Architectural gem with midtown location close to University

Austin, Texas, United States
Rates from USD $2490 | Monthly

House | Entire Home | House Sitting Negotiable
Available Dates:
From August 18, 2024 until May 31, 2025


Contemporary house with an industrial architectural vibe and brilliant natural light. The house is centrally located in Austin's midtown area with easy access to all Austin has to offer and only three miles to the University of Texas. This house has a touch of Mediterranean design with some Texas flair. We enjoy the area as it is amazingly close to all of the great things about Austin. The house has three bedrooms including a guest room/office. The office is a perfect work space with large window, desk, Aeron chair, printer, shredder, sofa, television, and privacy--a perfect spot for your work and studies. The main living area has a ton of natural light from the two story tinted window with a leather sofa and streaming television. The gourmet kitchen has everything you'd need for daily meals or a nice dinner with friends including new gas stove/oven, quartz countertop, quiet dishwasher, high-end cookware, and stoneware dishes. The two bathrooms have walk-in showers with large shower heads and a soaking tub in the main bathroom along with tankless water heater for all your hot water needs. Because it is a second home, it has a lot of little extras that won't be found in a generic rental. Need some birthday candles? They're in the kitchen. Need an extra toothbrush? Yes, we have that. Want to make a big meal? We have you covered with a provisioned kitchen. Want to make waffles or ice cream--yep, we have those appliances too! Looking for something specific? Please let us know and we'll see how we can accommodate it. Since it is a part time residence, there will be a couple storage bins here and there and a couple of locked closets. There is a detached one car garage and shed on the property we use for storage that will not be available to guests. Please let us know what you would like to know about the house, property, and neighborhood.
