Property description

Our 1930's home in Travis Heights has been beautifully remodeled, and is just about perfect. The kitchen is awesome, the bedrooms and bathrooms are wonderful. The living room has a wide screen LCD TV, 1080p HDTV with DVD, cable, and highest speed wireless available.

The large, fenced back yard has huge shade trees and a crushed granite patio. The front yard has plenty of off street parking under a massive, 200 year old Oak tree.

The home is both cozy and contemporary with lots of colorful art. It is close to everything wonderful in Austin.

You can walk to SoCo, the hippest, most laid back and friendliest part of Austin. There you can listen to live music [Mick Jagger reputedly hangs out at the Continental Club when in Austin], eat in great restaurants, shop, treasure hunt, hang and people watch, This being Austin, (one of the top cities to visit without a car) there is a neighborhood bus stop right around the corner (.06 miles). $1 takes you down town to the capitol and 6th street.

Stacy Park and the wooded walking/biking trail, tennis courts and all year pool is just a stroll down the hill.

There is also a wonderful shaded playground with a shallow pool for small children.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We live in Travis Heights, just minutes away. We both love to indulge our creative side, so Travis Heights in Soco is the perfect place for us. We hope to see you in Austin soon!

Why the Owner Chose Travis Heights:
Travis Heights represents everything that is wonderful about Austin.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Travis Heights is a quiet neighborhood in Soco, with all its fun and charm. Woodland (which becomes Annie) actually intersects South Congress right where the fun begins! You will be minutes to lake and trail, to Zilker Park, to tons of live music venues, to Barton Springs, UT, St. Eds, the Convention Center, the airport, the Capitol, or 6th Street. The neighborhood is very walkable, quiet and laid back. The bus stop around the corner takes you to down town, 6th Street and the Capitol for $1. In Austin, we love dogs, and the Austin dog park is just a short walk away. Walk a bit further and you arrive at a truly world class park. At Auditorium Shores, located on the banks of Lake Austin, your dog will have acres to romp off-leash, and can even go for a swim. There are dozens of local eateries within easy walking distance, including world famous Guerro's, Congress Avenue Cafe, and Joe's CrabShack on the lake. There's a great view of downtown ... great for a drink and watching the UT rowing team. GROCERIES Farmer's Market is a small, quality grocery store [owned by a neighbor] at the corner of Woodland and Congress. Most of what they sell is raised or grown nearby. There is an HEB at the corner of Congress and Oltorf. It is an OLD one - my husband went there with his grandparents in the 50's! The building is an antique, but the food is fresh and wholesome. And for a truly artistic experience, visit Whole Foods' flagship store on South Lamar and 6th street. It's simply amazing.
