                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2013

                              About the owner: I am a local Austin Artist, Photographer and Videographer. I often work with musicians in the area to help them promote their music. I've lived in the area for over 20 years and having traveled extensively worldwide, I still find excitement and joy living in Austin and truly enjoy sharing the best my city has to offer with others.

                              Why the Owner Chose Soco:
                              Having spent 5 years looking for a property with a great location, I was lucky to find this new build in the heart of one of the best places to enjoy Austin. With all the amenities I want in a home, including peace and quiet, yet a short walk or drive to where all the action is.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                              Location! Clean, brand new home with a gorgeous view of downtown Austin, especially at night. A terrace to sit and sip a glass of wine on a summer evening with bats from Congress avenue bridge flying past or fireworks from Zilker Park lighting up the sky on the 4th. A gas fireplace in winter to curl up next to and watch a movie or read a book. Walk to an amazing dinner, live music, a cocktail...then walk home.
