80 Acre Countryside Estate in Driftwood with Lovely Courtyard

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12

This classic 4BR/3BA town-and-country estate is located on 80 acres in Driftwood. It's hard to believe you're just 20 minutes from downtown Austin!

Step into an open floor plan, with kitchen/dining/living area decorated in exotic mounts, bookshelves, and stained glass windows. You’ll love the open floor plan and high ceilings.

And don't forget to look up: lofted above the dining space is another sleeping space that includes a double futon for 2 adventurous people. Do note that the stairs leading to the loft are steep, so this space is not suitable for kids or elderly guests.

The kitchen has all the utensils and cookware you’ll need. The living area has two large brown leather love seats, two oversized brown wicker chairs, and a large flat screen. A well-stocked book shelf completes this space.

We have a wooden table dining table that seats 8.

Just around the corner is the master bedroom. This distinguished rustic room has a queen bed, flat screen TV, and two closets. Our second bedroom, with an attached bathroom with an antique porcelain tub, has two twin size beds.

The third bedroom has a full-size bed. The shared bathroom is between the first and second bedrooms and has a walk-in shower.

The “West Wing,” as we affectionately call it, is the guest house. Here you'll find a full bed and a large dresser and closet for your luggage. The bathroom has a full shower.

Also in the "West Wing," you’ll find a weight room, treadmill, large leather sofa, fireplace, sauna, flat screen TV, and a sofa sleeper and a cot in the closet for extra guests.

We also have a basketball hoop outside and a working air-hockey table in the loft.

Head outside and you’ll see the awe-inspiring 360-degree view of the surrounding property. A small pond is just to the left. A rock pathway leads to the partially covered patio, where there is a brand new ping pong table, a clay fire pit, gas BBQ grill, and a fireplace.

The house is helicopter accessible, so you don’t have to worry about parking! Escape from the bustle of the city onto a gorgeous Texas Estate.


Located in Driftwood, we're a quick drive to the Solaro Estate and Bell Springs Winery. Other Hill Country attractions, such as Salt Lick BBQ and the Duchman Winery are just down the road. Do not miss the Salt Lick BBQ! You are only a short 20 minute commute to downtown Austin!

Hays County recently added our home into their Wild Life Management program, and our spot will be cultivated as a haven for songbirds, turkeys, mourning doves and other wild life. You are in for a treat!

The City of Austin limits occupancy to six unrelated adults.

Fantastic Texas Living just 15 minutes from the city

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house for my groups annual golf trip with 9 guys coming into town. I wanted to show them a "bit of Texas" and this house didnt disappoint. Very well stocked and appointed with everything we needed from towels to kitchen spices. Even with temps approaching 90ish during the days, we spend most of our non-golf time out on the patio/breezeway which always had a nice breeze blowing through.

Wonderful property!

Exactly What We Needed

  • 4 of 5

A group of us recently stayed here and it was great. There was plenty of parking for everyone. Plenty of things to explore. The openness and layout allowed for some of us to goof off on the patio and kitchen while others were able to finish up work in the loft area or in the second house. Overall it was a good place to get away and we would definitely use it again if we needed somewhere in the area.

Perfect Weekend

This was a great property with everything you would need for a secluded weekend and not far from town. I would highly recommend staying here if you have a large group/family.

Peter And Family

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic property with tons of character and lots of open space and tons of windows for great light.

The AC was powerful and kept us comfortable on 100 plus degree days. Large property with room to roam and explore. Large bathrooms with everything you could possibly need. Will hope it is available next time we're in the Austin area.

Flagstop review

  • 5 of 5

I was very happy with the property. My son was getting married close by and I was able to accommodate family coming from out of town. We enjoy each others company when getting together, these lovely accommodations allowed us time and space to do just that. I would recommend this place to any one looking for a clean, spacious, home in beautiful surroundings, close to any number of attractions in the hill country. The property management was attentive to our needs, as in screen door coming off hinges and no cold water in west wing, so yes we were happy to have a lovely place to rest, relax in-between all the busyness of a wedding.
