                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: Fred and Kellner Phillips live between Flagstaff Arizona and Austin Texas. Fred owns a environmental consulting firm and loves everything about the outdoors. Kellner is a Mom/housewife who is currently inspired by finding original works for the stage. They have two dogs, a St. Bernard and a Chihuahua!

                      Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
                      We bought this house because we have been coming to Austin for 10 years and love the place. We will be here half of the year and make a wonderful place for y'all to enjoy the rest of the year!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The folks that sold us this home did a meticulous job restoring the entire property/house--from the floors to the paint, fixtures and structure. It's on one of Austin's most cherished streets, Willow. A quiet neighborhood, awesome location, great neighbors and a gorgeous house, the choice was easy.
