Escape to this 8-acre estate in South Austin, just 20 minutes from urban enticements. Built in 1954, the aptly named Writing Barn is brimming with books and creative inspiration.
Make your own music around the fire pit, or cue a favorite playlist with the Wi-Fi connection.
Inviting trails weave through the property, dotted with seating areas—ideal for a picnic, a journal entry, or a nightcap.
Enjoy the privacy of a master bedroom, plus a lofted living area. Stock the fully equipped kitchen with groceries and share meals in both the interior and exterior dining spaces.
Craving tasty BBQ and live music? Downtown and East Austin are about 20 minutes away. Be sure to check out ever-trendy SoCo or up-and-coming South Lamar, both less than 15 minutes from home.
ABOUT THE CABIN
Find eclectic and comfortable seating inside and out. Between the great outdoors and the engaging interior, this cabin home lends itself just as easily to birdwatching as it does to serving three-course meals.
Take advantage of the outdoor offerings, which include a fire pit, picnic tables, and lounge chairs. On chilly evenings, utilize the two outdoor heaters with a mug of tea in hand. Walk the 8-acre grounds and connect with the rest of your group—up to 20 guests can stay onsite with additional rentals.
Massive bookshelves in the main living area could keep you occupied for months on end. If your creative energy is more collaborative, open up the folding tables and chairs for additional work space.
The kitchen features modern appliances and all the essentials for satisfying your culinary cravings. A well-appointed full bathroom, complete with walk-in glass shower, can be accessed from the kitchen and from the master bedroom.
Up one set of stairs, the lofted living area provides more comfortable lounging space, plus a futon that converts to an extra sleeping space for two.
Sleep soundly in the master bedroom on the main level, with a queen-size bed, closet space, and direct access to the backyard.
There is ample parking in the gravel driveway.
The Writing Barn sits on 8 beautiful acres in South Austin, a convenient 25 minutes from the airport. Highways MoPac and I-35 are easily accessible and can route guests to nearly anywhere in the city within 20 minutes—from the campus of UT Austin to the hip restaurants of East Austin. The nearest bus stop is a five-minute walk away, and within a mile of the property you can find Tex-Mex, pubs, and a charming cafe.
