The Austin City Limits Music Festival just announced their line up and it’s going to be good! So we thought it only fitting to dedicate this week’s Splurge vs. Steal to homes near Zilker Park.
New to the fest? No problem! The Austin City Limits Music Festival is an annual music festival held in Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. It takes place on two consecutive, three-day weekends, and is inspired by the KLRU/PBS music series of the same name. The festival is produced by Austin-based company C3 Presents, which also produces Lollapalooza. In a nut shell, it’s one of the most epic outdoor music fests in Texas. And this year they have Guns N’ Roses, Childish Gambino, The Cure, and Cardi B, y’all!
Living near the park is a great idea, regardless of the show. Homes near Zilker Park run the gamut too, from swanky condos to eclectic moderns to updated farmhouses. And we found two that put you right near the action. All you have to do is snag tickets and stroll into Zilker park like you own the joint. Plus, the income potential could be massive for those who want to lease their home during the festival. Just check out the rates on some nearby properties on Airbnb!
Splurge: Geometric Modern With A Pool For $1.995M
A short 20 minute walk from this modern beauty puts you front and center at the entrance to Zilker Park. We think it’s just the right location, not too close, not too far. The house itself is a gem, offering four-bedrooms, three-full-and-one-half-bathrooms, and a spacious 2,944 square feet. The stunning exterior represents geometric modern design at its finest, but the interiors? They are to die for!
Clean lines, walnut flooring, 10-foot ceilings, and western windows and sliders streaming an abundance of natural light – this is how to live! And the layout is great for entertaining too. Enjoy a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with SubZero-Wolf appliances and a master suite that will have you dreaming of signing on the dotted line. Its spa-like bath is a thing of beauty, complete with custom cabinetry, a free-standing tub, and massive glass shower.
The only thing to make this modern even better would be a sparkling pool, patio, and terrace – which it has! Call the squad and fire up the built-in grill. This one is ready for summer!

Steal: Remodeled Cottage With A Deck For $650K
Not far from our splurge, sits this two-bedroom, two-full-bathroom cutie with a 936-square-foot layout. It has upgrades galore and is a great move-in ready option, just minutes from Zilker Park!
The home is positioned on a gracious lot and comes complete with an expansive deck for entertaining. We love the gorgeous hardwoods and built-ins throughout. Plus there is a fabulous kitchen with stainless appliances and center island and ample windows that bring the outdoors in. Every detail from the stone counter selection to the floors, light fixtures, and paint have been thoughtfully designed for a modern-day buyer. And with an asking price way below our splurge, you can enjoy a prime Austin location without the hefty price tag.
