North University house description

Located in central Austin - less than 3 miles from downtown, this home - built in the early 1900's - has a comforting old feel with great modern updates including a modern kitchen and master bath. The home has three bedrooms: a master bedroom with queen-size bed and master bath, two upstairs bedrooms each with full-size beds. There is a futon couch in a private office that converts to a full-size bed as well. The spacious and bright kitchen is the perfect social spot with an eat-in nook and an island to work at or congregate around. The home is a comfortable 2,400 square feet with a generous wrap-around porch overlooking a maintained landscape. Located 5 blocks north of the UT Campus, this home is convenient to downtown and all the places that make Austin unique.

                          This historic home is 5 blocks north of The University of Texas campus in central Austin - minutes from downtown by car or bus (CapMetro 5 or 7 Bus) and walking distance from great restaurants and hangouts - Asti, Hyde Park Grill, Spider House, Trudy's to name a few.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Why the Owner Chose North University:
                          Austin, TX is one of the most vibrant cities in the US to live in and our neighborhood, Hyde Park, allows us to easily take advantage of everything that is offered. We've been told that we have the 'best porch in Austin' and we agree. There are many evenings we've sat on the porch swing, under the fans, watching the kids play in the fenced in front yard and the neighborhood stroll by! You can hear music drifting up Waller Creek from 6th St. and imagine the night life going on downtown or, better yet, hop on the #7 bus and get right into the action!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          While staying at our home in Hyde Park you can choose to just blend in - the massive magnolia tree in the front yard gives you plenty of privacy or, say hello to our awesome neighbors who are always happy to extend a helping hand. You'll feel like you're in your own personal B&B with Carmen coming to straighten up while you are out!
