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.
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!
This house was beyond our expectations. We pulled up and just the look from outside was breathtaking. There were 7 of us and the house was more than spacious and immaculate. Everything the owners told us was to the tee. From the art work to the ambiance it rates a 10. A 10 minute drive from the city made it very convenient. As we drove down the mountain, the view was incredible. Each room had its own personality which made it all the more eye catching. Paul and his wife were more than available if we needed anything. They set us up with a concierge service that recommended a chef serviced for New Years Eve. Two chefs cooked 15 of us a Texas dinner that we wouldn't be able to get in a restaurant. As we ate the view overlooking the mountain and the infinity pool were just great. I wouldn't hesitate to go back there again. I would highly recommend it to all who are seeking a stay in Austin!

We rented this beautiful home for the weekend of our daughters wedding in Austin in October. Everything - from the location ,to the design, to the artwork was just superb.
The privacy was only broken by a majestic 8-point buck who wandered the grounds in the early morning for his photo shoot!......and this only a short car or cab ride to Austin city center?.....wow.
We can't thank the owners enough for sharing this wonderful asset with us and giving us all a weekend we will not forget.

I have two words for you MIND BLOWING. Not only is the house and decor amazing the owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. I would highly recommend the place and will definitely be back.
Every great thing you read about this house - all the pictures shown in the listing, barely offer a glimpse of its greatness. I found it hard to believe that it was even better in person. We just had one of the best long weekends of our lives with friends from all corners of the US, celebrating my wife’s 40th birthday. Every second that we spent in the house had a smile attached to it. We would find it hard to believe that any other place could have been better because this property was perfect! It feels very private with beautiful grounds and a very spacious layout that comfortably accommodated 5 couples, a large infinity pool and patio area with an outdoor bathroom, and a wireless sound system that allows you to pipe your music on Spotify/Slacker/Pandora/iPod music throughout the home and patio area. The house is also convenient to the airport and downtown. Paul and Jessica were easily accessible and helped make our stay one that we will remember forever.
Paul and Jessica recently opened their West Lake home to my family for a weekend birthday celebration... and wow, it was truly unbelievable. The architecture, the design and the backdrop made it an absolutely amazing experience. It was clear that Paul and Jessica have put so much time and thought into making it such a special place. The pictures are accurate but it was so much nicer in real life. It was also an easy 10 min drive to downtown but we actually preferred staying at the house ?(which was immaculate btw). The infinity pool overlooking the hills was an especially great place for us to relax. The whole house Sonos sound system was also a treat. If you have the opportunity to stay at this house, I would highly, highly recommend.
What can I say… Thank you thank you thank you! We had a truly amazing weekend. The story goes that in our circle of friends, for each person's 40th birthday we do a destination celebration and 10-15 of us all fly in from around the country to the city of the birthday boy or girl's choosing. Last weekend was Austin and this home could not have been a better choice. First and foremost the owners were wonderful to work with… super accommodating and easily reachable to answer questions prior to our arrival. Once we did arrive we were in awe of the house overall. The decor was perfectly balanced between warm and modern. The layout was perfect for a large group offering plenty of space of us to spend time together but also get away for some alone time to sneak that inevitable quick work call. We spent plenty of time lounging around the pool, relaxing in the gorgeous living room which we coined the "disco room"... and cooking meals in the fabulous kitchen. A wonderful weekend in a wonderful home!
The house is located in the exclusive village of West Lake Hills in the center of Austin. Just 5 miles from the center of downtown and requiring no highways to get downtown, the house is convenient to all of the cultural, retail, shopping, and nightlife destinations that Austin has to offer. Just 2 minutes from a variety of restaurants and shopping. Just 5 minutes from the Austin City Limits festival and 10 minutes from the heart of downtown. Located close to 360/71, the house is a quick 25 minutes drive to the Circuit of the Americas Formula 1 (F1, Formula One) race track.
