A PIECE OF AUSTIN HISTORY -
The McDonald-McGowan House was built in 1876 and has served as a residence to mayors and governors over the years. A stunning and unique example of Second Empire architecture with a traditional mansard roof and scrolled ironwork, the property was lovingly restored in the ‘70s to honor the original designs and has been well-preserved as a boutique.
A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY-
Featuring three floors, multiple separate rooms, two kitchens and several bathrooms, the house is perfect for a downtown residence, an upscale office, retail space, bed-and-breakfast or event space. The back garden is large and hosts a gazebo and separate carriage house plus five private parking spaces. The architecture and finishes guarantee an impressive space regardless of the use, visitors will marvel at the original tile floors and brick interior walls, elaborate plasterwork and the two-story glassed-in conservatory opening up to the yard. This is an opportunity to preserve historic craftsmanship for future generations to enjoy. *NOTE ON BATH COUNT: All bathtubs/showers are capped, except for the carriage house bath.
INCREDIBLE CENTRAL LOCATION-
Located just steps from both UT and the Capitol, the property is right in the center of everything in Austin. Walk to the Bob Bullock History Museum, the Blanton Museum, the AT&T Conference Center or even Austin-favorite Clay Pit for dinner. Minutes off I-35, it can be reached from multiple access points.
