Why Deirdre chose Austin
I own several 1930's cottages in central Austin. For ten years I lived in and fell in love with this cottage for many reasons. In addition to the extraordinary neighborhood, I was always grateful to enjoy so many original details of this home. Having spent more than two years in Europe, architectural integrity, urban location and uncompromised materials along with a good price became what mattered much more than square footage. Thus beautiful cottages and cozy spaces are a natural fit for me now. I hope you'll enjoy this enchanting property as much as I think you will. Thank you!
