Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are Will and Hollye, a husband and wife who moved to Austin by way of Venice Beach and Scottsdale. We met at an art festival in the black rock desert and have been inseparable ever since. We both work as professional freelance artists. I am a professional photographer and Will is a visual effects artist. We live part time in Scottsdale and part time in Austin. When we are out of town, we love the opportunity to host guests in our little Austin gem. We now have a little one named Quinn born in 2013. She is the love of our life.

Why the Owner Chose Zilker:
This home is known and loved throughout the neighborhood. Several people have stopped by and said it is their favorite home in Zilker. We purchased this property because we felt it was uniquely Austin. It was important for us to live in a place that had rustic charm and an authentic feel.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home next door at 1609 was built as a hunting lodge by Texas governor Coke Stevenson. Rumor has it that this home may have been his too. Amenities: Wifi enabled Renovated front room (“man lounge”) Nest thermostat controllable from smart phone Refinished long leaf pine flooring, locally hand made iron chandelier Belgian linen curtains Custom closet built-ins in front bedroom Upholstered window cornice boards in front bedroom There is a $80 cleaning fee assess on all bookings
