Home description:
Adorable bungalow with new modern Zgallerie furnishings, sleeps up to 6 (Bedroom 1 with queen bed, Bedroom 2 with two twin beds, and queen sleeper sofa in living area). Charming home has been updated throughout, but still has the original hardwood flooring, interior doors and door knobs. High ceilings and efficient layout makes home seem much larger than the stated 950 square feet.

The well-appointed kitchen includes refrigerator, freezer with ice maker, gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, Keurig coffee maker with an assortment of K-Cups. Other items are available upon request.

WIFI and cable are provided through Uverse (the only provider with the Texas Longhorn football games!). Classic board games are available such as Connect 4, Apples to Apples and SORRY for that family/friend quality time together as well as an assortment of books, movies and puzzles suitable for a range of ages.

Nice back yard for entertaining, with large deck with table and chairs. There is also a backyard game of “Washers” to keep you entertained.

Non aggressive pets are welcome. No smoking on the property. Please be respectful of neighbors; many have lived on this street for 30+ years.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I was transferred to Austin by my employer in 2001, and quickly fell in love with this city. Throughout my career, I have focused on the real estate industry and my love for buying, selling, and renovating properties has continued in the Austin area (I didn't actually renovate this house though). My husband and I own several traditional rental properties, but this was our first vacation or short term rental - we love this little house and are so excited about getting to share it with others. We have two teens at Westwood High School - so we currently live in NW Austin where they attend school. This city is full of hidden gems - I know you will enjoy your stay!

Why the Owner Chose East Downtown:
We have been watching the East side of Austin transition for several years, and have been interested in buying property here. I love the many unique bars and restaurants that have made this area their home, including Hillside Pharmacy, Blue Delia, East Side Pies and the very popular Franklin's BBQ. This location provides easy access to downtown, UT campus, Zilker Park - but also the entire city via I-35. It still has a cool authentic vive to it, with a mix of original residents, extensively renovated homes and some tear downs to make way for large custom homes. This is currently a second home for us, but we intend to move here permanently when the teens leave for college.
