AND WOW does this home has a story . . .

This residential home located right in the heart of Famed 6th Street Entertainment District is protected as a Historical Landmark and was carefully restored into a Mid-Century Modern Home by renowned Austin architect David Graeber.

Back in the early 1880's, Austin was new and growing. This building was the home to Shamrock Saloon constructed by an Irish immigrant while the Texas State Capitol was being built just a few blocks away. Shamrock Saloon served the community for many years.

However over the years, 6th Street went through a step decline in the late 50's and early 60's as locals opted for more suburban shops and business. Many of these original 6th Street stone buildings were abandoned and forgotten.

David Graeber bought 410 E 6th Street in 1968 as a run down, falling in, non-habitable shell of a structure. You should see the photo album in the home - you won't believe the transformation. He had a dream of a downtown, city dwelling lifestyle for himself and his family.

In the late 70's he completed a strikingly modern interior that sits in great contrast to the original stone facades. Many of the interior spaces are just as David created them 4 decades ago. It is a time capsule with references to times and lives lived over 130 years in this one location.

This one-of-kind home has been featured in many magazines and articles. Many drinks and good times have been had in this special place from the Shamrock Saloon to private Graeber family parties to public events.

David Graeber once said 'Our life has been immeasurably enriched by living here.'

We invite you to be our guests. We invite you to add to the story of this home.

Let us enrich your lives while staying here. We look forward to meeting soon!
