Art-zen Urban Hideout with Bikes!

Located in: Austin
Funky older home sporting good bones and local art seeks zen, happy people to honor and appreciate. Quintessential Austin plus 2 bikes. Simple. Easy. Close. Nature meets culture in this artsy, private getaway.

Enjoy your coffee on the porch with birds, squirrels, trees in a pecan grove. Bike or walk to breakfast tacos, dining, art, music, nightlife. Or cook, hang out, dine in with a spacious full kitchen and comfy living room. Supermarket, UT, the Capital, downtown all 1 mile away.

When you're not zipping around on the bikes I've provided, you'll enjoy the house. It has tons of natural light. Space for hanging inside or out. Perched on stilts and set back off the street, it looks out over a large undeveloped and open pecan grove to the north, and east through the Boggy Creek Greenbelt. The house is older and unpretentious, but clean with nice windows that open to a beautiful breeze, and a spacious feel in the kitchen, living, bath and bedrooms. There's new tile in the bath, and a kitchen remodeled from recycled Habitat for Humanity cabinets. Its also funky and a little twisted (literally) as it was built in the 40s by a working class, build-as-you-earn, and possibly squatter family. Very representative of the area, simple, quiet and quite comfortable. Sit on the balcony to hear occasional roosters crow in the distance or watch the occasional light rail creep by quietly across the street, pulling the past and future into a single space. The neighborhood is very diverse, in transition and fast becoming gentrified.

Guest access
My place is about a half mile to a mix of native and/or trendy eats. TexMex abounds- roll yourself into a cheap plate of enchiladas and practice your Spanish, or swank into the newer eat-and-drinkeries like the Dog n Duck Pub, Gourmands, Blue Dahlia Bistro or Hillside Pharmacy. Or mindmeld with your laptop at Fleet coffee. Walk or ride bikes (2 provided!) and explore neighborhoods, glide down to Ladybird lake and Festival Beach, or prowl around the whole "dirty 6th" east side nouveau bar scene about a 15 minute walk away. Local theater on 12th is also a great outing!

Interaction with guests
I live in the neighborhood and would be happy to meet you, though also will respect your sacred vacation/travel space. As an Austin native who loves the city and knows it well I'm happy to give you lots of pointers on things to do. Just ask! And if you find yourself needing anything please let me know and I will be happy to stop by.
