Well located roomy home in Central Austin with huge yard

Lovely, furnished professors' home (renovated in 2011) on a shady double lot in Central Austin, near RapidMetro bus route that goes downtown and to UT. Good books, lots of color, light, wood, and warmth. House has three bedrooms, two studies (one on a second floor with a porch/balcony), two living areas, a mud room/laundry room, and a screened-in back porch that looks out onto large, fenced backyard with waterfall, pergola/patio, hammock, garden, and trees. House also has small front porch with bench and hammock swing. Floors are all hardwood except for kitchen, bathrooms and mud room/laundry room. Main room is large living room/dining room with gas stove/reading area, big, rustic dining room table and tiffany-style chandelier. Spacious kitchen with plenty of storage, dishwasher, new stainless steel Thor gas range and red formica 1950s table. Largest bedroom, with walk-in closet and queen-sized tempurpedic bed, leads to master bath, and this wing includes the two studies and is connected to the rest of the house through a breezeway with windows on both sides. Five-minute walk to bus and close to bike paths and safe bike routes to university or downtown. Walking distance from several coffee shops, public library, many good restaurants (plus foodtrucks), Amy's ice cream/Phil's Ice House, parks and playgrounds, pharmacy, grocery store, antique/thrift shops, and other boutiques. Friendly, safe, hip neighborhood with many walkable destinations. Zoned for excellent schools (Highland Park Elementary)...great home for a family or for a couple on sabbatical, visiting professor at UT, or folks relocating to Austin but not ready to buy.
