About sharon wang

This house is very sentimental for us, as we took a year and a half to restore this former abandoned house back to the architectual integrity that was the Victorian era. Each phase of the renovation made us fall more and more in love with this house and what it represented. We are very please to share this property with others so that they may also experience what we know... this is a very special house.

sharon wang purchased this house in 1991

Why sharon wang chose Austin

Austin is such a dynamic, energetic and fun city, being downtown is where its at. The vibe one gets from being on the Eastside is truly unique. There is so much to do just within walking distance or a short drive. UT games, SXSW, Austin City Limits Festival, Zilker Park, 6th street, Congress Avenue, Town Lake, and so much more.

What makes this house unique

The Texas State Cemetery is just a stone's throw away. This is not a traditional cemetary in any way. It is more a park with a pond, rolling hills and lush landscaping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sharon's home is beautiful and wonderfully located. Coffee on the back porch and the beautiful Victorian architectural details were highlights. Check-in and out was easy, and Sharon offered great recommendations on yummy places to eat in the area. Pictures shown are exactly what the house looks like and more. Next time I'm in Austin, I don't want to stay anywhere else.

Awesome house and location. Lots of space and a great Victorian

  • 5 of 5

We came down for business and stayed over to tour Austin. Great city and the house was perfect for us. We could spread out in the house and do our work as well as space for privacy. Full kitchen and lots of living spaces. Love the location. Lots of restaurants around the house and bars. East side is really cool. There are local artist and so much things to do. We were close to convention center and easy to get there.

Had great time in Austin and this house

  • 4 of 5

We planned a girls trip for a long time and wants to come to Austin. Being downtown was important to us so this location was perfect. The house is beautiful with complete furniture and kitchen stuff. Lots of towels, shampoo, and other things you normally get in a hotel. We could walk to take a short ride to any of the awesome restaurant or bars. Its a vibrant location with a great vibe.

Great house, everything as pictured

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit in Austin, loved the house and location. Tons of restaurants just within walking distance. You can walk downtown and to Rainey street if you like. We rented bikes just down the street from the house and rode to the lake. We had enough room in the house to spread out. There is a huge back yard for added space. No issues.

GREAT LOCATION, BAD AIR CONDITION, DISH TOWELS AND TOWELS NOT CLEAN.

  • 3 of 5

PLENTY SLEEP SPACE, PLENTY DISHES, NEEDED BLUE DRY STUFF FOR DISH WASHER. DIRECTIONS EASY TO FOLLOW. MICE HAD TRIED TO MAKE NEST IN ONE OF PILLOWS. THE LOCATION WAS INDEED GREAT.

TOWELS WADDED UP AND SO WERE HAND TOWELS. VERY LITTLE HAND SOAP. THE PHARMACY WAS A GREAT BREAKFAST RESTAURANT AND IN WALKING DISTANCE. SHORT CAB FARES FROM POPULAR STREETS.

LANDLORD WAS VERY NICE.

This property is located by the historic Texas Cemetary Park. This park is like no other with a pond, amazing landscaping and a true memorial to our Texas Heros. Jump on over to 12th Street and sample some Nationally Acclaimed Franklin BBQ, heralded by Bon Appetit as the 'best BBQ in the US'.
