A delightfully pleasurable experience in the tradition of
"Keeping Austin Weird".
This secluded duplex is located at end of cul-de-sac, nestled in trees and greenbelt, and West Bouldin creek winds around the property, tucking it away from the rest of the neighborhood. Having that space imitates the feelings of being in the country. It is the best of both worlds because you have the convenience of easy access to events and attractions but in addition a peaceful tranquil haven to relax and unwind.
