Fredericksburg house description

The Austin Street Retreat continues to be one of the most frequently photographed homes in Fredericksburg. The oldest room in the compound was built by European immigrants in 1867. As the family grew they added other rooms. It is the pioneer building techniques of this pre-Victorian era that have made Fredericksburg so enduring and pleasing. With careful restoration, thoughtful additions and an eye for premium quality, Austin Street Retreat has been in operation since 1990. The yard is beautifully kept and includes perennials from the LBJ Ranch. The owners’ love of Texas historic architecture and glamorous, comfortable surroundings all culminate in this compound. Kristin's is one bedroom/sitting room with a King size bed, wood burning fireplace, refrigerator, microwave and coffee/tea, phone docking station and individually controlled central heat and air. Located one block off Main Street in Fredericksburg’s National Historic District, this is a premier property. The immigrant heritage and sensual modern style are a natural combination which provide a truly personal “Retreat” in the Hill Country. This is the perfect place for birthdays, anniversaries, girlfriend outings, honeymoons, babymoons, family reunions and relaxed getaways.
