Laguna Gloria: An Italian-Style Paradise


An Italian Villa in the heart of Texas, Laguna Gloria is a unique gem nestled in 12 acres of lush foliage on Lake Austin.

LAGUNA_GLORIA_GARDEN Laguna Gloria was built in 1916 by Texas legend Clara Driscoll and her husband, Hal Sevier, to resemble the villas of Lake Como, Italy where the couple honeymooned. Clara and Hal frequently enjoyed hosting large soirees in the lakeside villa and on the expansive grounds. The front of the villa faces the lake to welcome guests who arrived by boat, which was the most common form of transportation in the region at that time. In 1943, Clara donated Laguna Gloria to the Austin community as a place to enjoy and appreciate art.

Today, Laguna Gloria is a beautiful sanctuary for artists and art enthusiasts. Whether strolling through the Four Season’s Garden or touring the Italian Villa, Laguna Gloria is the perfect setting to cultivate creativity for your own artistic concepts. For 50 years Laguna Gloria has inspired budding artists at The Contemporary Austin Art School, located on the 12-acre estate. The art school uses the natural setting to nurture creativity and “enhance visual awareness.” The Contemporary Austin: Laguna Gloria, invites you to enjoy a day at the historic villa.
