About the Property
Zilker 2 bed/1 bath, 840 SF. Back yard. 2 parking. Sleeps 4.
Situated in the heart of it all! This charming 2 bedroom, 1 bath home, with a private backyard and two off-street parking spaces, is just up the hill from Barton Springs Pool and Zilker Park. It's walkable to numerous restaurants and bars and close to restaurants, bars, grocery stores and entertainment venues. Everyone who has seen the home or lived here loves it. I furnished the property as if I might live there. I've been told it feels like it has that personal touch. I only do 30-day or more length rentals. Some people stay while they look for the perfect house, others visit Austin during the winters and some just come to check out our cool city for a few months. All in all, people don't want to leave. Three of my former tenants have loved it so much they've purchased homes in the neighborhood. I'm very thankful for all the wonderful people I've had the fortune of hosting! Please let me know if there's any additional information I can provide / anything I can help you with. Have a great day!

78704 is considered one of the most walkable zip codes in Austin and Zilker has the added bonus of being right next to Zilker Park and Barton Springs pool… two major Austin destinations.
This location is within walking distance to:
Zilker Park…. i.e. Austin City Music Festival, Blues on the Green, Austin's Ladybird Lake Hike & Bike Trail
Barton Springs - an Austin treasure / natural spring pool that's a great way to beat the heat or get some laps in. Barton Springs is considered a magical / holy place by many.
Eating establishments all along Barton Springs… restaurants such as Chuy's and Austin Java. During the summers, Shady Grove hosts 'Unplugged at the Grove' (different bands outdoors) on Thursdays.
While many will choose to hop in a car to head downtown, Whole Foods, for example, is completely within walking distance of this location. Whole Foods is a hot Austin destination is well. Not only is it a grocery store, but there are an abundance of ready-made and made-on-the-spot foods for different mealtimes and snacks. Can you say gelato? Ah….
Along S. Lamar you'll find:
Numerous restaurants, such as Uchi for sushi, Olivia's (which has made numerous local and national foodie lists) and the Black Sheep (also a great place for beer selections)
The Saxon Pub, a long-term, well-known establishment for music
Shopping of all kinds (home decor, clothing, some vintage.)
A local elementary school and local park basketball court, playground, and tennis courts
Venture out a bit further to S. 1st and S. Congress for more:
Restaurants , some examples are Guero's, Vespaio and S. Congress Cafe
Entertainment venues like the Continental Club and Continental Club Gallery
Austin's favorite coffee shop... Jo's
Like S. Lamar, shopping galore… Shopping such as:
Antiques, collectibles and vintage items at the internationally known (and packed to the gills) Uncommon Objects
Vintage and new clothing
Hotel San Jose sitting snack and sip area by the pool
Zilker has easy access to MoPac freeway and I35, Ben White (290/71) and 360/Bee Caves are a short distance from Zilker.
Another thing I love about this location is just walking through the neighborhood and viewing the established pecan and oak trees, old 40's bungalows and 50's small ranchers and new architecture that's popping up. It's a great place to walk your dog, for example.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I came to Austin to get my MBA at UT and, while I can't say I never left (I did - I was in Chicago and then Europe for three years), I am happy to say Austin has been home since 2004. I'm a Realtor so feel free to ask me any questions you have about our fair city and I'll do my best to answer.
Why the Owner Chose Zilker, Austin, TX, USA:
This was the first home I ever bought and the exact neighborhood I wanted. After work, I would peruse the streets regularly for new For Sale signs. I grabbed the property before it ever went on the market. Now that I'm a Realtor, I know how lucky I was!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, location, location!! Neighborhood market, Barton Springs, Zilker Park, Hike & Bike Trail, restaurants galore, entertainment, super markets and so on...
