Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I have had the great fortune of living in Austin for more than 20 years, and feel this Soco Bungalow is not only a great location in Travis Heights, but its the cutest house with a bit of retro and southwestern design to make this a wonderful, unique Austin experience. Walk to Soco (South Congress) 3 blocks away and shop, dine and entertain yourself. Moments to downtown and 3 blocks to Stacy Park and a free, heated, year-round pool. The two queen size beds are comfy, with 2 full bathrooms for the 3 bedrooms. I also have a twin bed in the smaller bedroom, great for kids but comfy for adults too. Very sweet! I maintain the property with the utmost care, cleanliness and professionalism. Remarkable and beautiful! My other properties are: Come Stay With Us! Home Away From Home.

Why the Owner Chose SoCo:
Trees, Birds, Quiet! Quiet, beautiful neighborhood with wonderful neighbors and amazing houses. This is the area of Austin that gives you direct walking access to shops, dining, music and Austin eclectic. Walking to Soco is so easy...5 minute walk to an organic grocery store, 24 hour diner Magnolia Cafe, Wahoo's Fish Tacos, Woodland Cafe, South Congress Cafe (YUM!), Vulcan Video, Guerro's and so many cute vintage clothing and Bohemian shops for men and women. On weekends, local artists set up their booths and sell awesome jewelry, hats, clothing, art and more. Studios and original art, great walking area. Come stay at the Soco Bungalow! You will be nestled in the heart of what makes Austin unique, close to downtown, Barton Springs and Soco.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house has two outdoor areas, with a screened in porch. There is a picnic bench and chairs and table in the front courtyard, and in the back screened porch is a nice hideaway with a couch and chairs. Perfect for outdoor relaxation. Cute, private, quaint house with amazing access to Austin Soco and downtown.
