Calm, comfortable room in the back half of a separated duplex on a quiet street with your own renovated bathroom and shower area. Access to a new washer and dryer and cozy backyard deck with hammock and plenty of shade.
The house has an open floor plan with lots of light and access to a fridge and updated cooking area.
A few blocks from South Lamar with access to central bus lines running to downtown and the University of Texas. Relatively easy walking access to cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. Ten minutes from the legendary south Austin taco eatery, Maria's. (Click the MAPS tab above the photos to see list of great nearby attractions.)
The arched living room creates a feeling of openness and space, and getting a good night's sleep is easy with little surrounding traffic noise. It feels like you're out in the suburbs, holed away in this quiet neighborhood, despite being close to everything central (~3 miles to downtown; ~2 to Barton Spring Rd).
Because it's a quiet neighborhood and other houses are nearby, we assume no excessive late-night noise and respect to our friends and neighbors.
I'm a product manager at a research firm in downtown Austin. I've lived in the area about 15 years. I've got a lot of really supportive and wonderful friends and family members around the country, and I write plays and run races in my spare time.
