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.
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
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.
The vaulted ceilings in the master bathroom are truly unique.
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.
I'll start with Lucy the host - she was great to deal with, met us at the house and checked that everything was OK during and after our stay which was excellent.
As for the house...WOW! I've never stayed in a place like this. The eclectic design and architecture, the space, and the beautiful view were all amazing. It's conveniently located near main roads and not very far from downtown at all.
We shall definitely be coming back here next time we're in Austin. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone!!
This property was absolutely perfect for the 4 old friends and 3 new friends to use while in Austin to attend the IMSA race at Circuit of the Americas. And the owner was the best. She was there to greet us and to make sure we were comfortable and showed us where everything was and how everything worked. She even played chauffer for the two ladies in our group and took them to the store to purchase what was needed during our stay. They house was very well equipped and the surroundings were quite unique and so much fun. There was plenty of room in the house for everyone to enjoy the group as well as alone time. Our hats off to Lucy.
Fantastic resort styled property located 7 miles west of downtown. This property had 6 beds in the main house and 3 beds in the guest house. The home is large enough to spread out and feel comfortable when we had 9 coworkers staying for a convention. Backyard is perfect for enjoying and entertaining with both gas and coal grills. The landscaping in the back yard was great for eating, entertaining and enjoying the Texas bluffs. House is outside of city limits so we were able to UBER to downtown and return to the airport. $15.00 UBER into town (20min ride) and about a $25.00 cab ride back at night. We enjoyed the nightlife on 6th street / South Congress and then returned back to this house tucked away in the bluffs. The house provided all the necessary items for our stay and local grocery store was about a mile away. Lucy the owner accommodated all of our needs and was available 24/7 for any questions and information about the area.
If you're heading to Austin and need a large house at an affordable rate... this is the place!
We will stay here again when back in Austin.
This was our 3rd time staying at Lucy's home while working at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center native plant sale. Highly recommend!
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!
