Ghost if you don't.

The dogs and I walk the property perimeter twice per day, otherwise you will probably not have to see us.

The Neighborhood

Originally a Dairy Farm, ours was the first home built in the area in 1966. It was later subdivided for the children of the builder, creating Walnut Place, an unincorporated section of Travis County enveloped by, but not part of, Austin, Texas.

We live in a quiet, mixed population (ethnicity, age, political, etc.) development on a greenbelt with pecan, cherry, peach, and fig trees.

Only 4 miles from Mueller District with everything from HEB grocery, Twin Liquors, Starbucks, Verts, Emergency Medicine, and and the cheapest gas in town at HEB!
NEW Le Madelaine French Cafe @ Mueller
NEW Alamo Draft House coming soon
NEW Gold Gym at Hwy290 & I-35 (also 4 miles)

Getting Around

If it's happening in Austin, you can get to it easily from our location.

Mueller District is 4 miles away (take a right from Springdale to 290 frontage road, and a left on Berkman to 51st), which gives you HEB groceries (latest flagship store) with the cheapest gas in town, Starbucks, Verts Kabaps (German Gyros), Twin Liquor, and more!

The "back way" to Downtown Austin from the Apartment is directly south on Springdale Road to Martin Luther King Blvd., which travels right into downtown. Eight minutes.

New Bus stops (line 323 at stop 5945) are being added along Highway 290E. This can connect to the light rail at Lamar Transportation Station and terminates at 4th Street downtown for festivals.

The Bus stops at Springdale on HWY290E, but then one half mile walk to the apartment.

We are on;
* The Republic of Texas (ROT) Rally gathering route
* Circuit of The Americas, Austin Executive Airport, and Austin Bergstrom Airport (AUS - ABIA) within 15 minutes
* US Highway 183, 290 (East), and I-35 within 4 miles
* 4 miles from Mueller Market District, Highland Plaza, and Capitol Plaza.
* Travis County Exposition Center, Walter Long Lake.

Being so close to highways leaves us with chain restaurants within 1 mile, with an amazing array of local and regional restaurants within 5 miles (please see our guidebook, and let us know if you discover a new local gem to pass on to other guests!).

Other Things to Note

We support equality, local sourcing, participate in local co-ops for energy, food, and self-sufficiency.

We operate an active Apiary on the property (Bee Hive). They are not in the Guest Area, and produce exquisite honey.

Seasonally available fruits, vegetables and herbs, tended by our bees, are available for your culinary exploration. Italian & Greek oregano, garlic chives, lemon thyme, rosemary, Italian parsley, sage always available.
