About Jodi Zipp
My husband and I are empty nesters who always dreamed of having a 'cabin in the country.' We were able to bring that dream to reality when we found this lovely bit of Texas heaven in 2011. We live in Austin, but we spend as much time as possible hanging out on the river. We share the property with two other couples with the same dream of having a nearby respite from the city.
Jodi Zipp purchased this cabin in 2011
Why Jodi Zipp chose Castell
We've looked for years for a piece of property that was within 2 hours' drive of Austin, on water, and that would be manageable as we get older--we found this one through some friends who also have a place upriver from us. We love the pink granite, the lazy river (which has never gone dry), the sunsets, the wildflowers, the peace. We are still working at getting to know our little sliver of Texas--we discover new nooks and crannies of it all the time. It's also great to be close enough to go hear live music at the Hilltop Cafe or eat great barbecue at the Castell General Store just up the road. Hunters will find an abundance of leasing opportunities and plenty of game during the season.
What makes this cabin unique
We are so delighted with our compound, designed by our favorite up and coming architect, Matt Garcia, who has also designed two other houses for us. The Llano property was featured in Garden and Gun magazine, Jan. 2014 as well as in on-line architecture blogs. We have tried to make it as sustainable and low-maintenance as possible for ourselves and for our guests.
