Property description

Beautiful nearly-new vacation house located exactly 7.5 miles down Martin Luther King Blvd from the Capitol Building and all the downtown fun. Address is 5612 Nelson Oaks Drive, Austin TX is you want to map it.

This newer house has three bedrooms - each bedroom has a King Bed and a 38' LCD flat panel TV. Plus the separate front living room has two flip-flop sofas that can fold flat for extra people, and we've got an extra roll-away cot in the big master bathroom that can be put anywhere you want it.

The community has a gorgeous swimming pool, walking / biking paths, is located less than 2 miles from Walter Long Lake and the State of Texas Fair and Rodeo Grounds and Travis County Exposition Center. There's a pretty Hindu Temple being built right around the corner as well.

This house is in a really nice location, just 6 miles from the airport, 7 miles from downtown, and easy access to everything via the 183 freeway.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We travel to Austin on business several times a year, so we had a lovely house built so we have a nice place to stay when we're in town, or meeting one of our 4 adults children there.

Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
We chose this place for the great location... 6 miles in a taxi from the airport (we keep an old car in half of the garage), and just 7 miles to get downtown - we love downtown Austin!
