With over a century of Austin’s history captured in its walls, this one-of-a-kind building is not just a home but a destination in itself. Originally built in 1890 as a firehouse, T.C. “Buck” Steiner converted it into the famous Capitol Saddlery in the 1940s where legendary boot maker, Charles Dunn, took up shop, fashioning cowboy boots for the likes of Arnold Palmer and Al Capone. Transformed in 2008 from a saddlery to the stunning event space and residence Palazzo Lavaca, this home unites rustic charm with Old World splendor. Immaculately curated with 18th century antiques, Italian chandeliers, and Fortuny Paper wallpaper and velvets, the beautiful interiors beg to be savored. A spectacular gold leafed ballroom transports its occupants into an otherworldly fantasy, while the beautiful open-air courtyard showcases the remaining artifacts of the saddlery’s operations. Uniquely situated to function as a desirable venue, or as a luxury three bedroom with exquisite open living spaces and media areas, Palazzo Lavaca will enchant you and make you feel as if you are living in a work of art.
