Hi! I own and cherish the Garden St. House and Apartment. I love this house! My name is Connie, but I also go as Paprika, a nickname of 20 years or more.

The house and apartment have quite different personalities. Downstairs, the house has antiques, original wood floors from 1912, overstuffed couch and chair with arches, colorful walls and character.

Upstairs in the Treehouse Apartment, the design is modern, with red wood floors, curvy purple couch, a full size bed and a platform queen size bed with 3 skylights that connect you to the trees and the world outside. The skylight over the shower is the best! The glorious deck is surrounded by trees, and it truly does feel like living in a treehouse.

Come stay at the Garden St. House and Treehouse Apartment! It's a wonderful space for a few or for many. It feels like home, and has all of the comforts and more!

Connie 'Paprika' Leaverton purchased this house in 2001

I bought this wonderful house in 2001 to live in because of the nearby parks, lake and its close access to downtown, 6th street and everything cool! It was built in 1912 and has original wood floors, which I found during renovation after peeling up layers of carpet, vinyl and tar paper. Joyous to find! They are beautiful pine floors that give the house an old country house feel.

I have since renovated it, taking out walls, adding arches and adding vaulted ceilings...and the apartment upstairs. It is now a combination of new and old. Bold colors complement the various rooms of the 1800 square foot downstairs house. The 'treehouse' apartment upstairs is an additional 700 square feet including a private deck in the trees with a modern urban design and red wood floors.

The big covered front porch of the downstairs house reminds me of the slower simpler days of the early 1900's when neighbors used to spend alot of time outside drinking lemonade to stay cool in the hot Austin summers, waving to neighbors and enjoying the occasional rainstorm while sitting under the protected large porch. Don't worry, I now have central AC/Heat to keep you cool and warm in winter...but you can still enjoy the rain and wave to the neighbors on this wonderful porch.

The upstairs apartment I built for myself so I could start renting out the downstairs area for vacation rentals. So the apartment is very nice! Now I live elsewhere and rent the apartment separately and with the house.

The apartment has high grade red wood floors, texured ceilings, peach and blue interior colors along with high end urban modern furnishings. The private entrance and private balcony in the trees give this apartment a treehouse feel. I lived there for about a year, and then have since started my own family and moved to South Austin.

That is why both the upstairs and downstairs are now vacation rentals but with a homelike feel. Downstairs you find the big country home with antiques, and upstairs you find hip, cool treehouse with a modern design. They can be rented together or separately depending on your needs.

Thank you for visiting my Garden St. House and Apartment Site. Hopefully I'll see you here soon!

Many smiles,

Connie

Our weekend in the Trehouse apartment was lovely. It was too cold for the great porch up in the trees, so we happily settled for the patter of rain on the skylights.
Juan in a Million kept us well fed and we found the "hot mama" coffee shop in walking distance as well.
Quiet, near our friends in the neighborhood. Thanks!

This was the first time I've ever rented a house, and it was just great
for our family to be able to stay all
together in the Garden Street apartment (upstairs and down) for the week of my daughter's wedding. The location was perfect - easy access to and from the airport, not far from downtown, and close to the hike and bike trail, which we enjoyed. Our every comfort was provided for, including cookie sheets, which were used to bake 320 Mexican Wedding cookies! Thank you, Connie, for
sharing your (in the words of my
grandson) cool house with us. We
had a wonderful week!
Owner's Response: Carol, Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed my Cool Austin House! I think its cool too! It's great for big groups, and it has a great stove. Guess so, since you made so many cookies. Come back! Connie

What a joy to spend the Thanksgiving holiday in
Austin! The Garden House was the perfect place for
our family of four. Lots of room to spread out, a
lovely porch, and the ideal location (within walking
distance of "Juan in a Million") all contributed to a
perfect trip. Can't wait to come back!
Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed the Garden St. House AND that wonderful mexican food restaurant "Juan in a Million" located just 2 blocks away. I love the porches too. Come back soon!

A group of eight of us occupied the entire property during the ACL festival in early October. The house was perfect for our large group. It sure beat staying in a hotel. We especially enjoyed the upstairs deck and the visiting kitties. The house had all the amenities to make our stay comfortable and fun.

My son, his friend and I stayed in the garden apartment for a week in early August. The boys took part in a BookPeople camp at McKinney Falls, and we thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable, clean and cozy upstairs apartment. The location was nice and close to the city.

We enjoyed our stay in your comfortable home. The location was great - close to the hike and bike trail, downtown, and south Congress. Everything was provided and it was so much more fun than staying in a hotel. We can't wait to come back!
Owner's Response: So glad you got to enjoy the beautiful parks and downtown! And yes, SoCo is only about 5 minutes away. Many thanks! Connie Leaverton, owner

The Garden Street property was a perfect home for the weekend. Close to Downtown and in a quiet neighborhood. Nice porch and backyard. I would recommend this property to someone looking for a rental house in the city.
Thanks Connie,

I just wanted to say thanks for letting us stay in
your apartment! We had a great time and really
enjoyed all the little things you did to make our
stay comfortable: coffee, shampoo, towels, etc. The
apartment was perfect for the three of us and a
quick walk or cab ride away from downtown. It was
a great way for us to experience the city of Austin
and the SxSW Film Festival!
