Perfect for families!
115C Nellie House: tranquil 1930's bungalow nestled in the vibrant heart of Austin's South Congress District. Steps from Austin landmarks like Jo's, Continental Club, and Guero's, but secluded enough for a quiet night on the terrace. Truly unique retreat in the center of it all.
The house is tucked away on a private residential street in South Congress, the trendy neighborhood just over Lady Bird Lake from downtown Austin. Steps away are chic boutiques, restaurants and one of Austin’s oldest and most storied music halls, the Continental Club.
A few feet (meters) from the Cap Metro No. 1 stop at South Congress and minutes by foot from Zilker Park, Auditorium Shores, downtown, the State Capitol, the Austin Convention Center--everything the city has to offer is at your doorstep.
Compact but comfortable, the house retains the charm of the original 1930s design with 10-foot ceilings, New Deal-era millwork, and original wood floors, but it also boasts all of the comforts and amenities you would expect at home: Wi-Fi, sound system, laundry room, and a chef's kitchen. There are also small surprises that belie the taste of the owners as well: vintage and modern furniture, cool art, plenty of books on design, poetry, design, and music, and lots of vinyl LPs.
The secluded outdoor terrace behind the house faces a rock wall created by the natural fault line that runs behind the house, a perfect place for cocktails before (or after) exploring the city.
The master bedroom occupies the terrace-facing corner of the house and features a king-sized bed with monogrammed sheets, while the second bedroom features two twin beds and faces east, with a view of the city just outside.
