Gothic Victorian Mini Manse
US / Texas
Havenwald is our 6 acre ranchette, with 7 magical, fairytaleesque cottages, each with a distinct personality. Dripping Springs is the town that borders Austin to the west. We're a quaint but prosperous town, known as the "Gateway to the Hill Country." Our cottages are built almost entirely from reclaimed and salvaged materials, and are furnished with antiques and cedar wood. Our cottages are: The Gothic Victorian, Robin Hood's Hideout, Ruby Cleo, the Little Gypsy Wagon, Anastasia, The Steampunk House, The Havenwald Castle and Sugarplum. The Gothic Victorian is just that, with a Mansard roof, lots of stained glass windows, painted walls, rich reds, greys and blacks, a full-size claw-foot tub, large kitchen and antique brass hardware.
Robin Hood's Hideout is our Storybook cottage, with rustic, Medieval overtones. A rough-hewn ceiling of cedar logs, stained glass windows, curved trim (think the Hugh Comstock houses on Carmel Island!) and small cedar trees framing the circular stairway! This cottage has a mini-kitchen and full bath.
Ruby Cleo the Little Gypsy Wagon is teeny, with brightly painted, hand carved trim over deep red cedar siding. Antique stained glass windows, antique embossed tin ceiling and a removable bed are just some of her festive charms! No kitchen or bath, but she is the only cottage on wheels, and can be easily repositioned or moved to another location.
Anastasia is a tiny cottage with a loft, a weensy shower and kitchenette and a custom tile entry. Antique shiplap and cedar clad her interior and exterior, and her trim is in purples and teal.
The Steampunk House is a larger cottage, with industrial, reclaimed metal and wood, and a custom elevator to get to the loft! You'll find lots of gauges, gadgets and metal finishes inside, as well as a full kitchen with granite counters on vintage, carved wood buffets, and a full bath.
The Castle is under construction, scheduled to be completed Autumn, 2019. It will be in the Tudor style, with full, crenelated parapets, a jettied loft, lots of stained glass, and Medieval, sumptuous details! Also a full kitchen and bath, with an incredible view of the back 5 acres and the bluff that borders the property.
Sugarplum is a teensy, almost playhouse, with a loft and an antique buffet kitchenette and settee. She is scheduled to be completed Autumn, 2019.
Havenwald boasts cedar and Texas Live Oak trees, a descent to the wet-weather creek with a 50' metal bridge, and a forested area completely hidden from the neighbors. All you can see in the creek area is the big, Texas sky, rocks, trees and wildlife. A climb up the back bluff affords 300 degree views out over the treetops, and incredible stargazing at night! The topography and buildings at Havenwald make it a property unlike any other! Each house can be rented individually, or the entire property as a whole.
