Downtown house description

Wonderful home located on the edge of Downtown Austin in the Historic Clarksville neighborhood. Totally renovated Craftsman Style home originally built in 1940.
Great central location right off 6th Street a couple of blocks east of Loop 1 (Mopac). Exceptional convenience to all festivals, restaurants, shopping, parks, clubs, conventions and shows. Restaurants, grocery stores, parks, shopping and clubs in walking distance within the neighborhood. Very close to the University of Texas, the Austin Convention Center, the Warehouse District and South Congress (SoCo). Advance reservations requested since this is my home and need to make arrangements to be away from home during your stay. Great neighborhood with great neighbors. I have lived here over 17 years. Thanks in advance for being respectful of my neighbors and property. Have fun planning your Austin trip!
