                              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.
