These homes are pretty to look at. Be advised that none are open to the public. Ok for a short stroll if you’re an architecture fan.

Beautiful houses around a conveniently located block in downtown Austin near the capitol. Only need to pay for metered parking. Slightly unfortunate that these are now all businesses

Parking is a bit tricky and there was lots of road work going on, but we did finally find a parking space. Walked around a few blocks and found some amazing homes. Had fun taking photographs. So happy they were able to preserve this area...More

Frankly, I was a little disappointed by the Bremond Block. The houses are nicely kept and beautiful to look out. However, this quick walk around the block only provided me about 15 minutes of entertainment. It took me longer to get there on the bus...More

If you are interested in architecture, definitely worth a stop. Parking on street and easy to walk around block to view all structures. Neighborhood is inviting. Gorgeous old oak trees can be viewed, too.
