Adjacent to the Austin Country Club when it was built in 1929, this Tudor Revival house was home to two prominent Austin leaders, longtime Mayor Tom Miller, then Emma Long, Austin’s first City Councilwoman. Although the country club is gone, the unique architecture of the house and its hilltop location sustain its presence as an icon of Austin history. Coming soon to the south will be the small boutique Commodore Perry Hotel, an exquisite addition to the restoration and redevelopment of the Commodore Perry Estate. An 8’ stone wall will be erected between the two properties and extend along Red River to Park Blvd. The house has stood vacant since 1974 and needs a lot of work, but retains its original character. The price includes the house at 811 Park Blvd, which is to be removed, creating a 23,000 sf lot. $1,500,000
