About the owner: I live in the home with my Husband Bruce & our spoiled Border Collie/Lab Mix and Tuxedo Cat. We have been married for (12) year and have no children. My husband is in Sales and I work as a Commercial Real Estate Broker. We are originally from Ohio, I have lived in Austin since '1985' and Bruce moved here in '2000', when we married. We absolutely love Austin! It has a little of everything. Personally, I chose this home for the proximity to downtown, Walking distance to Austin's main park system; Zilker Park, live music, cool restaurants/coffee shops/shopping etc. Too me I live in the coolest zip code in the entire City. As they say, '78704' is not a zipcode but a lifestyle. You will definitely see a little of everything in this area...very ECLECTIC! :)
Why the Owner Chose Zilker: My property offers every thing for someone who wants to truly Tour Austin simply because its located south central, and within (15) minutes of everything fun and interesting.

Since the Music component is so Popular, you can hear bands play from my outdoor patio/pool area! It is also walking distance to Austin's coolest restaurants, pubs and coffee shops. The house was remodeled in 2009 and is very picturesque. It's entertainment friendly and just scenic and beautiful!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Walking Distance to all of Austin's Major Events, SXSW & Austin City Limits Music Festivals. Home of our new Racetrack, Formula 1.
