NEW EAST AUSTIN MODERN FARMHOUSE MEETS COMFORT, CONVENIENCE, AND CHARM

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

New East Austin Modern Farmhouse, .5 Acres, 4BR/2.5 BA, 3 Min Walk To Light Rail

This house has a little of it all: location, charm, convenience, comfort.

If you're looking for location and convenience, we are 1 mile east of downtown and a 3 minute walk to the MLK light rail station. Whether driving, riding, cycling, or walking you are sure to get anywhere in central Austin quickly without having to fight traffic.

Built in late 2013 you will get both comfort and charm with this modern farmhouse. The well spaced, 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home has a master suite downstairs and 3 bedrooms upstairs. The large living room windows and french doors opening on to the back patio give plenty of light to this open floor plan. There is also plenty of seating for dining or relaxing in the living room. If you are looking for space outdoors, the house sits on over .5 acres and is home to a majestic, 250+ yr old live oak tree.

If you are a family traveling with small children, a crib, high chair, etc are all available. We can work with you to provide any additional items that would make your trip easier with children, such as strollers, carseats, babysitting references and more.

About Robert McKee

Our dream for this house started back in 2011 when we purchased the 1 acre lot in 2011. Roughly two years later construction was completed and we moved in late November 2013.

We're a family with 1 kiddo and like to maintain an open door policy. Whether that's additional people living with us, family members in town, friends/friends family, or VRBO guests, we love sharing our home with others.

Robert McKee purchased this house in 2013

Why Robert McKee chose Austin

We love East Austin because it is a thriving and diverse part of town, increasingly the place to be in central Austin. In addition to being home to some of the best Tex-Mex dining in the city -- Nuevo Leon, Vivo, and El Chile are three favorites-- there are many restaurants, coffee houses and bars on the east side. The hot spots are on Manor Road, East 5th-East 7th, and, more recently, the Mueller Development. Eastside Pies, Salvage Vanguard Theatre, Bennu Coffee and Contigo are highlights.

What makes this house unique

The entire East side of our first floor features large windows and glass french doors, allowing for lots of natural light in both the living and dining areas. This openness and abundance of light sets the tone for our entire house, which is clean, simple and airy. Self-proclaimed anti-clutter enthusiasts, we keep the house clean and kitsch-free while not skimping on comfort and style.

Perfect House, Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely place in a perfect location! We enjoyed a girls' getaway weekend with plenty of space to relax, lounge and visit. I would recommend this very comfortable accommodation to any one wanting to spend some time in Austin. The neighborhood has a lot of new and cool places to eat and drink but the house is also a perfect spot to hang around, cook for yourself and enjoy time together, which is exactly what we did!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Our group had a wonderful Girls Retreat Weekend in this lovely home. The home itself was in immaculate condition, and everything was as pictured in the listing. The owners were so accommodating with the size of our group, checking in, etc., which really made a huge difference in our trip. The location was perfect as well, and only a short drive to a really great part of Austin.

Lovely home, very pleasant property owners

  • 5 of 5
I am a producer for an Austin-based video production company. I regularly use HomeAway and similar sites to find locations for video productions. This experience was exceptional.

The home is spacious with a minimalistic approach to interior design. Though it is minutes from downtown, I felt transported to a calmer, more idyllic Austin. It was perfect for our shoot, but I could tell it would also be a perfect place to kick off my shoes and chill on the couch. In fact, the only downside of the place was that I didn't get to stay the night there.

Additionally, the owners (husband and wife) were extremely kind and accommodating. I will be happy to suggest this property to any Austin visitor friends of mine.

Owner's Response: Though we love to be able to share our home overnight, we enjoyed the opportunity to rent it for the day as well. We gladly welcome any requests to use our home for video or photo shoots!

Great family friendly home

  • 5 of 5
We had very high hopes for this property as the house looked amazing from the photographs. We were surprised to find that it lived up to every expectation! The house is beautifully designed with every inch planned to live larger than the house's size.

The outdoor space was great and perfect for the kids and we enjoyed drinks on the porch nightly! We took full advantage of the kitchen cooking several delicious meals and it was well stocked with all we needed. The owners were very warm and helpful and the house is immaculately maintained.

Stay here if you can. You won't regret it.

Perfect house, location and owners!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for a weekend with a group of girl friends - my first time using homeaway.com, so I didn't know fully what to expect. We immediately knew we were in good hands with this precious, sweet couple though! Robert was very accommodating to meet us with keys and show us around. They had set up additional beds for our group size (unasked, all on their own) and left wine, coffee and helpful notes/contact information. The house was just as expected from the photos, but better! Beautiful, very clean, lots of space. Everything we needed and more. It was close to everywhere we wanted to go, too - we were on bikes most of the weekend and everything else was just a 5 minute drive. I've already strongly recommended this place to a friend!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure hosting your group - it is nice to know that your party of 8 was comfortable in our home! Glad to know that using bikes to get around town worked well for you. Please consider our house for your next trip to Austin!
