Located a few miles from South Congress, South Lamar, and downtown, this spacious South Austin home is designed for entertaining visitors of all ages as well as their beloved four-legged friends. The property is located near the South Austin intersection of William Cannon and Manchaca which is a short drive away from many uniquely Austin restaurants, food trailers, shops, parks, and more. It allows residents to experience Austin's creative and 'weird' landscape while maintaining a feeling of coziness that makes everyone feel welcome.
The one story home has 3 bedrooms with comfy queen beds and 2 full baths, including double vanities in the master. The master suite is recently renovated providing a modern and tranquil escape that wouldn't be complete without a bubble bath in the new large soaking tub. The kitchen is fully furnished and great for amateur or wannabe chefs who want to save a few dollars and make meals at home. Most importantly the large back yard provides a private oasis perfect for a cup of joe on the patio, reading a book in the hammock, playing a game of horse shoes, or enjoying time with family and pets. Whether you're coming to Austin for a long weekend or for work, you'll find everything you need to feel right at home!

What's not to love about Austin?!?! The music is abundant, the food is delicious, the scenery is beautiful, the art is unique, and most of all the people are welcoming! Known as the live music capital of the world, you can find events like SXSW (March) and ACL (October) only 15 minutes away. Don't waste your time on chain stores or restaurants... there are many uniquely Austin shops, eats, and treats right at your fingertips.
Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We are a young and energetic couple with big dreams to make an impact in the world. We are originally from the Dallas area but moved back to our old college stomping grounds a few years after graduating from UT and TX State. We take great pride in our first home and hope all who visit find it cozy, clean, and fun!!!
Why the Owner Chose South Lamar:
Austin is the kind of place that grabs your heart and soul and never lets go. It's where we first met in college and fell in love with all the outdoor activities, live music, good food, beautiful art, and friendly/talented/open-minded people. We knew this was the place we wanted to call home and hopefully raise a family one day.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Take one step out the back door and you'll quickly see why this property stole our hearts. As outdoor and pet lovers we saw an oasis in the back yard filled with lots of trees and space, including a hammock and horseshoe pit. Sit on the patio and enjoy a cup of joe while you watch the big Texas sky turn colors morning and night. Keep a watchful eye for doves, blue jays, cardinals, and playful squirrels in the morning and listen closely for owls that sometimes visit under the starry night sky. The back yard is our favorite 'room' in the house and provides a peaceful place for relaxing or fun including horse shoes, hula hoops, frisbees, croquet, and catch (all game equipment included in the garage). We also love the open layout of the living and kitchen areas that allow us to talk and laugh with friends without anyone feeling secluded or left out. All the natural light that comes in from the back yard windows leaves us with a feeling of warmth and happiness.
