Our 5BR/3BA home is located deep on the side of a heavily-forested valley with 8 acres of land and great views just outside of Downtown Austin. While the home feels like you are miles away into the Hill Country, it is only a 9 minute drive to the famous Hula Hut restaurant on Lake Austin, and only 10 minutes to Zilker Park and the ACL festival! We purchased this old Austin estate from the original owners and have renovated it to use as our retreat in the forest. While the home is not brand-new construction with 5-star luxury in mind, we think it is a perfect place for groups who want to experience what Austin is all about - authentic Hill Country area with the nearby Urban vibe. Whether you are on a family vacation, reunion, in town for one of the many events like SXSW, ACL, or Formula 1 – our home has the perfect amount of privacy combined with a great location nearby to everything Austin has to offer. The main floor of our home has a large family room, separate dining room, den area, fully-equipped kitchen and a guest bedroom with full bath and a private entrance to the back deck! There is plenty of room to entertain friends and family inside and just outside on the massive pool deck or screened-in porch. The master bedroom is upstairs and features a king size bed and attached bathroom with separate large Jacuzzi tub and shower. Also upstairs you'll find three more bedrooms and another full bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed and desk space; a third bedroom also features a queen bed; and the fourth bedroom comes with a twin bed. The second full bath has a tub/shower and is located off of the upstairs hallway. Although the home itself is very comfortable, the property might be the best part. The house sits up on top of eight acres surrounded by lush oak trees, natural rock walls, and beautiful Hill Country. Enjoy a dip in our pool while looking out over the Texas hill side or kick back and read a book on our huge deck under the shade trees - hard to believe you're only 15 minutes from downtown Austin. The unique ranch estate has a lot of history complete with antique stables and a barn that are not intended for guest use. Our pool and deck are fabulous, and a great spot to take a dip and beat the Texas heat!
Located just west of Downtown Austin, the home is in the heart of the old Westlake Hills neighborhood, a highly sought-after location for Austinites to live. The property backs up to the Wild Basin Wilderness preserve which consists of 227 acres of Hill Country woodlands and provides a habitat for the endangered Golden–Cheeked Warbler as well as many other native plant and wildlife species. The Wild Basin Wilderness preserve has many beautiful hiking trials for visitors to enjoy. The property is only 10-15 minutes from Downtown or South Congress, and is only 3-4 minutes from some great Westlake restaurants like The Grove, Taco Deli, P. Terry's Burgers, and Izumi Sushi. It is also only a 3-4 minute drive from HEB - a major supermarket, and only a 10 minute drive from the Barton Creek Mall. Try Uber or Lyft; rides start around $15 and you won't have the hassle of parking downtown!
The City of Austin limits occupancy to six unrelated adults.
