Realtor.com shares, "just minutes from downtown Austin, TX, sits a beautiful oasis of 3 lush acres. It’s anchored by a 3,272-square-foot home.

The serene, parklike property is available for $9.5 million.

“As soon as you go through the gates, city life is gone. It truly feels like a respite from the city. All you hear when you’re there are birds tweeting and the two owls that live in the trees hooting. You’re truly surrounded by nature. You’re in the wilderness,” says listing agent Wendi Slaton Anderson, with Compass.

“The house is lovely, but it is the land and the lot around it that is exceptional,” adds Slaton Anderson.

‘Very livable’

“The home is really well-maintained, and they’ve done such a great job of bringing the outdoors in. It is very livable,” Slaton Anderson says.

The residence was built in 1966 and recently remodeled. There are five bedrooms and four bathrooms.

“The home site could support a 10,000-square-foot estate if that’s what somebody envisions. If somebody has a different vision for the property, there’s a lot of potential,” says Slaton Anderson.

Nature preserves surround the property, she adds. “The privacy essentially is unparalleled. I had never seen anything like it within the city limits just 10 to 15 minutes from downtown. It’s pretty spectacular.”

A creek runs through the property, creating waterfalls when the water is high enough.

The sellers told Slaton Anderson they named the property El Rincon del Riachuelo after its most striking feature, the corner of the creek.

Only two families have owned the place, with each living on the property for more than 30 years.

The current owners, who purchased the place in 1992, have maintained the trails and created seating areas, bridges, and relaxing spaces with fire pits and hammocks around the property.

“There’s so much peace and positive energy as soon as you get through the gates,” Slaton Anderson says. “It just feels tranquil. My schedule is intense, but when I get there, everything just goes away.”"
