Downtown house description

This spacious home has 4 bedrooms with a king bed in the master, 2 queen beds, twin over full bunk bed, 4 full baths, plus a new pull out sofa and a futon. It will comfortably accommodate 15 people. I have a couple air mattresses as well if needed.

Location, Location, Location!! This classic Austin bungalow has all the amenities and updates you want while still a short walk to Zilker Park, ACL, Ladybird/ Town Lake, Hike/Bike trails, restaurants, tennis courts, grocery, and more!

This spacious property has hardwood floors throughout and is ideal for entertaining large groups. It used to be a duplex. I remodeled it and opened it back up to be a single family house. The main house now has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with a huge open kitchen. The master bedroom is very roomy and has a king size bed with 1200 thread count sheets and large walk in closet. There is a 50 in. flat screen TV mounted on the wall. The bathroom has double vanities and a stand up shower with double shower heads. Water pressure is very strong. The secondary bedroom is also pretty large and has a ceiling fan and queen size bed. The bathroom has a tub with shower and black and white checkered tile. The third bedroom has a new twin over a full bunk bed plus a new queen size pull out sofa bed. It also has a newly remodeled bathroom. There is also a newly renovated garage apartment that has a queen size bed and futon. It has a 50 in. flat screen TV and full kitchen. In total there are 4 full bedrooms and 4 full baths so you have plenty of space for family and friends. I also have two queen size air mattresses if needed.

This property is ideal for ACL as it is a short walk to Zilker Park. There is a dedicated trail across the street that leads to Ladybird Lake where everybody goes jogging, walking, paddle boarding, and biking. Deep Eddy pool is also walking distance. It is a natural spring fed pool that is open year round. It is ideal for kids. Barton Springs is very close by as well. If downtown is more your speed, you are less than a 5 minute cab ride to all the hotspots in town. The airport is an easy 15 minute drive. The property is in downtown Austin so there will be some road noise from Mopac as well as a train that runs through the middle of downtown.

Guests have access to the full property. There is a large backyard with a wooden deck. You have downtown views from the back deck. There is plenty of parking as well. Cable/ internet and plenty of DVDs are available for your viewing pleasure.

I live near the property and am available via text/ cell. I'm happy to help with recommendations for things to do. I am here to help you enjoy your stay! Here is my guide of things to do nearby the house. http://bit.ly/1lMtn0h

                      You are just a few blocks to Ladybird Lake. Here you can go for a walk/ jog, bike, paddleboard, kayak, paddleboat, play tennis, or just take in the beautiful views. Downtown is just a few minutes away. Magnolia Cafe is amazing and open 24 hrs. It is only 4 blocks away. For some great Tex-Mex, Maudies is very close by as well. There is also a Randalls grocery store very close by as well as Whole Foods a mile away.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: I grew up in Dallas and moved to Austin in 1994 to attend the University of Texas. Immediately I fell in love with this amazing city. I couldn't get myself to leave. Once finished with college I obtained my real estate license and have been a real estate broker for 15 years now. I have two beautiful daughters and we love spending time on the lake and enjoying all that Austin has to offer!

                      Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
                      This awesome house is so close to everything! You are less than a mile to downtown, Zilker Park/ ACL, shopping, restaurants, swimming, and so much more.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      You are able to see the downtown skyline while relaxing on the back deck of the house. Also, there is a walking/ biking trail right across the street with direct access to Ladybird Lake. If you love to be outside and close to downtown then this is the house for you. It is only a few blocks to the Lake. I have three bicycles that are available to use.
