Barton Hills townhome description

Staying here in this 2-story tranquil townhome, you can walk or bike to Austin's best attractions: Zilker Park, Barton Springs, ACL, SXSW, Long Center, Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail, Zilker Botanical Gardens, Palmer Events Center, Zach Scott Theater, go canoeing, or eat at plenty of the great restaurants, (like the original Chuy's) and there's also a grocery nearby. It is also just 2 miles to the Barton Oaks Helicopter F1 transport facility! The city bus is a only a 10 minute walk. Or you can stay at home and have a glass of wine on the upstairs porch overlooking a little forest; or watch Netflix on the 32' Flatscreen. You'll have nice views and beautiful sunsets. The kitchen has all basic appliances and a fancy coffee machine for caffeine achievers! 2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, A gas fireplace. Beautiful neighborhood. Parking available. Wifi. Great place for kids who are old enough (and young enough) to negotiate stairs. We can usually offer discounts for extended stays--just ask. We are licensed by the City of Austin. We are always happy to help you navigate all the Austin awesomeness! Send us a message if you have any questions!
Accessible by foot: Austin's Urban Jewels
Zilker Park, Barton Springs, and the Hike and Bike Trail consist of 360 acres on which visitors can ride bikes (bike rental a mile away), hike, rent kayaks or canoes, play volleyball or disk golf, fly kites, or stroll through the botanical gardens. While at the lake you can try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding, the world's fastest growing water sport. Barton Springs Road is home to many bars and restaurants, a putting range, a mini golf course, and a performing arts center. Nearby is the world class Zac Scott Theater, the Austin Nature and Science Center, the famous food trailers, the South Congress boutiques, home to First Thursday, and a spectacular view of the Congress Bridge bats flying at dusk between March and November.

                      Austin is the Live Music Capitol of the World. Austin City Limits Festival--you will be closer than most people can park!

                      South by Southwest, Formula One! Zilker Park and Botanical Gardens, Barton Springs, and 6th Street. Austin has everything!

                      If you stay here, you are close enough to walk, but still far enough a way that you can get a peaceful night's sleep!

                       

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About: Tom and Daris are artsy musicians that perform with the Austin Symphony, Ballet Austin, and Austin Lyric Opera. We have spent many years performing and living abroad in places such as Italy, Austria, Mexico, Germany, and most recently in Tanzania. We have two feral children that are relatively house broken and rarely bite. The kids have to attend ballet, opera, and symphony more than they would like and usually resort to hanging with the stage crew. Quite frequently we host foreign exchange students (high school and college) just because we enjoy sharing the best of American culture, like spray-on tans, and dog sweaters. Seriously, we love people and sharing Austin with them. We look forward to hosting you!

                      Why Barton Hills:
                      This property is amazing because it is very private and quiet, yet very close to Austin's finest attractions. You will be closer to ACL than people can park their cars! You can go jogging and then jump into Barton Springs. The greenbelt is great for hiking during the day and 6th Street is fab for evening pleasures. This is a great place if you want to have fun and then retreat to a peaceful accommodation. Then hopefully you will have time to enjoy some coffee from the fancy machine or watch a movie on the large flat screen TV.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      The views, the quiet wilderness even though you are in the city, the artsy neighborhood, the greenbelt, and of course, Barton Springs-wow! Zilker Park!
