                  About the owner: I was born and raised in Austin, TX, and graduated from UT, family person and I have 2 companies www.mosaicweightedblankets.com and I have a staffing firm. I know Austin like the back of my hand and can recommend great things for you to do. Austin is a very special place!

                  Why the Owner Chose Zilker:
                  We purchased this property to invest in Austin. My big brother owns the Barton Springs Saloon at S Lamar and Barton Springs Road and I decided to buy something close to downtown, so when my boys grow up, they can live there while they attend college. It has turned into a nice little getaway for the downtown area.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Great little property with nice outside patio and we have an oak tree in the front yard that is 100 years old! 3 great bedrooms with combo living and kitchen with nice sitting area will meet ll your needs while you are here. Close to Austin nightlife,, SOCO, SOLA, The Convention Center, Zilker Park and Barton Springs,food trailers, close drive to F1 and situated in an older neighborhood that gives you an idea of the local flavor Austin has to offer, it's an older home with a real Austin feel to it. We recommend a good dose of Tex Mex and a good walk around this part of Austin, you have to experience our laid back and fun attitude here in the southwest!
