Zilker condo description

The fun loving Heart House will certainly make you smile! You will sleep soundly in the king pillow-top mattress and enjoy the 3rd story view from the floor to ceiling windows in the bedroom and from the patio off the sliding glass door. The living room features a vaulted ceiling with clerestory windows which provide wonderful natural lighting. The patio is always a popular hangout spot for your morning coffee, dinner, or a late night cocktail. The Heart House has a fully furnished kitchen to cook in if you so choose. The entry is only a 1/2 flight of stairs from the parking spot right in front of this 6 unit building built into a hill in Barton Hills. Have fun finding the hearts in all the art on the walls!

Barton Springs Pool in Zilker Park: We are located approx. two blocks from the single best swimming pool in the universe, Barton Springs. Located in the heart of Zilker Park, use our beach towels and enjoy the spring fed, chlorine-free 68 degree waters of this over 1/8 mile long watering hole. Also enjoy the hike and bike trail, boating on the river, frisbee golf, the Nature Center, the Botanical Gardens, the playground and the train for the kids or a picnic on the great lawn. Zilker Park is Austin's crown jewel, and certainly one of the most fantastic outdoor recreational areas on the planet!

Downtown Austin!: The legendary 6th Street is where you can find great live music every night of the week in dozens of bars. Don't bother driving down there, parking is a problem and it's only a $10 cab fare. Also, don't miss out on the sights, sounds and eats on South Congress, South 1st Street, 2nd Street, 4th Street and then West 6th Street!

Alamo Drafthouse and The Highball: See a movie while eating dinner or just having a drink at Austin's favorite theater, the Alamo Drafthouse, or enjoy dinner, drinks, live music, dancing or karaoke at The Highball, both just over a mile from this condo.
