Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: A little about your residence hostess: We are designers, dreamers, adventurous, athletic, TEXANS and travelers! We are always on the GO! This is our second home to design/build in Fredericksburg. Originally from west Texas, graduates of Texas Tech & UT-Austin, after a sabbatical in the eastern Caribbean on our sailboat, Sea Gypsy, we decided to settle in Fredericksburg. The traditional values intermingled with the progressive nature of the town, offered the perfect setting for our family of 4. We have traveled extensively, from youth hostiles to the 5-star parisian hotels…and feel confident that you will enjoy our home! Published in DWELL Special Issue "Your Rooms We Love", AUSTIN HOME and more. Designed and built by the Owner/Artist, Cavan McMahon. This home is a true inspriation and a piece of ART. Owner/Real Estate Broker, Donna McMahon manage all of their properties. We hope that you enjoy your stay, in our awesome town, creating your memories! Check out our latest project in Port Aransas: "The SURF BETTY" VRBO #737805 Check out our condo in New Braunfels "Because Life's an Adventure" VRBO #553246

Why the Owner Chose Fredericksburg, TX, USA:
This property is tucked away on a quiet street less then 2 blocks from Main Street. Gated entry and completely privately fenced, once you enter into the courtyard, you will feel as if you are at your own upscale resort. Attention to detail and an artful approach, will leave you feeling inspired.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Comment from a recent guest: The Art House is a fashion forward designers showcase with a paradise pool & patio area. We spent most of our time on the patio even though the house was outfitted with high end appliances and very cool furnishings!
