Hurry! Not much on the market! Avail July 22: Charming Travis Heights 4BR 4 full bath (yes, 4 bathrooms; 3 with tubs); all the fun of urban living but with more privacy: walk to South Congress, Rainey Street, or Downtown. Travis Heights embodies what makes Austin so cool...eclectic residents who like to live close to the arts scene, massive trees, & proximity to outdoor recreation.

Won't you consider this Jazz Age Craftsman with original wood floors and a large addition (the home is bigger than it looks from the street, approx 2660sf, with large windows and high ceilings). You, too, can live in the $1M+ home as you search for a home of your own.

Cool off in the saltwater plunge pool that also heats as a relaxing jetted spa.

Large kitchen with distinctive tile; expansive living area open to formal dining, and two masters (one up, one down shown here w/twin beds but can fit a king). Both masters have walk-in closets (again, rare for vintage homes).

Downstairs master has a large bathroom with dual sinks, a Jacuzzi soaking tub and separate shower.

Upstairs master has its own mini split to ensure comfort for all members of your household as well as a full bath with dual sinks.

Bedroom 3 has an ensuite full bath and fits a king bed.

Bedroom 4 has an ensuite full bath and fits a double bed or would make a good office set up w/Google Fiber.

Convenient to downtown, airport, South Congress, Lady Bird Lake, Stacy Park, Rainey Street, and much more. Steps to the Boardwalk: turn left to reach downtown on foot in about 25 minutes (you'll appreciate the cooling breezes from the lake) or turn right to reach the funky East Side.

Relax on the front porch of this tranquil street with vintage and upscale homes. Heritage trees filter the sun. Room to grow vegetables; sprinkler system. Kitchen boasts new stainless steel appliances and gas range w/convection oven. Storage galore. Includes refrigerator and front-loading W/D.

Oh, what fun you will have in this hip neighborhood. Sorry, no pets. Easy to view; shown by owner/agent.

Low utility costs; typical Texas Association of Realtors lease. A shorter-term lease may be negotiated for a higher rate. Easy application through Zillow.

  • Trulia User
    "This neighborhood is in high demand, Located just across Lady Bird Lake from Downtown Austin. This section of the lake will soon be accessed by a new boardwalk that will keep the many runners, walkers and joggers off of busy E. Riverside Drive. The neighborhood is walkable with S. Congress Ave close by for shopping, dining and nightlife options. Easy access to I-35 to get into or out of town."
  • Trulia User
    "Wonderful area close to downtown on high speed bus route. In the middle of SOCO with shops and restaurants just outside the door. Very close to Stacy Park. Area is safe and very walkable"
  • Trulia User
    "Travis Heights is an adorable neighborhood -- very stroll-able and close proximity to Downtown and some of Austin's weirdest and nicest restaurants and bars. Travis Heights Elementary is a prime school and received a GreatSchools Rating of 5 out of 10. Mature trees everywhere. Some will find the neighborhood a bit eclectic. "
