Cozy large studio 1 bedroom w/kitchen, bath. Cool 60's ledgestone veneer 4-plex on a creekside corner. Private parking upfront. Apt. has shed roof w/beamed ceilings, indirect lighting for a total period feel. Kitchen area has skylight, concrete counter .

The apartment is located in an area known as North Loop for the street that leads through it. On it is a small gauntlet of shops in a two block zone of a period known as early funk. Neon lights at night turn this into a carnival of restaurants, shops, bars; a magical experience any evening. Smoke a hookah back of Casbah/Phara's w/Eastern music, bellydancing.
There are several other great restaurants within walking/short drive past first area on Airport Blvd, major artery that leads to racetrack route on 4-6 lanes. Seafood, Mexican, gourmet burgers, pizza,sushi have revived this area. Lots of folks in the evenings for a great time.
Public transit is walking distance on North Loop. Epoch Coffee is open 24/7 and is famous; get a cup,breakfast taco and go!
Mueller Development is across I-35 @ 51st Street. It is a total green build of a former airport. It has restored prairie park with lakes, paths and family friendly setting. Many restaurants, shops and housing make up a winning multi use development.
Too much cool stuff in the area; Threadgill's on Lamar, where Janis Joplin started singing for home cooking and Sunday bluegrass brunch. Mmmm. Stiles Switch BBQ has rivaled Franklin's with no 2 hour wait. Blues on Friday nights early. Groovy Autmotive has Roky Erickson's Les Paul sculpture (bat themed) in front garden area with waterfall, Bouganvillea. Take a pic. Old Austin still abounds.
