Property description

Experience Austin with a very spacious house right in the heart of town. WALKING DISTANCE TO THE SXSW FESTIVAL!

104-year-old Craftsman home built around 1910. It has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, and a sleeping porch, can easily sleep at least 7, unless you're willing to share, don't mind inflatable mattresses, or pallet on the floor, in which case, 12 could easily sleep here. Swimming pool, 1/4 wraparound porch that feels secluded. There is plenty of space for privacy even with multiple people in the house. The kitchen has new appliances and there is a washer and dryer on site. Internet access. We have bikes for riding around the town, if you wish.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1977

Why Judges Hill:
If Austin were a monopoly board game, this house would be on 'Boardwalk,' Walk to 6th street, the Capital building, The University of Texas(great house for UT football games), and a short drive to everything else even during traffic hours.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
So many new homes out there are what you would call cookie cutter. Not this house. This house was built with pride and care and you will notice this when you stay here. The woodwork gives such a warmth and radiates great vibes. They don't build them like this anymore.' Multiple people will be able to find a private space. And, as I've said, it's located close to so many things.
