About this listing
This renovated 1960s ranch house - located approximately 10 minutes (5 miles) from downtown Austin - is a terrific home base for any visitor.
Spacious, renovated 1960s ranch house with large living room, fantastic sun room, 2 dining areas, fully equipped kitchen, laundry with washer/dryer, large shaded backyard, cable TV (in living as well as the guest suite), and wireless internet throughout the house.
Guests enjoy a private bedroom (queen bed) with ensuite bath as well as all shared living areas of the home described above: living room, sun room, kitchen, laundry, backyard. Single space in the garage is available to guests or (as some guest prefer) there is easy driveway or street parking.
Interaction with Guests
Common areas of the home are shared with me and my dogs. I work from home, and can be around the house a lot.
The neighborhood - called Windsor Park - was developed in the 1950s and '60s, and no other Austin neighborhood is changing as rapidly. It's a quiet/tranquil location but still close to major thoroughfares and only 5 miles (10 minutes driving or 30 minutes by public transport) from downtown Austin. Nearby amenities (restaurants, pubs) within Windsor Park and several adjacent hoods are described in a welcome packet that's provided to guests.
Other Things to Note
If interested, the entire home (not shared) is also available for periods of 1 week or longer. Inquire if interested.
Guests are expected to treat the home (and its furnishings) with respect. Smoking is not permitted in the house and pets are only allowed on a case-by-case, pre-approved basis.
