The location of this home is most desirable for those who want to check out the heart of Austin.
This luxurious, 3700 sq ft., hacienda style retreat has all the comforts of home while located in one of the most well established neighborhoods... just a couple miles from downtown Austin and many fabulous Restaurants. Walk 6 blocks to the lake where Hula Hut and Cafe Mozart await you on the water. The Hike and Bike trail is about a 1/2 mile away and borders Zilker park where ACL is held. Just over 3 miles to the Austin Conventin Center with a direct bus route straight from the house. Grill out while enjoying the beautiful patio, gardens, pool, and hot tub. Or stay inside and cook in the large Chef's kitchen. This home is a warm and artful masterpiece with all the amenities, including wifi, cable, and much more!
There are four bedrooms with queen size beds. The master has a high end memory foam matress, the two guest rooms are box spring, pillow tops, and the 4th bed which is in a large game rooom, is a queen pull out couch, but is extremely comfortable (foam on wood-no old fashioned springs). This bed can be made up prior to your arrival, or we can leave it up so that you can play pingpong! The study could be used as a 5th bedroom if someone is willing to sleep on a air matress on the floor. We have extra mattresses and plenty of floor space and couches. Two large flat screen TV's with TiVo, and DVD players. Plenty of ipod docking stations to play your tunes.. Wifi is easily accessed through out the house and patio. There is a washer and dryer, ironing board, and blow dryer available for your use. There is no smoking allowed in the house and only on the patio if the doors are closed as the smoke can waft in.
We will provide nice, clean bed linens and towels. There is a coffee maker, coffee and filters will be left out for your use. We have a Thermodor oven/stove, microwave, blender, grinder, ice maker and two sinks in the kitchen. If you like a few items in the fridge when you arrive we can accomodate your needs!
If you have cars there are two parking spaces in the double wide driveway as well as plenty of additional parking on the street.There is a bus stop a few feet away with easy access to downtown, the convention center, UT, and many other places. just check the cap metro trip planner to plan your transportation. Cars to Go is another option for getting around town (it's helpful to preregister before your stay).
There is an elliptical trainer and bike trainer in the master bedroom for your use.
Though a custom architectual delight, you will always feel cozy in this 'story book style tudor, craftsmanesque, French country revival,' as described by one UT professor.
