              Car: Not Necessary

              Located one block from South Congress in the lively SoCo district filled with fabulous restaurants, shops and live music. The Continental Club, Austin's premier club for live music, is just one mile from house. Looking to jog, bike or walk by the water? Miles of hike and bike trails at Lady Bird Lake can be accessed from the Congress Avenue bridge just 1.5 miles away. Along the trail you'll also find the Texas Rowing Center where you can rent canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddling boards. If you enjoy outdoor swimming, the natural spring Big Stacy Pool is about a half mile away and open to the public seven days a week (it's also FREE). For those that like running on a track, St. Edward's University is just a block away and has a nice running track. Need wine or groceries? Big H-E-B grocery store is a three-minute walk away.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: My husband and I fell in love with Austin the day we came to visit our daughter who was just starting a family. After 25 years of living in Montana where nine months of winter was the norm, we were ready for some warmer weather. When we saw people jogging in shorts and t-shirts in the middle of January, we knew Austin was the place for us. Our architect son designed and built our home in 2009. Beautiful soft modern architecture and an open floor plan make this home truly a joy to live in, or a great place for travelers to enjoy all the fun Austin offers.

              Why the Owner Chose SoCo:
              So close to everything but also offers privacy as you enjoy the relaxing in the screened porch or barbecuing on the back patio. And don't worry if you run out of any necessary food or other items, the large HEB grocery store is just one block away - so convenient. If you decide to go car-less, the city bus is less than a block away and will take you directly into downtown in just 10 minutes.
