This house is beautiful, clean, spacious, and best of all located '1' minute from downtown and 1 minute to the Famous 6th Street, 1.5 miles from the UT Football Stadium and 1 mile from the convention center, 10 minutes from the airport, 3 miles to Zilker Park.

ABOUT THIS HISTORIC BEAUTIFUL HOUSE:

You've heard of LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!...LUXURY! LUXURY! LUXURY!...correct?

Well, this house on 9th Street defines it al! Step into this house and walk on walnut antique floors, high ceilings, and most of the furniture is from Neiman Marcus.

The house was built in 1910. This is why it is located in the heart of Austin, Texas. The neighborhood is recognized as 'Banker's Row' or 'The French Legation Museum area. The French Legation Museum is right across the street!

In the early 1900's all the banks were located right downtown Austin. In fact, just walk across the street and walk to visit our neighbor and tour the Oldest House in Austin, Texas! Built 171 years ago, it sits in side the French Legation Museum grounds.

This is how historic this area is. The bankers lived in this neighborhood and would walk or ride a horse and carriage to work.

The Vacation Rental House has approx.2600-2700 sq. ft. When you walk in the front door, you step in to a beautiful big room. The room measures 41 feet x 21 feet., antique walnut floors, crown molding, 14 foot ceiling and a beautiful chandelier.

The house has a total of 4 bathrooms (3 full and one 1/2 bath). On the first floor, there is a big family room and it has 3 couches, 2 living room chairs, a large dining table to sit 8 to 10. In addition, this big family room flows into a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar that sits four, plus a tea room with a table that sits another four!

As you head upstairs to the 2nd floor you will find that the stairs are also made of antique walnut wood with a wrought iron rail. Upstairs you will find the master bedroom number 3, bedroom number 4, and in bedroom 5 you have the option to divide the room with two beautiful large book shelfs to provide privacy and it can become room number 6.

Very unique house. Remember, it was built in 1910, but a complete remodel and upstair addition in 2006! Yes, it has 2 big central air-condition units because it does get hot in Texas!

Bedroom 5 and 6 has 24 windows and every other window opens and you can feel the fresh breeze flow right thru (in the fall and spring). From these windows you have a view of downtown, which is a block away, a view of the Capitol of Texas, The Hilton, The Sheraton, The Hilton Garden, The Austonian (tallest building), 360 Condos, Frost Bank Tower, and you can watch the sunset!

Imagine a vacation where you do not have to drive anywhere the entire time you are here. So much is within walking distance or if you choose to ride a $5.00 cab will get you downtown or UBER. The house is 1 minute from downtown and the Famous 6th Street they will come pick you up for a donation.

Keep in mind that this house is on E. 9th Street! Walk to to the night life right on E. 6th Street, Rainy Street, Congress District, 2nd Street District, West 6th District and so many more areas! Check out 'The Eastside District' and you must find time to grab a beer and listen to every type of music that has every been written! Rainey Street is just an 8 minute walk from your vacation rental! Google it! Wells Fargo is 2 blocks, CVS pharmacy is 2 blocks, Gualdalupe Catholic Church is 2 blocks, Wendy's is 2 blocks, Blue Dahlia Resturant is 3 blocks, Angie's Mexican Food is on E. 7th, Sagra (Italina food) is on E. 11th, Franklin Bar B Q is 21/2 blocks, liquor store is 2 blocks on E. 11th, Mijos Mexican restaurant is on E. 11th, walk two blocks from the house and you will be on E. 11th.

About Amber Barnett

My name is Amber Barnett, I am the property manager of all three of the Artale's vacation rentals. I was born and raised in Austin, so I have watched our city grow tremendously over the years. I lived in New York City for 4 years and that was an amazing experience, but there is something special about Austin's laid back lifestyle that brought me home. I love this city and look forward to assisting you with your vacation. Please let me know if you need any suggestions on restaurants, bars, activities, shopping and more!

Amber Barnett purchased this house in 2006

Why Amber Barnett chose Austin

Our 3 vacation homes are located in the heart of Austin. Keep in mind these are big houses and NOT A CONDO! It is rare that you will find big vacation rental houses this close to downtown. This house has a special place in my heart because my bachelorette party was here and I stayed here on my wedding weekend!

The area is known for its eclectic patio bars, authentic taco stands, music, food and abundance of bicycles, East Austin is a hip hodgepodge of culture. This vibrant community is home to many types of people from artists and musicians to business owners.

What makes this house unique

This house was originally built in 1910 and was the home to the First African American Lawyer in Austin! It is located across from the French Legation Museum, which is where the French settled when arriving in Austin. The view from the second floor is to die for! You can see the whole Austin skyline night or day! The walk to downtown is just minutes away, or head over to East 6th Street and enjoy the eclectic bars and food trailers!

Great House and Fantastic Customer Service

  • 5 of 5

I have to start off by giving lots of praise to Amber for making the entire rental process easy and free of hiccups. When I was quoting various houses in Austin for the same weekend, she had by far the most consistent and reliably quick responses of everyone, which goes a long way in my book. The house itself was in a great location that pretty much eliminated the need to take taxis anywhere, and with so much to do in the area, walking everywhere is a part of the fun!

Excellent House, Excellent Location, Excellent Service/Amenities

  • 5 of 5

Amber was great. The house was exactly as described. Easy walk to many of the famous BBQ locations and 6th Street. House is on the corner of the street so there is a giant front yard and porch to hang out there.

Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

The experience exceeded all expectations! We stayed at the house for three nights for a friend's bachelor party. From the electronic key pad, to the fresh linens, towels, cable televisions, we very quickly felt at home. We had no trouble fitting our 12 guests. Location very convenient to 6th street and lots of good restaurants and bars. Would gladly stay there again.

Perfect for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house just this past weekend for our friend's 40th birthday party. This house was perfect for 12 people to sleep comfortably and also to entertain during the day. It was also a meeting spot for everyone that wasn't staying with us because it was so centrally located. You were walks away from 6th Street and everything that downtown has to offer.

Parents of the Groom

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely centrally located house when in Austin for our son's wedding. The home is extremely well equipped and well appointed. The owners were very responsive when we contacted them our first day with a few questions and when emailing prior to our visit. The only fault we might point out is the configuration of the bedrooms is sort of odd. We had no issue with this as we were all extended family. Other than this, we absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful home!
