Foodie adventure? We are less than five blocks from the flagship Whole Foods. Cooking classes you can walk to, and more than 50 great restaurants within a 5-mile radius.

Sports enthusiast? We are blocks from our hike-and-bike trail that encircles Ladybird Lake. You can run, bike, kayak, canoe, or stand up paddleboard. In addition, we are just a few minutes from Lake Austin where you can rent a ski boat or pontoon, and spend the day waterskiing or wakeboarding.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We have two twin boys, and would love to share our home with you. We adore Austin, and have lived here for more than 10 years.

Why the Owner Chose Clarksville:
This house is a quiet urban retreat. Its proximity to downtown is ideal, without the traffic and noise of most central properties. If you're looking for an authentic Austin experience, our house is within walking distance to many great bars, restaurants, and live music venues. If you're looking for a family vacation, we have plenty of space and a safe, fenced-in yard. There is a park and neighborhood pool nearby, along with many fun activities for your kids.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home was once operated as a B&B. Though it still maintains its historical character (built in 1893), each room has its own en-suite bathroom. In addition, unlike many historical homes, we have 12-ft ceilings and lots of windows...providing lots of open space and natural light. Finally, there is plenty of off-street parking to accommodate large groups.
