Historic South Austin home near trendy attractions - AC & washer/dryer

This 102-year-old Victorian-style home has been fully restored with top-of-the-line environmentally conscious materials. Enjoy cool conferences and festivals while in town at SXSW, and lively musical experiences at ACL -- both within two miles of the home.

In the fully-furnished kitchen, the sink and built-in ironing board closet came out of the owner's grandmother's house and were refurbished for your use. Due to the unusual nature of the antique stove and for safety, a countertop convection oven and a microwave oven to use in place of the antique oven are provided. (The cooktop, though, has been retrofitted with four electric burners.) In addition, you'll find many modern energy-efficient appliances: dishwasher, garbage disposal, ice maker, toaster, coffee maker, hot water pot, and a blender with a frozen Margarita recipe handy.

The master bedroom includes direct access to the front porch and features nine-foot ceilings as well a large bay window. Enjoy the quaint sitting area and an en-suite master bathroom with a large walk-in shower with heated tile floors. A stained glass window lets in light, but maintains privacy.

The guest bedroom has an angled ceiling and features a 1920's metal frame double bed. This cozy, private room has a walk-in closet and direct access to a lovely period bathroom with a refinished vintage clawfoot tub with a shower attachment and a beautiful vanity made from an antique tile and marble washstand. This bath also has a stained glass window and heated tile floor.

Each bedroom features a ceiling fan, a flat-screen TV with a DVD player, and a clock radio with an iPod dock.

The gardens surrounding the Heritage House and the other two buildings on the property, planted in native flowers and shrubs, are open for your use. Ancient Pecan, Live Oak, and Red Bud trees provide ample shade.

Exclusive to the vacation rental is an antique brick patio (with an interesting history) with a 3-tiered fountain and native plants, under a hundreds-of-years-old Live Oak tree. A crushed granite walkway circles the grounds where you will find shaded seating and tables and another large lighted, arbor-covered patio sitting area for your use. In the rear, a rock patio has seats and tables made from huge salvaged architectural stone pieces found on the lot. It sits next to the oriental garden featuring a dock and bridge, fountain, waterfall, and Koi pond. Behind the oriental garden is our on-site caretaker's residence.
