Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: We are a husband and wife team that loves old houses. Ann had purchased and was renovating this house with her father when she met Scott, who was just starting a renovation of his own historic home. So after the dust had settled on both houses, we had four children and in the process had to move to a larger space. We have lovingly maintained this house as a rental for several years, but are excited to furnish it and give it the extra attention it deserves as a short-term rental. Ann is a native Austinite and Scott has been here for almost 20 years, so feel free to ask us anything about Austin, and we will try our best to help!
Why the Owner Chose North University, Austin, TX, USA:
This property is conveniently located near the University of Texas, yet it is not heavily populated by undergraduate students. Instead the area is home to graduate students, young professionals, families, and senior citizens. The area has a wonderful historic feel with all the mature trees and World War II era houses, most of which have been restored and are prized by their owners. The area is very close to downtown and to so many other things.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can rent this home alone for 2-4 people, or can combine it with one or both of the studios to offer private quarters to 2 or 4 additional guests if you have a larger party.
