                          There's a lovely community park with a big swimming pool, play ground, tot lot, and walking trails. There is a gorgeous new Hindu temple being built around the corner, and you are 1 mile from the rodeo grounds and exposition center.

                          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!
