This Texas-sized home welcomes you to the quaint Hyde Park historic neighborhood - five minutes to anywhere! Well, almost anywhere.
When you first walk into the front door, you're welcomed by a living room that opens to the dining area, an expanse the size of some apartments. With enough couch space to seat a family around the television, cable television, Wi-Fi and a DVD/Blue Ray combo, the family isn't hard pressed for much on movie night.
The best/worst thing that happened to Thanksgiving is football. But, let's face it, when the game is on, the game is on. Hence our open concept dining area - for traditional and modern families alike. With optional seating for 8, even your dining options are versatile!
If that's not enough, your second living area should pick up the slack. With cable and DVD options, you have plenty of choices for a large/diverse group.
Your kitchen is no rookie kitchen either (although it's great for rookies, too). With a gas stove, two ovens, LOTS of counter space, pots, pans, cooking utensils, a diverse spice rack, tea, coffee beans, coffee grinder & maker, plates, silverware, glasses and even wine glasses, you need only bring your specialty items. We even have basic condiments, a toster and shopping bags for your convenience.
Bedrooms 1-4 each have a king-sized bed, large mirror, chest of drawers, bedside table and lamp. Your master bedroom also has a fold out couch and an mp3 dock (for playing your digital media or podcasts). Bedroom 5 has two twin beds, children's books and a couple of games. So at night, or for sleeping in, your home is a nest built for cozying up when you're not out on th' town!
Also, no home is complete without access to the restroom. You'll have two full restrooms downstairs (1 shower/bath, 1 shower) and a hollywood bath upstairs (1 shower/bath combo with two separate toilet/washrooms) between both upstairs bedrooms. So, whether you have to get up in the middle of the night or have a big event to prepare for, there's easy access to take care of your needs. Assorted towels, make-up pads, tissue soaps and hair dryers are also provided for your convenience.
And, to make your home complete, your backyard comes with a bench that can easily seat 6, couple of extra lawn chairs, a large umbrella, a grill and grilling tools for your convenience. Meanwhile, your lovely front yard, with tiny front porch is a great spot for a couple of people to sit and catch up under the shade of a large tree, while waving at your neighbors and taking in breathing the nice Austin air.
While you're not enjoying your wonderful home, we hope you're busy enjoying our fair city. There's information here, on the table, to get you started.
Hyde Park is an even mix of city life with a quaint feel. With much of Austin's action happening within a 3 mile radius, you'll have quick access to the University of Texas, downtown, the Austin Convention Center, and many other Austin happenings. Conveniently situated between Red River and Guadalupe street (and a straight shot to I-35), you don't have to be a master navigator to drive around. And, if you don't feel like driving, you can simply step outside to catch the bus that stops within 30 feet of your front door. Also, with a few varieties of local restaurants and shops within a 5 minute walk, you don't have to venture far for a night out. Or, when you're not feeling like a tourist, you can also walk to Shipe Park or one of the nearby cafés, and simply lay low.
This home is also ideal for large groups, looking for 3 - 5 bedrooms - up to 11 people (though we are NOT a party house). You can bring your large group for weddings, seminars, SXSW, UT games/events, ACL, F1 and more.
