Spacious 3/2 East Austin Home

With 1,600 square feet, a large open plan kitchen and living room, and big shady backyard, our home in the heart of east downtown Austin is the perfect place for your research leave or writing retreat. We have three bedrooms, one office (which can double as a fourth bedroom) and two bathrooms.

The house comes fully furnished with everything you need, including:
- Master bedroom with King Size Bed and ensuite bathroom,
- Guest bedroom with Queen Size Bed and desk,
- Kids bedroom with Twin Bed,
- Office overlooking the backyard (equipped with a desk and printer),
- Large "cook's" kitchen with stainless steel appliances, fully equipped for gourmet feasts,
- Full size washer and dryer,
- 2 full bathrooms (both with tubs),
- Central Air and Heat.

Our neighborhood is both kid and grownup friendly. We are six blocks from the notorious east side bar district, and one mile from downtown proper. There are two great weekend farmers markets close by (one within walking distance and one downtown). There is a great coffee shop around the corner and several excellent restaurants nearby. Everything is bikeable.

Lastly, we are only 2 blocks away from one of the best public elementary schools in Austin (Blackshear Elementary Fine Arts Academy).

We hope our sabbatical can be a great one for you, too!

About Me
My husband and I live in Austin with our young daughter. We travel regularly, rock climbing and bicycle touring being among the main reasons for our trips. Dylan is a software developer and I recently sold my landscaping company to pursue other interests. We enjoy dinner parties, star gazing, and swimming holes.

Leslie's Peoples Street house is an East Austin haven of comfort and space; and Leslie and husband Dylan are incredible hosts - welcoming, generous and accommodating.

My partner and I initially planned to stay for three months and ended up staying for a year as Leslie and Dylan travelled with their young daughter around the US.

Communication to arrange our stay before we arrived in the US and to extend while they were on the road, as well as managing an occasional unforeseen problem was always effortless, super-friendly and responsive.

The house is spacious, well appointed and equipped with absolutely everything you need to live comfortably. The yard and gardens gave us space to enjoy the uniquely Austin patio lifestyle - indeed the front porch became our second living room!

Our move to Austin, and our choice to stay is credit to Leslie and Dylan and the wonderful Peoples Street community who together have made our new life in Texas a total success!
