Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I love Austin! I have been here all my life and I am still always finding new exciting things to do!

Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
I fell in love in this house when I first saw it. It's the perfect getaway while still located with walking access to all that downtown Austin has to offer. It's also blocks from up and coming entertainment areas like Rainey Street and East 6th Street.
