About the property

4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath House With Covered Porch And Large Back Yard.

Great house for families. Completely renovated in 2013 from the ground up. Situated on beautiful, large lot in the heart of centrally located Hyde Park. 4 large bedrooms (one used as a game room). Master bedroom has a king size organic latex bed and attached master bath oasis. 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed, and 3rd bedroom has a twin over full bunk bed. The master bath has a huge walk in shower built for two with side by side shower heads, a separate large limestone soaking tub, and double vanity. The second bathroom has a tile bath/shower combo. The living area is a large great room combining the living room, kitchen, and dining room. The gourmet kitchen has a large island that sits 6 and is great for entertaining. All new stainless steal appliances. The refrigerator has filtered water and ice maker. There is also a large laundry room just off the kitchen. Enjoy the backyard view from the beautiful covered porch with vaulted ceiling. Everything needed for your stay is provided, except food. Organic linens, cooking necessities, tv, PS4, apple tv, netflix, espresso machine, scooters, soccer goal, and balls are all on site.

The location can't be beat. Our house is located in the historic district of Hyde Park. Hyde Park is one of the few truly walkable neighborhoods in Austin. You can walk to great restaurants (Asti, Hyde Park Bar and Grill, Foreign and Domestic), a bakery (Quacks), a gelato shop(Dolce Vita), a cheese shop(Antonelli's), and bars(Drink Well, The Tigress, Dolce Vita). All without leaving the neighborhood. There are also bus stops on almost every corner making a car unnecessary. Enjoy Austin!

About Summer Hoff

My husband and I have been married for 12 years and have two wonderful boys. We both graduated from the University of Texas. I am a Texas girl and he is from Indiana. I am a high school math and science teacher. Tom is an electrical engineer. We are hoping to rent out our house some so we can travel more with our two children, while sharing our awesome city with others. We know you will love Austin and our neighborhood as much as we do!

Summer Hoff purchased this house in 2012

Why Summer Hoff chose Hyde Park

We purchased this house for the lot and the location. We were able to turn the original house into the house of our dreams through an extensive year long renovation. The location allows us to live a pedestrian life style while getting the neighborhood feel at the same time.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy walking to the many great destinations within the Hyde Park neighborhood. Asti Trattoria, Hyde Park Bar and Grill, UT, Shipe Park and Pool, Dolce Vita, Quack's Bakery, and Antonelli's Cheese Shop are some of my family's favorite destinations. Our house is warm and inviting with large windows throughout allowing for great views of large backyard.

Great house, great hosts, great experience.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent about a week in this house. It was my graduation and they all came visit from quite far away. All I can say is that our experience was just perfect. Each and everyone of us loved the place, and it undoubtedly became one of the highlights of our trip.

The house is really spacious, and you can tell everything is brand new or remodeled. The bedrooms are super nice, and the beds are huge and very comfortable. The living room and the backyard is were we spent most of our time, and it was just fabulous.

Summer and her husband are super nice. We did not have any issues with the house, but they were always very caring and reachable. Everything was clean and tidy, and they prepared everything we needed to make our stay more enjoyable.

I already knew the neighborhood, and in my opinion it is one of the best in the city. It is nice and quiet, great to have peaceful afternoon walks, and very close to campus (15 min walk). Central Market and HEB (groceries stores), are 3 minutes away by car. If you do not feel like using the car, the house is also really close to two of the main North-South bus lines in the city (bus #5 on Speedway, and #7 on Duval), as well as all the lines on Guadalupe street.

I would definitely recommend this house to families with young children or teenagers, or any group of friends. Summer and her husband are the best hosts anyone could wish for, and the house is just incredible. =).
