Hyde Park house description

Relax or enjoy Austin's sights from this unique setting: a beautifully restored Craftsman- style house built in 1911 and registered as an Austin Historical Landmark. It sits on a beautifully landscaped one-half acre lot in the quiet Hyde Park area of the city just north of the University of Texas campus. Completely renovated, yet conserving the graceful ambience of the original home, Harris Park Guest House is furnished with an eclectic mix of antiques and mid-twentieth century modern furniture. The fully equipped kitchen and formal dining room are ideal for cooking, dining, even entertaining.

Located at the corner of Harris Park Avenue and 32nd Street, just 1/2 mile west of Interstate 35, it is easy to reach and serves as a great base for exploring Austin's many attractions: 1.5 miles from the State Capitol, 1.2 miles from the Elizabet Ney Museum, 5 miles from Barton Springs, 2 miles from Sixth Street, 1.5 miles from the Blanton Museum. A host of wonderful restaurants are within walking distance or an easy drive. Not into sightseeing? If you want relaxation, then this is your place! The house offers lots of comfortable, cozy nooks to curl up with a good book, to watch TV, or to listen to the stereo. Three paved patios offer great outdoor spots for sitting, relaxing, reading, or watching passersby. On football weekends, walk to the stadium in minutes (3/4 mile away), or sit on the front porch and watch an endless stream of people in burnt orange walk by.

Do your kids live in Austin? This is the perfect spot! Visit as long as you like, but have a place all your own, and still big enough to have the whole family over for dinner. The perfect nest for 'snowbirds' during winter! Whatever brings you to Austin, Harris Park Guest House offers a great alternative to hotel accommodations at very reasonable rates!

                We stayed for a long weekend at the Harris Park house while we were in Austin to run the marathon. We were 2 adult couples and we found this house to be plenty spacious (we each had our own bathroom), but also cozy and homey. The location is quiet, but easy to get around Austin from. We enjoyed the proximity to the restaurants and businesses in the Hyde Park neighborhood as well. Jay and Ann were very accommodating and helpful. We would definitely stay there again if we return to Austin!

                My family has stayed at this home for the last three years while attending a swim meet at UT. The house is located very close to the campus, with easy access to lots of Austin attractions. The owners were very friendly and accessible during our stays. Thanks again!

                A great house! It was exactly as represented in the photos and description. My group of old friends, who had lots of serious"catching up" to do, loved moving our conversation areas from the living room to the dining room to the patio to the kitchen/TV room. One night we enjoyed dinner at Asti's, an excellent, nearby restaurant. We look forward to returning to this Hyde Park home in the future.

                This historic home and its lovely 1/2 acre of sitting/dining areas and gardens is real find! Easy access to any part of the city, yet in a very pedestrian friendly part of town with many choices nearby for food, drink, groceries, strolling lovely residential streets, or being on campus. The pictures do not do justice to its size or beauty. Jay is easy to work with and he and Ann clearly take pride in preserving and decorating their home and then offering it at such a reasonable price. The house was spotless and kitchen was perfectly equipped for all our needs. A real gem that I would recommend without hesitation to anyone needing a spacious and comfortable retreat.

                My family and I made a recent visit to Austin to see our daughter. We stayed in this home and were so pleased. We had small children with us and it was very accomodating. I would recommend this home to anyone who will be visiting Austin in the near future. We will certainly be returning and hope this property is available again.

                This was a beautiful, well kept and furnished heritage home. Great large yard and patio. excellent location and neighborhood, near university and good walk or run to downtown. Family stay was ideal with lots of room for different people to do their thing or all meet together. well equipped kitchen. Easy parking. Safe. Owner was very helpful in getting problem fixed as fast as possible in middle of Christmas holidays Would highly recommend this for vacation or longer stay.

                My family stayed here for several nights in May, with our newborn baby. Allison and Jay were very kind in answering our questions in advance and were quick to do so. The house itself was spacious and beautiful, not to mention comfortable. Even though it was hot outside, we enjoyed a lot of time in the gardens admiring the live oaks. We loved this place and will be happy to come back again soon. Thanks to Allison and Jay for making this such a great experience for our family!

                Lovely home, well maintained, great location, nice grounds. Owners were extremely responsive and helpful. Only downsides were small bathrooms and not a ton of stuff in walking distance. Overall, a great house, a fantastic experience and definitely worth the money.

                We just returned from a magical trip to Austin. This craftsman jewel has been elegantly restored and well loved. From the well detailed and nicely appointed interior to the fabulous garden and outdoor living spaces; we so enjoyed the house's charm and old soul. It made for a backdrop of a wonderful stay and the perfect home away from home! We'd highly recommend the property; it was delightful and the owners were gracious and welcoming.

                We were able to rent this home due to the recommendation of some friends who had stayed her previously and it really was everything they had said it would be and more! We loved the quaint neighborhood, the landscaping that made you feel secluded, the proximity to the college where my daughter was swimming in a meet, and the space we enjoyed while experiencing Austin. The home was VERY clean, BEAUTIFUL, and we enjoyed patio time even in the hot Texas weather! We grilled out one evening using their grill with ease, and my kids really enjoyed the LEGOS! Thanks to the Allisons for such a wonderful experience. If you are looking to be close to everything but want to be "away" from it all, this is the place for you!

              About the owner: Ann & Jay in Lee's Ferry, Utah

              Why the Owner Chose Hyde Park:
              Austin is like no other place on earth! It has everything: culture, arts, scenery, sports, good climate (well, pretty good in summer, great in winter!), restaurants, and fun places to walk. Harris Park Guest House is right in the middle of it all; just minutes from UT, downtown, the Blanton Gallery, Town Lake, and Lake Austin. Great parks, shopping and eating all within an easy walk.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We fell in love with this house the first time we saw it. Built in 1911, an Austin historic landmark home, it has been completely renovated, and offers modern comfort and convenience in a turn of the century setting. The half-acre grounds have three stone patios with seating for relaxation and outside dining. The kitchen and dining room offer ideal facilities for entertaining and meal preparation. The neighborhood is fantastic for walking. All in all, Harris Park Guest House is perfect as a base from which to explore Austin, or just as a place to hang out and relax!
