Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: In 1994 I bought my first historical home in Austin and have enjoyed being a landlord for over ten years. All four of my properties are in neighborhoods on the National Register of Historic Places. Separately, having used an imperfect diet instead of chemotherapy to reverse my own disabling disease, my other career objective is to use over two decades as a Registered Dietitian to bring the healing power of food to others. As featured speaker for radio and TV, medical professionals, universities and corporations, I have authored a book that sells in twelve countries and is a best seller at Amazon. A documentary of my recovery, “The Incurables”, also airs internationally on Veria TV.

Why the Owner Chose Pemberton Heights:
On the National Register of Historic Places, it's not just the location that makes a stay at this property a real value. Fine furnishings you'll very rarely find in rental properties abound. Details include Dresden and crystal chandeliers, Jonathan Adler and custom furniture, a Venetian mirror, beautiful oil paintings, Frette Linens and Beautyrest Simmons mattresses, a large original Audubon print, Le Creuset cookware, plantation shutters in every room, an antique Eastlake bedroom set. This property is a perfect fit for an individual or small group wanting immediate access to the University of Texas and Austin's best intellectual, sport, government, food, hospital, music and art activity. It's a perfect fit for someone who places more value on craftsmanship, books and lovely parks than on big screen televisions, corporate housing decor and lazy boys. It's a good fit for one who understands why premium real estate is priced at a premium. Walk to the University of Texas, Downtown, Seton and Heart Hospitals. Or walk to Austin's most popular restaurants including the iconic Original Kerbey Lane Cafe (open 24 hours every day), East Side King by Paul Qui (winner of America's Top Chef), Pasta & Co. (Austin's only fresh pasta manufacturer), Teo's Gelato and Italian Coffee (voted Top Ten in the USA), Austin Pizza (voted #1), Olive & June (Austin's youngest five star chef), the Santa Rita Cantina (voted #1 for salsa). You can also walk to Austin's oldest and most tranquil park, Pease Park, and the Hike and Bike Trail. Walk to the flagship Central Market, banks, clothiers, flower shops, dry cleaners. You're also five minutes away from Whole Foods Market world flagship grocery store.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Prestigious real estate at a reasonable price. Spaciousness for a historical two bedroom cottage with 1350 square feet and high comfort. Immediate proximity to UT's cultural and sports events & downtown. Plantation shutters and original hardwood floors throughout. National Register Historic status. Access to Austin's best public schools including Casis Elementary, O Henry Middle School, Austin High. Walking distance to Austin's most popular restaurants, Pease Park, Seton Hospital and The Heart Hospital. Quiet and lower population density given there are no apartment complexes nor condominiums in this neighborhood. Five minutes to downtown and flagships for Whole Foods Market and Central Market.
