About the property

I bought this house in January of 1998 - just as the neighborhoods around downtown Austin were experiencing a true renaissance. The home was purchased from the daughter of the original owner and I've done my best to stay true to the 1940's styling (with a few modern updates, of course). In June of 2008 I moved a bit further north but decided to keep this house. We enjoy it on open weekends and someday hope to retire here.

The house is built into a hill and is single story in the front but has a second story on the back. The main floor has two good-sized bathrooms and two bedrooms - one with the bath en suite. There's a bright kitchen that overlooks the deck and back yard. The comfortable living room looks out on the tree-lined boulevard. There's a large picture window and in Travis Heights - always something to look at. The french doors in the dining room open onto a 200 sq ft elevated deck with stairs leading to the back garden. On the lower floor you'll find the third and largest bedroom. There's also a laundry room with a high-efficency washer and dryer.
