When you hear someone say 'Only in Austin' or 'One-of-a-kind Austin,' this is the type of place they're talking about.
We have worked in publishing, theater, film and music. We have created an enclave of houses that are both relaxing, unique and interesting. We have rotating exhibits of local artists hanging in our houses and there are two art installations in the backyard sheds--the 'Wonder Cabinet' and the 'Grotto'.
We fell in love with this neighborhood. It was filled with families who had lived there 2 and 3 generations and had a lot of unique Central Texas flavor. It has gentrified in the years since we purchased our property, but has been filled with other unique people who are trying to preserve this downtown neighborhood, while quickly becoming part of the downtown scene. talk and enjoy conversation.
The property is a part of the disappearing 'old Austin'. It harkens back to a much simpler time, but is right in the middle of modern activity. It's an old Austin oasis in a quickly changing neighborhood.
There are also two other vacation rentals in the same compound. We often have family/friends that rent the entire compound for holidays or events.
The shared Gardens are a relaxing place to unwind and enjoy leisurely Austin comfort--with a downtown skyline view!
