Property description

Come visit the 'live music capital of the world' for Formula One, SXSW, ACL Fest, Austin City Limits, Texas Longhorns, Fun Fun Fun Fest, or just a relaxing get-away weekend.

This wonderful 1940s bungalow comfortably sleeps 5 and is located at the edge of historic Clarksville, in the beautiful, majestic neighborhood of Tarrytown.

We are centrally located, minutes from the hustle and bustle of Downtown, SoCo, South Lamar, Town Lake, Zilker Park yet located in a quiet residential area.

Close to all the action and yet an easy escape from the crowds. If this sounds ideal then you are in for a treat.

Within walking distance to several parks and swimming pools, local coffee and bike shops, casual and fine dining, local grocery stores.

As an Interior Designer and consultant for the past 20+ years I have designed and managed projects all over the globe, mostly for Fortune 500 companies. Now a full - time mom working from home, the Hills Studio is not only my "home office", it's my personal retreat. It's also my husband's favorite place to steal a nap or ensure a good night's sleep.

Because this is where I go to get work done and also to escape my family, the house is kept impeccably tidy and organized. As both a designer and a mom, achieving order over chaos in our home is a constant struggle, so the Hills Studio is my respite!

Inside the Studio you will find some or all of the following: something tasty simmering on the stove or in the oven, lots of cold drinks, 3 ways to make coffee, snacks both healthy and not, all the makings for a "ready to go" meal in the pantry or freezer. Loads of books, art supplies, paper for sketching, toys for all ages, music, etc.

Basically all of our favorite things.

The well stocked kitchen (including decent knives and cookware) awaits your perfect farmer's market finds as well!

These days the Hills Studio has evolved into a 'home away from home' -where friends and family from all over the world come for a comfortable stay and discover central Texas from a local's perspective. Our guests stay just a few days or as long as they want to.

Our main house is next door to the Studio, so whenever possible we will meet you upon arrival, help you get acquainted with the property, answer any questions and make sure you have everything you need. We are available 24/7 during your stay with us.

Please no smoking.

Please respect our wonderful neighbors, no loud music or after hour parties, etc. This is a family-focused, quiet residential area.

OL 2013 062941

We look forward to meeting you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: New places and a love for travel have always been a way of life for me. Because of my Dad's career we moved around quite a bit when I was a kid. By the time I was 12 we had lived in 4 states and 7 cities. My father is from the great state of Maine. The youngest of 13 children, he is a life long Eagle Scout, former captain in the Marine Corps and a Company Man. The first person in his family to graduate from college, he worked 37 years as an executive for Shell Oil Company. My mother was born and raised in post-war Japan. Just 17 when she left her home she moved to the US where she worked as a nanny and a florist and went to night school to learn english. Besides being an artist and a talented cook, she was a natural hostess and most of all a passionate home-maker. The love I have for other cultures and the basic art of living comes directly from my parents. Now firmly rooted in Austin since 2008, I live happily with my husband and our twin boys and we have no plans of moving anytime soon. We still love to travel but stay pretty busy at home too. Looking after 4 year old twins and keeping up with all the new happenings around town is a full time job in itself. My Life Motto: Wabi Sabi

Why the Owner Chose Tarrytown:
Location, location, location. Austin is simply one of the best cities in the world.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Live like a Local. Discover the Austin vibe for the first time or return to relax and reconnect. Our house is your house.
