About: My husband and I grew up in Austin. We absolutely love this city and enjoy sharing it with others, so please ask us for recommendations. We have a beautiful family, and are so happy to meet new people.
Why Travis Heights: We bought this home as an investment property. It was much bigger than we needed, but we just couldn't pass it up! It is just magical, beautiful and perfectly located. Everyone that sees it just falls in love.
It is very unique to be able to offer such an amazing place to travelers. We have put a whole lot of time and love into it and are happy to share it with new friends.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The main house was built in the 1950's. It has been wonderfully maintained, and upgraded, yet so much character still remains. There is a perfect architectural balance of vintage and the functionality of a new home. For example, the kitchen is newly upgraded, with wonderful new appliances and cabinetry. However, the bathrooms retain an amazing vintage feel and decor, all of the wood floors are original to the house, as are the large doorbell chimes situated in the living room. The view is amazing, you can see St. Edward's University from the upstairs. Also the backyard is just incredible. It is amazing to have so much outside space, so close to downtown Austin. The yard is maintained and landscaped very well so that it may be enjoyed to its fullest.
