This luxury house is great for large groups, wedding parties, film crews....
This house was built in 2008 by one of Austin’s leading architects. We chose the lot for its size and proximity to Downtown and in order to save a 100+ year old oak tree that was going to be cut down.
You enter the house and immediately come upon a huge living area with 12 foot ceilings. The floor plan is all open – the dining, living and kitchen area is one huge space. The kitchen was designed for a gourmet chef. The marble counters are enormous. There is a 6 burner stove with an over-sized oven. All appliances are stainless steal.
The house was built with all allergen free material and is Eco-Friendly. There is only sustainable wood floor – no carpet. The paint is no-voc. The insulation is jean insulation – not the pink stuff. The cabinets are formaldehyde free…. The house sits 6 feet off the ground which makes you feel like you are living in a big tree house.
The dishware and wine glasses are high end. All looks onto large windows that look out onto the tree in the backyard.
The dining room area has a large steel table that sits 6-10. The chairs are hans-wegner wishbone design. The living room area has an organic couch from G Romano that is on top of an oushak rug. The fireplace is gas but burns real wood – not those fake logs. These rooms look onto the large windows that look on to the tree as well.
The backyard is one of the largest in the area with great trees.
Off the dining area is a full bath next to a lounging room with a big screen tv, blue ray player and lots of movies.
The big bedrooms and 2 additional full bathrooms are upstairs. Big windows, design furniture, comfortable beds and linens are in each room.
The location is great. The house is in a quiet up-scale neighborhood that is still only a short walk to Zilker park where ACL (Austin City Limits) is and the river (Town Lake or Lady Bird Lake) that runs through downtown. In addition, you can walk to several nice restaurants, a grocery store and a great juice place – JuiceLand. We are only 5 minutes by car or bus to downtown Austin where all the shops, restaurants and bars are located. The popular 2nd street is only 4 minutes away.
There are 5 bedrooms:
- #1 - King bed
- #2 - Queen bed
- #3 - Queen bed (folds into a sofa too) in room with the TV
- #4 - Full bed
- #5 - Full bed
- We also have 2 blow up mattresses available upon request.
- We have plenty of towels and linens for your entire group
We are a nice family that moved from San Francisco to Austin about 10 years ago. We like traveling, fun family time and great food.
We travel frequently and thus can share our great house with others when we are gone.
The kitchen with the stools around the island is amazing for cooking or just looking out onto the huge oak tree with some great coffee or wine.
