Property description

Outback Pedernales Retreats is where rustic elegance meets relaxation. Nested in the Texas hill country 15 miles outside of Austin it offers a tranquil and meditative retreat from the hustle and bustle of city living. Outback Pedernales Vacation Home is on the grounds of a private estate in the hill county of Spicewood, Texas. It's a perfect place for couples, girls and family get aways or while attending the numerous music events such as Austin City Limits coming in October, South by Southwest in March or Formula 1. It also has just the right amount of sophisticated, beauty, nature and space to hold magical weddings, anniversaries, family reunions or office parties. (different rates and stipulation apply for weddings). Vacationers looking for hidden gems will be pleased at what this special private getaway has to offer. You will find picturesque views, boating, swimming, fishing, inspiring rock formations and romantic waterfalls. Truly a photographers paradise.

The back yard contains a 1,500 square feet deck that is perfect for late night, morning and weekend dining. It is also fabulous for dancing, entertaining and receptions. The deck overlooks the Pedernales River and the beautiful hill country terrain. In our opinion downstairs along the river banks is one of the most meditative spots in the Hill Country. You can feel the Native American spiritual presence and from time to time spearheads have been discovered. This a a perfect site for a vacation you won't forget.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Outdoors, sports minded, adventurous, with a desire to live life to the fullest.

Why the Owner Chose Spicewood:
I wanted acreage and water for boating, a safe space to raise kids, and and as close to nature as possible without being too far from the city and job site. I also fell in the love with the kitchen, with it's sleek modern and classy amenities such as the double refrigerator, compactor, and wine cooler. And the backdrop of mirrors instead of the customary tile had me taken at first sight. It will capture your heart as well. But it is really the knowledge of knowing that this property is part of history. As you descend downstairs to the outback boating dock you can't help but feel the spiritual vibrations of the earlier native American who once lived here. There are small niches in between large rock formations where you can picture their everyday living . Such as the outdoor cooking and sleeping quarters. You also get a glimpse of what it might have been on the battle field of the early Texas and the Apaches with each side holding their ground on their side of the river. I have been told that it is common to find arrowheads on the grounds and banks of the river and other archeological finds. I feel it a honor and a blessing to safe this private sanctuary.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
What soothes my soul is the tranquil and peaceful sound of the outdoor waterfall as I rock on the back porch or sit on the front porch overlooking the oak trees. At the same time it's a great place to have a party. I bought this home to have family reunions and outdoor parties as well. It's private and no body will tell you to turn down your music or call the cops.
