SoCo house description

Walk 100 yards to South Congress. This beautiful South Congress area home was originally built in 1907 and remodeled in 2011. It has 4 bedrooms - 2 kings (1 king bed is a tempurpedic, the other is a California King) and 2 queens with 2 bathrooms. With 2500+ square feet, it has an open floor plan conducive to entertaining with an updated kitchen that includes granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. New furnishings and a fully stocked kitchen along with the original refurbished wide plank pine floors throughout the house offer a comfortable place to stay as you enjoy Austin. Three large flat screen televisions, DVD players, and iPod connections are available for use. Large oaks in the front and a furnished raised deck with bbq grill in the rear offer a private space to entertain and enjoy the outdoors.

Convenience is a key word for this home. It is located 2 blocks from South Congress Avenue and less than 1 mile from 6th Street which offers some of the finest restaurants in the city along with unique shopping (no chain stores) and live music. A bus stop is 2 blocks away, so is a bike rental vending machine (pay by the hour). This home has off street parking for 3 cars + 2 on the curb (5 total), a simple walk out of the door can place the visitor into the lifestyle of Austin without the hassle of driving and parking (very easy walk to Tom's coffee, Gueros Cantina, Whahoo Fish Taco, walk to the grocery store, walk to live music at the Continental Club, walk to shopping). Leave your car in the driveway all weekend.

This is a perfect place for experiencing Austin and all of its' activities.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      Why the Owner Chose SoCo:
                      The Drake home has an open floor plan that is great for entertaining. The living ans kitchen area is open and makes for a wonderful place to spend time together as a group. The deck outside is large and will accommodate many. The Webber grill outside is also a great touch. The kitchen and appliances are new and clean and allow for eating in, if you choose. The 4 beds are large, comfortable and the linens are high thread count and not cheap. This is a wonderful home with many amenities. The master bedroom and bathroom are large. The master bathroom has a HUGE shower with double shower heads. A wonderful upgrade.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Location. Incredible proximity to South Congress' live music, shops, restaurants, cafes, food trailers, Zilker Park, Barton Springs, 6th Street. Literally so close to everything in Austin many walk or ride a bike EVERYWHERE in Austin. Take a cab from the airport and save some money.
