About Sharon Drinkwine
I'm an artist, designer, foodie, film buff and collector of Outsider Art. (I'm an antique show, junk shop and eBay addict!). I designed my house to revolve around the kitchen and the art studio, the two places where I'm most happy. Well, make that three places, I'm happy swimming in my pool too. And oh yeah, I'm happy hanging out with friends on my porch, eating fresh food we just dragged home from the Sunset Valley Farmers Market (only two blocks away). And I'm happy taking walks around my neighborhood visiting the horses and hiking on the nearby nature trails. If you’re wondering why I’m so darned happy its because I was born and raised in upstate New York, where the winters are long and cold. Now that I live in Austin, where the weather is warm, the people are friendly and the culture is lively, I'm in heaven!
Sharon Drinkwine purchased this House in 2009

This home is absolutely beautiful! The pool and outdoor area was amazing and where we spent most of our time. Sharon was a great host and very quick at responding. Would definitely recommend staying here!
Sharon was a great host and the house was even better than described. A perfect weekend getaway in Austin! Would certainly come back again.
This property is gorgeous and the host is so welcoming and attentive.
The house was nicely designed and quite spacious for our large group. We had lots of fun in the pool, grilling food on the grill, and toasting marshmallows at the fireplace.
UT Graduation weekend.
Beautiful home, with all the amenities. House is fully stocked, we didn't lack.for anything. Twelve people fit comfortably.
Owner has done a great job and was very helpful and considerate. Overall a great experience.
Perfect Weekend Getaway
The pictures don't do this house justice. It was the perfect for our group of 11 girls to stay. It's close to everything Austin has to offer. The pool and patio were great to hangout, eat, and drink. Sharon is a great host who was very accommodating and offered up everything for use. I would definitely recommend for large groups!!
Not only is Austin the live music capital of the world, but its also known for its many outdoorsy entertainment options. Only two blocks away from the Loft House is a trail head to the Sunset Valley nature trail, which offers several miles of scenic hiking. The Violet Crown hiking trailhead, which connects to Barton Creek in the center of Austin, is only one mile away. Better yet, one of my favorite weekend morning activities is to pack a picnic, drive to Taco Deli (1500 Spyglass Drive - a ten minute drive), eat one of their awesome breakfast tacos then cross the street to the Barton Creek Greenbelt Trailhead. Walking toward Barton Springs (east), you’ll pass several beautiful swimming holes where you can set up your picnic and cool off in the creek. You can also rent paddle boards and kayaks right in the middle of town on Town Lake. There are so many outdoor options here, just let me know your interests and I’ll send you more complete information.
