Swede Hill house description

This 2 bedroom/ 1 bath home is a converted courthouse that is over 100 years old and was moved from Lincoln, Texas to Austin's Eastside about 10 years ago. Simple, chic, central, and completely comfortable for up to 8 people, this home boasts 13 foot ceilings, an amazing claw foot tub and a huge wrap around porch.

Great for entertaining, this open concept space has a fully functional kitchen, two bedrooms one with a king, the other with a queen sized bed, a queen sized sofa bed in the living room, and twin sized couch that sleeps one plus one double sized aero bed. Enjoy a huge bathroom with washer and dryer & fabulous linens and pillows.

Our Eastside property is only blocks away from some of the hippest new restaurants, bars, foodtrucks, coffee shops and retail stores in Austin. A hop, skip and a jump from Downtown, 6th street, the Eastside farmers market, University of Texas, and the State Capital, this house is in an amazingly central location and conveniently located near the new Metro Rail.

We are walking distance from all Eastside Austin SXSW shows and close proximity to Formula One. The wrap around porch is great for spending time outdoors grilling on our outdoor grill or hanging by the firepit.

This amazing property is a great place to spend the week for SXSW or for family & friend get together. Austin summers are unbeatable and this quaint and unique home is a great way to get away from it all.
