Why Mark Feist chose Austin

This property is in Aldridge Place between the university and Hyde Park. It was Austin's first planned development with many of the homes designated as historic. One of the most notable features is Adams / Hemphill Park that runs through it's center. The history of Adams-Hemphill Park dates to 1912, when Lewis Hancock (1856-1920) donated more than two acres along Hemphill Creek for use as a park. Hancock, who served as mayor of Austin from 1895-1897, was an influential figure at the turn of the twentieth century. Developer of the Austin Country Club and the namesake of Hancock Center, Lewis Hancock donated the land for Hemphill Park when he began selling tracts of land in the Aldridge Place neighborhood in 1912.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has been restored to it's original state other than the addition of new carpet, electricity, and plumbing. It has all the original built ins, windows, kitchen and bath tile. This neighborhood enclave is unique in Austin and a pleasure to explore while strolling the park.

Apt was just as described! Quaint and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Mark meet us when we arrived and was very nice. All instructions were typed and easy to follow i.e. Tv, air conditioning etc. Parking in the carport made it easy since it was limited on the street. The location was just far enough from campus but close enough to walk many places. Both Trudys and Spider house were a short walk through a beautiful neighborhood. Guadalupe road had lots of shopping too. We had a wonderful visit and loved the apartment. Thanks Mark

Cute apartment

  • 4 of 5

We were generally happy with the accomodations, though because it was so cold while we were there we had a bit of a hard time keeping the rooms warm. The bed was extremely comfortable and the kitchen worked for our purposes.

Great Location in Austin, Nicely furnished apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was located just a few blocks north of the University and a block off the main north/south roadways making it very convenient for our stay. The apartment was nicely furnished, clean and comfortable with enough of the kitchen facilities to accommodate our needs. The location was quiet and parking on the street was convenient and no problem during or stay. Though we didn't meet Mark, our host, he was responsive to our emails and text messages to let us know how to access the apartment upon arrival and to answer the few questions we had. The only issue we had was the TV reception was not very good. Considering it was election week, that was probably a plus. We would definitely stay here again.
