Property description

Centrally located - sleek and modern, one bedroom / one bath apartment, sleeps 4. Situated at the back of a large corner lot just off Hemphill Park in one of Austin's most charming historic neighborhoods (Aldridge Place), this garage apartment sits opposite a newly remodeled historic house (built in 1917). In contrast to its lot mate this 1000 square foot apartment is very 'Cool' and modern, it has a modern, industrial, urban vibe - built in 2006 by one of Austin's premier architects. All living space is on the second floor with large windows that look out to pecan and lugustrum trees – offering privacy and feeling of being in a tree-house. There is a generously sized, bedroom area with a reading nook, a comfortable queen-sized bed, and plenty of drawers to keep your belongings. Behind a modern, concrete, '3/4 wall' there is a living room space with an American Leather, super comfy (seriously) sleeper sofa with a queen size gel mattress. The apartment is equipped with a full kitchen (includes dishrack, pots, pans, silverware, bowls, refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, teapot, toaster, oven, and gas stove). Enjoy a book in the comfy window seat, work or play using free wireless internet access or enjoy a movie or show on the HD TV through AT&T Uverse . An alarm system is also installed should you wish to use it. This is the perfect place to visit friends and relatives, explore the university, enjoy a festival, tour Austin, or just get away and relax for a weekend. We are located just one block off Guadalupe - AKA 'the Drag', but far enough away to find some peace and quiet. Walk or bike to the university, or to one of the nearby restaurants. The Capitol building and downtown Austin are less than 2 miles away. We are less than a mile from a shopping center that includes Central Market and we are very close to the hospital district (Seton, St. David's, Brackenridge, Austin Heart Hospital, and several doctor's offices). Dell Children's hospital is fairly close as well. Within walking distance you can enjoy a variety of North University or Hyde Park restaurants, bars, and shops. In addition to Central Market (less than a mile away), there is a charming neighborhood grocery store right around the corner - Wheatsville Coop (with all of your basics available plus lots of organic and healthy selections). We are in the process of restoring / gently remodeling the 1917 era house at the front of the lot, so the outside of the lot looks a little messy, but the inside of this garage apartment is beautiful!
