About the Property

Modern Flair With Old World Charm! Cottage Sleeps 3 In The Heart Of S. Congress

This charming cottage is made entirely of native stone and decorated with brand new custom fixtures and furnishings. You will find peace and quiet but charm and sophistication in this enclave in the middle of the best part of austin, tx. This open, 580 square foot floor plan incorporates a full, modern kitchen complete with stainless steel fridge/freezer/ice maker, gas stove, dishwasher, stocked with all the equipment you need to host a wonderful meal. The house is also outfitted with rapid cool ac/heating unit, full size washer and dryer in separate laundry room, modern bathroom with walk in travertine shower. Flooring throughout is travertine and the 9.5' tall ceilings are made of old style barn wood to add to the beauty and charm. Upgraded light fixtures add a wonderful ambiance. The floor plan is open so the queen bed is part of the main living area. The mattress is organic latex. There are two extra twin beds: one couch easily converts by removing the bolsters, the other is a pull out memory foam mattress (xlarge twin). There is a large, fenced yard with gas and charcoal grill and outdoor dining table that seats 6. The TV is internet-ready with Netflix (no cable). The cottage shares the backyard and laundry with the main house which may also be rented at the same time as the cottage. Ample, unrestricted street parking in the front of the house.
