About our home

This beautiful 1930's home, made of solid Texas limestone, was completely updated (down to the studs!, all systems, windows, kitchen, bathrooms, etc. brand new). It features lovely wooden floors throughout, windows all around so it is flooded with light, soaring ceiling in the living room, an open plan kitchen with island and stainless steel appliances, lovely marble bathrooms, a picturesque tree-filled lot, back deck overlooking Waller Creek and the large garden ... plus proximity to everything due to its central location in a lovely neighborhood.

Enormous master bedroom suite on the ground floor; 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs along with ground floor powder room. Study at the front of the house. Open plan living room with vaulted ceiling and fireplace, open plan kitchen and dining rooms.

2 minute walk to Hancock Golf course (9 hole public course) - great for non-golfers for a run or power walk; minutes to Hyde Park with its cafes, restaurants and neighbourhood pool/playground/tennis courts, minutes to the UT Austin campus.

Austin is the hip and happening capital of Texas. The University of Texas at Austin campus - less than a mile from our house - is home to over 50,000 students so injects a superb, youthful buzz to town, as does the major music and sporting scenes. Not to be missed - "Town Lake" (Lady Bird Lake) hike and bike trail, Zilker Park, Sixth Street (restaurants, cafes, bars where you can wander and enjoy the nightlife and music), the beautiful State Capitol, the "bat" bridge across the Colorado River, the BBQ, Tex-Mex, etc. at Austin's many, many restaurants, taco stands, gourmet trailers, cafes, bakeries and smoothie places.

Austin is our home town though our main residence is in London, UK. We will be happy to provide tips on local restaurants, etc.
