Relax or enjoy Austin's sights from this unique setting: a beautifully restored Craftsman- style house built in 1911 and registered as an Austin Historical Landmark. It sits on a beautifully landscaped one-half acre lot in the quiet Hyde Park area of the city just north of the University of Texas campus. Completely renovated, yet conserving the graceful ambience of the original home, Harris Park Guest House is furnished with an eclectic mix of antiques and mid-twentieth century modern furniture. The fully equipped kitchen and formal dining room are ideal for cooking, dining, even entertaining.
Located at the corner of Harris Park Avenue and 32nd Street, just 1/2 mile west of Interstate 35, it is easy to reach and serves as a great base for exploring Austin's many attractions: 1.5 miles from the State Capitol, 1.2 miles from the Elizabet Ney Museum, 5 miles from Barton Springs, 2 miles from Sixth Street, 1.5 miles from the Blanton Museum. A host of wonderful restaurants are within walking distance or an easy drive. Not into sightseeing? If you want relaxation, then this is your place! The house offers lots of comfortable, cozy nooks to curl up with a good book, to watch TV, or to listen to the stereo. Three paved patios offer great outdoor spots for sitting, relaxing, reading, or watching passersby. On football weekends, walk to the stadium in minutes (3/4 mile away), or sit on the front porch and watch an endless stream of people in burnt orange walk by.
Do your kids live in Austin? This is the perfect spot! Visit as long as you like, but have a place all your own, and still big enough to have the whole family over for dinner. The perfect nest for 'snowbirds' during winter! Whatever brings you to Austin, Harris Park Guest House offers a great alternative to hotel accommodations at very reasonable rates!

Why the Owner Chose Central Austin, Austin, TX, USA:
Austin is like no other place on earth! It has everything: culture, arts, scenery, sports, good climate (well, pretty good in summer, great in winter!), restaurants, and fun places to walk. Harris Park Guest House is right in the middle of it all; just minutes from UT, downtown, the Blanton Gallery, Town Lake, and Lake Austin. Great parks, shopping and eating all within an easy walk.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with this house the first time we saw it. Built in 1911, an Austin historic landmark home, it has been completely renovated, and offers modern comfort and convenience in a turn of the century setting. The half-acre grounds have three stone patios with seating for relaxation and outside dining. The kitchen and dining room offer ideal facilities for entertaining and meal preparation. The neighborhood is fantastic for walking. All in all, Harris Park Guest House is perfect as a base from which to explore Austin, or just as a place to hang out and relax!
