Live La Vida Local in beautiful La Serena! Private, peaceful and romantic, nestled in the trees with no other units in the building, La Serena is architect designed and purpose-built for guests. Completed in January 2016, La Serena has all the amenities of a luxury home: Kohler and Mirabelle fixtures, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, private outdoor living space.
Up the stairs is an open landing leading to the screened deck high in the tree-tops. What a great place for morning coffee or an evening libation! Open the double French doors to combine the living area and deck creating an inviting indoor-outdoor space. High ceilings, white oak hardwood floors, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, contemporary furnishings and abundant natural light grace the interior. The bright spa bath has plenty of gorgeous granite counter top space, dual under mount sinks, under counter drawers and cabinets, a large mirror, Mirabelle and Kohler fixtures. The over-sized shower is enclosed by a frameless glass door and outfitted with Kohler Purist shower head, a balance bar, foot rests and a product niche. Fluffy white towels and soap are handy.
The well-lit bedroom boasts a king-size bed and high quality linens; wall-mounted reading lamps are within easy reach. Room darkening window coverings encourage lazy mornings! No need to live out of a bag; a roomy closet and ample shelf space lets you unpack and relax! TV & Internet are Uverse fiber. Remote controlled mini-split units provide quiet and comfortable heating and cooling. The kitchen is equipped with microwave oven, coffee maker, blender, dishes and cookware, German-made Blomberg dishwasher and gas range. I've placed coffee, tea, sweetener and creamer to get you started your first morning. You'll notice the mini-island with micro in the kitchen area. One of my best ideas: it's on wheels! Move it around to serve as a pass-through counter from the kitchen window to the deck, put it at the corner of the kitchen for extra prep space, place against the dining room wall for a handy bar The full-sized refrigerator has lower drawer freezer. The glass top table is a good size for casual dining as well as for spreading out a map or taking care of paperwork.
La Serena has an 8x10' storage and laundry exclusively for you. Bring your bikes, your golf clubs, your sports stuff. This windowless room has an electronic lock, houses a washer & dryer and space to keep items you don't want underfoot. Parking is off-street on a concrete drive; a dedicated walkway leads to La Serena.
A City alley runs behind the property. This means an extra measure of privacy since no back yards are directly behind you. It also means you can step out the back gate and walk down the alley - a little short-cut to get down the hill to Barton Springs Road, Zilker Park, the bus stop. Check the Capital Metro web site for bus details. Our bus is #30, goes downtown. Lots of times we don't bother with car or parking to go to Pecan Street Festival or try the newest watering hole downtown.
A mix of treasured vintage cottages, historic mansions, restored ramblers and sleek modern showplaces, Zilker neighborhood is picturesque, interesting, friendly and fun. If you're in the habit of an evening stroll, come out. Our streets are quiet and walkable, the neighbors enjoy visiting, taking the dog around the block, checking out the progress of the latest new buildings. Join us and live La Vida Local in Zilker!
