Homes with Guest Houses For Sale
Guest homes and separate guest quarters provide homeowners a range of options and the flexibility to maximize their homesteads for their particular needs. While many homes offer a guest room, it is less common to have this room or these quarters separate from the main house. Thankfully, the Austin area does offer a selection of homes and estates with guest quarters, and often these are within the luxury home segment. We’ve included the available homes below.
Why Consider a Guest House or Separate Guest Accommodations?
Parents or In-laws: Whether your parents or in-laws are transitioning to living with you permanently or whether they simply like to stay for extended visits, guest quarters provide them privacy and a sense of independence, while still maintaining their proximity to the main home.
Older kids/kids in college: Perhaps your college student prefers a more private space than a dorm room or sharing an apartment with roommates. Or, perhaps you prefer letting an older teen try semi-independence first! What about post-college kids trying to make it in the “real world?” Sometimes coming home is a good thing for both kids and parents, and separate but close guest quarters can be a great way to fulfill the needs of both the parents and the child.
Live-in Nanny, Housekeeper, Groundskeeper, or Assistant: You might like the simple perk of having help nearby, or you might be able to benefit financially from providing a residence as part of the compensation package. Either way, having assistance on-hand when needed is extremely valuable.
Separate office: Do you have a career where a home office is a necessity, but you would rather have an entirely separate space, whether for clients or for your own privacy? Many guest quarters can be converted easily into offices and will have the kitchen and restroom features that make the space self-sufficient.
Extended Visits: Family and friends like to come and stay awhile over the holidays? What about those long, summer visits? Guest quarters are an ideal solution for both your guests and yourself.
Entourage: Perhaps wherever you go, so goes your entourage. Maintain your privacy by offering them an area of their own – so that you can be the genius or creative or business superstar you are.
