About the property

Luxury Austin Home - 0.5 Miles To Barton Springs Pool! 1 Mile To ACL & More!

Leave the car at home & Walk to it all!

Any local will tell you that there's simply no other neighborhood that can deliver the ultimate Austin experience like Barton Hills can. This is the perfect home for your Austin vacation!

With a unique proximity to anything and everything worth seeing and doing in Austin, this 2 story, 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath luxury custom home sits in the hills just above Barton Springs Pool and Zilker Park - the venue for Austin City Limits (ACL).

Immediately outside the front door of our home is a brand new Bike Lane that, for safety purposes, is barricaded off from traffic.

Walk the bike lane directly to Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Park, Austin City Limits (ACL), Restaurant Row, Town Lake Hike & Bike Trail, Lady Bird Lake, Canoe Rentals, Bike Rentals, Disc Golf, Zilker Botanical Gardens, UMLAUF Sculpture Garden and more!

With 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths up, and a Gym/5th bedroom with half bath down, this home provides plenty of comfortable sleeping space for your vacation.

The large and open floor plan between the living room and Chef's kitchen is spacious, warm and inviting. The double doors from the living room open up immediately to our large furnished patio. The patio is sandwiched between two large and healthy Pecan Trees which, many years ago, used to be part of a larger Pecan Orchid. A third Pecan tree sits in the corner of the spacious side yard.

Modern amenities include flat panel televisions throughout, stainless steel Jenn-Air Chef's appliances with double ovens, soft close drawers, a wine refrigerator, BBQ gas grill, and more!

The house is also equipped with a high-end security system, cable, internet, phone, and an over-sized two car garage with a foosball table.

About Mike Rubin

My name is Mike and I first moved to Austin in 1998 to attend the University of Texas.

After finishing law school, my wife and I moved into this beautiful house and started our family and our careers. My brother John and I operate the Rubin Law Firm, a civil litigation practice, which offices on 6th Street & Congress Avenue in downtown Austin.

I have loved Austin since the first time I visited the city and we never plan on leaving.

Mike Rubin purchased this house in 2008

Why Mike Rubin chose Austin

We selected this house because of its unique proximity to anything and everything worth seeing and doing in this great city. Any local will tell you that 78704, and particularly Barton Hills, is the jewel of Austin. In my opinion, there's simply no other neighborhood that can deliver the ultimate Austin experience like Barton Hills can. It's The best.

What makes this house unique

Walk to it all, or take a cab ride to the heart of downtown - you are in the center of Everything!!

We Hit a Home Run! Girl's Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a place! Seven women shared this beautifully appointed home for four nights and never had to fight over a bathroom! This home fit all our needs - we loved the open floor plan from the kitchen to the family room. We had coffee on the back patio every morning in a very private backyard. The kitchen was perfectly set up with lots of extras like paper towels, storage bags, spices, etc. which made our shopping minimal. It was immaculate and spacious. Mike left us such helpful information from how to operate the washer, to where to have dinner. We could not have been more pleased. Thanks Mike, for providing such a wonderful place for us to celebrate! P.S. We love Austin!!!

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home for our family reunion. The beds are very comfortable and there are enough bathrooms for everyone. Everything is top of the line and the owner thought of everything to make our stay very comfortable! The location is perfect, near Lady Bird lake where we went bike riding on the 10 mile trail. Very close to the city where we were able to take a bus tour of the city. The home is highly recommended!!

Beautiful local home for Austin visits

  • 5 of 5

The best part of this house is the Owner, Mike was very accommodating and eager to make sure you are satisfied. I'm a firm believer in customer service and kudos to Mike.

The house is very spacious for our needs. I had visited there for my wife's birthday and we decided to rent this house with our close friends. There was more than enough room to fit everyone. The Master bedroom could fit a 2nd King bed if your wanted.

If you are visiting for ACL this would be the place to stay, it is literally 5 min walk to Zilkder park. I'll probably consider this as option one for next years ACL.

Beautiful home in a great area!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in this home in Austin. We were in town for my son's wedding and the events surrounding. Great neighborhood. Close to the airport and downtown. Lovely private yard. Everything we needed was right there. Our guests could not have been more comfortable. Appliances all new and easy to use. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
