Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: I have lived in Austin for over 30 years. I came here from Seattle, Washington to dance with a modern dance company. I love the friendly vibe of the residents, the spirit of creativity in arts and business and the heart of the people. I've had my own company working for clients like Dell, Microsoft, and Austin Venture start-ups. I've helped them implement complex change initiatives and improve management. I have a 26 year old daughter who works for HomeAway and a husband who works for Spansion. We are active in non-profits and bettering the lives of people in Austin and around the world. We are wonderful hosts who are ready to make your stay relaxing and memorable. We are available 24/7 and live on-site in the larger home if anything is needed.

Why the Owner Chose Clarksville:
You have a private patio, backyard surrounded by greenery and birdsongs. The studio itself is relaxing and fully appointed. You do not need a car. You can walk to ACL, SXSW food, coffee, music, hiking, swimming and downtown. This neighborhood is super safe and your studio was once a music studio so it has extra security features.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
This home and studio are absolute charmers. Situated in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Austin, we find our neighbors to be super friendly and willing to help you out with suggestions or directions AND the number of shops and restaurants within a mile could satisfy almost every need! Affordable, peaceful and newly renovated.
