Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I fell in love with Austin while attending University here. I left briefly with work -- got back to Austin as soon as I could!

Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
This house was purchased for its location relative to everything Austin, along with the retro 1940's neighborhood appeal. The easy, laid back charm of the house and neighborhood remain, but now include high tech convenience and entertainment -- WIFI, hidef flat screen TV, cable and DVR service!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Highlights that we enjoy and are yours to experience include gathering around the kitchen island, the feel of the wood floors under your feet, and hanging out on the stone patio around the fire pit on cool evenings.
