                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1955

                          About the owner: I was born and raised in Austin and could not find a better place to live. Laura (my wife) is from Chiapas Mexico and is the one I give credit to giving the house all its unique colorful character and rustic feel. We live very close to the property and are always available to make you feel at home 100% of the time.

                          Why the Owner Chose SoCo:
                          I have been to many places and even have lived a few years abroad. But I always come back to Austin and have yet to find anywhere else I would rather be. Austin is very unique in all that it has to offer - great universities, world class eclectic restaurants, and some of the top musicians in the world. I could not think of a better place to live and stay.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Our house has been in the same family since 1955. We recently did a full remodel and have kept the feel of a cozy charming cottage while opening up the kitchen and living room including a vaulted ceiling with skylights which lets all the natural light in. We also have a private driveway which keeps you from parking on the street. Casita Lunita cannot be in a better location, only 2 blks from South Congress Ave. and 3 blocks from Stacey park which includes a jogging trail, swimming pool, and tennis courts.
