Peaceful and Colorful East Austin Bungalow

Our charming and charismatic home in Central East Austin features colorful gardens front and back, several fruit trees, is close to downtown and public transportation, and has mosaics inside and out. Large windows, comfortable furniture, and wooden floors throughout!

Our home is an airy, 1950's cottage that boasts many windows, bright colors, and a spacious layout. There are beautiful gardens front and back (our yard is a registered wildlife habitat), a backyard deck and fire pit. We have hardwood floors throughout the house, a 5-burner chefs range for those that love cooking, and comfortable common spaces for relaxing and dining.

The home has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and an additional room that connects the kitchen and backyard, and that we use as a guest room and office. The bathroom is tiled, and is complete with a tub, shower, and generous storage. The master bedroom has a door that leads directly to the back deck. The house is surrounded by a privacy fence (with custom-forged iron gate) and secure gates. There is an auxiliary unit behind the house that is occupied by a quiet and friendly couple, and who share laundry facilities with the main house. They are responsible for maintaining the gardens in our absence (unless you love gardening too, in which case lets talk!).

You would have access to the driveway, which can comfortably hold 2 cars, and to the carport. We are two blocks from multiple bus lines, and a short walk from numerous cafes, restaurants, bars, and shops. We are also within easy walking distance of three playgrounds, and only two blocks from a swimming pool and splash pad (free and open to the public during the summer). We are a 15 minute drive (max) from several grocery stores, more parks, pools, and playgrounds, three farmers markets, and the Thinkery (our local childrens museum). I am able to walk from the house to my office at the University in 50 minutes, or ride my bicycle in 12 minutes. We are also only a 10 minute bike ride or 35 minute walk from the Texas State Capital building.

The house can come fully or partially furnished. We have a young child, and would be happy to leave infant/toddler toys and furniture, or to remove them completely for adult-only applicants.

About Me
We have lived in Austin now for about four years, and love it here. We met while working for the same conservation organization in the Peruvian Amazon. We very much enjoy traveling, cooking (and eating), meeting new people, and exploring neighborhoods here in Austin. We also enjoy camping and frequently head out for the weekend to explore the many nearby state and county parks. We are returning to Peru for a period of extended research and writing.
