Clarksville house description

Stylish historic house where you can rockstar it up or relax in plush surroundings. Beautifully designed and thoughtfully appointed, the 2500 sq ft home with pool has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths and sleeps 7 or 8.

The home features a formal living area with large flat screen TV, a dining room and a kitchen with a TV watching area.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed. Two rooms have double beds and one bedroom has a twin bed with a trundle. Each room has unique character and style.

In front, a hammock swings from the columned front porch. And a cocktail area with music balances the other side of the porch.

Out back is a stylish modern swimming pool with hot tub, a deck, outdoor dining table, gas grill and a deck for soaking in rays poolside.

Music plays throughout the public spaces. Stainless steel kitchen, quality beddings, and everything you'd expect of a quality home.

The rental is on the edge of downtown, in a walkable, historic neighborhood known as Clarksville. Whole Foods is a 5-minute walk away. Liquor store and bakery are a 2-minute walk and there are 6 or 7 restaurants within a 5-minute walk as well. We've got plenty of retail shopping nearby: By George, named one of the nation's top fashion boutiques; Anthropologie; BookPeople; Waterloo Records; Lululemon; Lush; Jonathan Adler; Amy's Ice Cream: plus a plethora of local galleries and boutiques.

Austin's beloved hike and bike trail around Ladybird Lake is a 10 minute walk away. Gym, yoga and spas are a 5 minutea away. The nearest mani-pedi is 3 minutes by car.

All major Austin activities are within a mile or two of the house. Public transportation is easy to catch from this prime location.

NOTE ON RATES: During festival weekends, my nightly rate raises with the market to $1200 to $1500 a night.

Because of the special nature of the house, renters must at least 30 years old. Renters may not use the location to host events.

                                          Owner info

                                          Year Purchased: 2004

                                          About the owner: I am a creative director of a local advertising agency. My job and my personal interests mean I am often out of town and I lease out my house when I am gone, investing the money back into the house to make it nicer for the next renter. I grew up internationally and have done the same in my adult life, living in London, Paris and, domestically, in New York. Additionally, I travel extensively for pleasure, always as far as I can go. As a result, my home is a working travelers guide. A bibelot from this country, a painting from that. My aesthetic is the glamorous side of mid-century modern.

                                          Why the Owner Chose Clarksville:
                                          I first lived in the area when I was a student at University of Texas. And then to New York after graduation. But as luck would have it, when I returned 20 years later I was able to find a house on the very same street as I lived on before! The house is as close to downtown as you can get while still having a yard. I like the elegant nature of an older home. And this one, built in 1915, is elegant but with a modern and relaxed sensibility.

                                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                          The home features everything you'd expect form an older home: a wide front porch, complete with columns and ceiling fans; 10 foot high ceilings; original longleaf pine floors. What is doesn't have is all the things you'd expect of an older home: poor heating and cooling; drafts; sloppy renovations; and doilies on every surface.
