There are two units on the property, but guests have full access to the back yard. Townhouse is well sound-proofed, so you need not be concerned about noise made indoors. Owner lives in the second unit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We love to travel and especially love to snow ski.

Why the Owner Chose Zilker, Austin, TX, USA:
If you want to experience Austin like an Austinite this is the place for you. We are just two blocks from South Lamar which is the one of the main arteries of Austin. You are literally in walking distance of most of what you came to do in our amazing city. Two blocks away from public transportation, tons of local bars, restaurants, pharmacy, and of course live music!!

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We love this home because we are in the heart of the city and we get to come home to an amazing 250 ft deep landscaped yard. The view from the living room and the master bedroom makes coming home an extra special treat. We love to share our garden with friends and family and often have large family style dinners on the lawn- you are welcome to do the same. If you would like for us to arrange a catered dinner for you let us know.
