Travis Heights house description

This charming bungalow is located in the Travis Heights neighborhood - just south of downtown and just east of the trendy South Congress (SoCo) shopping district. Built in 1949 by a local craftsman this 3 BR/2 BA 2,000 sq ft home features front work of native Texas limestone and decorative stucco on the remaining sides.

On the main floor there is a living room with a large picture window over looking the tree-lined street and a dining room that opens on to a second-story deck. There's also a furnished vintage kitchen updated to include a microwave/convection oven and a 5-burner gas range.

Close to South Congress Ave, downtown Austin and Lady Bird lake this location is perfect for visitors interested in all that Austin has to offer.

It's even a quick trip to Memorial Stadium on UT game days!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: I bought this house in January of 1998 - just as the neighborhoods around downtown Austin were experiencing a true renaissance. The home was purchased from the daughter of the original owner and I've done my best to stay true to the 1940's styling (with a few modern updates, of course). In June of 2008 I moved a bit further north but decided to keep this house. We enjoy it on open weekends and someday hope to retire here.
