Car: Recommended

The Urban Suburban is located in South Austin, very near MOPAC/Loop1, and close to Ben White Blvd./290/71. The Airport is a straight shot from the house.

There is a city park, with playground, picnic shelter, and basketball court, located an easy walk from the house. Adjacent to the park is a large nature preserve. Both have walking trails, some well defined, some more rustic. The park has a picnic shelter, playground, and other facilities.

Congress Ave. Bridge - Mexican Freetail Bats - over a million fly out from under the bridge nightly at dusk, weather permitting, from March until early November. You can view them flying off into the sky from the bridge or from along the shore of Ladybird Lake for free, or from a boat on the lake (paid cruise). This is downtown, so parking needs to be addressed. More information on all of this here: http://www.batcon.org/index.php/get-involved/visit-a-bat-location/congress-avenue-bridge/subcategory/51.html

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: From owners: My hubby and I are a long married couple who have lived in Austin twice now, for a total of about 13 years. We are both originally from New Orleans. We lived in Houston for several decades, in Las Vegas for a few years, and plan to retire soon in Austin. With this property, we really strive to create an attractive, comfortable, well equipped and furnished temporary home for our visitors, and try to do everything we can to accommodate our guests' needs and requests. We live on property, in the adjacent house, so we are nearly always available to guests if/when we are needed. We enjoy hosting, and interacting with our guests, but we leave the amount of interaction up to our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Southampton:
Although new to our home and our immediate neighborhood, we are already proud of our property; having experienced living in several other Austin homes, high rises, condos and apartments, we know that this is a very special place which is located in an interesting neighborhood with a long, rich history. We feel that our property name, 'The Urban Suburban', truly describes our home and neighborhood - friendly, quiet, comfortable, w/nature all around, but with an urban vibe. We purchased this property because it was quality new construction, in a great location, in a quiet neighborhood, but near shopping, and a convenient distance from nearly everything the city has to offer. We loved the private backyard with covered porch, the high ceilings, large kitchen, the study, and all the little custom finishing details that the builder included when he built the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
From owners: How often does one get to stay in a brand new house? We purchased all new major appliances, and nearly everything else in the house is new, with the exception of most of the art. Why put up with old plumbing, difficult parking, and few bathrooms in a small space when you can stay with us at The Urban Suburban - a new (built and furnished 2013), 1915 square foot house, with three bedrooms plus study, two and a half baths, 2 car clean empty garage with opener and remote, a private fenced rear yard with covered porch that has seating group and a barbecue pit. Convenient to major freeways and shopping, walking distance to a park and nature preserve. All this in a quirky but quiet neighborhood located a quick drive from downtown Austin. We purchased the property January, 2013, just after the builder received the Certificate of Occupancy for the property from the City of Austin. The furnishing of the house was completed as a dedicated vacation rental in late March of 2013. The Urban Suburban is a property dedicated to guests' use only. Our first guests stayed with us in late March/early April 2013. This is our only rental property and we took the steps to make it code compliant with the City of Austin. We're proud to be officially licensed as a Short Term Rental property - the city requires STR licenses via their Code Compliance office; the requirements for short term rental residences to obtain licensing were put in place by the city council with a start date of October 2012. After going through the application process with the city, we received our license in April, 2013. The City requires taxes for stays less than 30 consecutive days, and so does the state - the City taxes are 9%, which includes a 2% venue tax; the State tax is 6%.
