Constructed in 1928 and set in the heart of Austin, Commodore Perry Estate (@thecommodoreperryestate) was an original country home for Commodore Edgar and Lutie Perry, an illustrious southern couple. Legendary Creative Director, Ken Fulk, revitalized the space with quintessential Texan influences in mind — including his personal visits to the state’s antique roadshows — which is clearly exhibited in heirloom vintage splendors throughout the property.
The Mansion, the center of the property, is designed to make it as if guests are visiting the home of an old friend. The five bedrooms from the Perry’s original residence have been transformed into uniquely charming hotel suites as a nod to its original inhabitants. Guestrooms such as the Edgar Perry’s Suite, with its safari-inspired play of patterns, reflects a love of world travel and high culture, while Lutie Perry’s Suite presents a softer side in a palette of pink velvet, faux fur, and muted leopard carpet.
Adjacent to the Mansion is the Inn, a newly built three-story hotel with 42 new guest rooms and seven terrace suites housed in a beautiful courtyard-style hotel structure shaded by Post Oak trees.
Decorated with delicate ivy in an intimate garden setting, on-site restaurant, Lutie’s, hosts a sophisticated yet classic country club-style aesthetic that includes a patio and all indoor and outdoor seating arranged to take in views of manicured English topiary and fountains.
