Hickory House

8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 4 baths
European-inspired brick walls, contemporary interiors, and lush Texas-hill-country surroundings add up to this one-of-a-kind retreat 20 minutes from downtown Austin. While the sloping rooflines promise country charm, the open-plan interiors deliver unexpected sleekness in their exposed wood and steel beams. Walk to Barton Creek Resort for a spa treatment or round of golf on 4 championship courses. 
Feel like you’re stepping—or swimming—into the treetops on the villa’s private deck, which stretches toward the canopy with a negative-edge pool and hot tub. There’s also alfresco dining for 10 and an outdoor kitchen with a barbecue. Inside, you’ll find smart TVs, Wi-Fi, and a wet bar to help you unwind or entertain friends and family. 
The open-concept living areas at this luxury property are laid out around a wood staircase whose steps climb a single beam. At the front of the house is a formal dining room with a mod sideboard, geometric wallpaper and seating for 8; at the back is an open-plan sitting area, breakfast table, and a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar. 
This vacation rental has 3 bedrooms with king beds and 1 bedroom with a queen bed; all 4 have ensuite bathrooms. Like the main floor, the bedrooms feature details such as geometric patterns in the area rugs and wallpaper, colorful artwork, and their own views of the trees covering the hills outside. 
The villa is within walking distance—or a 6-minute drive—of Barton Creek Resort, where you can tee off on 4 golf courses, relax in a rooftop pool and garden after a facial in the spa, or sample the 7 restaurants. It’s 12 miles to downtown Austin, where you’ll find everything from laid-back barbecue and taco joints to honeymoon-worthy fine dining, plus a range of bars, live-music venues, and beer gardens to make each evening of your holiday one to remember.
