Bouldin Castle Residence

Bouldin Castle was originally Austin’s San Jose Catholic Church and since its inception the castle has had many residents. In 2008, its new owners decided to preserve its 1925 charm and structure while renovating the landmark into a breathtaking residence.

European and old world design along with medieval gothic influences where incorporated in the original southwest mission style architecture. The residence is two floors with a basement, has three bathrooms and four and a half baths, one living area, one indoor dining area, two outdoor dining areas, a large open courtyard and a saline lap pool.

The original 1,500 sf sanctuary with its flagstone floors, overhead roof beams and floor to ceiling windows became the main living area, also known as the great hall. The church’s confessional was renovated into a powder room with Italian marble floors and the kitchen and dining area both received renovations that included state of the art appliances.

The two guest suites, located on the first floor, a master suite and a basement can be found in an addition beyond the great hall. The second floor is fully encompassed by the master suite, which includes a walk-in closet and private shower room.

Location: Austin, Texas
