Zilker apartment description

Charming duplex in serene setting, within walking distance to some of the best “hot spots” in Austin! Sleeps 6 with two bedrooms, each with queen size bed and ceiling fans, plus a sleeper sofa in the living room. Comes with well stocked kitchen and dining area, with french doors leading to a private backyard that’s a great place to relax and enjoy our complimentary bottle of wine.
Internet and cable are available, along with a washer and dryer, which is perfect for families traveling with kids, or for those who want to enjoy a vacation getaway with all the perks.
Has reserved driveway parking for two cars (plus street parking), but you can just walk out the door to enjoy a refreshing swim, or a lazy afternoon, at Barton Springs Pool, which is only a half mile away. This is a great location to explore Barton Hills & Zilker Park neighborhoods, stroll through the Umlauf Sculpture Gardens, enjoy music and food at a variety of great restaurants, or walk on the Lady Bird Lake hike and bike trail, all of which are less than a mile away!

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About: I've lived in Austin for 15 years, am married, and have two dogs. I'm part of Austin's high-tech industry and work as a software developer. I also play either standup bass or guitar in a band or two at any given time.

                  Why Zilker:
                  This property is the first house I ever owned! I lived on one side and rented out the other side. So I have a strong attachment to this home and have put a lot of time and energy into making it beautiful and comfortable. I chose this house because it is in such a beautiful and convenient area--it's close to everything that I love about Austin.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  My friend, the celebrated Austin artist, Stefanie Distefano, created the beautiful floor mosaics that are masterfully placed throughout the house. I particularly love waking up in the back bedroom and looking out through the french windows out at the tree tops. It's so private and green!
