Recently renovated cottage built in 1931 located in the heart of the Smithville historic district! This bright and inviting home is perfect for your next trip to one of the most charming, historic small towns in Texas. Centrally located, it's a short 5-10 minute walk to restaurants, cafes and antique shops on Main Street, the famous "Hope Floats" house, and the scenic Colorado River. Brew a cup of coffee and enjoy morning strolls along the quiet tree-lined streets of the designated historic district and admire the well-preserved late 1800s Victorian architecture. Open a bottle of wine and take in the fresh evening air on the screened in porch or curl up on the couch in the cozy living room. If you'd like to spend a day or two exploring outside Smithville, the cottage is conveniently located within a 15 min drive to Bastrop, 20 mins to La Grange, and 35 mins to the world famous antiquing mecca Round Top, Texas. The house is a straight shot 35 minute drive on Hwy 71 from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

The space
The house has a fully equipped kitchen, including a gas range, oven, refrigerator, and coffee maker. There is a family-size dining table and a great living room. The back screened in porch is spacious and a great place to hang out.

We were inspired to take on our own “Fixer Upper” after our own home was featured on HGTV's Fixer Upper (Season 5, Episode 1 “Austin Couple Finds Charm in Waco” -- the one with the moon door and Papa Hardy!) Matt is originally from Kansas City and Samantha grew up in Phoenix. We met in San Francisco in 2012 and moved to Texas in 2015. Samantha is VP of Brand at the Magnolia Network and Matt is a Managing Partner at Cowboy Minerals. Want to know more about us? Just ask! :)
