* THIS HOUSE IS FULL OF OLD AUSTIN CHARM *

This Home is located near Travis Heights in the 78704 district which is known as the coolest neighborhood in Austin. It's creative and serene, but just a quick walk or bike ride away from everything that Austin has to offer - the hike and bike trails, Zilker Park, Auditorium Shores, SoCo (South Congress) - full of unique Austin restaurants and shops - a foodies delight, Barton Springs Natural Spring fed pool, Restaurant Row on Barton Springs Blvd., The Long Center for the Performing Arts, the thriving South Lamar district and tons of great eats, cafes and boutiques. In about a 5 minute car ride, you can be right in the heart of downtown, which is just half a mile away. Also, you would be just a 2 minute walk from the Capital Metro and UT bus routes that can take you to wherever you want to go in and around Austin.

It is a private and secluded location in one of Austin's most unique neighborhoods, just west of I 35. The 3000+ sq ft home is fully furnished with wifi and cable, and flat screen tv.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1990

About: The owners of this historic Austin property are Texans who have called Austin home since 1975.

Why South River City, Austin, TX, USA:
It was a natural! It is old Austin charm, built in 1922, in an ideal location. Austin has changed of course, but it is fun to muse over the site of downtown from a '1922 vantage point.' There is an excellent view of the current downtown, which can be seen across the Colorado River that runs in front of the property, also known as Town Lake.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
After the initial appeal of the Victorian look of the property, the owners fell in love with the front porch and the spiral stairs on the back of the main house. A huge plus was separate dwellings that could be used for family gatherings. An oak tree on the back of the property---quite spectacular---is estimated to be 300 to 400 years old. The location seems private, remote, and isolated---however, it is within five minutes of downtown and the capitol, within 10 minutes to UT and St. Ed's, within walking distance of South Congress (SoCo) and Austin's trails as well as multiple venues on the lake, and within 10 minutes of the Formula 1 race track. It is truly at the heart of Austin!
