The Estate

The Commodore Perry Estate’s secluded grounds encompass nearly 10 acres on Waller Creek in the Hancock neighborhood of central Austin, and are home to the Commodore Perry Mansion, six other structures and a non-denominational chapel. The Estate was entered on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001 as a historic district, confirming its status as one of the city’s most significant architectural landmarks.

The Commodore Perry Mansion, set in this lush urban oasis, has the feel of an Italian country villa, despite its location in the center of a city of nearly 800,000 people. With rooms ranging from the grand central hall and loggia to the cut limestone sunroom and cozy walnut-paneled library, the 10,800-square-foot home, designed in the Mediterranean Revival style, includes a Ludowici clay tile roof, carved limestone fireplaces, and hand-crafted plaster and ironwork that recall an earlier, more gracious time and place.
