Property description

This 102 year old Victorian style 2BR/2BA home has been fully restored with top of the line environmentally conscious materials. The home is perfectly located two miles from the locations of both SXSW and ACL.

The master bedroom, located in the front of the house, with a private entrance off the front porch, features nine foot ceilings and three large bay windows looking out over the front lawn and side garden. It also has a small sitting area in front of the windows. The master bath has a large walk-in shower, big enough to share, a heated tile floor, and a large vintage mirror. A stained glass window lets in light, but maintains privacy. The guest bedroom has a ceiling that slopes toward the back of the house and features a 1920's metal frame double bed. This cozy, private room with a walk-in closet opens to the living room on one side and a lovely period bathroom on the other. There's a full-length antique mirror and a little sitting area with an antique platform rocker. The bath has a refinished vintage clawfoot tub with a shower attachment and a beautiful vanity made from an antique tile and marble washstand. This bath also has a stained glass window and heated tile floor. Each bedroom features a ceiling fan, a 26” flat panel TV with cable and a DVD player, and a clock radio with an iPod dock. In the fully-furnished kitchen, the sink and built-in ironing board closet came out of the owner's grandmother's house and were refurbished for your use. Due to the unusual nature of the antique stove and for your safety, we have provided a counter-top convection oven and a microwave oven to use in place of the antique oven. The cook top, though, has been retrofitted with four electric burners. In addition, you'll find many modern energy-efficient appliances: dishwasher, garbage disposal, ice maker, toaster, coffee pot with timer, hot water pot, and a blender with a frozen Margarita recipe handy.

The gardens surrounding the Heritage House and the other two buildings on the property, planted in native flowers and shrubs, are open for your use. Ancient Pecan, Live Oak, and Red Bud trees provide ample shade. Exclusive to the vacation rental is an antique brick patio (with an interesting history) with a 3-tiered fountain and native plants, under a hundreds-of-years-old live oak. A crushed granite walkway circles the grounds where you will find shaded seating and tables and another large lighted, arbor-covered patio sitting area for your use. In the rear, a rock patio has seats and tables made from huge salvaged architectural stone pieces found on the lot. It sits next to the oriental garden featuring a dock and bridge, fountain, waterfall, and Koi pond. Behind the oriental garden is our on-site caretaker's residence.
