Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I'm a school administrator who loves working with kids and teachers just about as much as I enjoy international travel!

Why the Owner Chose Other Austin Properties:
I bought this property to be close to downtown while also having lots of privacy and space to relax both indoors and out. The mature trees, large lot and historic home made it irresistible!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home has a warm character that you just don't get in modern homes or hotels. From the whirlpool bath and outdoor shower to the stereo speakers on the outdoor screened porch, there are lots of little touches that just make you feel right at home.
