About this listing
The rate of $1,092 per night includes a 15 percent tax required to be paid to state and local governments.
This custom-built, 2008 'pier and beam' home includes 4 bedrooms/3.5 baths and oak hardwoods throughout the main common areas downstairs. The bedrooms are luxuriously appointed with John Robshaw textiles, vintage quilts, and down pillows.
There are two Master suites, one upstairs and one downstairs, and both include double sinks and walk-in showers. You can cook a mean meal on the Wolf stove in the subway-tiled kitchen and, weather permitting, open up the wall of french doors between the kitchen and outside screened patio and mingle over some wine.
Your kids can enjoy the park and pool only a few blocks away in the summer, the fenced backyard, or, if you need some quiet, you can situate them in an upstairs loft, which is stocked with books and a 32' LCD TV. The spacious living room downstairs includes a baby grande piano, gas fireplace on with a switch, comfortable seating, a 14' beamed ceiling, and a 42' LCD TV. Sonos speaker system in living room and kitchen. It's a spacious and comfortable place to hang out after a fun day of soaking up Austin, or can be a lovely place to stretch and read a book as the sun pours in the huge windows that run along the whole front of this beautiful home.
The house is walking distance (quarter mile) from cool places like Draught House (famous pub with fifty varieties of beer), Uchiko (award winning sushi), Taco Deli (simply the best tacos in town), and Upper Crust (fantastic local bakery). If you must, a Starbucks is equally close, but Houndstooth Coffee is the best in the city and is just as close. Central Market is a premier grocery store with many organics, and prepared foods to choose from less than half a mile away.
The garage, attic, and some of the closets are reserved for us, but the rest of the house is yours.

This place would love your review
When you book this place, here’s where your review will show up!
My husband is a sixth generation native Texan -- and an Aggie. We have a mixed marriage, as I am the first generation child of Indian immigrant parents -- and a Longhorn (Hook 'Em Horns!). My husband and I are both attorneys (SMU and NYU respectively). We have been married 13+ years and built this house when our girls were itty bittys--our youngest was only four months old! Our initials and handprints are embedded in the concrete driveway.
