Property description

Stylish historic home where you can rockstar it up or relax in plush surroundings, just 4 blocks from all the downtown action. The home has been featured in magazines and home show and comes in at 2500 sq ft with 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths.

The home features an open plan and a chef's kitchen executed in walnut, marble and stainless. Flat screen TV in living area and stereo throughout the public areas, inside and outside, ensures everyone is happy.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed. Two rooms have double beds and one bedroom has a queen-sized bed. Each room has unique character and style.

In front, a hammock swings from the columned front porch. And a cocktail area with music balances the other side of the porch.

Out back is a stylish modern swimming pool with hot tub, a deck, outdoor dining table, gas grill and a deck for soaking in rays poolside.

The rental is on the edge of downtown, in a walkable, historic neighborhood known as Clarksville. There are 6 or 7 restaurants, bars, a wine and liquor store, and a bakery all just a 5-minute walk from the house. Whole Foods' flagship is a 7-minute walk away. We've got plenty of retail shopping nearby: By George, named one of the nation's top fashion boutiques; Anthropologie; BookPeople; Waterloo Records; Lululemon; Kick Pleat; Lush; Amy's Ice Cream; Wildflower Organics; plus a plethora of local galleries and boutiques.

Austin's beloved hike and bike trail around Ladybird Lake is a 10 minute walk away. Gym, yoga and spas are a 5 minutes away. The nearest mani-pedi is 3 minutes by car.

All major Austin activities are within a mile or two of the house.

NOTE ON RATES: My minimum stay is 3 nights at $800 each and $500 for additional nights. During festival weekends, my nightly rate raises with the rest of the market to $1350 a night.

Because of the delicate nature of the house, all members of the rental party must at least 30 years old and must provide IDs. Renters may not use the location to host events.

Please note: the home is part of a neighborhood and as such is subject to Austin's sound ordinance. From 10:30pm to 7am, you can’t make noise or play an instrument or music that is even audible to the next door neighbors. If either the police or I receive a complaint about your party, your full $2000 Damage Deposit will be forfeited.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: I am a creative director of a local advertising agency. My job and my personal interests mean I am often out of town and I lease out my house when I am gone, investing the money back into the house to make it nicer for the next renter. I grew up internationally and have done the same in my adult life, living in London, Paris and, domestically, in New York. Additionally, I travel extensively for pleasure, always as far as I can go. As a result, my home is a working travelers guide. A bibelot from this country, a painting from that. My aesthetic is urban contemporary, with a bit of Zsa-Zsa Gabor thrown in for good measure.

Why Clarksville, Austin, TX, USA:
I first lived in the area when I was a student at University of Texas. And then to New York after graduation. But as luck would have it, when I returned 20 years later I was able to find a house on the very same street as I lived on before! The house is as close to downtown as you can get while still having a yard. I like the elegant nature of an older home. And this one, built in 1915, is elegant but with a modern and relaxed sensibility.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As a creative professional, the feel of my space is very important to me. To that end, my house has been designed to the nines, for both aesthetics and comfort. Newly renovated, the home has been featured in magazines and the local home show.
