Right by bars and downtown. You can ride your bike or borrow one from me. Industrial style meets midcentury in this "hipster" house. There is a 2nd story patio right outside your room. The full bath with double sinks is connected to the room (on suite).
Industrial Edison bulbs surround the yard, the kitchen back splash is made from real pennies, modern style room and bathroom. Wood and concrete floors. Misters on front porch to cool down during hot days/nights. Room humidifier, steamer for clothes, etc I also just added a TV to the room with all the movie channels and DVR.
Yard, industrial style kitchen with soap stone counters, penny walls, washer and dryer in mud room, 4 bikes for exploring, 2nd story balcony with a peak into downtown (harder to see when trees are lush). Custom couch and cable TV. Smokers are free to smoke outside.
I will be here to eat with, drink with, help out with projects, give all the insights to the coolest spots in Austin, and /or give privacy as well. I do work though so depending on when you stay, I may not be around much.
I have a dog but she loves to stay with her extended family if our guests prefer her not be here. She's extremely chill but does guard the house with her barking so I try to have her away usually just in case it annoys someone too polite to say anything. She is a lab/chow/german Shepard.
Just don't ruin stuff or go through personal belongings. Other than that- not worried about loud music, talking, tv, etc. I sleep through anything and moved downtown to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle. I don't expect quiet. PLEASE DONT LEAVE CIGARETTE BUTTS anywhere besides an ash tray. We don't want our dog accidentally eating one. She doesn't usually eat anything besides her food-just need the peace of mind:)Please do NOT lock bottom lock! I will get locked out. Only lock top lock. Please also close gates (because of dog AND it ruins the gates when they stay swinging).
I am a Realtor and small business owner. I am also a performer, event planner, artist, dancer, builder, art director, etc so I can usually offer a lot of insight on things to do here. I bought this house because it was in the heart of Austin and surrounded by like minded creatives. You can ride your bike to bars from here and never be bored.
