The 'River Bungalow' lot is high on the bank with the best views from 3 giant decks overlooking the Colorado River. 2 miles from Downtown Bastrop Shops, Restaurants, Fisherman's Park, SUP/Kayaking/tubing, Riverwalk, & <35 minutes to Airport/Austin. River Bungalow's interior is finished w/ salvaged farmhouse finds, industrial shiny fixtures, a chef kitchen & roomy bath w/ claw foot tub & washer/dryer! 2 big screened-in porches for your bug-free enjoyment or yoga (best on the decks overlooking the River)! River Bungalow is for couples, solo adventurers & business travelers wanting Class A ambiance!
The hope is that this is a River Bungalow of rest, fun, adventure, rejuvenation, and/or romance for you! It was over a year for my contractor to remodel with a lot of passion and talent in the details. I salvaged old 1800's farm houses and mixed it with modern design. There is big style in the small footprint! It is super comfy with spray foam insulation everywhere you can't see, and central heat/air. After the gutters went up, it was 'time to put it up for a short term rental', so everyone could enjoy it. So, 'ENJOY'!
The house and lot are yours to use and roam during your stay. The lot backs up to a steep slope to the river. There are 3 amazing tiered decks (climbing stairs necessary) to head towards the River. Access to the river is currently restricted from the bottom deck, until passage is a lot safer. We can talk about that. Bring the kayaks, however, as there is Fisherman's Park boat ramp less than 2 miles away.
The garage is the owner's personal storage space. There is outside parking available for up to 2 cars. With up to 4 people staying, over 3 people is charged an additional fee.
I also just want to be clear that some may find the bathroom arrangement a little less private than desired. Though off of the Master Bedroom, the bathroom doesn't have a separate door into the main house or into the 2nd bedroom. I just wanted you to be clear on that in case you change your mind. Otherwise, it is so totally worth staying there!!!
The outside fencing, gates, decks and landscaping is still 'under construction' but should be further along when you stay.
There is a train that ambles by every so often. I like it, but it may rumble a bit too loud for some. There is a crossing about 1/3 of a mile away, so you will possibly hear a horn. I just want to let you know, in case that isn't for you. Otherwise, it is fun to watch it go by, when you aren't watching the river roll.
I'll be sending some driving directions etc to you, if you want to move forward. Please let me know if you have any special needs or requirements. I'll be happy to try to help you out. There is so much to do in the Bastrop area, and I'm sure you'll have a blast, and be comfortable at River Bungalow. It is a cool place. :-)
I live 3 doors down from River Bungalow. If you need anything, all you need to do is text or call me. Even if it is a 'remote control' issue, I'll try to help! lol!
We are river people! Rather eclectic neighborhood, but we share the love of the river. :-)Get the full listing »
