Hyde Park house description

House is 2 BR 1 BA mid-century modern home with fresh paint and newly-refinished hardwood floors throughout. Master bedroom has queen Simmons Beauty rest queen bed, second bed/office has brand new queen Ikea foam futon. Large newly-tiled bath. Kitchen open to living room and has a dishwasher, disposal, microwave, stove, bottom-freezer fridge, coffeemaker, juicer, toaster oven and all pots/pans/silverware/dishes/equipment you could need for your stay. Gas grill outside too.

To me, the best part of this house is the outdoor space: big shady front porch and a covered dining area overlooking the flower garden as well as a cozy fire pot. Festive lights hung along fence and fresh herbs in garden for cutting. If not in the mood to grill/cook - walk to LOTS of neighborhood restaurants/bars/coffee shops.

Fast wifi, flat screen TV with streaming Netflix and Blu-Ray DVD player. Washer and dryer. Private fenced driveway parking.

This central neighborhood is close to the Univ. of Texas campus so it's full of cool old coffee shops, bars and restaurants. Visit 43rd and Duval for Hyde Park Grill, Mothers Vegetarian, Quackenbush Bakery, Julios Tex-Mex or Asti Italian restaurant. 51st Street has Foreign and Domestic, Drink Well and Work Horse Pub. 51st also has some great food trailers like Melvins, Biscuits and Groovy and Taco Bout It. Be sure to check out some of the new local favorites too - Kome Sushi or House Pizza - just four blocks away on Airport.

House is only 3.5 miles away from downtown, and has a gated private parking space as well as easy street parking. A very regular city bus runs directly down Red River to both 6th street/downtown and UT campus - the stop is just a block away.

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: I've enjoyed staying in B&Bs, small inns and private homes for years so I know the advantages of living like a local. I'm excited to welcome guests to my favorite city in the US! This is my first listing on this website but I've rented out my house for SXSW independently in the past and I've lived in Austin for 20 years so ask me anything.

                      Why the Owner Chose Hyde Park:
                      The area can't be beat: close enough to drive downtown in 10 minutes but enough close by to actually get out of the car and WALK, which is a rare neighborhood in car-centric Austin.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Covered porches make the home a home. Flower garden with herbs and a fire pot provide peaceful space for evenings at home or really nice dinner parties.
