Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: John and I are a photographer and artist respectively. We have lived all over the United States, run foundations and newspapers and a bookstore in coastal Maine.

Why the Owner Chose Brentwood:
Nestled in a sweet 1950s era neighborhood where people walk their dogs and chat while babies sleep in strollers, this sweet house is full of charm and decorated with the eye of an artist. Paintings and photographs by the owners and their friends adorn the walls and a 2011 renovation created a gourmet kitchen and tiled walk in shower in a second bathroom. If you want, you can step outside and cut some herbs from the herb garden, sit on the porch, or take a bike ride, on the supplied women's bike, to the local coffee shop.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
You will enjoy the vibrant color scheme designed to match paintings and an old Indian rug from New Mexico which hangs on the living room wall. Complimentary bottle of wine and fresh flowers greet you and our house manager lives down the street should you have any questions. Austin is a fabulous place to visit, listen to music, hike, hang out in Zilker Park or our neighborhood Brentwood park and pool. Come and stay awhile - Read our books, swing on the swing, Enjoy yourselves
