ABOUT THIS HISTORIC BEAUTIFUL HOUSE:
You've heard of LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!...LUXURY! LUXURY! LUXURY!...correct?
Well, this house on 9th Street defines it al! Step into this house and walk on walnut antique floors, high
ceilings, and most of the furniture is from Neiman Marcus.
The house was built in 1910. This is why it is located in the heart of Austin, Texas. The neighborhood is recognized as 'Banker's Row' or 'The French Legation Museum area. The French Legation Museum is right across the street!
In the early 1900's all the banks were located right downtown Austin. In fact just walk across the street just like walking to visit a neighbor and tour the Oldest House in Austin, Texas built 171 years ago. It sits in side the French Legation Museum grounds.
This is how historic this area is. The bankers lived in this neighborhood and would walk or ride a horse and carriage to work.
The Vacation Rental House has approx.2500-2600 sq. ft. When you walk in the front door you step in to a beautiful big room. The room measures 41 feet x 21 feet., antique walnut floors, crown molding, 14 foot ceiling and a beautiful chandelier.
On the first floor in addition to the large 41'x 21' room there are two bedrooms with a full bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a utility room, a community 1/2 bath and and a breakfast table in the kitchen that sits four plus a tea room with a table that sits another four plus the dining room table that sits 8 more.
As you head upstairs to the 2nd floor you will find that the stairs are also made of antique walnut wood with a wrought iron rail. Upstairs you will find the master bedroom number 3, a full bathroom with a tub and a separate shower and bedroom number 4 and 5.
There are two sets of double doors that open up to an enclosed balcony from the master bedroom and the foyer. The balcony has
Every other window opens and you can feel the fresh breeze flow right thru (in the fall and spring). You have a view of downtown of the Capitol of Texas, The Hilton, The Sheraton, The Hilton Garden, the Austonian (tallest building), 360 Condos, Frost Bank Tower, and you can watch the sunset.
Imagine a vacation where you do not have to drive anywhere the entire time you are here. So much is within walking distance or if you choose to ride a $5.00 cab will get you downtown or call a pedi cab. The house is 1 minute from downtown and the Famous 6th Street they
will come pick you up for a donation.
Walk to to the famous Night Life right on E.6th Street, check out The Eastside District and you must find time to grab a beer and listen to every type of music that has every been written and sang at the Rainey Street District and just an 8 minute walk from your vacation rental.

About Amber Barnett
My name is Amber Barnett, I am the property manager of all three of the Artale's vacation rentals. I was born and raised in Austin, so I have watched our city grow tremendously over the years. I lived in New York City for 4 years and that was an amazing experience, but there is something special about Austin's laid back lifestyle that brought me home. I love this city and look forward to assisting you with your vacation. Please let me know if you need any suggestions on restaurants, bars, activities, shopping and more!
Amber Barnett purchased this house in 2006
Why Amber Barnett chose Austin
Our 3 vacation homes are located in the heart of Austin. Keep in mind these are big houses and NOT A CONDO! It is rare that you will find big vacation rental houses this close to downtown. This house has a special place in my heart because my bachelorette party was here and I stayed here on my wedding weekend!
The area is known for its eclectic patio bars, authentic taco stands, music, food and abundance of bicycles, East Austin is a hip hodgepodge of culture. This vibrant community is home to many types of people from artists and musicians to business owners.
What makes this house unique
This house was originally built in 1910 and was the home to the First African American Lawyer in Austin! It is located across from the French Legation Museum, which is where the French settled when arriving in Austin. The view from the second floor is to die for! You can see the whole Austin skyline night or day! The walk to downtown is just minutes away, or head over to East 6th Street and enjoy the eclectic bars and food trailers!
