Travis Heights house description
Quaint 2 BR/ 1 BA 1930s house in the historic Travis Heights neighborhood off of South Congress offers a remodeled subway-tiled bathroom and a fantastic kitchen with all the amenities. 15 minutes from Austin Bergstrom International Airport, 5 minutes from downtown, 10 minutes from UT.
Enjoy the evening and watch the sun go down from our classic porch swing. Kick of your shoes or grill up some burgers in the spacious backyard.
Upscale local restaurants, cafes, taco bars, bakeries, and neighborhood groceries are all just a few blocks away. Great people watching and all your caffeine needs are met at Jo's Coffee. Continental Club, one of Texas' most revered venues, features live music nightly. Check out the First Thursday festival each month for local artists and handmade crafts, live music, and a glimpse of Austin culture.
Take a leisurely 1.5 mile walk downtown, across the Congress Ave bridge to see the bats emerge in the evening. A short cab or bus ride will take you to the Warehouse District and upscale clubs and wine bars. Or head to 6th Street for a night of barhopping.
Active travelers will enjoy Lady Bird Lake with miles of trail for running or biking. No trip to Austin is complete without a visit to the historic pools at Barton Springs and Deep Eddy.

This cottage has a great 40's bungalow feel on the inside. It's pretty small but both bedrooms are a nice size and beds are comfortable. Living area/kitchen is open which makes if feel a bit more roomy than it is. Back yard is very large and fenced in but not well kept. The grass was so high we really couldn't enjoy it. If this place were well maintained, I would probably give it 4 or 5 stars but... the interior wasn't very clean (especially the bathroom which is kinda hard to get past), the garbage cans outside were full so there wasn't room for us to take out the trash, and as previously mentioned both front and back yards were very overgrown. Inquire about the level of housekeeping first. If good, it's a nice space in a great neighborhood that is easy walking distance to So. Congress shops & restaurants. Also, Stacy Park with pool and tennis courts is two blocks away.
