Mid-century modern gem in South Congress with library & cedar hot tub

You'll find the Novel Retreat in the heart of Austin's coveted South Congress area! A 3,000 sq ft, mid-century modern charmer, this beautiful escape puts you within walking distance of Austin's eclectic epicenter. Although this home is close to everything, boasting the best of both worlds, it also carries a sense of privacy and peace. Here, your days can be spent enjoying the luxurious outdoor living space with alfresco dining, a cedar hot tub, an infrared sauna, loungers, a hammock, a wet bar, an outdoor shower, and a grill.

When you need a break from the sun, the interior of the Novel Retreat showcases a museum-like feel with its stunning international art, comfortable/eclectic furnishings, and modern amenities. Cozy up on the living room's leather seating while the chef of your group utilizes the gourmet kitchen's stainless steel appliances, ample meal prep space, and many nifty gadgets.

Follow the home's fun quirks and carefully curated mementos into the stocked library. Book lovers will adore this space's incredible collection of 1000+ rare novels, two-story library ladders, and plush seating - perfect for afternoon reading sessions. Aside from the library, the Novel Retreat also boasts an in-home gym.

With equally colorful and plush bedrooms, there will be no arguments over room selection. Additional sleeping arrangements include multiple oversized sofas. The home's bathrooms are equally impressive with their gleaming surfaces, walk-in showers, oversized sinks, and funky patterns. A private washer/dryer and central air-conditioning round out the home's interior perks.

When you can pull yourself away from this unique space, get out and explore the nearby Boardwalk at Lady Bird Lake, Blunn Creek Nature Preserve, the Cathedral of Junk, the Texas Capitol, and, of course, all of the city's popular restaurants, shops, and museums. A truly memorable vacation awaits you and your favorite people. Book now and enjoy Austin vibes at their finest!
