Why Kids Love it

The residence has plenty of toys, games, and books for children under 12. Kids will love the space to run, play and swim, and the kids bedrooms, set up with desk space, toys, books and more, right beside the games room. There are 3 parks nearby, including Zilker Park, easily reached by bike, and Lake Austin is a 5-minute walk away. Kids can have fun on the trampoline and cool off in the swimming pool, have lunch or dinner outside next to a turfed area perfect for playing. A pool table converts to a ping pong table for family tournaments. Inside, there is an Xbox and large TV in the game room, plus a baby grand piano so the kids are still able to keep up with music practise on their trip.

One of our greatest loves is traveling. And now that our children are old enough, we are excited to have them along. We have traveled and lived all over the world and look forward to continuing to explore. We are real estate developers based back in our hometown of Austin, Texas. Our greatest loves are our children, travel, music, art, food and wine, vintage (him) and barely street legal (her) Porsches, chess, running, mountain biking, yoga and Pilates and long walks in interesting places. Despite being a family of five, we travel pretty simply and neatly. We are non-smokers with no pets.

The live music capital

Where better to introduce your kids to live music than in Austin, Texas? The summer sees an instrument petting zoo at Childrens Day Art Park, where they can test out some tunes on what they see, all run by Austin Symphony Orchestra, along with open air concerts of all description. Long hot summers are the norm, and the area’s natural hot springs and pools, and the city's sprinkler parks, are the perfect place to cool off. Nature lovers will enjoy peach picking, hiking nature trails and coming across the real live footprints of dinosaurs in creeks. When dusk falls, watch the bats at Congress Avenue Bridge. It’s an alternative take on nightlife, but that’s Austin...
