About Jennifer Potter-Miller

I moved to Austin with my family when I was in high school, left for college in Minnesota, a year in Brazil, and work in Los Angeles before coming back to put down roots in Texas. This house was my home for 10 years, and when our family grew we loved the neighborhood too much to go farther than a few blocks away!

Jennifer Potter-Miller purchased this house in 2000

Why Jennifer Potter-Miller chose Austin

When I moved back to Austin I knew I wanted to live in a central neighborhood with interesting neighbors and fun things to do close by. Cherrywood fit the bill, and has only gotten better in the last several years with new restaurants opening and the unique new In.gredients grocery store around the corner. It's the first zero waste packaging-free store in the country, and of course it's in Austin!

This house is within a 20 minute walk, 10 minute bike ride, or 10 minute bus ride to the UT campus and nearby hospitals. It's also blocks from I-35, which means downtown is minutes away and you can get anywhere quickly.

The house is a comfortable retreat from work or whatever adventures bring you to Austin. It's on a quiet street filled with mellow neighbors and towering trees. The living area is filled with natural light, and there are sitting areas in the front and back yards.

What makes this house unique

The benefits of being in the Cherrywood neighborhood include being close by to

- In.gredients (the first package free grocery store in the U.S.!)

- Mi Madre's Mexican restaurant

- El Chilito taqueria

- El Chile Cafe y Cantina

- Vivo Restaurant

- The Salty Sow restaurant and wine bar

- Thunderbird's Coffee

- The Salvage Vanguard Theatre

- The Butterfly Bar

- Blue Starlite Drive-In

Cute, cozy house in hip neighborhood close to UT

  • 4 of 5
This house is fantastic! My husband had business at UT and he walked every day, stopping at several different places to sample their breakfast burritos. I had our three small children during the day and we had lots of fun outings in Austin. The house was great for us since it had a crib and glider rocker in the master bedroom already and the 2nd bedroom right next door for our toddlers. Jennifer was a fantastic hostess, going above and beyond to provide a baby gate, toys, and books, not to mention suggestions for babysitters and kid-friendly activities. The fenced in back yard was great and the neighborhood was fabulous for walks. LOVED staying here. There were some mixups with checking in and checking out times that were inconvenient, which is the only reason I didn't give the property a full 5 stars. Jennifer did her best to accommodate us, but it did make things a little chaotic.

Great House, Great location!

  • 5 of 5
We came in from England for our Grandson's baptism and had such a great 10 days staying here. There were 4 of us and plenty of room. The house is lovely and so comfortable (a home away from home). It's
in a great location. There are lots of places to eat and bars nearby. It was just perfect for us as it was only a 10 minute walk away from my sons house. Thank you we'll be back again next time we visit.

enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5
This a great location to stay if you are in town for business and want to avoid the downtown scene but be in the city. The house is tucked in quiet neighborhood just the other side of I35 from the university. The house is well represented from the listing and had everything you would expect to find at a rental vacation home. I choose this house because it has a grassy, enclosed back yard for my dog to enjoy. The chain link fence is sturdy and has no gaps. My dog even enjoyed visiting with the neighbors' dogs. The area is low traffic and safe for evening dog walks. There is a very small park just 2 walking minutes away. About 5 walking minutes away is Cherrywood Coffeehouse which serves outstanding food and drinks. The property owner was very professional and helpful!

Never staying in a hotel again. Whole family including the dog enjoyed this home. Jennifer the owner was very detailed minded by even providing shopping sacks (Austin doesn't do plastic bags anymore FYI). Looking forward to move family trips here.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5
We came in from Florida for my daughter's wedding in downtown Austin. This place made our travel was such a pleasure ~my two teenagers even raved about how nice this place is and how they liked it much better than a hotel. The house is very Austin-esque. I loved the eclectic decor and the location to downtown and great places to eat was absolutely perfect. When we visit again, we'll be right back here! Thank you, Jennifer, for such a pleasant experience.

Wonderful Austin-y home!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in Jennifer's lovely home for 3 nights over Easter weekend and had a fantastic weekend. Jennifer's home is adorable, comfortable, and has a classy but eclectic Austin vibe. The landscaping in the front yard we especially loved - we spent every morning in the breakfast nook in the back, and every evening out on the front porch sipping local brews and enjoying the neighborhood.

Our dog loved the backyard and spent lots of time lounging out there. The bed in the master bedroom is incredibly comfortable (hard to get out of!) and the house is quiet and in a cute, friendly neighborhood. There is a full kitchen with dishes, glasses, and cookware.

The best part -- we didn't have to drive anywhere and walked to Manor Rd. every day to eat/drink/be merry. There are lots of local eateries and bars, stores, etc less than 5 minutes walking distance and Jennifer provided an awesome list of thing to do in her neighborhood, many of which we did - like eating a fantastic meal and both El Chile and East Side Cafe and enjoying drinks with friends at Thunderbird Coffee and Butterfly Bar. We went downtown one night and the cab fare was only $12 (which is how much it is to park downtown). Definitely a great location!

She also provided information on lots of events and festivals going on in Austin while we were there, which I thought was really above and beyond. She offered for us to stay as long as we wanted on Sunday as well. We were sad to go, and can't wait to come back soon!

Thanks Jennifer!

Located blocks from The University of Texas, and walking distance to the Darrell K Royal Texas Memorial Stadium, UFCU Disch-Falk baseball Field, Myers Track and Soccer Stadium, Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library, Blanton Museum of Art.

The Cherrywood neighborhood always has new places opening up. Just recently The Salty Sow opened on Manor Rd., and is a fabulous restaurant and wine bar. Another wonderful new hang out is Contigo, which has a menu based around the kinds of foods served at the Contigo Ranch in South Texas.
