Private Homes house description

Spacious, newer home in a small neighborhood surrounded by green belt, four miles from downtown, six miles from the airport. Very convenient location near major austin highways: ih35, 71/290 and 183, making the home very accessible to all austin fun, without the noise, for a relaxed, great night's sleep. This home is a haven as it is close to the action and you have the ability to sleep through the night, with no traffic din or downtown clamor, no pedestrians late at night, or the hustle and bustle of cars parking on narrow neighborhood streets. Peace and quiet when you're home, excitement when you seek it.
While sixth street, soco , sola, east austin, lady bird lake park and the freeways are all close, the wide neighborhood streets here are silent... You may even spot deer, and on occasions, in the day, a tenacious road runner.
This newer 1700 square foot, single story house with a fenced back yard has an extra-large master bedroom and two large bedrooms, the perfect base to chill in between exploring austin. Cozy and spacious, clean and fresh, the home has (except for the dining set) all brand new furniture including new mattresses, beddings and sheets.
Large, comfy towels are provided, also soaps, shampoo and conditioner.
Six can sleep very comfortably in the three bedrooms. Full length mirrors and ceiling fans are found in the bedrooms, each is tastefully appointed in warm earth tones with matching wooden armoires and side tables from bali. A queen size futon in the wide living room, converts into a comfortable bed for two more guests, if needed.
The single story open floor plan makes the home roomy and cozy at the same time, while guest can have individual down time in the generous bedrooms, the exposed living room in the middle of the home is the natural gathering place for a fun game of guestures or pictionary, or, to sit back and enjoy the latest cable program on the large flat screen tv. (popcorn is at hand)
Outside the back door a substantial, open, wooden deck greets guests for a breath of fresh air. A picnic table and bbq complete the outside sitting area.
The dining table sits six with an extension to include two more seats, for a family meal cooked in the fully equipped kitchen, takeaway deliciousness, or call-in dining. An info sheet with the nearest restaurants takeout and delivery services is on the tv stand. Info on nearby attractions and venues are also included on the list and can be emailed to you prior to arrival so you can click on handy links straight from your device.
The dining room windows faces west and offers spectacular sunset hues of oranges, blues, pinks and yellows above the tree tops across the street. Four miles away downtown austin pulses, inviting you to partake, while you take your time and plan your evening at your leisure.
Buses nearby run to downtown and ut, the cab ride to downtown.
Restaurants that open till 1am are less than a mile away while east austin is about two miles from the home. And if you feel like a short walk before or after a meal, the quiet residential streets are ideal. For a day time track, there's a green belt trail a few hundred yards from the house that loops the small neighborhood. For a substantial jog, the safe, wide streets offer miles of ground.
This brick exterior home with a budding native garden of agaves, succulents and cacti set in river rocks, is a warm, welcoming sight, your home away from home in austin, texas.
Come on by and feel at home.
Location description
Small, quiet neighborhood surrounded by a green belt, convenient haven-like location between airport and downtown and easily accessible from three of the four austin freeways. You are close to the action but away from the city noise.
To the north, supermarket heb, drugstore cvs and several restaurants are less than five minutes away off pleasant valley drive. Pass the stores is the colorado river known here as lady bird lake where there are walking trails and kayak and canoe rentals. Cross the river and you are in exciting and newly hip east austin. Head west from here and you are in downtown and sixth street
To go downtown from the house, head north on pleasant valley, cross the river and turn left on first street also called cesar chavez.
The riverside corridor, new home of music venues emos, historical blues venue antoines, and many more music scenes to come, is a mile away, off riverside drive, one block off pleasant valley.
To the south off ih35 six miles away is southpark meadows with over 90 stores, services, restaurants movie theaters and other entertainment options. Head east and loop back south on alvine de vane boulevard for a short cut to ih35
Polka, two step or walzt? Two thousand square feet of oak dance floor awaits at the midnight rodeo five minutes from the home; yeehaw!
