Car: Not Necessary

This property is located by the historic Texas Cemetary Park. This park is like no other with a pond, amazing landscaping and a true memorial to our Texas Heros. Jump on over to 12th Street and sample some Nationally Acclaimed Franklin BBQ, heralded by Bon Appetit as the 'best BBQ in the US'.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: This house is very sentimental for us, as we took a year and a half to restore this former abandoned house back to the architectual integrity that was the Victorian era. Each phase of the renovation made us fall more and more in love with this house and what it represented. We are very please to share this property with others so that they may also experience what we know... this is a very special house.

Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
Austin is such a dynamic, energetic and fun city, being downtown is where its at. The vibe one gets from being on the Eastside is truly unique. There is so much to do just within walking distance or a short drive. UT games, SXSW, Austin City Limits Festival, Zilker Park, 6th street, Congress Avenue, Town Lake, and so much more.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Texas State Cemetery is just a stone's throw away. This is not a traditional cemetary in any way. It is more a park with a pond, rolling hills and lush landscaping.
