Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I grew up in NW Indiana outside of Chicago where I retired young and now spend a lot of time in Austin. I do most of the construction work myself and I'm very detail oriented. My wife is excellent with design and decorating and I do the application (what I'm told to do.) At the end of the day we have someone that knows what to do and someone that knows how to do it.

Why the Owner Chose South Congress, Austin, TX, USA:
The location is perfect! We are close enough to walk, yet far enough that parking isn't a problem due to the traffic visiting Congress Avenue. I include bicycles at no extra charge. I strive to make your experience enjoyable enough to want to stay again on your next visit to Austin.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Upscale is the best one word to describe this unit. The private outdoor picnic area is a unique bonus available at our property. You will find yourself feeling very comfortable in our apartment.
