Austin Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 1 guest half bath, sleeps 10

A retreat in the hills of the Barton Creek Preserve sits two miles from Lost Creek, Barton Creek, One World Theater, and Austin Country Clubs; and six miles from the Downtown Center, the southern edges of the University of Texas, and Zilker Park. This rambling, stone and glass house sits on expansive property and a cul-de-sac. It is a dream vacation home that provides the privacy, space and rural quiet in a suburban area that can accommodate visitors, short term lessees, and special events in the area.

The house has 4 bedrooms (one is a loft), 4 1/2 baths plus a casita with 1 bedroom,1 full bath. and a small kitchenette. There are King or Queen size beds in each bedroom with spacious bathrooms, walk-in closets and mini-fridges in each room, and an additional loft living area, which also accommodates a queen-sized sleeper, full bathroom and walk-in closet. The ½ bath is accessible from the main living area. The master bath has indoor negative edge spa.

There is a full custom designed kitchen, pantry space, full laundry, breakfast nook and separate dining area for 12, a bar, and plenty of room for entertaining or sprawling in two inside living areas. Stone Adriatic-designed decks around the house reveal secluded Hill Country views, classic Texas landscaping, and breathtaking sunsets. Steps away is a trail down into the canyon preserve and a Lost Creek tributary: its pools, waterfalls and wildlife.

The furnishings are ample and a cozy eclectic mix of contemporary and Austin eclectic. There is also a separate, rustic casita available as an additional guesthouse. It is a studio design with a full bathroom and kitchenette.

I am energetic, happy, caring and fun loving Austinite. I was born in Croatia and got to Texas as fast as I could!

Lucija purchased this estate in 2009

The house has the reel of a very private retreat. It is so peaceful and relaxing, yet all of Austin's fantastic entertainment is easily accessible.

The vaulted ceilings in the master bathroom are truly unique.

Beautiful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 12, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
My family and I rented from Lucy recently for my daughter's wedding. The home was perfect for our family. It was very relaxing during this stressful time. Upon arrival, the place was immaculate. Lucy called immediately and wanted to make sure that everything was how it should be and asked if I had any questions. The master bathroom was the perfect place for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready for the wedding. When the photographers arrived to take pictures before the wedding, they were so impressed with the house that they took over 100 pictures before taking any of our daughter or her wedding party. The casita was the best place for the groom to stay so he would not see the bride the day of the wedding. All 12 of us had plenty of room to sleep and move about without getting under each other's feet. We agree as a family that we can't wait to rent this property again. Thank you, Lucy, for allowing us to experience your most beautiful, ecclectic home.

Pictures do not do this rental justice! The layout of the house and property had so many custom details and interesting additions that it was a joy to discover what was around each corner! The master bath is a masterpiece! You have to experience this luxurious spa-like atmosphere first hand. Perfect for our family get together; plenty of space, beds and bathrooms for all. The place was private and secluded yet close enough to access Austin restaurants and shopping easily. Lucy was a wonderful hostess. She made everyone feel at home and welcomed us as though she had known us for a long time. Very gracious!
Thank you Lucy and hope to see you again... Suzy, Dusty and Rachel

The house was wonderful.

Everything about the house was custom made by artists and artisans, one of a kind, including the architecture. My sibling's families were with us for a wedding and everyone found it fascinating, including the vaulted brick ceilings. How did they do that? If we had stayed an entire week I think my family would still be finding charming facets to the property. I wish we'd had the time to wander down into the basin to explore. I have lived in Austin off and on since the 1970s and it was a rare treat to find peace and quit with no bustling traffic noise. The rugged hill country vistas are almost impossible to find anymore so close to the city. It was quite romantic too. We loved our stay and hope to make it back again.

European Hillside! Fantastic Getaway for multi couples, extended families, business groups.

A week was simply not enough time to spend at this fascinating house in the hills of Austin. If your group is large, (and you can handle the variety of steps in a hillside house), this is the place to be. With five bathrooms and separate wings of the house, our extended families had plenty of group and individual space. TV's everywhere (except Casita), and large yard space. The eclectic European design and decor of this home will keep you talking about it for quite some time... and our local folks said, "this is SO Austin." Lucy & Doug are very, very friendly and accommodating so don't hesitate to call. A great house for groups of multiple couples and a great place for quiet hideaways or a walk through the woods & stream. We all want to come back. Thanks Lucy & Doug!!

Wonderful Experience!

Recently stayed in this wonderfully unique and spacious home with several girlfriends. We couldn't have asked for a better place to have a girls getaway, and even with 20+ girls we had enough room to sleep comfortably and visit with everyone all together. The owner was especially accommodating and had the house completely ready with extra beds/blankets/pillows for our large group. It was a great experience and I hope to stay there again :)
