Also located just 3-4 blocks from West Lynn, a strip of great neighborhood restaurants and coffeeshop Cafe Medici, including Cipollina, Josephine House, Jeffreys, Zocolo and Galaxy Cafe. This neighborhood offers quick and easy 3 minute access to downtown, State Capital, Bullock Texas State History Museum & Imax, and the Blanton Museum of Art on The University of Texas campus.

Only a few blocks away is Pease Park which connects to all the downtown trails in Austin on bike or by foot without having to walk on a street. Shoal Creek winds through the park along the shady trail making for a pleasurable nature outing. Located within a few the streets from the Blanton Museum, the Texas History Museum, the LBJ Library, the Capitol, the IMAX Theatre, and the UT Campus this home is as central as you can be.
The estate was built in 1937 and is an Austin Landmark carrying a lot of history. It's an example of Classic Revival architecture, and through its restoration process all original hardwoods, moldings, and many other architectural traits have been refurbished. No expense has been spared to make this home an elegant, yet comfortable for today's standards.
For those who like to cook, the kitchen is a true chef's kitchen. It's central focus is a beautiful 60' La Cornue range equipped with a powerful gas stovetop, electric stovetop, gas grill, La Cornue's famous French Plate, and an electric and gas oven. There is a 12 foot island equipped with two full size sinks with commercial faucets, and four dish drawer dishwashers to make cleaning as easy as possible. It also has a full size SubZero refrigerator and full size SubZero freezer in order to fit any and all that you might need. The island also has seating for 6 people at the bar and there is a 60' TV to view while you cook, eat or entertain. Last, but not least, an old-fashioned butler's pantry with everything you need to make or serve a fabulous meal.
There is a deep 60's kidney shaped swimming pool which has been converted to salt water, a wonderful outdoor shower, a beautiful deck to enjoy the outdoors, and a beautiful front porch. The house is equipped with speakers for all common areas, including deck and swimming pool. There is a beautiful paneled media room so you can enjoy watching a game or movie with full surround sound system. There are two dining rooms, one for more intimate dinners of up to 6 people, and one for dinners of up to 12 people. The sitting areas are great as they offer many different conversation spots, or spots to curl up and read a book.

Gorgeous home with a great yard!
The house and yard were gorgeous! It’s in a GREAT location- just a quick and cheap Uber ride away from DT Austin. We stayed in the house for a girls weekend and didn’t want to leave!
There is only one thing I would consider before booking... For this property, check-in time is at 2 or 3pm and check-out time is at 11am. We had earlier flights getting in and later flights leaving and there wasn’t a place to leave our bags so that we could walk around w/out them (that I know of at least). I would recommend working with the property managers before you book to see if they can accommodate bags if your flights don’t align with check-in and out times.
Clean home, Great Neighborhood
Great location in central Austin. Clean and spacious. Nice to have a pool on those hot Texas afternoons!
Pictures don't do it justice
I booked the property for a girl's weekend and the pictures here do not do it justice. The rooms and bathrooms were spectacular, and because there isn't a TV in the largest room in the house, we ended up playing games and talking to each other, which made the weekend 100x more memorable. Would highly recommend for a girls trip or family reunion.
Allison, love love love your review of how wonderful it was to spend quality time together at Enfield Estate. That is really special.
Thank you for staying with Walker Luxury Vacation Rentals and we look forward to your return!!
Five star home & stay!
We planned a big girls weekend to Austin this April and we could not say more about how much we loved the home. The pictures are fantastic, and even they don’t do the gorgeous property justice. (Upon entering, numerous “wows” could be heard from our group…!) The home is extremely spacious, modern, expertly (and chicly!) decorated, and conveniently located for all things Austin whether the destination is downtown, uptown or the lake. And with a house this great, you honestly might want to spend some time at home too. (We did cocktails by the private backyard pool and a catered dinner around the long dining room table and loved the experience just as much as our meals out in the city.) The owners/ property managers are easy to work with too. You can count on them to be helpful with recommendations for in-home chefs, breakfast deliveries, and so on and so forth. Check-in and check-out are seamless processes, which I also greatly appreciated. On any subsequent visit to this amazing city, I know I speak for all of us when I say we hope to stay here again.

Gorgeous home, great amenities
We traveled to Austin for a bachelorette party with a large group of women. This house was stunning! The exterior was beautifully groomed, the backyard with the pool was fantastic for lounging outside, the inside was decorated gorgeously. The gigantic kitchen was so helpful for cooking for 12+ ladies. The home had everything we needed--a washer/dryer for some last minute laundry, wifi, keyless entry (so everyone could come/go as they pleased w/out worrying about who had a key, if a key got lost, etc.). Plenty of towels, sheets, pillows (even for my pillow-hogging sister!). The home has an alarm system, which helped us feel super safe. It was also set up to iNest(?) or some other smart home system, which was slightly confusing, especially since that was connected to wifi and the A/C was hooked up through up that system, but no big deal. The home is in a residential neighborhood (i.e., not in downtown), so we had to take uber/taxis everywhere we went--that's the only thing that would've made this experience better, if the home was situated so as not to need driving--but we knew that going in. Other than the number of taxis/uber rides we needed to call, everything was absolutely fantastic here!
Downtown is less than 2 miles! Nearby on West Lynn Street there are fantastic restaurants including Jeffery's, Josephine House, Cipolina, Zocola, Galaxy Cafe and a local grocery market Fresh Plus
