                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: I grew up in Amarillo and moved to Austin in 1990 to begin practicing law. I enjoy spending time at Lady Bird Lake and experiencing Austin's wonderful collection of great local restaurants and cuisine.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bouldin:
                  The Treetop Guesthouse is located in a beautiful, friendly and very popular South Central Austin neighborhood. The close-in location showcases the best of Austin: Lady Bird Lake, Barton Springs, Zilker Park, South Congress and much more. Very near downtown, SOCO, SOLA, SOFI, and top rated local restaurants, such as Barley Swine, Vespaio, Olivia, Uchi and Lenoir.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This property has mature, 50 foot live oak trees throughout the yard which provide a lovely landscape and surround the residence and the Treetop Guesthouse.
