                  Car: Recommended

                  Every home has a story and this homes story began in the 1940’s, when Austin had a population of just over 89,000 residents, and a few outlaws! At that time, Hancock Drive was called Baltimore Avenue, and Austin was a very different town. Today this beautiful home is surrounded by an endearing neighborhood called Rosedale. The iconic Fonda San Miguel restaurant, which is an award winning interior Mexican restaurant, is located right across the street. Also within walking distance is Billy's Beer & Burgers, Torchy's Tacos, Lucy’s Fried Chicken, Little Woodrow’s and Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon, with the infamous chicken shit bingo.

                  This home is just 5 miles from our dynamic Downtown Austin and all our amazing city has to offer, day and night. Get down there and check it out for yourself!

                  A few of my personal suggestions on your visit to Austin….

                  In the center of Downtown Austin is Lady Bird Lake, also known as Town Lake, and it’s the heart-beat of Austin. People come to walk, jog and enjoy what is known as the Hike & Bike trail and the new addition the Boardwalk, which now extends further East onto Lake Austin. Also located at Congress Ave and Town Lake is Auditorium Shores, where SXSW bands play! Don’t forget to see the famous Bats at the Congress & 1st street bridge, where one of the largest colonies of Mexican Brown Bats come out each night and eat up tons of insects. These bats almost look like smoke when they come out from their homes to feed at night.

                  Lake Austin is west of Downtown, and part of the Colorado River, known as Lady Bird Lake. Just West of Tom Miller Dam, which is upstream from Downtown about 2 miles, is where you can use watercraft and has boat rentals. It's a beautiful lake, truly it is a river, that rambles into the Texas Hill Country. That's where even more adventure’s begin….in the Texas Hill Country. There are several local small town communities like Fredericksburg, Kerrville, Hunt, Blanco, Wimberly and others, that are all surround by natural beauty, shops, wine tasting and antiquing. Great tourist locations full of interesting finds and fun unusual adventures!

                  Barton Springs, one of North America's largest spring fed limestone pools, and Zilker Park, are a must see and experience. Located off of Barton Springs Rd, Zilker Park is hosts the Trail of Lights around the holidays and Austin City Limits, the famous ACL Fest! Barton Springs Rd is also a great restaurant row, with several scrumptious restaurants like Chuy’s and Shady Grove. There is also a Food Trailer Park with The Mighty Cone….which is another Austin original! Don’t miss out!!!

                  SoCo is South Congress and very much a bohemian groove with very cool shops, vintage/resale shops, Tony Lomas Boots Store, Lucy in Disguise Costume Shop and lots of yummy restaurants. It also provides an incredible view of the Capitol at the end of Congress.

                  The “Domain.” which his north of Town. has all the best affluent shopping, and is a very cool experience. All your favorites are there; Tiffany’s, Free People, Apple, David Yurman, Macy’s, Neiman’s….you get the idea!!

                  Just east of Downtown, about 12-15 miles, is the Circuit of America’s, which hosts many concerts and the only F1 Race track in North America. Race grounds for the race fans and concert’s for the music enthusiast.

                  The University of Texas area is in the heart of Central Austin, and is a fantastic campus and worth an afternoon of discovery. The “Drag” is Guadalupe Street, which is very college campus stores and eateries. Just north of Campus is a neighborhood called Hyde Park which has some fantastic older homes from the turn of the Century.

                  Museums like the Blanton, LBJ Library, Austin Art Museums, The Thinkery, Laguna Gloria, Zilker Gardens, Bob Bullock and the University of Texas has so many cool things to discover.

                  Google these suggestions for more details, descriptions and ideas of what there is to see and do in Austin.

                  If you are bored in Austin, it is your own fault. There is always something to do. Go do it!! 


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: I discovered Austin in 1980 when I was working for Warner Brothers Records and fell in love with the towns beauty, weather and charm. In 2000 is became a licensed realtor and have now surpassed $200 million in sales so I've seen many homes and this one has always been special.

                  Why the Owner Chose Rosedale:
                  I was coming home from my own open house for a client and saw the for sale sign on the lawn and decide to give it a look. I loved the hardwood floors and it was a nice layout. The crazy thing was that is was painted bright PINK ! and the little one car garage out back was lime green. Story has it the owner wanted to make it an office and the City of Austin said 'no,' so he painted it PINK. So I bought it, and added the decks, the side trees and cobble stone walk ways and pavex driveway. Most recently I removed the old duck work and replaced with new and 18' of insulation. Also a sprinkler system, new Pella windows and fresh paint inside and out. I love this home and always enjoy the vibe it has. Sitting outside on that huge covered patio watching the world go by is one of my favorite places to be.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Huge covered porch, dog run, close to many restaurants and bars. Great neighborhood of early Austin.
