Rosedale house description

Your two bedrooms & bath are part of my home, but you have a separate entrance and one adjoining wall to my kitchen and living room. Beguiling central city pied-a-terre, 3 miles north of the University of Texas and the Capitol, provides you with a sense of peace in the middle of the hub-bubbling city. Ten minutes to downtown, but take advantage of several people-friendly and dog-in-heaven trails bordering the creek; ride a bike on a popular in-town bike path; or attend whatever music, film, comedy, car racing, athletic (your own? your favorite team's?), gastronomic, or wine-tasting event-du-jour suits your fancy. Well-trained dogs welcomed (although no fenced-in yard). MoPac and Interstate-35 are 3 and 8 minutes away, respectively; bus stop is two blocks distant; and Cars-To-Go abound. Central Market, restaurants, shops, and Seton Hospital are within a mile; opulent Whole Foods in three. Tours of geologically curious spots in town? Let's discuss—en francais, si vous voudriez, o posiblemente tambien en espanol.

                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 1992

                                  About the owner: After studying at U.T. to start my life-long love affair with 'soft-rock' geology, followed by stints in Houston and Midland, Austin lured me back for keeps. I lucked into this jewel of a neighborhood north of the original Kerbey Lane restaurant by happenstance. Turned out--much to my father's delight--to be a mere two neighborhoods north of the house in Clarksville where my grandfather was born after the Civil War. The Eichler-style house is on a small hill overlooking the creek, and we've found remnants of Indian cooking utensils when planting trees. The abode hardly spoke to me until I went inside and got hooked by the light, in general, and the tree-house view of the creek, in specific. Perfect spot for two young sons, with an ephemeral creek full of exogyra fossils and evocatively vocal amphibians, depending on the season. Whipporwills and owls and blue herons also frequent the area on occasion.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Rosedale:
                                  Among the cognescenti, this happy 'hood is known for neat walks and pleasant bike routes. The Ridgelea cul-de-sac is conveniently located between MoPac (Loop 1) and Interstate-35. You can walk two blocks to catch the 17-minute bus to downtown or rent any of the ubiquitous Cars-To-Go. Not only is the location ideal on several counts, but your guest quarters are the cat's meow. The house, built in 1952 (when people used that expression), has an efficient layout that easily accommodates two comfortable living spaces, minus an actual kitchen in the guest quarters (but still equipped with the essentials: refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker). You're close to all the city has to offer--restaurants, shops, and bars in walking distance--yet adjacent to a (not completely messed with by humans) riparian zone offering a bit of sweet respite from the hub-bub.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  Infrastructure highlights: The 1500-gallon tank collects rainwater for the front yard; roof-top solar panels collect 350+ KW/month for our favorite 20th century invention--electricity; and a tankless water heater keeps you in the perfect! amount of hot water. Inside amenities: new mini-split AC/heater, new queen size bed, antique double bed in second bedroom (new mattresses on both), Keurig coffee-maker, microwave, small refrigerator, AT&T U-verse cable TV, and WiFi. Piano? We can discuss. Outside offerings: hammock, bikes, patio, and outdoor shower (additional) with limestone ripple rock floor.
