This two-story custom 'pier and beam' home was built in 2007 and includes 4 bedrooms/3.5 baths and oak hardwoods throughout the main common areas downstairs. The bedrooms are luxuriously appointed with John Robshaw textiles, vintage quilts, and down pillows. There are two Master suites, one upstairs and one downstairs, and both include double sinks and walk-in showers. You can cook a mean meal on the Wolf stove in the subway-tiled kitchen and, weather permitting, open up the wall of french doors between the kitchen and outside screened patio and mingle over some wine. Your kids can enjoy the park and pool only a few blocks away in the summer, the fenced backyard, or, if you need some quiet, you can situate them in an upstairs loft. The spacious living room downstairs includes a baby grande piano, gas fireplace on with a switch, comfortable seating, a 14' beamed ceiling --it's a spacious and comfortable place to hang out after a fun day of soaking up Austin, or can be a lovely place to stretch and read a book as the sun pours in the huge windows that run along the whole front of this beautiful home.
My husband is a sixth generation native Texan -- and an Aggie. We have a mixed marriage, as I am the first generation child of Indian immigrant parents -- and a Longhorn (Hook 'Em Horns!). My husband and I are both attorneys (SMU and NYU respectively). We have been married 13+ years and built this house when our girls were itty bittys--our youngest was only four months old! Our initials and handprints are embedded in the concrete driveway.
Raman Gill purchased this house in 2008
We chose the lot because of the large trees, and proximity to the central business district, medical center, a nice park, premium grocery store, bars and restaurants. This home is on a gorgeous tree-lined street, just far enough away from main roads, yet we regularly walk to a bakery, pub, premium sushi restaurant, cool taco place, and upscale grocery store that has bands that play most weekends.
This is not just a vacation rental, this is our home. We only make this beautiful gem available to visitors when we are out of town for some special events, school holidays, and weekends. Most people who visit our home assume it's a remodel because we built it on 'pier and beam,' with a beautiful walk-up porch, and really tried to honor the craftsman/bungalow feeling prevalent in older homes in central Austin. However, this home is not old; we built it just four years ago, with all the comforts and amenities of a new, custom-built home.
House was just as advertised. Great, clean house. Nice neighborhood, near stuff. Just a couple blocks from the Draught House, which is great for an afternoon pint on the patio. Two coffee shops within a few blocks for the early risers to walk to. Owners were very easy to work with. I recommend this house. We had a great time in it.
I can't imagine a better place for us to have had as home base during our son's wedding weekend than this spot. Room enough for everyone, perfect location, and cosy living area for all to sit around and reminisce. I know it would be a great place to use for family gatherings in better weather, with the delightful screened in porch and yard.
We enjoyed being able to walk to the pub and drive quickly over to Central Market. Having 3.5 bathrooms made it easy to get ready the day of the wedding, too.
Our memories of the beautiful wedding are even better because of our "home."
This is truly your home away from home. Except BETTER! TWO beautiful master suites, with hotel quality sheets. A quiet location when you needed a good night sleep and a comfortable place to feel like you could just hang out and enjoy! We came here for my husband's 50th birthday for the F1. It was MORE than comfortable for the four of us. The owners not only suggested the BEST restaurants in town, they were here to greet us to their beautiful home. You feel like you are staying at your best friend's house, the way they treat you. Their home is a place we truly have the honor to rent again. Thank-you for the pleasure of staying in your home!
We had the best stay at this beautiful Austin Home. In town to celebrate our cousin's wedding....it really was like staying at a 5* Resort, but without all of the hassles. Thank you for sharing your families home with us! We look forward to returning! Best, The Griswolds.
So much good to say its hard to know where to start. Beautiful home that is as clean as it is pretty! Just minutes from nearly everything Austin has to offer. We stayed during one of the busiest weekends in Austin's history yet had no trouble getting around. We had 4 couples and all of us enjoyed the home and area. Stay here, you will be glad you did!
This house was fabulous! We were two families sharing and there was plenty of room. Our kids loved the swing set outside. Location was perfect. Short drive or walk to almost anything you'd need. Very modern and clean. Highly recommend this property! Thanks for everything!
This home is located in Rosedale, a beautiful neighborhood only a mile and a half north of the University of Texas. On a gorgeous tree-lined street, this home is a quiet retreat from the bustling shops and restaurants that surround it, including 26 Doors, Uchiko (best sushi in Austin), Taco Deli (best tacos in Austin), and UpperCrust Bakery. Rosedale is also part of Austin's central medical hub, with Seton's main hospital just down the street, and the Heart Hospital only blocks away as well. Central Market, the local grocery store, is a short walk away, and boasts a wide array of organic produce and local products, as well as a huge playscape for kids and live music Th-Sat nights. Ramsey Park and Pool are also only a few minutes walk away, as is the Draught House, the famous local pub, if you'd like a cool beer after a fun day of hanging out in Austin. The shops and restaurants in NoBu (North Burnet) are also only a short walk away and include local favorites like the Omlettry and Torchy's Tacos, as well as yoga studios, wine bars, and thrift shops. And, of course, UT is at your doorstep, so you are only a 3-4 minute drive to campus for football games and other campus events.
