Welcome to 125 Upper Elgin River Road, a stunning property that has operated as a thriving Airbnb and wedding venue, comfortably accommodating up to 32 guests. Built in 1900, this estate showcases turn-of-the-century Victorian elegance, while featuring a heated pool, hot tub, pickleball court, arcade and putting green on three lush acres just south of downtown Elgin.

The home boasts original woodwork, four working fireplaces, a grand porte-cochère, and enchanting magnolia trees. The main house offers three living spaces and a formal dining room, with additional living space in the guest house. Three bedrooms in the main house feature en suite bathrooms, with two opening to the second-story wrap-around porch. The southwest-facing turret spans three stories, providing cozy reading nooks and views of downtown Austin and the Domain. The expansive unfinished attic presents an opportunity to create a primary suite, office, or additional living space with vaulted ceilings. Beyond the 5,000+ square feet of living space, this estate is an entertainer’s paradise. Its location offers a serene escape with direct access to downtown Elgin, just 0.7 miles from HEB, and proximity to Manor, Bastrop, Taylor, and Austin.
