Located in Central Austin, and a SHORT walk to the Metro Rail which drops you off in the center of downtown, our home is an updated 4 bedroom/2 bath home.
The patio area provides a great place to enjoy the Austin evening breezes and enjoy a nice chat while grilling dinner. A wooden swing set provides opportunity for play at the back of the yard. Or, if you prefer the front, enjoy sitting in 50's style bright red metal lawn chairs on the front porch.
Room #1 Separated from the other three bedrooms, the large master bedroom is off the living room and includes a comfy King bed plus huge windows that overlook the covered garden patio.
Room #2 has a queen bed. There is only one point of egress because this room has no windows. It makes for a long night of dark sleep!
Room #3 has a Full bed and the soft yellow walls are soothing for the soul! There is a trundle that can be pulled out for another person.
Room #4 has a new queen bed This is the second largest room in the house with desk and huge window.
The last sleeping spot is a queen sleeper sofa in the den.* This is new and is now substituted for the brown sofa pictured.
The second bath has a garden whirlpool tub, great for a long soak at the end of a busy day!
A large laundry room is also available for your use.
There is space for 4 cars in our double driveway and one spot on the street in front of our home.
Our home provides a respite from the noisy fun of local concerts and nightlife but is close enough to the lively downtown area that you'll experience the best of both worlds!

I love woodworking, swimming, reading, and playing. Chris teaches writing at Texas State University. We live in Austin, Texas and love it here. We seem to somehow travel quite a bit these days. We love having people stay at our home and getting to know new people from around the world. When we visit new places we like to find the local scene as much as the tourist attractions.
