renovated and decorated. Visitors marvel at how unusual it is to find such a spot in the heart of Texas and want to linger. We have 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, one with claw foot tub and his and hers sinks, 2 living areas, chef's kitchen, dining room to seat 8, and home office. The outside boasts 8 acres which include outdoor dining and grill, rose gardens, vegetable gardens, mediation garden, children's play scape, tire swing, 2 barns, chicken coop and duck pond. We welcome you to experience Austin like no other.

This house is gorgeous! The pictures do not even do it justice. Everything is really bright, spacious, and elegant. It should be in a magazine. We had such a nice stay here.

About the owner: After many years amongst the hustle and bustle of New York City, we decided to bring our family to my home state of Texas, where the children can roam free and grow amongst the butterflies and bunny rabbits. We have never regretted this decision, but like to think we brought a bit of city sophistication to country life.
Why the Owner Chose Crossing at Onion Creek:
This 1920s farmhouse was lovingly renovated by a U.T. Interior Design professor and a landscape architect. Current owner is also a design writer and artist, and has chosen to feature a combination of mid-century and heirloom furnishings, along with a local art collection gathered from friends of the artist. A unique, effortlessly relaxing, one-of-a-kind way to enjoy Austin, you are only minutes from all the action -- but you'd never know it.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
It's rare if not impossible to be so close to Austin and yet be surrounded by such beauty, charm, and nature. It's truly peaceful here, both luxurious and pastoral.
