Car: Not Necessary

McCurdy House is located in the Historic Neighborhood of Pemberton Heights in the heart of Central Austin. It is a beautiful, walk-able neighborhood filled with historic homes and many of Austin's celebrity residents. It is less than a 3 mile cab or bike ride from downtown. Minutes from Ladybird Lake trail, you can get a run or paddle board in before hittting El Naranjo on Rainy Street DownTown. Follow it up with a cold beer on Luster Pearls back patio. For the champagne set, there is Jeffrey's and Josephine House less than 2 miles away. The perfect ending to a day of shopping at The Domain shopping center which includes high end retailers from Neiman Marcus to Sur La Table. For those attending football games, the home is 2.8 miles from UT/Darrell K Royal stadium - a mere 9 minute cab ride away. There is no more convenient location to everything Austin has to offer.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Jeff is an artist turned software operations guy. Carla is former architecture student turned high-tech exec, running marketing for Latin America. They met the first year they attended UT (hmm-hmm) years ago and never looked back. Now they have 2 minis to show for it.

Why the Owner Chose Pemberton Heights:
If you like design and appreciate your surroundings, this is the place for you. It is tranquil but in the heart of the action. It will support a quiet weekend of long walks and neighborhood eats or an action filled one. A great location for groups coming to enjoy F1, SXSW, ACL or just exploring everything Austin has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location! Location! Location! You won't find a more convenient spot. Rent a car, a bike or stick to cabs. A private suite: The home has 2 masters. It has a private suite above the garage, yet attached to the house. If you are traveling with co-workers or someone that you don't know very well, the suite is the most private and tucked away from the rest. The house also boasts a great terrace across the front for outdoor eating, drinks or hanging out. New everything: This home was taken down to the studs and rebuilt to the highest standards. Everything is new. Like to cook? A commercial style kitchen houses viking appliances and a large kitchen island. WiFi & cable TV.
