Situated harmoniously among original turn-of-the-century, mid-century modern and contemporary homes, 203 Leland speaks to the eccentric and evolved history of Travis Heights. Originally established in the 1870’s, Travis Heights is Austin’s premier and most exclusive urban community offering unbeatable access and views of Downtown Austin. Tucked behind twisted heritage oaks and towering pecan trees, 203 Leland was developed out of J.M. Swishers Addition in 1877. At the time called the ‘The Village of South Austin’.

Located in 78704, one block from South Congress Avenue, you’ll be able to walk or bike to the SoCo scene where you can shop along Music Lane, dine at famed Guero’s taco bar or slurp oysters at Perla’s, dance at The Continental Club and stroll the many vintage shops celebrating South Austin’s art and cultural scene every First Thursday of the month. Each year South by Southwest ignites the Avenue in culture, live music and art.

Leland features an opportunity to live in the essence of historical significance all the while benefiting from the modern day benefits of a multi-dwelling residence. The folk Victorian main house, built in 1900, provides plenty of room for several to live comfortably and the detached guest home, built in 1947, expands the option for mortgage subsidy through traditional rental, short term type-1 rental or simply a place to work from home and bring in additional family generations. The third acre lot features privacy fencing, shade trees, a pool with indoor cabana, a motor court from one driveway and a double carport from a second driveway.

A short walk out the front door drops you at one of Austin’s few remaining moon towers which provided electric light to Big Stacy Park and Pool, built in 1930. Meander along Blunn creek and Stacy Greenbelt to the many remaining historic structures and residences of Travis Heights and Fairview Park.

Featuring architectural details from the Folk Victorian era. You’ll delight in the old world luxury of wood floors, ornate casement finishes, and millwork. An updated kitchen offers abundant prep and cooking space, a 6-burner Viking range and 12’ ceilings that reach into the upper loft. The primary bedroom and ensuite bathroom welcomes beautiful afternoon light and privacy at the back of the home. Cast Iron wood burning fireplaces warm both the lower and upper living areas. Plenty of room for several to live as well as expanded living or working space in the detached guest house. A newly renovated pool cabana features a Treager smoker, butcher block bar and smart TV. A perfect space to enjoy games on the weekend while dipping in the pool.

Leland extends the option to live and work as an owner occupant or as an investor to reap the benefits of two residences to be used either as traditional rentals or short term type-1 rental.
