Zilker house description

Explore Zilker Park from your front door. This architect designed 1955 duplex is built into a hillside with terraced gardens out your front windows and treetops out the back. At 1050 square feet this first floor 1 bedroom is spacious! An easy walk to restaurants, coffee shops, live music venues and all that makes Austin special. Downtown Austin is less than a mile away, an easy walk or bike ride on the lovely hike and bike trail.


Barton Creek Greenbelt: One of Austin's premier mountain biking, hiking, trail running and rock climbing destinations. This 8 mile long, 809 acre greenbelt begins less than 1/4 a mile away from our front door. Beautiful and fun in any season. During wet weather the creek is a kayak, tubing and swimming destination with numerous small waterfalls and fun rapids.

Austin's Hike and Bike Trail: Easy access to downtown is car-free on this waterfront trail, 1/2 block from our front door. Popular with bikers, walkers and joggers, trees and wildflowers provide shade and beauty along this 10.3 mile trail which loops around the lake. Several pedestrian bridges cross into downtown with access points to live music venues, restaurants, shopping, museums, concert halls, the opera house and beyond. Don't miss the Congress Avenue Bridge, home to the largest Urban Bat Colony in the world!
