Zilker house description

Leave the car at home & Walk to it all!

Any local will tell you that there's simply no other neighborhood that can deliver the ultimate Austin experience like Barton Hills can. This is the perfect home for your Austin vacation!

With a unique proximity to anything and everything worth seeing and doing in Austin, this 2 story, 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath luxury custom home sits in the hills just above Barton Springs Pool and Zilker Park - the venue for Austin City Limits (ACL).

Immediately outside the front door of our home is a brand new Bike Lane that, for safety purposes, is barricaded off from traffic.

Walk the bike lane directly to Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Park, Austin City Limits (ACL), Restaurant Row, Town Lake Hike & Bike Trail, Lady Bird Lake, Canoe Rentals, Bike Rentals, Disc Golf, Zilker Botanical Gardens, UMLAUF Sculpture Garden and more!

With 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths up, and a Gym/5th bedroom with half bath down, this home provides plenty of comfortable sleeping space for your vacation.

The large and open floor plan between the living room and Chef's kitchen is spacious, warm and inviting. The double doors from the living room open up immediately to our large furnished patio. The patio is sandwiched between two large and healthy Pecan Trees which, many years ago, used to be part of a larger Pecan Orchid. A third Pecan tree sits in the corner of the spacious side yard.

Modern amenities include flat panel televisions throughout, stainless steel Jenn-Air Chef's appliances with double ovens, soft close drawers, a wine refrigerator, BBQ gas grill, and more!

The house is also equipped with a high-end security system, cable, internet, phone, and an over-sized two car garage with a foosball table.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: My name is Mike and I first moved to Austin in 1998 to attend the University of Texas. After finishing law school, my wife and I moved into this beautiful house and started our family and our careers. My brother John and I operate the Rubin Law Firm, a civil litigation practice, which offices on 6th Street & Congress Avenue in downtown Austin. I have loved Austin since the first time I visited the city and we never plan on leaving.

                          Why the Owner Chose Zilker:
                          We selected this house because of its unique proximity to anything and everything worth seeing and doing in this great city. Any local will tell you that 78704, and particularly Barton Hills, is the jewel of Austin. In my opinion, there's simply no other neighborhood that can deliver the ultimate Austin experience like Barton Hills can. It's The best.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Walk to it all, or take a cab ride to the heart of downtown - you are in the center of Everything!!
