Nick Churton of Mayfair International Realty visits a home in Austin, Texas perfect for a musician, artist, entertainer and parent.
High in the hills to the west of Austin, Texas is a retreat of peace, silence and serenity. It is the sort of home which is perfect for someone with a busy schedule and a very loud day or night job.
Over the past few years this property has been a perfect haven for Martie Maguire of the country rock band, the Dixie Chicks. It has been a retreat from hectic tours and sell-out concerts. Without doubt Listener’s Hill revives and nurtures.
The hill top property comprises main house with 4 bedrooms, 3 separate guesthouses and a studio complex. The latter is fabulous – a two story building with state-of-the-art recording studio (all equipment included in the sale), dance studio, rehearsal space, chill out area, kitchen and enough closets to house the largest stage wardrobe of the most clothes-conscious rock chick. There is even a long gallery for a serious art collection.
When you need to let off steam a running track follows the boundary of this seven-acre property. A pool, 5 stall stables and menage complete a home which offers security, seclusion and sanity. In the land of Dixie this is very country chic – like the Chicks!
