Radical Real Estate - The Bouldin Castle - South Austin 78704

This property puts Austin real estate on a whole new level. A medieval-modern castle located in one of South Austin's most vibrant urban neighborhoods and cultural scenes, Bouldin Creek, this home began life in 1925 as a catholic church. In 2008, visionary home builder Urban Nature, Inc. purchased the property and began restoring, renovating, and modernizing it inch by inch. Sitting on more than a 1/3 acre corner lot in the heart of the city, the Bouldin Castle, as it is rapidly becoming known, is a magical residence, truly fit for a king...and it's for sale for $1.6M.
The original church structure now encompasses the main living area, the formal dining, and the gourmet kitchen. The flagstone floors, roof beams, and heavy stucco walls are original to the church structure. There is a 3 story addition that connects to the original church via a medieval turret. In all, the castle has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths and measures about 4270 square feet.


The castle has its own saline lap pool surrounded by a flagstone patio. The stone privacy fence, inspired by gothic architecture, is made from locally sourced aquifer rock.


This is the master bedroom which encompasses the entire 2nd floor and has its own private balcony as well as a sitting room. The wood floor is made from reclaimed oak and laid out in a 7-sided polygonal pattern.

The master bath includes this magnificent bathtub along with a marble shower, double vanity, toilet, and bidet. To the right is a generous walk-in closet.
