Conveniently located in a peaceful and quiet neighborhood, just 5 minutes away from the historic, entertainment and business district, the town lake home offers easy access to festivals, activities and businesses. East Austin, our neighborhood, has just ranked at number 7 on Forbes’ hippest hipster neighborhood of America list.

Handicap accessibility: typically, Spanish style homes have one floor but asymmetrical level plans, creating one or two steps in between some of the quarters. Keep that in mind if you are bringing small children or mobility-challenged guests.
Outdoor space and parking: a wood pellet smoker-grill and an inviting patio dinning set provides the perfect opportunity for some Texas style BBQ or just some relaxation under the trees. Our lot is fenced and gated and you may park inside or on the street right in front of our property.
Neighborhood: enjoy Lady Bird Lake, formally known as Town Lake, just 2 blocks away from the house for a picnic, stroll, run, bike ride or fishing in its lush 14 miles trail. This trail has many different parks such as the festival beach park, Zilker park, Barton springs pool and auditorium shores to name a few. It also has access to other venues such as fiesta gardens, the long center for the performing arts, the Zilker botanical garden, the Umlauf sculpture garden and the Austin nature center. Live outdoor music concerts are abundant and this area, from classical to blues and everything in between.
Lady Bird Lake and its surroundings host a variety of festivals such as ACL, SXSW, bat, kite, reggae, Celtic, pecan street festivals and many more.
Shopping: with local groceries stores, farmer’s market, health food store such as whole foods just minutes away, you could very well take advantage of our well-equipped kitchen. If you are looking to enhance your wardrobe, just minutes away is the 2nd street district, where Texas warmth meets Austin cool.

Walk 6 blocks to Las Cazuelas, an authentic Mexican restaurant with the best al pastor tacos and torta milanesa in town.

Nightlife: the town lake home is a hop away from all that Austin has to offer for your nightlife.

And, of course, as Austin is the “live music capital of world,” there is plenty of live music!

Forbes Magazine ranked East Austin one of the America's Top Hipster Neighborhoods. East Austin earned the 7th place in this list due to its diversity in style and culture: a variety of food trucks and locally-owned bars and restaurants, walk ability score, saturation of coffee shops per capita, number and frequency of farmers market, and residents with artistic occupations.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Austin’s diversity in culture, style and outdoor activities makes this city the perfect home for this musician/teacher/engineer/nature lovers/international couple. We love here! Coming from Brazil and India, we couldn't ask for a better place!
Why the Owner Chose East Austin, Austin, TX, USA:
We simply love downtown Austin. You see, we fell in love with each other salsa dancing at many of Austin’s great live music locations. As often as we can, we visit Lady Bird Lake for a relaxing hike & bike outing, followed by an indulgent meal in one of downtown’s world famous local eateries. We have always wanted to take a vacation in our 'own' town, just by traveling a bit south. When this delightful and character filled property right by the lake became available, we jumped on it! The 'fight' was fierce as lots of potential buyers felt captivated by this property as well. The care that this home’s previous owners showered on it can be summarized by the shared quote from both buyer & seller’s real state agents after closing: “In our collective 40 years in real estate in Austin, we have not seen such a high demand property”. We are fortunate to call this our home away from home, and hope that the TOWN LAKE HOME will be the same for you.
