This 118-year-old historic residence was once the private home of Gov. Joseph and Orline Walter Sayers – now known as the Sayers House. As envisioned by Page Brothers Architects, this architectural masterpiece is a testament to a bygone era: original fireplaces, windows, flooring and woodwork preserve the touch of Orline Walter Sayers, noted hostess of Austin, while discreet updates offer modern convenience. Beyond its historical allure, this property’s mixed-use zoning opens a world of potential uses. The 6,872-square-foot property is currently converted into separate apartments. The first floor is wheelchair accessible with two full bathrooms, ensuring ADA compliance if public use is desired. In the attic apartment, a unique piece of history awaits, with a fireplace designed in Masonic iconography—a legacy of Gov. Joseph Sayers’ association with the Masons.
Imagine the many possible uses of this historic and flexible space, from boutique art gallery to an intimate bed-and-breakfast, or even a unique event space that combines historical charm with modern convenience in Downtown Austin. Nearby amenities include the Texas Capitol, Travis County Court House, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Lady Bird Lake Trails, and the vibrant W 6th entertainment district. Come visit this exceptional residence where history, updates and unique features converge, and where mixed-use zoning offers opportunities for your vision to flourish.
