Travis Heights is the first neighborhood south of downtown Austin. It's a tree-filled urban retreat near the vibrant buzz of South Congress (SoCo).

This property is located only 2.5 blocks from South Congress, on a quiet, tree-lined street.
Nearby are great restaurants like Perla's, Vespaio, Home Slice Pizza, Jo's Coffee and Hopdoddy's, as well as the Continental Club. Walk to both Stacy Park and Big Stacy Pool, a wonderful place to swim laps or just jump in. Downtown is a short cab/bus ride away (3 minutes) or a pleasant walk (15-20 minutes).

We have covered parking for 1 vehicle + free parking on street.
