About the property

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 in each room, and an additional loft living area, which also accommodates two twin beds, a full bathroom and walk-in closet. The guest ½ bath is accessible from the main living area.

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.

About Lucija

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 house in 2009

Why Lucija chose Texas

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

What makes this house unique

The vaulted ceilings in the master bathroom are truly unique.

Will definitely return!

  • 5 of 5

Lucy welcomed us and showed us around the house upon our arrival and we immediately fell in love with her beautiful house. (Pictures do not do it justice!) The location is perfect -- not too far from downtown and was so peacefully quiet. My family stayed here during our wedding weekend. (Our wedding was at the Four Seasons) The house was more than perfect and Lucy's hospitality was so warm and welcoming. We will definitely return! Thank you SO MUCH, Lucy!!!

Fun Home, Great Host!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Lucy's eclectic Austin property. It's such an odd, neat house, with plenty of room for the ten of us who stayed, far enough away from the city to seem secluded, yet still somehow right in the heart of it. Lucy was a super-nice host who was available to answer any question. Would highly recommend to anyone staying in Austin.

Architectural Delight - Superb!

  • 5 of 5

What a fun house to spend your vacation in! We enjoyed the house itself as much any attraction we visited on our trip. The master bedroom suite with its amazing bath was like a vacation all on its own. The home had tons of space for a large family post-wedding stay. Everyone had their own private sleeping space and bathroom - awesome! Our party consisted of family from two countries and three different states and everybody loved it. Outside and inside, we were never crowded and the amenities were plentiful. The kitchen had everything required to create our meals - even a wine fridge and there was space at the kitchen bar for everyone to hang out while the cooks were working. The outside area was no less wonderful with great landscaping, lots of tables and chairs to relax and enjoy the view and a variety of patio areas. We enjoyed the decor inside as well - artwork and comfortable furniture. The owner, Lucy was wonderful - extremely accommodating, receptive and helpful! Definitely a 5 star stay!

Beautiful, clean and original

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at Lucy's property! Everything was very clean and comfortable, with plenty of bedroom and social spaces. The architecture was so unique and beautiful, and the views spectacular.

Lucy was responsive to all of our needs while we stayed here - Despite being out of the country on vacation for a portion of our own trip.

This property is definitely a gem and I highly recommend it for large gatherings with family and friends.

Absolutely lovely. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect home.

  • 5 of 5

We used this house bc I was graduating and I was going to have about 14 people staying the night. There were beds for everyone. There was even a crib! The kitchen was so large and easy to get around. My family lovedddd it. My grandmother that's nearing 90yo had a little trouble going up steps, and my 2 yo niece as well. But truly it was the PERFECT PLACE to be. Lucy was so accommodating. Lucy loves her home and wants you to love it too. So when she explains the strict rules, it's only out of the love of her heart for the house. And I don't blame her!! I'd want everyone to treat that house well.

You can tell how much time and energy goes into the house.

It doesn't feel like a hotel. It truly feels like a home. And it wasn't that awkward feeling of "this is someone else's home." It really felt like our home. It was so welcoming and inviting.

I HIGHLY recommend this house.
