This modern house is located in the highly coveted Mueller neighborhood with 2 pools, running trails/parks, grocery store, Sunday farmer's market, and over 20 restaurants. It's versatile location works well for any Austin stay- close to downtown, Univ of Texas campus, and just a 2 min walk to downtown bus line. Enjoy having first floor all to yourself with this perfect guest setup which provides optimal privacy and a peaceful place to rest.
Our home has a contemporary design and unique layout. It's located in a modern, eco-friendly neighborhood, surrounded by running trails/parks and just a few miles from downtown Austin. The open floor plan and outside sitting areas provide for a fantastic place to relax during your Austin stay.
We like to think of first floor as the guest wing, since it is a private space separate from the main living area. First floor includes your bedroom, your own full bathroom, and a sitting area with French doors that lead to our peaceful patio/yard. The bedroom has a very comfortable bed-- Queen size mattress with a new 4" memory foam topper.
Of course, you will also have access to the second floor shared area. The spacious kitchen, living room, a half bathroom and laundry are on the second floor (as well as our bedroom+bathroom). The TV is a 50" HDTV with BluRay player and Roku streaming player (we have 100's movies and TV shows to watch). The kitchen has new appliances and is full of cooking utensils if you'd like to prepare meals.
The whole house has WIFI and wired internet. You are certainly welcome to use our new washer/dryer. There are two lovely lakes nearby and 13 miles of walking/running nature trails which connect immediately in front of our home. Parking will not be a problem as we have ample street options. We are just three blocks from our two beautiful neighborhood pools, which are open May 31st - October 31st (free & private, have lap lanes). We keep a very tidy home and are relaxed, easy-going people. We have one friendly adult cat who most people think is awesome.
DINING: Half a mile away sits a wonderful bar/restaurant called 'Contigo' that serves delicious craft cocktails and fabulous food. Just beyond that are several local cafes, coffee shops, and restaurants unique to Austin. If you like familiarity, there are a variety of chain options 1.5 miles away: Starbucks, Chipotle, Which Wich, Papa Johns, Jamba Juice, Pad Thai, as well as Target and Walgreens) and again, the huge new grocery store is less than a mile away, complete with it's own cafe/coffee shop with many beers on tap. Our development also hosts a large Farmer's Market on Sundays from 10am-1pm with over 40 vendors and several food trucks.
TRANSPORT: Just two blocks from our house is the Route 20 (Manor/Riverside) bus stop which will easily take you right into Downtown and alleviate worries about parking. Ride Austin (URL HIDDEN) is the best of the local apps which replace Uber/Lyft. RideAustin is a non-profit rideshare built for the Austin community. RideAustin has the exact same interface as Uber app, and will be very familiar if you're used to that app. There are other 3 alternative apps, but they don't work as well, and are more expensive. Austin does not have Uber/Lyft.
We really are in a prime location:
.9 miles from large, new HEB grocery store
2 miles from University of Texas campus
3 miles from Downtown Austin (SXSW)
6 miles Zilker Park (ACL Festival location)
8 miles from AUS International Airport
