This charming 1930's Craftsman Bungalow was fully renovated in 2007 and is conveniently located in a quiet and eclectic neighborhood just east of downtown Austin and is within close walking distance to the Convention Center, Downtown, 6th Street, Lady Bird Lake and several chic new restaurants and clubs.
The bungalow is nestled among three other bungalows and an historic 1880's Victorian farmhouse that shares a fenced and lushly landscaped yard with patios, trails and a hot tub/spa. It's a perfect place to relax while visiting Austin.
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.
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.
The shared Gardens are a relaxing place to unwind and enjoy leisurely Austin comfort--with a downtown skyline view!
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.
