Property description

Directly adjacent to the University of Texas and downtown, this cottage sits in the coveted, quiet and safe Pemberton Heights. On the National Register of Historic Places, Pemberton Heights was named by Town & Country Magazine as a USA Top 25 Platinum Address.

It's not just Austin's priciest real estate area that makes a stay at this cottage an outstanding value. Luxury comfort details include a spacious 1350 square feet, Beautyrest mattresses, Restoration Hardware and Frette cotton linens, Le Creuset cookware, solid wood plantation shutters in every room, fenced and gated yard, 2 car garage, Jonathan Adler and custom furniture, and more.

In addition to the University of Texas and downtown, you can walk to Seton and Heart Hospitals, Austin culinary institution 'Kerbey Lane Cafe' (open 24/7), East Side King by Paul Qui (winner of America's Top Chef), Pasta & Co. (Austin's only fresh pasta maker), Teo's Gelato and Italian coffee (selected #1 Gelato in the USA), Pease Park, grocery stores, salons, clothiers, shops, dry cleaners, and banks.

*Linens are 100% cotton, Frette, Ralph Lauren, Restoration Hardware.
*Dresden chandelier. Venetian mirror. Eastlake and Jonathan Adler furniture.
*A spacious 1350 square feet. Beautiful wood plantation shutters and original hardwood floors throughout.
*Stainless steel gas appliances. Le Creuset cookware.
*Gated yard for privacy and off street parking.
*2 Car Garage
*Front loading washer and dryer.
*Free WiFi and standard cable TV.

Uniqueness: Without a single apartment complex or condominium high rise, and no bars selling alcohol, a prized detail about this urban neighborhood is its freedom from the development and explosive population growth found in other areas of central Austin.

Real Estate Value and Exemplary Schools: The most valued real estate often includes top schools and this cottage is no different. This property has access to Austin's top public schools including Casis Elementary, O'Henry Middle School and Austin High School.

Come and enjoy Austin's choicest area with furnishings that are anything but typical for a rental property at this price.

Please note: The entirety of the "Service Fee" on your online quote applies ONLY IF you pay for your stay through this website. Also, a short term rental accepts stays of less than 30 nights. Stays at this property are 30 nights or longer. This property is not a short term rental.

Also, due to endless drought and yet another round of huge wildfires in Central Texas, trees only, not the yard, are watered at this property.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: In 1994 I bought my first historical home in Austin and have enjoyed being a landlord for over ten years. All four of my properties are in neighborhoods on the National Register of Historic Places. Separately, having used an imperfect diet instead of chemotherapy to reverse my own disabling disease, my other career objective is to use over two decades as a Registered Dietitian to bring the healing power of food to others. As featured speaker for radio and TV, medical professionals, universities and corporations, I have authored a book that sells in twelve countries and is a best seller at Amazon. A documentary of my recovery, “The Incurables”, also airs internationally on Veria TV.

Why the Owner Chose Old West Austin, Austin, TX, USA:
This property is a good fit for those who understand the value of premium real estate at a reasonable price. It's a good fit for someone who places more value on craftsmanship, books and lovely parks than on corporate housing. Walk to the University of Texas, Downtown, Seton and Heart Hospitals. Or walk to Austin's most popular restaurants including the iconic Original Kerbey Lane Cafe (open 24 hours every day), East Side King by Paul Qui (winner of America's Top Chef), Pasta & Co. (Austin's only fresh pasta manufacturer), Teo's Gelato and Italian Coffee (voted Top Ten in the USA), Austin Pizza (voted #1), Olive & June (Austin's youngest five star chef), the Santa Rita Cantina (voted #1 for salsa). You can also walk to Austin's oldest and most tranquil park, Pease Park, and the Hike and Bike Trail. Walk to the flagship Central Market, banks, clothiers, flower shops, dry cleaners.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Prestigious real estate at a reasonable price. Spaciousness for a historical two bedroom cottage with 1350 square feet and high comfort. 2 car garage and gated, fenced yard. Immediate proximity to UT's cultural and sports events & downtown. Solid wood plantation shutters and original hardwood floors throughout. National Register Historic status. Access to Austin's best public schools including Casis Elementary, O Henry Middle School, Austin High. Quiet and lower population density given there are no apartment complexes nor condominiums in this neighborhood. Five minutes to downtown and flagships for Whole Foods Market and Central Market.
