Barton Heights house description

Welcome to The Westrock! The latest VacationCake rental home! This 1800 sq ft 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is in a beautifully tucked away neighborhood that offers a perfect family abode that is within 3 miles of everything that Austin has to offer, including downtown, Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, University of Texas and it's also within about 200 yards of The Barton Creek Greenbelt! Oh, and The Broken Spoke is literally two blocks away! Bring your dancin boots!

In the house you have a king bed in the master bedroom, a queen in the second bedroom and two twins in the third. So you can comfortably sleep 6 people in beds. In the living room we have a queen sized fold out couch in case you do end up with 7 or even 8 people.

There are two full bathrooms, each with a shower/tub combo. The kitchen is gorgeous and open to living room, which get's a ton of sunlight. Enjoy the 46' TV in the living room that is connected with the AT&T Uverse U300 Cable package - so you can watch all your favorite shows when you're not dancing at 'the spoke.'

78704ever: Come hang out in the most sought after zip code in Austin, 78704: 'It's more than a zip code, it's a way of life!'

The Broken Spoke: World famous honkey tonk dance hall, literally two blocks away! So bring your boots and get scootin!

So much good food around here, as well. Dozens of great restaurants within walking distance.

You're also within a couple blocks of an entrance to the Barton Creek Greenbelt - which is one of the natural crown jewels of Austin. You can literally hike for miles in the middle of town without even knowing you're in a city. Beautiful stuff and well worth packing a lunch and taking a nice long hike!

                              The Westrock is located just south of downtown Austin, in the Barton Hills neighborhood (one of Austin's finest!). The Barton Creek Greenbelt is just a couple block away and Zilker Park is about a mile and half away, all through the neighborhood!

                              Also, don't forget about Austin's most famous honkey tonk dance club: The Broken Spoke - less than two blocks away. You can even pull that off in your boots, I reckon!

                              Some nearby eats: Kerbey Lane Cafe, Torchy's Tacos, Papalote Tacos, Thundercloud Subs, Phoenicia Bakery and Deli, and dozens more.

                              Nearby drinks: Gordoughs Public House, Baker St Pub.

                              About: When we had a chance to buy this house, I simply had to figure out a way to get it done. I am half of VacationCake Rentals and am thrilled to have this property in our stable

                              Why Barton Heights:
                              This is a fabulous three bedroom home in one of Austin's premier neighborhoods, Barton Hills.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              We just had a huge deck built in the back yard! Plus you can walk to lots of great eats. But the best thing: Zilker Park and the Barton Creek Greenbelt is a short distance away.
