Nestled in the heart of central Austin, the Hancock Modern provides the perfect location for all of your Austin activities. The Modern is a relaxing alternative for those seeking a more enlightened stay: urban living with a breath of fresh air.

The Modern features four bedrooms, two baths, and is beautifully landscaped for indoor / outdoor living. This urban retreat was designer-refreshed in 2010 featuring all new appliances and fine furnishings.

This beautiful home is situated in Allandale in the Shoal Creek area, a tranquil neighborhood with quiet, tree-lined streets.

Spend your afternoons relaxing on the deck, or take a walk in the nearby 30-acre park. The Park has a huge pond, swimming pool with lap lanes, diving boards, and a children's wading pool, lighted tennis courts, basketball court, children's playground, and baseball field.

You are about a mile from Austin's best grocery stores (Whole Foods and Central Market), a short drive to the University of Texas and to any downtown location. You are four blocks from the 30 acre Northwest Park with pool, tennis courts, and children's playground and across the street from the Shoal Creek hike and bike trail leading to Lady Bird Lake.

The Hancock Modern vacation rental features stained concrete floors, and the home has been completely remodeled with new appliances.

The Hancock Modern short term rental can be found in the quiet, tree-lined streets of Austin's Shoal Creek neighborhood, just 10 minutes from Downtown, the Med Center, and the University of Texas.

Stroll in the park or dine at the numerous nearby restaurants and cafes.

WHY DID WE CHOOSE THE ALLANDALE NEIGHBORHOOD?

Allandale is a highly desirable neighborhood in Austin due to its central proximity to Downtown, the University, the Arboretum, and the Domain. We love that there are so many families in Allandale as well as a 30+ acre park complete with pond, tennis courts, and swimming pool. You'll enjoy taking long walks and bird watching--there are more trees in Allandale than anywhere. We love Allandale--we live there ourselves! It's the perfect location and a great Austin experience.

Very cool, convenient, centrally located neighborhood with lots of character and conveniences: The Alamo Drafthouse (Austin's most popular movie theater), Bartlett's, HopDoddy, The Goodnight Bar and Bowling, Suzi's Chinese, Upper Crust Bakery, Yoga Yoga, Sun Harvest, Zen Sushi, Starbuck's, Billy's Burgers, Amy's Ice Cream, Blue Star Cafeteria, Satay Thai, and Alborz Persian are all within 5 minutes.

nick or rachel purchased this house in 2009

The first time we saw the great lines of this 1960's rancher we fell in love . . . it had shag carpeting, popcorn ceilings, and wood paneling, but through the labor of love we were able to modernize it to today's standards. You'll enjoy all the light from the three sets of sliding glass doors as well as the uniquely angled ceilings.

LOVED THIS HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
This home was not only extremely comfortable but decorated retro chic with a cool eye for details (Rachel?!). We were a group of five, two couples and a friend, coming for a music festival from Paris, France and we were quickly falling in love with Austin thanks to our marvelous stay in this unique house.
Description, photos, listing were accurate and plus +. Delightful yard in the back was a surprise (no photos on the site).
We had a warm welcome with music playing and few lights on as we arrived at night. There was a little problem with a toilet that was taken care of by Nick the same day. We really felt that the owners had put a lot of love and thought into this home and wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay, which we thoroughly did. Thank you, Rachel and Nick!
Highlights of our week stay: Austin Psych Festival, Barton Springs Creek pool (the local pool was enjoyed, too!), La Condesa, food trucks, Ginny's Little Longhorn Saloon, beer

GREAT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We used this house for a weekend when we had lots of guest in town. I live a block away so guest could easily walk to and from. Our guests found the location convenient when they ventured out on their own. We had five adults, two couples and a single adult., however, the house would easily sleep 8 guesting in bedroom plus there is a daybed/futon as well as two more sofas. Much more economical then a hotel. I have used VRBO in many countries. As a result I was pleasantly surprised at how well appointed and maintained the house was. On setting up the house for guest arrival I noticed the coffee carafe was missing in the coffee maker. I called the owner, she picked up immediately. Directed me to a supply area in the garage where they stock supplies and where the replacement carafes are kept.
All appliances worked well including A/C and washer / dryer. The owners have extra fans stored in each bedroom closet for guests.
Owners live near by and are as professional as delightful. The whole experience was easy from reservation to checkout. I will be using this house again for future guests.

AMAZING HOME AND LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
I came to Austin to look for a warehouse space to start my art studio, I had rented another one of Rachel and Nick's lovely homes, the Hancock cottage which is also a beautiful spot to stay. Rachel was kind enough to book me into the Hancock Modern last minute, making sure that everything was perfect for the stay. The house layout is absolutely GORGEOUS. 4 large rooms with very comfortable beds. The living room is large and very inviting, a great spot to have business meetings or just hang out with some friends. The kitchen was spectacular, everything you need to cook up a storm is ready at your fingertips, and if you aren't wanting to dirty the kitchen up the house is surrounded by amazing places to eat. Northcross shopping center is a bike ride away, and the Domain which is one of the most impressive shopping centers i've seen is just a 5 minute drive away, tons of wonderful stores to shop around in and some amazing restaurants. Rachel the home owner went out of her way to make sure that my stay was perfect, some of the most wonderful customer service i have received. All in all, a perfect stay for a group of friends, business meetings, or just a family vacation. I would absolutely recommend this home to anyone making a visit to Austin.

RACE WEEKEND RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
My extended family stayed at the Hancock modern on the weekend of the motogp. The accommodation was stylish, clean and spacious and suited 3 generations of family well (2 gradparents, 2 sets of parents and 2 children <5). The location of the house provides easy freeway access and it took us about 20 minutes each way to COTA. There are lots of eateries and stores within a short drive of the house and we found the neighborhood was leafy and quiet. It was great to come back to this house and relax after a day at the racetrack, it's child friendly and so is the yard. I'll definitely stay here again...

Map

Austin is the center of the Lone Star State and is the gateway to the Texas Hill Country and the Highland Lakes. As the state capital and home to the University of Texas, the city supports a politically charged and culturally rich environment. Austin is hip and high-tech and is lucky to have a huge creative population of musicians, artists, and filmmakers. Austinites live for the outdoors as the city boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year. Nature trails and parks create an oasis in the heart of the city. Town Lake is bordered by 10 miles of hike-and-bike trails where joggers, walkers and cyclists exercise every day. You can take a thirty minute drive to cut your own lavender, bargain for antiques, or visit one of the many Texas wineries and breweries. There are also twenty state parks within a one hour drive.
