This circa 1900 mansion boasts some strange bragging rights: the first azalea bushes in the city, the first home in Austin to have wall-to-wall carpet, and columns carved by a master stonemason bailed from Travis County booking by the home's original owner. Imagine surprising your lover with a weekend getaway, omelets in bed, and then … dessert. You might impress your guest with your smarts about the stone columns on your way out, if you ever leave the room.
