Why Brooks Calavan chose Austin

Location and Space. We chose this lot because it was twice the size as a normal downtown city lot. It is close to it all with luxury and ambience that exceeds all expectations. Walk to UT baseball, Football, soccer and Basketball Games. Walking distance to many restaurants and bars. approx 1/2 a mile to famous 6th street. close to Zilker park for Austin City limits festival and close to Circuit of the Americas for all racing enthusiasts.

What makes this house unique

We designed this spacious home In 2007 with over 4,000 sq ft to give us all the modern benefits but fit in with the bungalow feel of the neighborhood.

Awesome House in a great location

  • 5 of 5

House was great for a large group. Plenty of space to accommodate everyone. The upstairs balcony and backyard fire pit were perfect to sit around and talk. Location was easy to use cabs for Rainey and 6th St. Walking distance to our tailgate at the football stadium. Brooks was helpful and easy to get in contact with. Thank you!

Beautiful property with plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. There was plenty of room for our group, and the homeowner Brooks was really helpful with the few questions we had after arriving. Everyone felt comfortable & relaxed, and the October weather really cooperated so that we could take full advantage of the backyard. The location is great, and a real find!

This house was great! So much space, very nice, and great for a group!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of friends out to Austin for a wedding. This house was beautiful, and very accommodating. The owner is very responsive and helpful, especially if you are not from the area. It is a quick uber/cab ride to the main downtown area. I would recommend this property and would love to stay here again!

The house was beautiful and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

Overall the house was great. The homeowner Brooks was more than helpful. Very spacious house in a great area to get around the popular parts of the city. We had a group of 16 guys for and with the pull out beds, couches, and blow up mattresses it worked well.
