Bouldin house description

Located in the heart of Bouldin Creek 1 block away from South First Street and 4 blocks from South Congress. Clean, uncluttered, sublime historical house with tons of character.

This house is the only remaining Bouldin family house built by Colonel Bouldin for his grandson in 1895 and has historical status. All of the ceilings and floors are the original wood. Every room has a ceiling fan. There is central air and heat. 2 queen sized beds plus one double sleeper sofa that pulls out. 2 fenced-in yards with a backyard seating area and an amazing front porch. Art work by Farley Bookout a local rock poster artist. There is also an ADT security system if you would like to arm the house when you leave.

1 block away from :
Bouldin Creek Cafe
El Chile
La Mexicana

I live in the house next door and I'm available if anything is needed.
I also have two old Schwinn bicycles that can be borrowed. I'm an avid cyclist and can give you numerous routes in and around Austin to ride, long or short.

The neighborhood is very eclectic. There are modern homes with dirt alleys. Old bungalos with chicken coops. There's a castle a block away. Also, tons of Live Oaks and wild peacocks roaming around near Green Pastures restaurant off of Live Oak. Very quiet neighborhood until SXSW rolls around!

1 block from major bus lines on S First
15-20 minutes from the airport
15.4 miles to the F1 race course.

Barton Springs Pool and Zilker Park (ACL) are 2 miles away Butler Park and Auditorium Shores (Fun Fun Fun Fest) 1 mile away. You really won't need a car at all once you are here!
