About the Property

3 bedrooms, 2 baths! Modern kitchen, king bed, beautiful back deck.

Welcome to The Westrock! This 1800 sq ft 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is in a tucked away in the Barton Hills neighborhood that offers a perfect family abode that is within 3 miles of everything that Austin has to offer, including downtown, Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, University of Texas and it's also within about a quarter mile of The Barton Creek Greenbelt! Oh, and The Broken Spoke is literally two blocks away! Bring your dancin boots!

In the house you have a king bed in the master bedroom, a king in the second bedroom and two twins in the third. So you can comfortably sleep 6 people in beds. In the living room we have a queen sized fold out couch in case you do end up with 7 or even 8 people.

There are two full bathrooms, each with a shower/tub combo. The kitchen is gorgeous and open to living room, which get's a ton of sunlight. Enjoy the 46' TV in the living room that is connected with the AT&T Uverse U300 Cable package - so you can watch all your favorite shows when you're not dancing at 'the spoke.' This includes The Longhorn Network. HOWEVER: as of Feb 2015 we will have Google Fiber internet and TV!

78704ever: Come hang out in the most sought after zip code in Austin, 78704: 'It's more than a zip code, it's a way of life!'

The Broken Spoke: World famous honkey tonk dance hall, literally two blocks away! So bring your boots and get scootin!

So much good food around here, as well. Dozens of great restaurants within walking distance.

You're also within a couple blocks of an entrance to the Barton Creek Greenbelt - which is one of the natural crown jewels of Austin. You can literally hike for miles in the middle of town without even knowing you're in a city. Beautiful stuff and well worth packing a lunch and taking a nice long hike!

Public transport is easy and we have a private charter vehicle available as well.

Car: Not Necessary

'The Westrock' is located just south of downtown Austin, in the Barton Hills neighborhood (one of Austin's finest!). The Barton Creek Greenbelt is just a couple block away and Zilker Park is about a mile and half away, all through the neighborhood!

Also, don't forget about Austin's most famous honkey tonk dance club: The Broken Spoke - less than two blocks away. You can even pull that off in your boots, I reckon!

Some nearby eats: Kerbey Lane Cafe, Torchy's Tacos, Papalote Tacos, Thundercloud Subs, Phoenicia Bakery and Deli, and dozens more.

Nearby drinks: Gordoughs Public House, Baker St Pub, Park Sports Bar, Pluckers.

Public transport is easy if you won't be having a car - there's bus stops just out on Lamar. Easy access.

VacationCake Rentals

Year Purchased: 2013

About: I'm a born and raised Austinite and actually i've lived more on less in this neighborhood my whole life! I love the Zilker and Barton Hills area. There's really no where else i'd rather call home. Currently I live right around the corner from this property.

Why South Lamar, Austin, TX, USA:
This is a fabulous three bedroom home in one of Austin's premier neighborhoods, Barton Hills. The location is perfect for exploring town and still having a quiet place to go relax and regroup.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We had a huge deck built in the back yard! Plus you can walk to lots of great eats. But the best thing: Zilker Park and the Barton Creek Greenbelt is a short distance away. Downtown is only 3 miles. New restaurants are opening within just a few blocks seemingly every day!
