Clean and minimalist in design, this guest house is perfect for when you need a quiet retreat during your trip to Austin. Renovated in 2014, the studio is located behind the main house with a private entry and outdoor deck with bench seating. Guests have complete indoor privacy and sound isolation, as the front house and studio are separated by a locked exterior breezeway. Large generous windows provide natural light to the open floor plan. Enjoy complimentary coffee and tea, while relaxing on the couch or seated outdoors on the deck. The futon doubles as additional sleeping space when needed. A mini-split air conditioning unit provides heating and cooling to the studio and a ceiling fan provides additional comfort. Enjoy streaming and wireless internet on your laptop. Built in 1925, the main home is a piece of Texas history - the home was once owned by the Petmecky's, the famous gunsmith and outfitters family who supplied spurs and rifles to Sam Houston and the Texas Rangers. Selling guns and equipment to outdoorsmen, they owned Austin's longest operating small business on South Congress for over 100 years. Their home marked the northeast corner of Austin’s City Limits until 1935. You'll enjoy your stay in this corner of history!
