About Lis Riley

Adventurous, fun loving, environmentally conscious family that enjoys sharing their home to fund further adventure (and property taxes). :)

Lis Riley purchased this house in 2014

Why Lis Riley chose Austin

Very spacious with a functional floor plan offering a quite courtyard in the center of the house to read and relax, or gather and socialize with a group. Accessible to hike and bike trail, green belt and downtown by bike. Very sought after neighborhood, plenty of privacy but still central to all the action.

What makes this house unique

Unique courtyard setting. Two living areas allowing for privacy and solitude on one side of the house, with activity on the other.

Very nice owners. Clean and spacious home with relaxing open courtyard. Great location for ACL. Not to mention we really enjoyed the mega purified drinking water!

Great south Austin location.

  • 5 of 5

We've been visiting Austin on a regular basis for several years and are thrilled to have found a true home away from home. Clean, comfortable and close to many activities that we enjoy. Nice kitchen, a courtyard for relaxing in the sun (we're from Michigan!), and lots of room to entertain. I definitely recommend.
