The lowdown: Imagine being only six miles from downtown but still able to own up to five horses. This duplex-like home combines country with chic, sitting on more than an acre of serene, tree-studded land but also close enough to all of South Austin's action. It offers not just the main residences but also a 864-square-foot gueshouse. An expansive back deck joins the home's two sides, the larger of which has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus stained conrete floors, a gas fireplace, vaulted ceilings, and an updated kitchen with granite countertops. The smaller side is equipped with two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen — ideal for a home office or live-in suite. The guest house includes a two-car garage and upscale workshop, plus a large metal shed and two more carport spaces. If you've always dreamed of having the space for hobbies, a car collection, home music studio, or horses, this one-of-a-kind property provides it.
