The Kingsley House is a known entity in Austin. Built in 1926 by Judge Kingsley for his daughter, Cora, who lived here for many years, the walls of this home could tell many stories. Besides housing a prominent citizen in its early days, it was later the home of a popular local artist; it's been an antique store; and it has even been a residence for senior citizens. But now it is the sanctuary for my little family, our peaceful abode just a block from downtown.

The space
This gorgeous and freshly updated 2nd floor bedroom features a queen bed and private half bathroom. Enjoy a view out the window of the lovely backyard and watch the fireflies buzz around at night. A shared bathroom with shower is just outside the bedroom door.

Note: there is a cat that lives in the home. She doesn’t have access to the second floor of the house and is therefore never in any bedrooms. She’s a sweet, adoring cat but we are sensitive to the fact that some guests may have allergies, so she is confined to the basement, living room, and kitchen.

My name is Brie and I'm a shy adventurer. I tend to be a homebody and work hard to make my home a peaceful oasis. But then I also like to get out from time to time to meet new people and explore new places. Mornings don't start without coffee and nights don't end without meditation. I love to read, journal, letterbox, clean... I'm always busy! I like to jog and try to eat healthy but also understand the importance of balance.

During your stay

I am open to as much interaction as you like. I'm also okay with leaving you some peace and quiet if that's what you desire, too.
