Located in the East Austin neighborhood of Govalle, where arty Austin creative types have been migrating for years, this one-of-a-kind property (truly, really, not just brokerbabble) was until recently the home of Sekrit Theater, where property owner Beau RIchert screened films on a big outdoor screen in a section of the compound.

The main home on the lot, which is just over two acres, was built in 1937, measures 2,542 square feet, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and is a work of art on its own. It has a cathedral ceiling, wood and hard tile floors, and even such practical features as a tankless water heater.

That’s just the beginning, though. The lush, forested plot also contains a tiny house, a glass house/possible fancy greenhouse, a CinemaScope outdoor movie theater screen and projection house, a concessions stand with a French-Quarter-style patio, a grand pavilion, a “New Orleans house” (perhaps moved from there?), and a tiny log cabin.

In a bit of an understatement, the listing notes that the property has “unique architectural features”; some of those use materials from New Orleans and Texas landmarks.

Then there is the gorgeous grand pavilion, with a large cupola and romantic twinkle lights.

Brick pathways lead to a repurposed vintage school bus/lounge and lovely gardens, a fountain, and many other wonders.

There is custom lighting design throughout the property.
