About Jay Reynolds

I'm a born and raised Austinite and actually i've lived more on less in this neighborhood my whole life! I love the Zilker and Barton Hills area. There's really no where else i'd rather call home. Currently I live right around the corner from this property.

Jay Reynolds purchased this House in 2013

Why Jay Reynolds chose South Lamar

This is a fabulous three bedroom home in one of Austin's premier neighborhoods, Barton Hills. The location is perfect for exploring town and still having a quiet place to go relax and regroup.

What makes this House unique

We had a huge deck built in the back yard! Plus you can walk to lots of great eats. But the best thing: Zilker Park and the Barton Creek Greenbelt is a short distance away. Downtown is only 3 miles. New restaurants are opening within just a few blocks seemingly every day!

                                                                  Stacy H.

                                                                  We were in town for a wedding at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden near Zilker Park and this house fit our needs perfectly. Less than 3 miles from the venue and downtown. We love South Austin and this place was exactly as advertised. We couldn't have asked for better accomodations. Jay and Kelly were in touch and available if needed. Of course we had no issues so all was good. The Westrock will be our first choice when looking to book in Austin again.

                                                                  Perfect house for our short friends trip!

Our son got married in Austin so we had lots of people in town. We were able to have cookouts and entertain. The house was clean and we made good use of the washer and dryer.

                                                                  Owner is awesome! Location is super!

                                                                  'The Westrock' is located just south of downtown Austin, in the Barton Hills neighborhood (one of Austin's finest!). The Barton Creek Greenbelt is just a couple block away and Zilker Park is about a mile and half away, all through the neighborhood! Also, don't forget about Austin's most famous honkey tonk dance club: The Broken Spoke - less than two blocks away. You can even pull that off in your boots, I reckon! Some nearby eats: Kerbey Lane Cafe, Torchy's Tacos, Papalote Tacos, Thundercloud Subs, Phoenicia Bakery and Deli, and dozens more. Nearby drinks: Gordoughs Public House, Baker St Pub, Park Sports Bar, Pluckers. Public transport is easy if you won't be having a car - there's bus stops just out on Lamar. Easy access.
