About the Property

Centrally located charming one bedroom / one bath apartment with office space nestled in the heart of one of Austin's most treasured neighborhoods -- historic Aldridge Place.

Located 5 houses from 'The Drag' (Guadalupe Street) and only a few minutes walk to numerous restaurants, grocery stores, University of Texas, and Central Market organic grocery & park. We are less than a mile from the hospital district (Austin Heart, Seton, St. David’s, University Medical/Brackenridge, and Dell Children’s). We are less than 2 miles from the State Capital and Downtown. Slightly over 4 miles to Zilker Park where Barton Springs and all of the major festivals occur.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: The property owner has lived all over the world. He enjoys people of every color and ethnicity. He settled in Austin 18 years ago and knows the city very well. He has been known to have a glass of wine and share his local knowledge on occasion.

Why the Owner Chose North University, Austin, TX, USA:
This property is in Aldridge Place between the University of Texas and Hyde Park. It was Austin's first planned development with many of the homes designated as historic. One of the most notable features is Adams / Hemphill Park that runs through it's center. The history of Adams-Hemphill Park dates to 1912, when Lewis Hancock (1856-1920) donated more than two acres along Hemphill Creek for use as a park. Hancock, who served as mayor of Austin from 1895-1897, was an influential figure at the turn of the twentieth century. Hancock donated the land for Hemphill Park when he began selling tracts of land in the Aldridge Place neighborhood in 1912.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This apartment is not only perfect for travelers looking to stay in a unique area of central Austin, but can also accommodate visiting academics or those that are temporarily working in Austin and need a large work area. It has been completely updated and has the original hardwood floors. The apartment has central A/C & Heat. This neighborhood enclave is unique in Austin and a pleasure to explore while strolling the park and shaded streets. Restaurants, shops, grocery stores, and bus stop are just steps away... while being not too close at the same time. We are located 5 houses from Guadalupe Street.
