                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2010

                              About the owner: I love vintage homes and antiques! I live in a beautiful home in England built in 1853 so I have a thing for charming vintage homes. While living in Belgium and Luxembourg for several years, I enjoyed walking everywhere - restaurants, shops, bars and outdoor markets. This beautiful house combines vintage charm with the convenience of being able to walk to so many of Austin's best restaurants and shops.

                              Why the Owner Chose Austin Heights:
                              Unique charming cottage in the heart of everything Austin has to offer! When I bought the cottage in 2010, it had been largely untouched since it was built in 1936. I have a lot of respect for its original character, so while I was upgrading it, it was important to me to retain and enhance a lot of its original charm including hard wood floors, tile, feature window in the dining room, built-in niches and beautiful interior trim around windows and the vintage six-panel doors complete with original glass doorknobs. I simply fell in love with this charming little cottage and its fantastic location.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
