Since Camelot is a fictional place associated with the legendary King Arthur, and, as (per Wikipedia), Arthurian scholar Norris J. Lacy noted, ”is no where in particular, [it] can be anywhere."
That means one can play fast and loose when it comes to a creating a Camelot “style,” pulling from medieval/Gothic, Renaissance, neoclassical, and other Northern European tropes from past centuries. That’s definitely been done, in the most playful of spirits, in this Ren-Faire-ready property located in the Shady Hollow Estates area of Far South Austin.
The property includes secret gardens, a neoclassical-inspired pool, a “knight’s retreat” with stacked-stone interior, custom stained glass, narrative mural and stained wood, family crests, and Gothic moldings, among other unique features.
Located on 1.4 acres, it also looks to have a rambling walled back yard that, in addition to the pool and gardens, has olde-style decks, gazebos, patios, porches, a pond, and assorted statuary, as well as a storage building.
Built in 1992, the 5,505-square-foot home features five bedrooms and four bathrooms.
In addition to the two-story home, the property features detached guest quarters.
