                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: Hi there, I live in Northern California but bought a beautiful 1930's Tudor style home in the heart of the best neighborhood in vibrant Austin TX because I can't get enough of it. The night life, outdoor activities, fun people and amazing weather are just some of the reasons I love this place. It's living in a beautiful tree lined neighborhood but being able to walk to cool restaurants and the best live music venue in all of Austin. Not to mention a stone's throw to downtown. I hope you learn to love Austin as much as I do.

                          Why the Owner Chose SoCo:
                          The pictures speak for themselves. This house is definitely a gem in the prestigious Travis Heights neighborhood.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The house is spacious, has big beautiful bedrooms, modern decor and has a great old vibe but is kept immaculately clean and presented with modern hip furnishings. The original beauty of the home has been maintained throughout. I also have bikes available for enjoying the fun outdoor lifestyle that locals can't get enough of.
