Hyde Park house description

The Hyde Park Lodge is conveniently located in Hyde Park, near the University of Texas. Walk to football games, enjoy exploring a fantastic historic neighborhood, and relax in the comfort of a private and gated luxury home with all of the amenities you would expect to make your stay fun and memorable.

Built in 2003, this home has it all. The exterior features a beautiful courtyard with two 100 year old towering oak trees. The outdoor sitting area has a wood burning fireplace that is perfect for relaxing under the stars. The property is fully gated and fenced for the ultimate in privacy including a 2 car garage. . Once you enter the lodge you are greeted with everything you need for an incredible stay. The living room has a 60 inch flat screen tv and gas fireplace. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and custom cherry cabinetry. The four bedrooms are located upstairs. You will find a California king bed with 1200 thread count sheets in the master bedroom. There is also a private balcony overlooking the courtyard. The master bath will take your breath away. Upon entering you have 15 ft vaulted ceilings with two skylights, black granite counters with double vanities, oversize jacuzzi tub, stand up shower with mosaic tile inlays, and more room than you know what to do with. The three secondary bedrooms have a queen bed, bunk beds, and day bed with trundle bed underneath. There is a jack and jill bathroom with double vanities that accommodates these rooms. A washer/dryer is also located upstairs.

The lodge is located in the historic Hyde Park neighborhood. You have everything at your fingertips. Central Market and Central Park are just a few blocks away. Here you will find one of the best grocery stores in town, plenty of shopping, a park with playground for the kids, hike/bike trail, and an abundance of restaurants. There are four parks within walking distance.

Grab lunch at Hyde Park Bar and Grill. Their double battered french fries are some of the best I have ever eaten. Trudys Tex- Mex is an Austin icon and has amazing Mexican martinis, but you can only drink two before they cut you off. Mothers is one of the best vegetarian restaurants in town. All are less than 10 blocks away.

The University of Texas is walking distance as well. Take in a Longhorn football game, tour the UT Tower, or take a stroll through the campus and visit the fountain.

Guadalupe street, or 'the drag' , has lots of fun shopping and great hole in the wall restaurants. Don't miss Paul Qui's super popular East Side King restaurant.

Downtown is just 5-7 minutes away and offers more dining options and nightlife. Mix it up with the college kids on 6th Street and ride the mechanical bull, or for a more upscale experience visit the Warehouse District.

Whatever you decide to do I can assure you that you are staying in one of the best homes in Central Austin. Enjoy!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: I grew up in Dallas and moved to Austin in 1994 to attend UT. Immediately I fell in love with this amazing city. I never left. 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 Hyde Park:
                  I lived in this beautiful house for 5 years before I decided to move out to Lake Austin. I could not part with it so I decided to keep it as an investment property. I have always considered moving back into it if and when i decide to move back to town. My favorite features of the house are the oversize master bathroom with the vaulted ceilings, skylights, and jacuzzi tub, the master bedroom with walls of windows overlooking the beautiful courtyard with the two giant oaks, and the outdoor sitting area with the fireplace. We used to relax under the stars with good friends and good wine or have the guys over for poker night and smoke cigars. Lots of great memories and hopefully you will make more too!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The house is very kid friendly and very private. It is fully gated so you can enjoy your time with family and friends without interruption. If you want to get out and explore the area then everything is right outside your door!
