Car: Recommended

Unbeatable location and size in the heart of Austin! This spacious oasis in Central Austin is walking distance to downtown and the State Capitol, the Governor's Mansion and the University of Texas (home to the Harry Ransom Center, the Blanton Art Museum and the UT Tower). For those interested in the great outdoors, there is fabulous swimming in the icy cold waters of Barton Springs (68 degrees year round) or local hang out, Deep Eddy pool. Austin offers beautiful hiking and mountain biking along the Barton Creek Greenbelt also walking distance from the house. in addition, if you are a jogger or want to go for a leisurely bike ride or walk, Lady Bird Lake has trails ranging from 3-12 miles long -- this too is walking distance from the property. If you are attending the ACL Festival in Zilker Park, it is within walking distance. For Formula One fans, all transportation leaves from downtown walking distance from the home. Walk to one of the best bar scenes in Texas (6th Street) and to many of Austin's best restaurants. Lions Municipal Golf course is less than a mile away. Outlet mall shopping is less than 30 minutes away at the Prime Outlet mall in San Marcos.

While you are in Austin, be sure to go see live music at the Austin City Limits Moody Theater downtown, catch a show at the nostalgic Paramount Theater downtown, eat at the 5 star restaurant, Hudson's on the Bend (specializing in wild game), take a boat ride on Lake Travis, visit the Hulahut on Lake Austin for margaritas and polynesian cuisine, have fantastic Tex Mex at Maudie's, catch a UT football, basketball or baseball game, go see the Gutenberg Bible at the Harry Ransom Center and the powerful collections at the LBJ Library and Museum, go shopping at the fun boutiques along South Congress and pick up one of the best pizzas you'll ever eat at Home Slice Pizza or stop in at one of the gourmet food trailers, including 'Hey Cupcake,' take a tour of the State Capitol, the UT tower, and the Governor's Mansion, enjoy some of the best golfing in Texas at Barton Creek Country Club, go for a day of pampering at the Lake Austin Spa, or head down I-35 for 30 miles and shop at one of the largest outlet malls in the nation.

Don't forget to see the bats that come out under the Congress Avenue bridge at sunset!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I've lived in Austin, Texas since 1984 when I started school at the University of Texas -- go horns! I love Austin and all the fun things there are to do here. The city is so vibrant! I lived in this house for 18 years and only moved a few miles away because of a growing family. Hands down -- this is the best location in town because of its close proximity to everything there is to do and the fact that you experience no traffic!

Why the Owner Chose Zilker:
This home is a unique pocket of Austin called 'Clarksville' and it's a fabulous pedestrian area where, within 3 blocks, you can walk to the local grocery (Fresh Plus), Italian bistro (Cipollina), coffee house (Cafe Medici), drug store with original soda fountain (Nau's Drugs), church (St. Luke's), 9th street park, local watering hole (the Tavern), and more. I bought this property because I wanted to be able to walk to work downtown, the University of Texas, and the State Capitol. I also wanted to be able to have fabulous restaurants and night spots near my home. Some of the best dining in Austin, including Sandra Bullock's, Bess Bistro, southwestern cuisine favorite, Z Tejas, and hidden jewel, Cafe Josie, are all walking distance. The art galleries along West 6th Street and the bars, including the Johnny Cash tribute, the Mean Eyed Cat, are all walking distance. The outside of the property is very unassuming, and then, when you walk inside, you see a fabulous remodel with warmth and all modern amenities. This is one of the larger homes in the area and one of the few that has ample parking and a spacious backyard.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walking distance to ACL Festival, downtown, 6th Street, Zilker Park, the University of Texas, the State Capitol, and the heart of the music scene in Austin.
