Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Both my husband and I are researchers at UT. Our son rounds out the family, making us a quiet geeky, threesome.

Why the Owner Chose Balcones Park, Austin, TX, USA:
We bought our house just two and a half years ago. Seeking a quiet pleasant spot that was an easy jaunt to UT, and our son's school. We had long had our eyes on this neighborhood with its wooded feel and convenient location. When this home came on the market, we snapped it up.... thinking, sure there are a few minor renovations needed, no big deal. You know how that goes. The older sections of the house we took down to the studs. Windows were added. The newer section were updated and painted. It is not a big or flashy home but it is a light-filled comfortable home with room to spread out. The front and back yards are both set up for enjoying. The ten-foot-deep pool, shaded sitting areas and BBQ make it a great place for enjoying summer afternoons with friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beautiful neighborhood full of old oaks. One of Austin's best. Enjoy the quiet. Be anywhere in town within 15 minutes. No fighting the traffic. Ten minutes to downtown. Fifteen to Zilker. Same or less to the Arboretum or the Domain with all of its restaurants and shops. Less than 20 - 30 minutes to airport and F1 Track, depending on the time of day.
