                  Plum Cottage is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just a short walk or drive away to South Austin's vibrant newest restaurants, bars and shops. Famous Maria's Taco Express is just a block away for Live Sunday Gospel music and killer breakfast tacos or just down the street you can wander in to Gourdough's Public House Pub with their unique savory doughnut sandwiches. Up the road just a short jaunt you can mosey in to the world famous Broken Spoke honky tonk for some real live Texas swing music and dance the night away on their sawdust sprinkled dance floor. Bring your boots and cowboy hat! Amy's Ice Cream, Phil's Ice House, Kerbey Lane Cafe and much much more are all less than 1/2 mile away from your home away from home.

                  Other attractions: Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, Zilker Hike and Bike Trail, South Congress Shopping district and Downtown Austin are all within a 5-10 minute drive away.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: We are Kerry and Carole Price and have been hosting out of town guests in Austin for over three years. Plum Cottage is our newest furnished rental home. We have been married for over 25 years and have raised both of our children within a mile of this home and still live in the neighborhood. Kerry still has a day job in the packaging business and loves wooden boats. Carole manages the vacation rental properties and is a community volunteer with Hospice Austin. We both found our way to Austin: Kerry from Minnesota and Carole from Glasgow Scotland. We met in South Austin in the mid 80's and have never left.

                  Why the Owner Chose Zilker:
                  We bought this property several years ago and kept it as a long term rental property until converting it into a Short Term Furnished Vacation Rental opening in February of 2013. To make this conversion we have remolded starting at the wall studs and added a room to make a virtually new home. The original home was built around 1950 and still has much of its old classic charm including the cut glass door handles and solid wood interior paneled doors and baseboards.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Location, location, location. This section of Austin is one of the most sought after areas for people coming to Austin to live or play. Conveniently located near to most of Austin's major - and some off beat- attractions. Here you will find real Austinites both young and old.
