Car: Recommended

Bouldin Creek, located on the other side of the lake from downtown Austin. The historic nature of the neighborhood and eccentricity of its residents mean it will always be a little bit different. For those who doubt the 'weirdness' of South Austin, look no further.

Our home is on 3/4 of an acre surrounded by live oak trees, with two side wooded areas. The neighbors are a few lots over from the house, they will not be right next to you. The house is also up from the street.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1950

About the owner: My name is Alan and I am a true Austinite. Artist, photographer and of course a musician, (classical violin and guitar) I attended parochial school here in Austin, Then moved on to the School of my Grandfather,and Father. The University of Texas here in Austin Tx.

Why the Owner Chose Bouldin, Austin, TX, USA:
A family owned property from one of Austins first settling families. You can't get any closer to the middle of it all. Any and all convention or music. Next to down town. Next to ACL fest. Next to Auditorium Shores. Next to Town Lake(Lady Bird Lake). Next to the Long Center, the Palmer Center, Zilker park, Congress Ave. That is all less than a mile away. Sixth ST, the Capitol, the Convention Center, the Warehouse district, Whole Foods (HQ and store) The list goes on and on, and all just one mile away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property backs up to the Green belt with hiking trails and a dry (sometimes wet) creek, . Less than a mile and walk-able to an abundance of restaurants all with outdoor patios and some with live music. The famous Saxon Pub is just a mile away with great live music every single night ( Always a good place to spot celebrities ). The world famous Continental Club also a mile away. But wait! There's more. The mother ship of over priced veggies, Whole Foods is only one mile away.
