I am Ann. My husband, Jay, and I live in Houston. We initially bought our mid-century modern home in the quiet historical neighborhood of Travis Heights because we liked its unique qualities and location, close to SOCO, St. Edward's U. and downtown. Hopefully it will be our retirement home some day. Today it is perfectly refurbished and finished with a pleasing mix of modern pieces and antiques along with our collection of bright modern prints and photographs.
Travis Heights is a beautiful neighborhood. It has a charming mix of the most interesting and diverse houses in Austin. It has hills, wonderful views, and is marvelously close to all Austin has to offer.
Our safe location in a historical neighborhood is perfect, with easy access to Bergstrom International Airport, downtown, Town Lake, Zilker Park, South Congress, the Austin Convention Center, and the Long Center for the Performing Arts.
