North University house description

Within walking distance of UT and many great restaurants and cafes (including the Wheatsville Coop, Texas French Bread, Fino, Hopfields, Ruby’s BBQ, Trudy’s, and the Spiderhouse Café and Ballroom). Next door to the Shoal Creek hike & bike trail and the historic Hyde Park neighborhood.

This 1920s Arts and Crafts-style home is in beautiful condition, with original hardwood floors, formal living, formal dining, 3 fireplaces, and a large kitchen. Just off the kitchen is a great screened-in porch, complete with a stone fireplace & screened doors leading to a private backyard with built-in grill. The upstairs master suite features an en-suite bath and a large sitting area. Abundant windows suffuse the house with natural light.

The house is furnished with brand-new furniture and linens, all purchased from Room & Board. There is a king bed in each bedroom (so three king beds, total). There are also modern kitchen appliances and a brand-new washer-dryer, as well as a new flat-screen TV with cable and wireless Internet access. Well-suited for families, as well as groups visiting for SXSW, ACL, UT football, and Formula 1, this is the ideal house for cooking, dining and entertaining: the fully-equipped kitchen includes a new Calphalon cookware set, as well as bakeware, serveware, and a variety of cook’s tools/utensils. The large dining room seats six. The screened back porch and large backyard enable renters to take in the beautiful Austin weather.

Steps from the #1, 3, 5, and 22 bus lines. Less than 1 mile from Royal Stadium; less than 3 miles to the Convention Center. There is room for two cars in the driveway. Weekend on-street parking is also available.

Owners live in the neighborhood and can help you with any of your needs while you’re here.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We moved to Austin in 2010, and we now live in a house just down the street from this property, on Hemphill Park. Ben is originally from Pleasantville, a little town outside of New York City, and Colby is from Philadelphia.

              Why the Owner Chose North University:
              We bought this house as an investment, but also as a place for our friends and family to stay when they come to visit us (our growing family meant that a guest bedroom was increasingly hard to come by!).

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love our neighborhood because it's quiet and peaceful, filled with wonderful people, and also really close to the university and all of the attractions of downtown.
