Auberge Resorts Collection has recently opened its first urban estate, a 10-acre property in Austin, Texas in the United States. Commodore Perry Estate, Auberge Resorts Collection is a glamorous social hub and historic former residence, originally built at the height of the Jazz Age in 1928.
The property has been meticulously restored and enhanced with a modern take on its stately design. The result is a spectacular new destination hotel and private club, a Mansion and an Inn.
The centrepiece of Commodore Perry Estate is the original 10,800-square-foot Mansion, which embodies an elevated, residential-style atmosphere. Within the Mansion, all five bedrooms of the Perry family’s original residence have been transformed into charmingly distinctive hotel suites that pay homage to the Mansion’s original inhabitants.
Signature Suites include Mr. Perry’s Suite, which reflects Mr. Perry’s love of world travel and high culture with a safari-inspired play of patterns; Mrs. Perry’s Suite with its softer palette of pink, velvet, faux fur and muted leopard; LaVerne’s Suite, honouring the woman who purchased the Estate in 1974 and preserved it for Austin; Edgar Perry, Jr.’s Suite and Hal Thomson’s Suite. When combined, Mr. and Mrs. Perry’s Suites form the largest and most exclusive accommodation on the Estate, with his and hers master suites, along with a spacious living room and dining table for eight.
The new three-storey Inn comprises 42 guest rooms and seven terrace suites. Located adjacent to the Mansion, the Inn features an elegant colonnade perfectly suited to the history of the estate. The lower level of the Inn offers one- and two-bedroom suites designed for entertaining, each suite highlights the elegance of a historic country estate with unique features, including a private garden and oversized terrace for taking in stunning views of the Estate’s formal landscaping.
Inspired by European elegance and Gatsby-era bon vivant vibes, Commodore Perry Estate is a fantastical place where guests can sit back and relax or experience the Estate’s endless and vibrant programming.
On site is a 50-foot oval swimming pool, a fitness centre, and an organic kitchen garden. When ready to get out and explore Austin, guests can hop on vintage-inspired bicycles or in complimentary house cars.
The diverse menu of guest experiences at Commodore Perry Estate features memorable activities for guests of all ages. From enjoying a signature ice-cream cone from Lutie’s Ice Cream Bike to sipping soulful Texas whiskey on the lawn overlooking original fountains.
