In 1994 I bought this home, my first historical home in Austin, and I have enjoyed being a landlord for over ten years. Separately, having used an imperfect diet instead of chemotherapy to reverse my own disabling disease, my other career uses over two decades as a Registered Dietitian to bring the healing power of food to others. As featured speaker for radio and TV, medical professionals, universities and corporations, I have authored a book that sells in twelve countries and is a best seller at Amazon. A documentary of my recovery, “The Incurables”, also airs internationally on Veria TV. My hope is to simply a healing diet for others on their path to remarkable results.

I own several 1930's cottages in central Austin, all of them in neighborhoods on the National Register of Historic Places. For ten years I lived in and fell in love with this cottage for many reasons. In my humble opinion, this is the only neighborhood left in Austin that still retains the feel of old, old Austin yet it offers immediate access to the best of what is new in Austin. A home built in 1850 is two blocks away. This street alone has six homes which have garnered commendation individually on the National Register of Historic Places. 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!
Premium real estate at a reasonable price. Preserved historical details include original tiles in the kitchen and bathroom, original sinks and cast iron tub, original glass door knobs, original kitchen cabinetry, original ironing board stored inside the kitchen wall. Stand alone cottage with covered parking and a large back yard all to yourself because this is the only residence on the entire property. (Duplexes and triplexes are extremely common in Hyde Park.) It's very easy to live car free in this cherished neighborhood on the National Register of Historic Places. Delightful parrot colony just one block north at the University of Texas Intramural Field. Comfort is ensured with all linens made of 100% cotton. Multiple very good grocers, restaurants, eateries along with a theater and a museum are all within walking distance.
Included on the National Register of Historic Places, Hyde Park is a rare urban village inside a city. Very few neighborhoods can boast of having their own sculpture museum, live theater, annual tour of homes, the oldest municipal golf course in Texas, 100 year old grocery stores, Austin Farmer's Market, the highest ranked public schools, public tennis courts and swimming pools, and restaurants galore. Proximity to UT makes it popular among faculty and graduate students, and those going downtown find the easy drive attractive. Hyde Park is also popular with young families who enjoy architectural integrity, quiet streets, parks and welcoming community.
