This exclusive listing comes without a price, presumably because if you have to ask—well, you know the rest. The estate’s main event is a two-story mansion, originally built in 1939 and remodeled in 2012. It’s located in historic Judges Hill—the appropriately named area in west downtown, close to courthouses and the Capitol and one of Austin’s first residential neighborhoods.

The estate-style property features three different residences totaling 6,647 square feet on its 0.35-acre lot. The main house takes center stage. It has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as a total of four levels, if you count the rooftop terrace accessed from the upstairs game room and the basement studio apartment. In addition, there is a detached guest house with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and its own kitchen.

The chef’s kitchen features luxuriously curated finishes and high-end appliances that include a Wolf range, double Kitchen Aid dishwashers, and a Sub-Zero refrigerator-freezer.

A media room, sunroom, and enclosed poolside seating area provide more space for entertaining and contribute to the indoor-outdoor flow of the updated home’s open plan.

The master bathroom features a clawfoot soaking tub and separate shower, and all the bedrooms and bathrooms have wood or beautiful hard-tile floors.

The second-floor game room opens to a rooftop terrace with downtown views.

A ground-floor studio apartment has a kitchenette and laundry facilities as well as a workshop and built-in bunk beds.

Behind the main home is a detached, two story guest house built in 2009. It has a full kitchen, living and dining rooms, and two master bedrooms, both with private bathrooms. It also has its own covered poolside patio featuring a full outdoor kitchen with a built-in gas grill.

The main home and guest house center around an infinity-edge pool with a spiraling slide and a lush back yard that has an in-ground trampoline. In the main home, a sliding, five-paneled, Jeld-Wen glass door connects indoor and outdoor living spaces that can host up to 20 guests comfortably.
