Property description

Enjoy Austin like a true local in this spacious and funky 3 bedroom bungalow. Located on a cute and quiet street, this 2000 sq. ft. home is nestled in the heart of Travis Heights (just blocks from buzzing South Congress Ave), within walking distance to many popular hot-spots.

With hardwood floors, abundant natural light, and an open and airy feel, this home is hard to beat. A fully-equipped kitchen is ready to satisfy your home-feeding needs, so you might find it difficult to leave the house! Three delicious bedrooms and two spacious bathrooms ensure you will stay clean and relaxed. Two dining areas beckon for meals, games, or work groups, with a capacity for a dinner party for 10. Go ahead and get as dirty as you want, because the washer and dryer is at your disposal as well. This newly-remodeled home will provide you with everything you need for a comfortable and unique visit to the Music Capitol of the World.

The master suite has a brand-spankin-new king-sized bed, full-sized bathroom and a large porch and seating area overlooking the backyard. The two other bedrooms come equipped with brand-new beds as well--a queen-sized bed, two twin beds (or a full--you choose!), and all rooms have plenty of closet space. The living room and TV area is ready with a large flat-screen, AppleTV, and WiFi.

After a full day of sight-seeing and exploring or music-watching and celebrating, you will be delighted to return to this cozy casa with all the comforts of home.

Owner info

About the owner: I came to the University of Texas 40 years ago, fell in love with this town and never left. I've lived in Travis Heights for the majority of those 40 years and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. I'm a professional private chef and my husband owns a build and design company. We support local businesses and are big proponents of the local food movement. We invite you to enjoy our wonderful city in the comfort of a beautiful home. Come and stay here...you may never want to leave!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a very special home in the heart of the best neighborhood in Austin. The property has a fantastic floor plan conducive to socializing, working, and relaxing, and an awesome upstairs patio that makes you feel like you're in a tree house. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly, so if you are sitting on the front porch having a coffee or cocktail, be sure to wave hello to the neighbors out for a stroll!
