Rosedale house description

This 1940 bungalow has been transformed and now features the finest modern upgrades including beautiful new oak hardwood floors, top of the line granite counters, and Brazilian glass mosaic tile. The house is pre-wired for sound in living, kitchen and porch with the latest electronics, including a Denon receiver, CD/DVD player and 42' Panasonic Plasma TV.

The gourmet kitchen includes stainless appliances, large island with under-counter microwave, and 5-burner gas range. Beds offer hotel quality linens and each bedroom has a private bath, large closets & fans.
The home is located in central Austin, convenient to The University of Texas and medical centers. Drive time to downtown / Warehouse District is 10 minutes and 15 minutes to South Congress area. Rosedale is a coveted neighborhood with local bistros and restaurants, bakeries and delis, antique and resale shops. Minutes from the house is the original Central Market with cooking classes and extensive produce and wine selections. Within walking distance is Upper Crust Bakery, the Omelettry, Blue Star Cafe.
The first floor has a living area with 42-inch high definition, flat screen TV, ample seating, and modern rug that opens to the kitchen and separate dining area. Double French doors lead onto a screen porch overlooking the back yard. The tastefully landscaped back yard has a huge Texas pecan tree that shades the seating area and bar-b-q grill. There is a private bedroom suite downstairs that includes a private bath with a tub/shower combo.
The second floor has two private bedrooms and baths. The guest bedroom has a bed, a computer desk, ceiling fan, large closet and private bath. The master suite has an impressive walk-in closet with built-ins, king bed, sitting area with TV and fabulous private bath.
My bear family and I stayed in this central Austin home for a long weekend. We really enjoyed this tastefully decorated home with artwork and mementos from London. The house has been newly refurbished with every attention to detail - from the clever lighting to the designer touches throughout. The stylish, well-equipped kitchen allowed us to whip up breakfast in the mornings and the grill outside made dinner a pleasure as we could sit and put our paws up in the quiet neighborhood.
We were minutes away from the Central Market shopping center which made it easy to stock up our fridge and downtown Austin was only a short drive away. The house had a comprehensive guide of all the sights to see, which was very helpful. We, however, decided to enjoy the comforts of this home. The cubs enjoyed the garden and the porch out back, whilst we relaxed in the shower/steam room in the ultra-modern bathroom.
A beary comfortable stay together with the warm welcome we received from our hosts Cindy and Aram, made it a true home away from home experience.
