Luxury living away from home
Located just north of The University of Texas, our modern studio showcases how a green building can coexist with an historic landmark, the Fruth House. Custom designed for comfort and to display photography, the creative living area achieves a spacious feeling. Completed in February 2012, it incorporates “green building” concepts: LED lights, solar panels, efficient heating/AC, and tankless water heater. A queen-sized Murphy bed, queen size convertible sofa, fully-equipped kitchen, and comfy furnishings on a century-old reclaimed wood floor provide visitors with a home base to explore Austin. There is approximately 450 sq. ft. of air conditioned space plus a 70 sq. ft balcony with chairs and table. Centrally-located, guests can catch the UT shuttle (75 yards), or walk to UT (1 mile), Central Market, and nearby restaurants along the “Drag” (Guadalupe) and in Hyde Park; we are near several hospitals (Austin Heart, Seton, St. David’s, University Medical/Brackenridge, and Dell Children’s) and the Capitol. UT scholars, visitors, sports fans, athletes and live music aficionados—all are welcome to enjoy our Gallery House.
