2BR/1BA South Congress Dream - Steps from everything the city has to offer

Located in: Austin
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.

Please contact via email to inquire about availability for any dates or if you have additional questions.

In the heart of 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.

A list of only a handful of the nearby attractions and restaurants includes:

Jo's Coffee

Continental Club

Hotel San Jose


Lucy in Disguise

Yard Dog

Uncommon Objects



American Apparel

Elizabeth Street Cafe


la Barbeque, etc

Austin's central bus lines, the No. 1, No. 5, and No. 7, all have regularly scheduled stops at the bus stop located a few feet from the house on South Congress.

Taxis regularly travel up and down Congress and are easy to flag; they also schedule semi-regular pick ups at the nearby hotels (Hotel San Jose, Austin Motel, Kimber Modern, St. Cecilia, etc).

Bicycles are available for rent by-the-day from the Austin Bicycle Company at the Austin Motel.
