LOCATION & PRIVACY

We put great thought into creating a special Austin oasis at Casa SoCo. You are literally steps away from two of the hippest streets in town — South Congress & South 1st -- and a long walk or quick cab to downtown. But you are also hidden, on a quiet, dead-end street with loads of privacy and plenty of secure, off – street parking (a rarity in this hood).

Casa SoCo has an open living space that flows into the kitchen; there is plenty of space to move. You'll oooh and ahhh over the brand new Big Chill aqua fridge and enjoy the well-stocked kitchen with a Frigidaire gas stove, dishwasher, microwave and wine fridge.

Every room has fabulous windows and the natural light in Casa SoCo is superb.

The master bedroom has an incredibly comfortable King size bed with silky soft (but cool) bamboo linens. The bed has a Serta pillowtop mattress that is firm throughout but plush). The master includes a glassed-in rain shower, sink and toilet. A vanity with seating and mirror is also in the master, along with a full closet and dresser.

We provide shampoo, conditioner, lotion, picnic supplies, extra towels, lots of odds & ends

The 2nd bedroom has a Queen size bed, bamboo linens, dresser and full closet.

The 3rd bedroom is set up for two — adults who want to sleep in separate beds, or kids. There are two brand new, comfy twin beds, same lux linens and a full size closet and dresser. A box of toys and children's books are stocked here as well.

The 2nd & 3rd bedroom share a large bathroom with a full size bathtub/shower and sink.

The 4th bedroom/study has a convertible bed. The back wall is all window — looking out to the private patio. This is a fantastic place to work with a built in desk. It’s also a nice little hide-out that would be completely comfortable to sleep in. Curtains can be drawn for privacy. A mirror and dresser is in the room, along with hooks to hang clothing. Please note, this room is best suited for fully able-bodied people -- when the bed is pulled out to a King size, there is less room to move around.

Our back patio is an ideal place to enjoy a bottle of wine and dinner. Casa SoCo has plenty of outdoor seating and is a perfect place to chill with your family or friends staying at Casa SoCo. Please note, this is a place for private get togethers with no more than 6 unrelated adults. This is not a party house.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  GEORGOUSNESS! COMFORT! and LOCATION! Right in the middle of everything. You are two blocks from South Congress and one block from South 1st. These two avenues are filled with fabulous restaurants, excellent shopping, great bars and spectacular people watching. This is an all-local slice of life. You can easily walk or bike to most points of interest. Downtown is “down the hill” of Congress. You can cross over the bridge (after you see the Austin bats fly out at dusk), admire Lake Lady Bird and then you’re in the 2nd St District. Just a few blocks further is 6th Street. Our city jewel, Zilker Park, (home of ACL Fest and much more) is also nearby and quickly approached heading down South 1st.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: Ashley is a native Austinite. She is all Austin — “different from the rest of Texas” — but knows Texas-friendly hospitality like no one else. Ashley is a public policy guru, people problem solver and philanthropist (and mom). Frank is a native of Holland, grew up in Canada and has been an ex-pat all over Asia, Europe and the Middle East, working for the same global corporation since he completed his engineering degree (and a dad). We would absolutely love to share our beloved city with you with as much personalized service as you like.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bouldin:
                  This is Ashley's adult dream home in her favorite neighborhood where she lived pre-kids. The area is eclectic, walkable, friendly, artistic and close to everything you want to see in Austin. The shops and restaurants are of very high quality and all of it is local. When we saw the house itself we fell in love with the amazing tree, the natural light and the warm feel of the place. Casa SoCo has a very special vibe.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Location & Privacy: One of the first things you’ll notice is how private Casa SoCo is, even though it is right in the middle of everything. You are two blocks from South Congress and one block from South 1st. These two avenues are filled with fabulous restaurants, excellent shopping, great bars and spectacular people watching. This is an all-local slice of life. You can easily walk or bike to most points of interest. Downtown is “down the hill” of Congress. You can cross over the bridge (after you see the Austin bats fly out at dusk), admire Lake Lady Bird and then you’re in the 2nd St District. Just a few blocks further is 6th Street. Our city jewel, Zilker Park, (home of ACL Fest and much more) is also nearby and quickly approached heading down South 1st. You can easily get a cab as well. Or if you are driving, there is easy access to both I-35 (to Formula 1) and Mopac. We have a private, paved driveway providing secure parking for 2-3 cars. Most of Casa SoCo is surrounded by a serene concrete fence and the entire home is sheltered by an enormous oak tree. Our tree itself is a work of art! Comfort: We’ve furnished Casa SoCo with comfort and beauty in mind. We have everything you need for a home away from home. Families who are relocating will find Casa SoCo an unbelievable alternative to a crummy, overpriced furnished apartment. Those traveling to Austin for work, whether short term or for an extended stay will love the peace and ease of being in the heart of the city without the anytown, USA feel. Of course, when your purpose is just pleasure and soaking in Austin, couples, friends & families will love Casa SoCo! Local Casa SoCo is owned and operated by Ashley & Frank de Jong. We live in Austin and are always a phone call away. We are licensed and registered with the City.
