About Ted Siff & Janelle Buchanan
We’re Ted, a publisher and parks advocate, and Janelle, a homemaker and actress, and we’ve each called Austin home for over 40 years. We know the neighborhoods, fun spots and beautiful places that make Austin so special, and can answer all your questions about where to find the best margarita, bat viewing, natural swimming hole, barbecue and special night out dining. Interested in music, dance, theatre, or museums? We can guide you to those venues as well.
Ted Siff & Janelle Buchanan purchased this House in 2004
Why Ted Siff & Janelle Buchanan chose Downtown
We both chose Austin to go to U.T. But we each chose Austin again to live, work and raise our family. We have grown up as Austin has. Austin is sophisticated but never snooty. You can find world class restaurants and bars, and you can wear your jeans and boots to visit them if you like. Just about any cuisine you prefer is available somewhere in the city, from Tex-Mex to Ethiopian. You can enjoy popular music at the hundreds of clubs around Austin as well as at the top-of-the-line Austin City Limits studio, not to mention the Austin Symphony and Austin Lyric Opera. Oh, and all those festivals: ACL, SXSW, Fun Fun Fun Fest, Moontower Comedy Festival, F-1 racing, and more. If you’re up for a drive, you’re just over an hour away from the Texas Hill Country, with its wineries, beautiful scenery, and German heritage. (Or go an hour east and check out central Texas’ old Czech communities. Have a kolache! Visit the Spoetzel Brewery in Shiner which, during Prohibition, stayed in business by producing near beer plus just a little of the regular kind for “medicinal purposes.”) Diverse? You bet. Friendly? Very.
What makes this House unique
The 11 Oaks Townhouse and its companion, 11 Oaks Suite, are in just about the perfect location – downtown, blocks from some of Austin’s best restaurants and clubs, and walking distance to UT and the Darrel Royal Memorial Stadium, gorgeous hike and bike trails, and great shopping. Because of its proximity to all this plus the Capitol, the Austin Convention Center and the Rio Grande campus of Austin Community College, the neighborhood is bustling during the day but quiet at night. The townhouse is comfortable, warm and welcoming.

Great location with free parking. We were able to get to campus and 6th Street very easily. House is very clean and has up to date furnishings. The rooftop patio is awesome. Has a lot of usable space for the square footage. We would definitely book again. Thanks Ted and Janelle!
Location, location, location
Great place to stay if you are going to UT or downtown Austin. Everything is within walking distance and yet the home is on a quiet street with great ambience.
Besides Austin's many attractions, our property is an hour's drive from the Texas Hill Country, with its beautiful scenery, wineries, German and Czech heritage, the LBJ Ranch and Texas White House, and recreation opportunities such as Enchanted Rock. The Highland Lakes, where you can boat, fish and ski, are also only a short distance away. San Antonio is another possibility for a day trip; it's about 80 miles from Austin and has wonderful museums and restaurants and, of course, the Alamo and the Mission Trail. Visiting in the summer? Plan a day at Schlitterbahn, a huge water park, or tubing down the beautiful Guadalupe River followed by dinner and live music in Gruene.
