Property description

We own 3 'Fabulous' big houses all on the same street and they are all one block from downtown! If this house is booked, check out the other two big vacation rentals that are next door to each other! Go to the VRBO website and enter property#459278 and find the 3000 square foot home and also check out the property next door #371165!

Are you planning to eat at Franklins Bar B Que?
It's a skip and a hop from all 3 houses! Maybe you are in charge of finding a place for a girls or guys reunion, a bachelorette or bachelor gathering, wedding, or just vacationing together? This house is beautiful, clean, spacious, and best of all located '1' minute from downtown and 1 minute to the Famous 6th Street, 1.5 miles from the UT Football Stadium and 1 mile from the convention center, 10 minutes from the airport, 3 miles to Zilker Park.

ABOUT THIS HISTORIC BEAUTIFUL HOUSE:

You've heard of LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!...LUXURY! LUXURY! LUXURY!...correct?

Well, this house on 9th Street defines it al! Step into this house and walk on walnut antique floors, high ceilings, and most of the furniture is from Neiman Marcus.

The house was built in 1910! This is why it is located in the heart of Austin, Texas. We did a full remodel, but you still have the charm of Austin! The neighborhood is recognized as 'Banker's Row' or 'The French Legation Museum' area. The French Legation Museum is right across the street!

In the early 1900's all the banks were located in Downtown Austin. In fact, just walk across the street and walk to visit our neighbor, and tour the 'Oldest House in Austin!' Built 171 years ago, it sits inside the French Legation Museum grounds. This is how historic this neighborhood is. The bankers lived in this neighborhood and would walk, or ride a horse and carriage to work.

The Vacation Rental House is 2600-2700 sq. ft.! The house has an open floor plan, which is great for entertaining! The living room, dining room, breakfast room and kitchen are all open to one another and make a great place to enjoy friends and family for all sorts of celebrations! The house has a total of 4 bathrooms (3 full and one 1/2 bath). On the first floor, there is a large family room, dining room, kitchen, tea room and breakfast bar! We also have 2 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. We have a gorgeous front porch that is perfect for cocktails! On the side of the house there are tables and chairs and gas grill!

As you head upstairs to the 2nd floor, you will find that the stairs are also made of antique walnut wood with a wrought iron rail. Upstairs you will find the master bedroom with 2 queen beds, a bedroom with 2 twin beds that share a full bath including a spa tub/shower and a sunroom that has been converted into a room that shares 2 full beds! From this room you are able to view the gorgeous Austin Skyline! You can see the Capital, Frost Bank Tower, and many of the other Austin landmarks including the amazing sunset!

This is a very unique house!! Remember, it was built in 1910, but a complete remodel and upstair addition in 2006! Yes, it has 2 big central air-condition units because it does get hot in Texas!

Imagine a vacation where you do not have to drive anywhere the entire time you are here. So much is within walking distance or if you choose to ride a $5.00 cab will get you downtown or UBER. 95% of our guests do not rent a car!

Keep in mind that this house is on E. 9th Street! Walk to to the night life right on E. 6th Street, Rainy Street, Congress District, 2nd Street District, West 6th District and so many more areas! Check out 'The Eastside District' and you must find time to grab a beer and listen to every type of music that has ever been written! Rainey Street is just an 8 minute walk from your vacation rental! Google it! Wells Fargo is 2 blocks, CVS pharmacy is 2 blocks, Gualdalupe Catholic Church is 2 blocks, Blue Dahlia Resturant is 3 blocks, Angie's Mexican Food is on E. 7th, Sagra (Italina food) is on E. 11th, Franklin Bar B Q is 21/2 blocks, liquor store is 2 blocks on E. 11th, Mijos Mexican restaurant is on E. 11th, walk two blocks from the house and you will be on E. 11th.

Come stay at one of the most fun and fabulous places downtown! Make the most of your trip by spending all the time with your friends! When you book, I will send you a list of things to do in Austin including restaurant, bar and activity suggestions! I can't wait to help you start planning your trip to the Best City in Texas!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: My name is Amber Barnett, I am the property manager of all three of the Artale's vacation rentals. I was born and raised in Austin, so I have watched our city grow tremendously over the years. I lived in New York City for 4 years and that was an amazing experience, but there is something special about Austin's laid back lifestyle that brought me home. I love this city and look forward to assisting you with your vacation. Please let me know if you need any suggestions on restaurants, bars, activities, shopping and more!

Why Downtown:
Our 3 vacation homes are located in the heart of Austin. Keep in mind these are big houses and NOT A CONDO! It is rare that you will find big vacation rental houses this close to downtown. This house has a special place in my heart because my bachelorette party was here and I stayed here on my wedding weekend! The area is known for its eclectic patio bars, authentic taco stands, music, food and abundance of bicycles, East Austin is a hip hodgepodge of culture. This vibrant community is home to many types of people from artists and musicians to business owners.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house was originally built in 1910, and was the home to the First African American Lawyer in Austin! It is located across from the French Legation Museum, which is where the French settled when arriving in Austin. The view from the second floor is to die for! You can see the whole Austin skyline night or day! The walk to downtown is just minutes away, or head over to East 6th Street and enjoy the eclectic bars and food trailers!
