Car: Recommended

Our home is located in South Central Austin-less than half a mile

off two major highways (I35 and Ben White/290/71) and a direct

drive down scenic S. Congress 3.5 miles to Town Lake and downtown, passing numerous restaurants and music venues along the way. The neighborhood is only six years old and conveniently located to grocery stores, a liquor store, the famous Hill's Cafe is only 1/2 mile down the road!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Carey and Dave are well traveled and both work at a large hospital in downtown Austin. Carey is from Texas and has been in Austin since 1988, Dave is from Montana and relocated to Austin to be with Carey (and enjoy mountain biking year round!). If you would like any recommendations for outdoor activities, cycling trails, parks, etc they can help out. Two small, well-behaved dogs live in the other half of the duplex and will be seen in the gated off backyard when they choose to come out their doggie door. No barking!

Why the Owner Chose East Congress, Austin, TX, USA:
We chose this property six years ago when the house was built because we both love cycling and wanted to be able to ride our bikes to downtown and work--20 minute leisurely ride to Town Lake, 10-15 minutes to S. Congress restaurants, Continental Club, great coffee shops and Mexican food.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
We love the location of this home and the low upkeep. Tile floors throughout keep things clean and dog friendly, vaulted ceilings make the area feel larger. The master bedroom gets plenty of light, but has 2' wooden blinds and curtains if you would like to sleep late!
