If you have any questions, problems, or would just like to find out what to do and where to go in Austin, our daughter/property manager (and St. Edwards Univ. grad.) lives in the main house. She loves to share her insider knowledge of the area and favorite local hangouts.

Year Purchased: 2006
About: We are world travelers who decided, after living in and traveling to many varied locations, that Austin is a great place to visit and live.
Why SoCo: We bought this house after 2 of our 3 daughters decided to attend St. Edwards Univ., and we decided to move out of the country! It was a great place for our girls to live and us to use as a home base when returning to the States. After the girls graduated, we decided to remodel, and share the Austin experience with others. We consider Austin home, and will eventually return to put down permanent roots there.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: The location of this property allows us to park our car and not get back in until we are ready to leave. It is close to everything, so you don't really need a car or worry about finding a parking space! We love walking to local parks and through the neighborhoods to experience the diverse architecture, landscaping, people and pets. Yes, we've seen chickens and even a pot bellied pig in some of the backyards!
