                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: Deirdre Earls graduated with Cum Laude honors in Scientific Nutrition and her healthcare career spans nearly thirty years. Having used an imperfect diet instead of chemotherapy to reverse her own disease, now her objective is to use over twenty years as a Registered Dietitian to bring the healing power of food to others. A featured speaker for radio and TV, medical professionals, universities and corporations, Deirdre's books sell in many countries and she has been published in Prevention magazine. A documentary of her recovery, “The Incurables”, airs internationally on Veria TV. Her private consultations, lectures, books including 'Your Healing Diet Austin', menu designs, blog and newsletter are designed to help others easily implement a sustainable healing diet anytime and anywhere on the path to remarkable results.

                          Why the Owner Chose Bryker Woods:
                          I own several properties in central Austin and love this one for several reasons. Unlike many central Austin areas, this neighborhood is exceptionally quiet and safe with virtually no night time commercial activity nor gigantic apartment / condo buildings. Having spent two years in Europe I learned what makes a hotel stay luxurious without being expensive. Central location and deluxe linens combined with good design and quality materials always mattered more than square footage, so this studio was an obvious fit for my offerings. I also own and operate VRBO listing #293015, the stone cottage that sits entirely seperated from but at the front of the piece of land that houses the studio. Additionally I own and operate long-term rentals in Hyde Park, another Austin neighborhood on the National Register of Historic Places. I hope you'll enjoy this garden studio as much as I think you will.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                          Located in the coveted, quiet and safe Brykerwoods/Old West Austin area, this charming studio puts the best of Austin at your fingertips. In 2007, the American Planning Association selected the Old West Austin Historic District as one of the ten greatest neighborhoods in the United States.

The particularly beautiful Pease Park or Town Lake Hike and Bike trail are accessible on foot. Driving or biking it's 5-10 minutes to UT, downtown, Austin's most popular parks for hiking and biking, the flagship Whole Foods Market or Central Market, the Texas capitol, museums, shopping boutiques, music venues, local eateries, taverns. Day trips may include visits to exceptional caves and water holes, The Alamo, and world-renowned central Texas BBQ joints.
