Bouldin house description

This South Austin cottage, built in 1914, was lovingly remodeled last year. Hardwood floors, tiled bath, and sweet architectural charm and character make this cottage feel like home. It is nestled under towering live oaks and pecan trees in a park-like setting. Sit on the rocking chair on the shady front porch, or lay in the grass looking at the sunlight filtering through the 100 year old trees.

You would never know you are just 2 miles from the best that Austin has to offer. The nightlife and shopping of downtown are just a quick bike ride or drive away. Enjoy the restaurants and unique stores of South Congress – Vespaio, Enoteca, Guero’s, Perla, Uncommon Objects and the Continental Club. Walk to the South Austin Tennis Center, or hop on a bike and you’ll be dipping in Barton Springs in ten minutes.

The Austin City Limits Festival in Zilker Park is just 2.2 miles away. SXSW venues downtown can be reached by an 8 dollar cab ride.

We’ve created a cozy home away from home, with luxurious linens and a comfy high-quality bed. You’ll have everything you need for a comfortable stay: complete kitchen, spotless bathroom, wireless internet.

This house is beautifully situated in the heart of Austin, one of the most unique cities in America.
