I am a professor at the University of Texas at Austin and my family and I will be out of the country on sabbatical during the 23/24 academic year. Our house would be perfect for a faculty member with kids who will be visiting UT Austin. We would love to host a family from the U.S. or abroad who can enjoy our home while we are gone. We will keep the house furnished but remove all of our personal items. We can leave out toys, games, etc for your kids if desired to make it a comfortable stay for them.

We have a large main bedroom with a queen size bed, walk-in closet, and large en suite bathroom with separate water closet. We have a kids bedroom that has a twin bed with a trundle, a couch, and a large closet. Our guest bedroom has a queen size bed and these two bedrooms share a full bathroom off of the hallway. Our open living area has the living room, dining room, and kitchen with a large walk-in pantry. Off of the living room is a large office with built-in desks.

Our house was taken down to the studs and renovated in 2017 with all new plumbing, electrical, etc, so everything is new and in good working order - no need to worry about the older plumbing that causes problems for many houses in the area.

We are situated on a large corner lot so we have a lot more outdoor space than is typical in the neighborhood. We have a lot of outdoor play equipment, including a dome climber, trampoline, swing, and tetherball in the front or in the fenced in backyard. The sidewalk runs next to our house and will take you to the playground at the Rosedale school with a 5 min walk or the very large Northwest Park with a playground, pool, tennis courts, duck pond, etc with a 10 min walk.

The highly rated public elementary school is 1 mile away and you can walk all the way on sidewalks or bike on a protected bike lane. The public middle school is also 1 mile away and an easy walk or bike ride. We are happy to help you figure out schools for your kids and other administrative issues if needed.

From our house you can walk or bike to many restaurants from fast casual to very high-end. We are also very close to multiple bus stops that can take you directly to the UT main campus, downtown, or other places such as Q2 stadium for an Austin FC match.
