Live the lifestyle of a former president with a stay at this historic 6BR/8BA estate, once belonging to President Lyndon B. Johnson. Located just 3 miles from downtown and a half-mile from Lake Austin, this recently remodeled estate has a gorgeous pool, sport court, and multiple kitchens and living areas.
"[This Austin home] had charm," writes Lady Bird Johnson in her oral history book, "and was a happy part of our lives for a good many years."
And that’s just the beginning.
INSIDE LBJ’S ESTATE
This Estate recently underwent a large-scale renovation, completed in May 2015. The flawless interior features two living areas, two full kitchens, and separate entrances to each area—an ideal set-up for company retreats, multi-family getaways, reunions, or any situation where time together AND personal space are important.
Reserve the formal living area for cocktails and conversation (or coffee and strategizing). Add a fire in the fireplace if it’s chilly. In your downtime, head to the 2nd living area above the garage. With a 60” flat-screen TV, plush leather sofas, and pool and games tables, it’s easy to envision the former President hosting his confidantes here (minus the flat-screen, of course!).
The second kitchen is adjacent to this space. Keep snacks and drinks handy, or use it to supplement the main kitchen when preparing a big feast.
Don’t miss the truly spectacular outdoor area. With full sport court, a pristine swimming pool, and a complete outdoor kitchen, this space was designed for large-scale entertaining.
Up to 12 people can sleep here in 6 bedrooms, which include 2 expansive master suites with king-sized beds, flat-screen TVs and luxurious attached baths. Two more bedroom suites have queen-sized beds.
The TV room has a 60” flat-screen, plus queen-sized sofa bed. Kids will love piling into the bunkroom! The room has a full-over-full bunk set and a twin-over-twin bunk with a twin trundle, plus a 20” flat-screen TV.
The outdoor pool, tennis court and basketball court can only be used during 9am - 10pm.
This historic estate occupies the perfect place between Austin and the lake. Tucked into a quiet, tree-dappled neighborhood, you will find both peaceful seclusion and easy access to downtown, just 3 miles away. Easily access kayak rentals, trails, and Zilker Park over the AHS footbridge near the home.
Don't forget to visit the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, just a 17-minute drive away. This preserve and education center (with 650 species of native Texas plants) captures the environmentalist spirit of the First Lady who once called this Austin vacation rental "home."
Bring your clubs; there’s a golf course just a half-mile from the estate. Or rent a boat and explore Lake Austin, also just a half-mile away. On the lakeshore, you’ll find Hula Hut, a local institution and luau-themed waterfront restaurant serving up margaritas and “Tiki-Mex” cuisine.
The LBJ Presidential Library is just a 15 minute drive from the home on the East side of UT Austin's campus. Please see their website for a rotation of exhibits and plan a nice afternoon trip for the whole family!
The City of Austin limits occupancy to six unrelated adults.
