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. Largely the proximity to many major Austin events, South by Southwest & Austin City Limits, the well renowned Music Festivals that bring people from all over the Country! The property is in walking distance to water activities, hiking, biking, jogging, paddle boarding, swimming, lake activities, cool restaurants and pubs, frisbee golf, pitch & putt, putt putt, music & food festivals at Auditorium Shores (water front) monthly, within miles from our cool downtown, several walking distance parks are leash free pet friendly and even many restaurant with patio's. 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. Home of 'Lance Armstrong', therefore many Athletic Events. It's just located in the Mecca of surrounding Downtown. I would be safe in saying that my particular neighborhood is located in the best area of Austin if you are a Music, Restaurant, Pub, Outdoor Enthusiast. It's all within walking distance or if you prefer to drive all within a a couple of miles. I just can't say enough about the Zilker Neighborhood and every thing that you could possibly think to do is right here!
