Old Enfield cottage description

Built in the 20's, Leon House is the guesthouse of my historic Austin property, but separated from my house by a fence and good sized yard and accessed from a separate alley, ensuring a private and comfortable stay. This 500 square foot cottage features a living/dining area with HDTV and WiFi, a cozy queen bedroom with yummy linens, season-appropriate bedding and a closet, a small but highly functional shower bathroom and a full kitchen, outfitted by me (I love to cook) that has a dishwasher and washer/dryer. I lived here for six weeks recently while my home was being renovated and was seriously questioning the need to move across the yard.

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          Austin is full of possibilities: great restaurants and ubercool trailers (or food trucks for some of you out-of-towners), amazing live music, a full festival calendar, UT and all it has to offer, world class shopping from the chic Domain to funky S. Congress, up and coming S. First and the stylish Second Street District, watersports, hiking and cycling, museums, art - it's truly a hip and happening place. Leon House is located right in the thick of it. Not downtown, but as close as you can get without living in a skyscraper. Close to Enfield Road, you can catch a bus to UT, to the airport, downtown, or north Austin. Whole Foods is within walking distance (though I'm lazy and usually drive), as are numerous coffee shops and restaurants. A car is handy but not essential, and biking is a great way to get around (especially to ACL and SXSW). And I'm so happy to offer tips and advice on where to go, where to eat, what to see, how to get to the dry cleaners, etc.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: I'm a northeasterner, but have lived in Austin for 23 years. I love it here! An avid and discriminating traveler, I know what I like when I stay in hotels and rental properties. I love cooking (and eating), and am so glad the Austin restaurant scene has evolved from when I moved here (from San Francisco): right after I arrived, the local paper had a (GLOWING!!!) review. Of Red Lobster. Nothing against Red Lobster, but there are now plenty of more unique restaurants and trailers to review.

                          Why the Owner Chose Old Enfield:
                          Leon House is private, comfortable, and superbly located for exploring Austin and enjoying all the wonderful things and activities and people this city has to offer.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          This property - my house and Leon house - has great juju. Come check it out!
