Clarksville house description

“A delightful mix of beauty, comfort, and location.“

“A beautiful, well-kept, comfortable and cozy home perfectly nestled steps away from the best that Austin has to offer.”

Our house on Harthan Street is a delightful mix of beauty, comfort, and location. In 2010, Harthan Street became Austin's first local historic district. It is a charming, picturesque street with only 10 homes.

From the outside, you'll notice our large front porch, the small tended gardens and landscaping, and the tinkling of the stone water fountains. The house itself is a beautiful Craftsman home built in the 1920s that's been restored and is kept in excellent shape.

It has polished wooden floors, high-ceilings, a quaint fireplace, and lots of warm, natural light that shines through the many large windows. It is a beautiful, well-kept, comfortable and cozy home perfectly nestled steps away from the best that Austin has to offer.

We walk everywhere - to hike and bike, buy groceries, shop, have coffee, dine and dance - but we also have quick driving access (2-10 minutes) to the major highways (MoPac and I-35). It's a perfect downtown location in Old West Austin. In 2007, the APA voted Old West Austin as one of the 10 Greatest Neighborhoods in America!

                  Why the Owner Chose Clarksville:
                  Our house on Harthan St is in Clarksville in Old West Austin. In 2007, the APA voted Old West Austin as one of the 10 Greatest Neighborhoods in America! Then in 2010, Harthan Street was selected to became Austin's first local historic district. Clarksville has the best of both worlds: It’s a quaint, quiet Austin neighborhood with unique homes, diverse residents, and plenty of history, but it’s in the center of the city and only a stone’s throw from downtown’s many attractions. Clarksville was founded in the 1870s, and due to its historic nature, the neighborhood has been preserved as well as many of the historic homes. The streets are hilly, there is plenty of greenery, and there are many restaurants and shops accessible by foot. Clarksville is far from suburbia; it’s an eclectic urban hub in the heart of the city so it attracts people who love to be in the mix of things and is home to artists, students, professionals, and young families. If you enjoy walking, you will love strolling through Clarksville’s hilly streets. Clarksville is full of cafes, coffee shops, and restaurants.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The house is perfectly located with walking access to everything: downtown, town lake, the hike-and-bike trail, Whole Foods, Farmers market (on Saturdays), University of Texas, Sixth Street, Warehouse District, Auditorium shores, Zilker Park and much more.
