Property description

Stunning Historic Oasis in Downtown Austin. 5BR/5BA with pool, in-ground spa and true chefs kitchen. This luxurious home compound is in the wonderfully eclectic Travis Heights neighborhood. If you want to enjoy Austin ‘weird’ walk these streets, day or night, to SOCO, Downtown and the East Side. Your domain sits squarely in the center of everything that makes Austin the truly wonderful city it is and you will feel the calm of this hidden gem while you are moments away from anywhere you want to be.
The grounds include beautiful gardens, grand front and back porches, room decks and, of course, your own private pool and in-ground spa. Relax here and enjoy this quiet haven while the world of Austin buzzes around you.
The home features 5 king bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms, each with wonderful garden or city views. Each room includes it’s own private television and dry bar. The main spaces include a grand entry, dining room that seats 12 and grand parlor with full electronics, including 42” television, DVD play, iPod hookup and full house + outdoor speaker sound system. The home of a chef, the kitchen offers everything for the traveling chef; 6-burner Wolf Range, commercial faucet, 12” deep sink and french door refrigerator/freezer with in door water and ice. If you’d like to cook outdoors, you’ll have a 48” propane grill, smoker and charcoal burning grill available to you.
For your time away from your oasis, this home is immediately on Lady Bird Lake and our wonderful boardwalk for walking and running. You will be just 13 blocks from South Congress and the same from the center of Downtown and only 3 miles from the UT Campus. For outdoor play, you will be steps from Big and Little Stacy Parks and Stacy Pool or just 2.5 miles from Barton Springs Natural Fed Pool (constantly voted the best natural fed pool in the US), Zilker Park and our Greenway for hiking. For some of the best music, restaurants and nightlife in town, you will be 1 mile to 6th Street, 2.5 miles to South Lamar, half a mile to Rainey Street and only 1.5 miles to the heart of the ever-cool East side.
Our property is also certified Diamond Collection. Our calendar and rates are 100% accurate. The property security will be set with a key code only for your stay. This former B&B will offer full sets of luxury linens in every room, robes, slippers, pool towels and starter supplies of all bath toiletries, cleaning and paper goods. Your hosts live in an apartment on the back of the property, available 24 hours a day. Our property follows all local and state tax rules. Each reservation includes applicable taxes, a cleaning fee and a property damage refundable deposit.

Car: Not Necessary

Location, Location, Location. Do you want to be walking/bicycling distance from both downtown And South Congress. Do you want to be on the river And on every major bus line, including only a 5-minute bus ride to Zilker Park & Barton Springs? Do you also want to be a bike ride or briefest drive from the emerging and ultimately creative East Side? And would you like all this on a main thoroughfare that is a breeze to and from the airport but also feels like it’s miles away from everything? We are located at the intersections of SOCO/Travis Heights, Downtown and the East Side.

Other Activities: Live Music, Great Food, Texas Politics, Bat Bridge
