Lovely light-filled garage apartment in vibrant East Austin

You'll feel like you're in a tree house in this newly-built (fall 2017) separate entrance furnished garage apartment! Within the kitchen is a two-burner cooktop, combo micro/convection oven, and small apartment fridge (but no freezer). The bathroom has a shower/tub while other amenities include a queen size bed, split central air/heating, keypad entry, and Wi-Fi. Owner works at The University of Texas at Austin. Walking distance to restaurants, shops, bars, live music on nearby East 11th, East 7th and East 6th streets. Willing to loan use of a bicycle/helmet/lock. There’s proximity and walking convenience to two bus routes (CapMetro.org), specifically routes 6 and 18. The apartment is a 20-minute walk to the university, which is 1 to 1.5 miles away. The apartment has an internal staircase and receives natural light from all directions. I've lived here since 2001. It’s in an urban neighborhood that has been undergoing gentrification. I want to be forthcoming that my next door neighbor squats on his brother's property. We've lived alongside each other for more than 10 years. I share since some people may not be comfortable with that, which I understand. I appreciate the vibrancy of East Austin and its proximity to the university and downtown. The apartment is free of a permanent resident; thus, the living space is sparse, open, inviting and comes without a resident’s possessions and clutter!

About Me
I work in an academic research library that serves scholars internationally. I appreciate traveling to both urban and rural settings, and enjoy taking advantage of the outdoors, area culture and arts, cuisine and history. There are too many places that I want to see; thus, I'm truly open to exchange ideas.
