Nestled in the heart of central Austin, the Hancock Modern provides the perfect location for all of your Austin activities. The Modern is a relaxing alternative for those seeking a more enlightened stay: urban living with a breath of fresh air.

The Modern features four bedrooms, two baths, and is beautifully landscaped for indoor / outdoor living. This urban retreat was designer-refreshed in 2010 featuring all new appliances and fine furnishings.

This beautiful home is situated in Allandale in the Shoal Creek area, a tranquil neighborhood with quiet, tree-lined streets.

Spend your afternoons relaxing on the deck, or take a walk in the nearby 30-acre park. The Park has a huge pond, swimming pool with lap lanes, diving boards, and a children's wading pool, lighted tennis courts, basketball court, children's playground, and baseball field.

You are about a mile from Austin's best grocery stores (Whole Foods and Central Market), a short drive to the University of Texas and to any downtown location. You are four blocks from the 30 acre Northwest Park with pool, tennis courts, and children's playground and across the street from the Shoal Creek hike and bike trail leading to Lady Bird Lake.

The Hancock Modern vacation rental features stained concrete floors, and the home has been completely remodeled with new appliances.

The Hancock Modern short term rental can be found in the quiet, tree-lined streets of Austin's Shoal Creek neighborhood, just 10 minutes from Downtown, the Med Center, and the University of Texas.

Get away from the hustle and bustle in the Hancock Modern vacation rental, located in the tranquility of historic Allandale. Austin attractions abound, eat out at a dozen restaurants within a mile, or stay in shape on the 8 mile jogging path just one block away.

Stroll in the park or dine at the numerous nearby restaurants and cafes.

WHY DID WE CHOOSE THE ALLANDALE NEIGHBORHOOD?

Allandale is a highly desirable neighborhood in Austin due to its central proximity to Downtown, the University, the Arboretum, and the Domain. We love that there are so many families in Allandale as well as a 30+ acre park complete with pond, tennis courts, and swimming pool. You'll enjoy taking long walks and bird watching--there are more trees in Allandale than anywhere. We love Allandale--we live there ourselves! It's the perfect location and a great Austin experience.

Very cool, convenient, centrally located neighborhood with lots of character and conveniences: The Alamo Drafthouse (Austin's most popular movie theater), Bartlett's, HopDoddy, The Goodnight Bar and Bowling, Suzi's Chinese, Upper Crust Bakery, Yoga Yoga, Sun Harvest, Zen Sushi, Starbuck's, Billy's Burgers, Amy's Ice Cream, Blue Star Cafeteria, Satay Thai, and Alborz Persian are all within 5 minutes.

The Burnet Road "BuRo" area is one of the up & coming places to be, and Allandale is a highly desirable neighborhood due to its central proximity to Downtown, the University, the Arboretum/Domain. There are a dozen plus restaurants & cafes, the 30 acre park & pool, & the 8-mile hike & bike path. We've built up an excellent 5-star reputation with our Hancock Guest Cottages over the past few years--feel free to Google us--or please check out our Yelp and TripAdvisor reviews! www.HancockCottages.com

Austin is the center of the Lone Star State and is the gateway to the Texas Hill Country and the Highland Lakes. As the state capital and home to the University of Texas, the city supports a politically charged and culturally rich environment. Austin is hip and high-tech and is lucky to have a huge creative population of musicians, artists, and filmmakers. Austinites live for the outdoors as the city boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year. Nature trails and parks create an oasis in the heart of the city. Town Lake is bordered by 10 miles of hike-and-bike trails where joggers, walkers and cyclists exercise every day. You can take a thirty minute drive to cut your own lavender, bargain for antiques, or visit one of the many Texas wineries and breweries. There are also twenty state parks within a one hour drive.

Why Allandale, Austin, TX, USA:
The first time we saw the great lines of this 1960's rancher we fell in love . . . it had shag carpeting, popcorn ceilings, and wood paneling, but through the labor of love we were able to modernize it to today's standards. You'll enjoy all the light from the three sets of sliding glass doors as well as the uniquely angled ceilings.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Allandale is a highly desirable neighborhood in Austin due to its central proximity to Downtown, the University, the Arboretum, and the Domain. We love that there are so many families in Allandale as well as a 30+ acre park complete with pond, tennis courts, and swimming pool.
