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.

A perfect villa for a relaxed vacation

  • 5 of 5

The villa is superb.This place turned out to be exactly what we wanted, a calm and quiet place to enjoy a relaxed weekend with friends. The villa is in Austin mountains amidst wilderness. The house was very kept and clean. The interiors, the backyard, the kitchen everything was perfect. We had fun doing the trails near the house followed by a perfect barbeque meal in the evening in the backyard. The owner Lucy is a very sweet and considerate lady.We were 10 adults with a kid and a baby. Lucy didn't charge us extra for the lil ones :) Also we had some issue with the AC in the house but she was very prompt to resolve the problem and make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. I have already recommended this place to few of my other friends.

Luxurious Getaway

This is the second year my group of friends has stayed at this property - and for good reason! The location, the amenities, the beauty of this place truly set the tone for our annual gathering. The large bedrooms, living areas, kitchen, outdoor space all provided an atmosphere of comfort and luxury. I highly recommend. Simply lovely!

A perfect home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family hosted Thanksgiving here, and the setting could not have been more perfect! The homeowner is so gracious and had everything ready for us to walk in and celebrate together. The location in Austin had everything to offer. We will definitely be back and make this our destination home whenever we have an event in Austin!!!!

Can't tell a book by it's cover and this home has to be seen to be appreciated. I must say I wasn't prepared for the approach of this home, but it is a well kept secret. It was full of surprises. We had 10 people staying there, each having our own bed and our own space to find privacy. The nooks and crannies were so appreciated. It was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. It does have a lot of steps so not real handicap accessible. The outside was delightful to spend some evening time under the Texas stars listening to the sounds of nature. I would definitely return to this gem and highly recommend it for a large group. It was also very convenient to restaurants and shoppin. Lucy was the best hostess taking care if our needs and even putting up a christmas tree to enjoy.
