SoCo house description

If Austin is the epicenter of where it’s at in USA, then SoCo (South Congress) is the epicenter of where it’s at in Austin. Just one block from this mecca of eclectic shops, top-notch restaurants, and the quintessential Austin experience is your luxurious and quiet oasis. Your private entry to your suite is via a spacious deck shared with the onsite proprietors where you are welcome to read and relax under a lush canopy of ancient pecans. Once inside, you’ll be welcomed with amenities including chilled Topo Chico, Shiner bock and filtered water, coffee/tea bar, and thoughtful treats. Your suite envelops you in serene luxury only steps from the lively bustle of South Congress. Your hideaway features an adjustable Tempurpedic mattress, luxury linens, two robes, a microwave, coffee maker and mini-refrigerator, free wi-fi and flatscreen television. Walls of windows outfitted with built-in plantation shutters illuminate sumptuous design features including a sparkling Austrian crystal chandelier, exquisite Italian and Dutch antiques and art, and gorgeous mid-century modern furniture that grace the spacious suite. The stunning and singular bathroom is a dramatic sanctuary of Mexican and Italian tile and is ADA accessible with its walk-in shower equipped with hand held spray showerhead and built-in bench, grab rails, and elevated toilet. Ideal for an Austin holiday, business, or a festival-goers’ home base.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1997

                          About the owner: Actors, director, producer, and writers Barbara and Robert have made South Austin their home since 1995. In addition to their innumerable theatrical shenanigans, we enjoy partaking in the singular delights of South Congress, Barton Springs, the hike and bike trail, and welcoming friends and visitors to the glories of Austin.

                          Why the Owner Chose SoCo:
                          Within mere steps to practical and whimsical retailers, our home has been an idyllic place for our family. Walking to the locally owned grocer, barber, restauranteurs, and shop-keepers harken back to neighborly communities of days gone by; meanwhile were at the very center and soul of what makes Austin so unique and such a desired destination.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          There is simply no better location for entering fully into the Austin experience! South Congress is the number one 'must see' destination for Austin visitors and is ground zero for SXSW and 2 miles from Zilker park, home of Barton Springs and ACL Fest. Despite its unbeatable location one block off of South Congress, Eva Street Retreat is a quiet oasis amid huge shady trees and charming homes that evoke an old-timey, small-town feeling. Your guest parking pass, which comes with your rental for the duration of your stay, ensures you street parking within steps of your door. You'll find sanctuary from your Austin romps in the spacious and elegant suite designed by one of Austin's most noted and respected architects.
