Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Our passion is to provide an outstanding property where our guests will continue to come back year after year. We have a large family with 11 grandchildren and more to come so having a home large enough for families to be able to come to Austin and share a home with friends is important for us. I am a Founding Member and Director of the Austin Rental Alliance, an organization of Vacation Rental Homes for the Austin Area. I am a licensed Texas Real Estate Broker and owner of Easter and Easter, Realtors

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Austin has grown up around this quiet area and Neighborhood. The area has the most fantastic shopping just minutes from the front door. This home was built when it was considered almost out of town but now Austin has expanded and moved next door. The number of Superior and Fast Food restaurants will just amaze you, plus the selection of Organic Food Stores,Starbucks,Walmart which are just blocks away. And you can catch any major highway to get you to the Airport, UT or Downtown within 15 minutes (non rush hour drive time).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The minute you step into this home you know we have spent hours making it cozy and comfortable with quality furnishing, crown molding, new hardwoods, top of the line linens and bedding. The home is a smoke and pet free residence. We have spent additional money on energy features to make the home as energy efficient as possible. Additional care was given to the drapes with light and noise blocking panels plus drapes which also reduce noise and light. It's exceptionally clean and we work hard to make your stay perfect.
