Jessica & Paul built this modern home in 2010 to create a design-focused resort-like escape in the heart of Austin. We personally make sure that every renter has a truly amazing stay. Contact us if you have any questions!

Jessica & Paul purchased this estate in 2010

It all started with an amazing piece of land -- a 1+ acre flat lot in the heart of Austin, TX. Working with prominent New York architects, we designed a comfortable modern house that is tranquil during the day and perfect for entertaining in the evenings. There is a big yard for kids to play and a infinity-edge salt water pool. We love eating outside most of the year on the covered patio or pool-side dining table. The house is amazingly peaceful and private -- even with large groups.

While many people think of Texas as flat, the dramatic Texas Hill Country begins just West of downtown. We built our house in these first heavily wooded limestone hills, nearly 500 feet above downtown and only minutes from the center of the action. The hills and towering oak trees provide a dramatic natural backdrop for glass-filled modern house. We designed the house and pool around the trees and natural environment, making it a perfect place for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.

Amazing House - Great Location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 8, 2014
  • Stayed: Apr 2014
We had a fabulous girls weekend in Austin. First and foremost, the house was absolutely amazing: impeccable design in each and every room, plenty of space to spread out, huge common areas (living room + kitchen) perfect for hanging out together, a beautiful infinity pool with nice landscaping. We even saw deer from the back patio. Amazing art, high end furnishings, great views…my list could go on and on.

The home’s location was also great. Close enough to easily drive (or cab) to downtown/6th street but far enough out to feel like you can get away and relax. There is also a HEB (grocery store) about a mile away in case you need anything.

The homeowners were fabulous and very easy to work with. They left all of the needed information for us and were very easy to contact, but also gave us privacy for our trip. They have a concierge service to help with dinner reservations, stocking the kitchen, etc but we didn't need it for this visit.

If you are looking for a place to stay, I would highly recommend staying here. You will not be dissapointed. We are already talking about our next trip back!

Everything was perfect!

Everything was wonderful! You have a beautiful home and the neighborhood was a retreat from the craziness of SXSW.

We especially enjoyed the music system and the living area. I got stuck among the bookshelves more than once, a nice collection. It was fun to see the deer that hang out in the cool trees (oak maybe). The concierge service you recommended was great as well, she did a nice job stocking our fridge so we didn't have to think about it. Thank you!

Paul and Jessica designed and built this house, and it is incredible. Modern, clean design, and yet still warm and comfortable, the well-appointed layout is at once practical and uplifting. And then there's the spectacular modern and local and New York-procured and Central American art... and the infinity pool... and the view of the Austin hills... and the Live Oak trees moving naturally throughout the property... and the many-pointed buck who whispered past my window early one morning... And the rich, beautiful use of color and shape and glass in every room... Seriously, I can't even believe they rent this place. It's that amazing. You will love it.
