Located in one of Austin's oldest, historic neighborhoods, close to downtown. Many large, heritage trees and beautiful homes. Stacy Park is 2 blocks away with Blunn Creek greenbelt, swimming pools, tennis courts, and nature trails. It is a lovely walk through the neighborhood to Congress Avenue for great restaurants, shops. Very close to historic Austin music venues as well as new clubs.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I moved to Austin in 2012. The previous 30+ years were spent in Houston working as marketing director for such companies as Aetna, Prudential, and Rice University. Professionally, Houston was a wonderful place for me. Personally, Austin has been spectacular. Wish I had gotten here a bit sooner but thrilled to be here now! I think most people who visit Austin for a few days will be drawn to the same alluring, delightful and eclectic people and places that pulled my heartstrings to this crazy town.

Why the Owner Chose South River City, Austin, TX, USA:
Home was built in 1936. We purchased it from the original owners and have renovated and restored this very special property in one of Austin's best neighborhoods

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Location- Charm- Comfort- Quiet- Convenient- Peaceful- Unique.
