About Liz

I'm an Architect and have lived in Austin for over 20 years. I just sold my house near S. Congress about a year ago and bought and renovated this mid-century modern home.

Liz purchased this house in 2012

Why Liz chose Zilker

Zilker/Barton Hills is a prime, close in location situated near all the greatest hotspots, yet quiet and secluded.

What makes this house unique

This is a A.D. Stenger designed home (think the Texas version of Eichler) with boatloads of character on a gorgeous lot and street.

Amazing! In the heart of the action, but a quiet and peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here for ACL. Liz has an amazing, artistic home. It is in a lovely and safe neighborhood very close to Zilker Park (about 10 min walk). Liz was great to work with since day 1. We moved our reservation without any hassle and to make sure we had a comfortable stay, she offered us an extra mattress and bedding for our group. She included a guide to Austin that was very helpful as well. We had a great time here and would definitely recommend the place to friends and family. THANK YOU, LIZ!

Ideal Austin location!

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully home in a gorgeous neighborhood is perfectly situated for quick access to Austin’s hot spots. Barton Springs and Zilker Park are walking distance as is the fantastic hike and bike trail along the Colorado River. Just down the street are great bars, restaurants and coffee shops along South Lamar and South Congress. It's also centrally located to all SXSW and ACL music, computer and film venues.

The house has comfortable and modern furnishings and Liz, the host, went out of her way to make sure the place was well stocked and ready for our stay.
