Located on a double lot under giant oak trees with private gated parking. Just 1.5 miles to convention center, 1.7 to ACL. Soco and so much more just a short walk. Stand alone converted garage with attached laundry and bath. Unique, private, funky and fun. The perfect spot to explore the best of Austin.
We use the room for a home theater, (pull down screen and projector) music practice and do our laundry "out there". Since its detached, its not used most of the time. The building is well insulated and very quiet, you have no close neighbors. The AC and Heat is a new split unit, works perfectly. Hot water is plentiful and almost instant . Couch bed is high quality with innerspring mattress and high density foam topper. The pillow top mattress with high density foam topper on the regular bed is very nice. New carpet, doors, sink, AC and wooden blinds, we never stop improving the space.
You are welcome to any spot on the property. Most folks spend time outside in the small private area just outside the greenroom, there is a table and chairs with a fire pot for cool evenings. We also have a pool, its above ground but 10000 gallons with a wood deck and private. We also have a trampoline and tree house but ask that these not be used due to liability.
