Property description

This house has a little of it all: location, charm, convenience, comfort.

If you're looking for location and convenience, we are 1 mile east of downtown and a 3 minute walk to the MLK light rail station. Whether driving, riding, cycling, or walking you are sure to get anywhere in central Austin quickly without having to fight traffic.

Built in late 2013 you will get both comfort and charm with this modern farmhouse. The well spaced, 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home has a master suite downstairs and 3 bedrooms upstairs. The large living room windows and french doors opening on to the back patio give plenty of light to this open floor plan. There is also plenty of seating for dining or relaxing in the living room. If you are looking for space outdoors, the house sits on over .5 acres and is home to a majestic, 250+ yr old live oak tree.

If you are a family traveling with small children, a crib, high chair, etc are all available. We can work with you to provide any additional items that would make your trip easier with children, such as strollers, carseats, babysitting references and more.

Car: Recommended

East Austin is a thriving and diverse part of town, increasingly the place to be in central Austin. In addition to being home to some of the best Tex-Mex dining in the city -- Nuevo Leon, Vivo, and El Chile are three favorites, there are many restaurants, coffee houses and bars on the east side. The hot spots are on Manor Road, East 5th-East 7th, and, more recently, the Mueller Development. Eastside Pies, Salvage Vanguard Theatre, Bennu Coffee and Contigo are highlights.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Our dream for this house started back in 2011 when we purchased the 1 acre lot. Two years later construction was completed and we moved in late 2013. We're a family with 2 kiddos and like to maintain an open door policy. Whether that's additional people living with us, family members in town, friends/friends family, or out of town guests, we love sharing our home with others.

Why the Owner Chose McKinley Heights:
We love East Austin because it is a thriving and diverse part of town, increasingly the place to be in near downtown. In addition to being home to some of the best Tex-Mex dining in the city -- Nuevo Leon, Licha's Cantina, and El Chile are three favorites-- there are many restaurants, coffee houses and bars on the east side. The hot spots are on Manor Road, East 5th-East 7th, and, more recently, the Mueller Development. Eastside Pies, Salvage Vanguard Theatre, Bennu Coffee, Haymaker and Contigo are highlights.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The entire East side of our first floor features large windows and glass french doors, allowing for lots of natural light in both the living and dining areas. This openness and abundance of light sets the tone for our entire house, which is clean, simple and airy. Self-proclaimed anti-clutter enthusiasts, we keep the house clean and kitsch-free while not skimping on comfort and style.
