Property description

Location, Location, Location. If you like paying a very reasonable price for the choicest real estate with classical architecture, quality furnishings and quiet in the heart of urban Austin, you've found the right place.

Just a few minutes from UT and downtown, and walking distance to Seton Hospital and Austin's most popular restaurants, this charming cottage sits in the coveted, quiet, and safe Brykerwoods/Old West Austin area. On the National Register of Historic Places, The American Planning Association selected the Old West Austin Historic District as one of the USA's ten greatest neighborhoods in 2007.

*100% cotton linens. Feather pillows. Down comforters.
*2 bedrooms with queen-sized beds. 3rd bedroom is private with two twins.
*Dining table and buffet of Brazilian Rosewood, the most revered lumber in the world. Wood floors and blinds.
*Two High Definition TV's. Free Wi-Fi and Standard Cable.
*Full kitchen.
*6 ft privacy fence. Huge deck.
*Off street parking off the alley behind the property.
*Les Paul and Antone's memorabilia. Vintage books.
*Stamped Chinese art. Handcarved chairs.

Uniqueness: Very reasonable price for some of Austin's most expensive real estate offering quiet despite immediate proximity to downtown and UT. This house is replete with items you won't find elsewhere including a splendid Brazilian Rosewood dining room table and buffet, stone masonry and original hardwood floors with no carpet anywhere, wooden blinds instead of miniblinds or fabric on windows, Les Paul and Antone's memorabilia, handcarved Mexican chairs, a large collection of eclectic hardback books.

More Uniqueness: The separated and private third bedroom/bathroom doubles as a Man Cave, nanny space, or quiet place to rest, watch tv, or work independently from others and it has its own 22' Vizio HDTV. Teenagers and grandkids love this private space, too.

Real Estate Value and Exemplary Schools: The most valued real estate often includes top schools and this cottage is no different. This property has access to Austin's top public schools including Brykerwoods Elementary, O'Henry Middle School and Austin High School.

Please note: A short term rental accepts stays of less than 30 nights. Stays at this property are 30 nights or longer. This property is not a short term rental.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: In 1994 I bought my first historical home in Austin and have enjoyed being a landlord for over ten years. Separately, having used an imperfect diet instead of chemotherapy to reverse my own disabling disease, my other career objective is to use over two decades as a Registered Dietitian to bring the healing power of food to others. As featured speaker for radio and TV, medical professionals, universities and corporations, I have authored a book that sells in twelve countries and is a best seller at Amazon. A documentary of my recovery, “The Incurables”, also airs internationally on Veria TV.

Why the Owner Chose Bryker Woods:
I own several 1930's cottages in old Austin, all of them in National Historical Register areas. For two years I lived in and fell in love with this cottage for many reasons. With no bars and no nightly commercial activity, this neighborhood is exceptionally quiet and safe. Having spent two years in Europe I learned to value immediate proximity to cultural activities, quality materials, and classic design over square footage. Beautiful cottages like this one became the natural fit for me. Take a look at the map provided to confirm why the cottage sits among the most expensive real estate areas in Austin. I hope you'll enjoy my enchanting cottage as much as I did while living in it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Beautiful historical stone cottage with embedded fossils at the front door entrance. Very quiet neighborhood with immediate access to Mopac/Loop 1 and Austin's best intellectual, collegiate, music and state government activities. Unique furnishings including Les Paul memorabilia plus a dining table and buffet made from gorgeous Brazilian Rosewood, the most revered (and now protected) lumber of all time. Comfort ensured on quality mattresses and linens made from 100% cotton. Large screened in back porch and deck for outdoor enjoyment. Off street parking. Separated and private space for rest, independent work, relaxation. Access to Austin's top public schools.
