Zilker apartment description

Go to sleep with the light of the moon and awaken to the changing sky in a Studio Apartment with your own private entrance... this space has an abundance of streaming light from the NorthWest, with a spacious bathroom of many, polished natural surfaces. The apartment adjoins an artist's home but is separate and private. There is a swinging bench for two under the Bali Porch over-hang where you can relax outside with the colours, sounds and textures of a private backyard. The street of the house is a short one, which at one end meets Kinney Avenue with the local, well-known coffee house, Flipnotics, to the North and on the south end meets Lamar Boulevard with an outgoing expansion of Austin eateries, food trailers & entrepreneurial-ism, all within walking distance.
One mile from swimming at Barton Springs Pool and 10 minutes to your seat at the Paramount Theatre--we like to say,
'We are 5 minutes from 'everything Austin' ...'
--one block off South Lamar, you can walk to most interests.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  The Sun Room Apartment is in south central Austin just 1 mile from swimming in the legendary healing waters of Barton Springs Pool or kayaking and canoeing on Town Lake. We are 5 minutes from 'everything Austin' with Restaurant Row just a short walk away --Austin's signature Tex-Mex restaurant, the fabulous Chuy's, is located there and behind it is Casa de Luz for gourmet vegetarian and macro diets-- and just beyond that is the 'mothership' home-base of Whole Foods Market, which was founded right here. The night life is in 4 different areas and they are all quite close --the closest being about a mile and a half-- and all are within walking distance. We can tell you the best clubs to hit if you are looking to experience why we are called 'The Live Music Capital of The World' and point you to the best of the local musicians. The 'bat bridge' on Congress Ave for observing the Mexican fruit bats swarming to eat 200,000 lbs of insects every night in the Spring and Summer is under 2 miles as is our State Capitol building made of local pink granite at 3/4 scale of the nation's capitol in DC. There are many natural wonders around the area like, Hamilton Pool, Devil's Backbone, and Willy's territory up in Spicewood Springs for swimming in the Perdernales River, on which LBJ had his spread and is now a tourist destination site, on the way to the German-style town & village of Fredricksburg. It is a 15 minutes drive to the airport.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: I am an artist and educator... and a mother. I grew up in Caracas, Venezuela and came to the USA to study art, graduating from RISD for my MFA and before that an undergraduate program (BFA) from Maine College of Art (MECA) and SACI in Firenze, Italy. Now, I draw and teach here in Austin.

                  Why the Owner Chose Zilker:
                  ...because this is a perfect location in our little city--just 5 minutes from 'everything Austin' we are very near the downtown but tucked away in a safe quiet neighborhood, a close walk to the amazing healing waters for swimming in Barton Springs, kayaking or canoeing on Town Lake or walking the Green Belt all within a mile.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Beautiful backyard, airy open spaces, comfy bed, wonderful large spa-like bathroom and just steps away from great restaurants and nature...
