          Across the Colorado River from Downtown Austin lies the hip area of South Congress (SOCO) Austin. This district is home to an ecletic mix of artists, musicians, restaurants and retailers. There is something for everyone and all can be reached by walking, cycling or even pedicab!


          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: Mara: I am originally from South Africa and I love to travel for work and pleasure but I always return to Austin. I know how to find the secrets of a new city and I take a lot of pride in showing off Austin! Berit and Gerald: We are a Norwegian/Texas couple who love the artistic culture and natural beauty of Austin. We live next door to the house and are helping Mara with the rental process.

          Why the Owner Chose Travis Heights:
          This beautiful little Travis Heights house sits on a limestone hill overlooking the Colorado River and downtown Austin. The neighborhood is beautiful with a mix of huge estates and smaller properties. It is originally from the 1880's, and is very walkable. Gerald's great grandpa used to ride his horse here before cars were invented! It is a little bohemian and has the friendliest neighbors around!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Walk or cycle to just about any attraction you could want in Austin. Half a mile to Congress Avenue and all it has to offer. Right across the street from the boardwalk and lake trail that take you to Barton Springs, Zilker and down town!
