Hidden in a residential area only 5 minutes from Downtown and 6 blocks from Zilker Park is a nearly 1-acre estate with a view of the western hills. The home is a sprawling, rustic 1930's ranch house that has been updated to enhance its original character. Enjoy the large family kitchen, cozy den with fireplace, romantic master bedroom with a view, and wide open shady lawn with plentiful seating, hammock, and treehouse. If you want extra room or a separate getaway for one or two people in your party, look into also renting the guesthouse--its listing number 1356553 (type that number into the HomeAway or VRBO search bar).
Stay home and enjoy the quiet privacy, where you will have solid WiFi, quality and antique furniture, original art and luxury linens. Or venture out with ease to the many activities nearby. We offer bicycles to explore Barton Springs Pool, hidden wet-weather swimming holes, and the trails of the Barton Creek greenbelt. Or cruise down the hill to Lady Bird Lake, where you can row, canoe, paddle board or circle the trails. There are so many eateries, pubs and coffee houses close by that we’ve published our own guide of “Things to Do, Places To Go, People to See” for your stay. Zilker Park offers the ACL music festival, a kite festival, and live outdoor summer theater. Its botanical garden or the nearby Umlauf Sculpture Garden are great places to picnic. At the end of the day, dance to live country music at the locally-famous hole in the wall--the Broken Spoke--or check out the HighBall retro bowling alley/karaoke bar and neighboring Alamo Drafthouse Cinema--uniquely Austin experiences.
If you want to venture outside the neighborhood, we're oh so close to Downtown, and also to the University of Texas. Just west of town is the Texas Hill County, where you can sail or ski on the Highland Lakes, tour local wineries, or attend a small town festival or market weekend. We’re happy to help with suggestions whenever needed!
