Urban Homestead boasts historic Texas architecture and chic fine-furnishings. The owner, a photographer, has bestowed the home with a gorgeous, artistic, and unique style. Once you've stepped beyond the large front porch and through the front door, you'll be blown away by this beautifully renovated home with 12 foot ceilings.

In the main house there are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. The main bathroom is large, with a separate shower and jetted bathtub. There is also a very small utility half bath in the laundry room.

The large living room features a built in office/desk area, large flat screen TV and record player. The living room and kitchen open out onto a cedar screened in porch - which feels like an additional living area. Enjoy the Texas breeze without the Texas bugs!

Out back is a separate studio bedroom with a full bed, as well as a newly added full bathroom! The private, romantic studio features huge vaulted ceilings with incredible windows, and a stunning antique chandelier.

This home offers the best of South Austin, in style and location. You're equally close here to South Congress and South Lamar, and it's just a quick drive down South 1st street to downtown.

*There are also 4 cruiser bikes at the property you are welcome to use**

Easy access to/from the airport, and is close to the grocery store as well as many bars and restaurants.

Reviewer Comments:

My family and I had a great stay at The Urban Homestead in South Austin! It was a fabulous place for us to crash each night after having fun in Austin. Good, central location, very clean and stocked with every necessity,and impeccably renovated and decorated! Being able to stay in a farmhouse built in 1918 in a residential neighborhood made us feel like residents, not tourists, which is exactly the way we like it! We loved the farmhouse so much we dreamed of living in it😄.

Really enjoyed our stay here. It was very close to everywhere that we wanted to visit and had a perfect vibe. Property was exactly as advertised and was very well maintained. Record player was the touch that took it from great to awesome.

Reviewer Comments:

I chose this cozy cottage because it was close to my daughter's wedding venue. But fell inlove with its charm. It has that funky artsy vibe Austin is famous for but with all the modern conveniences. Close to Everywhere and our host was accommodating and responsive. You cannot go wrong with this chill pad, my only regret was the rain kept us from using the bikes.

Reviewer Comments:

My husband and I decided to go south for the month of February and chose Austin. The Urban Homestead could not have been a better pick for the value and location. We were able to have family and friends visit. The ensuite in the back of the house was perfect for the couples who visited. The minimalist aspects of the house made maintaining a clean house throughout the month so easy. Emerson Properties were very good and responded to questions and needs. The neighborhood was quiet. The neighbors were friendly. Many places close to the house were great (Lenoir, Summer Moon Coffee, Seventh Flag Coffee, Once Over Coffee, Boulder Creek Cafe, Elizabeth Cafe, ABGB). Walking to Congress/Downtown was 1.5 miles but an enjoyable walk. Everyone who came to the house loved it. My only complaint was the first 24 hours the house looked dark and dingy to us. Cleaning the front porch, screened porch, and windows made all the differences in the world. Did not mind it since we were staying so long.
