We met in Switzerland when I was 17 and he was 23. After years of traveling the world individually and living abroad, we reconnected in Portugal, first and then Paris. How can you not fall in love in Paris? We moved to Barcelona and he finished his Masters in Architecture while I finished mine in Environmental Sciences. After a few years it felt like time to move back to the United States to make a home. First we tried NYC but found that Austin was the right fit of New York quality food, Barcelona funky and Austin originality.
After a year of learning the different areas of Austin, we were fortunate to find this stunning property in the East Austin Holly Neighborhood that we had our eye set on. Garden street is located on a hill right before the land dips down to the flood plains before the lake. Because of that, our house is propped up on the hill and takes advantage of the stunning sunset and tree canopies of the flood plain.
Living abroad, we wanted an area like Holly where we could take advantage of walking to our favorite restaurants, bars and corner stores. We also love the parks, springs, outdoor adventures and of course- culinary delights. The climate makes it easy to play outside all day and enjoy a BBQ or beer watching an amazing Austin sunset.
