Property Information


This is your chance to live in a piece of Austin History. Located in Historic Hyde Park, one of Austin’s oldest, most revered and nostalgic neighborhoods. What was designed as an affluent Austin suburb in 1891 has transformed over generations into a heritage tree lined, centrally located neighborhood with charming turn-of-the-century Queen Anne and craftsman-styled homes.

If founder, Monroe Martin Shipe could see Hyde Park now he’d be so proud!

4008 Avenue C has been fully rehabbed from it’s original 1917 structure using Hyde Park Preservation Plan Guidelines to bring forth the historical significance of pre WWII era architecture all while addressing the functional necessities of a modern built home.

Original hard wood shiplap adorns the ceilings throughout this bungalow while modern geometric tiles and champagne brass fixtures highlight today’s trends in interior design. 

At over 2,300 sf, 4 Bedrooms and 3 Bathrooms this home will accommodate today’s family or today’s young professional. There is room to work from home and start or grow a family. Using scooters, ride share or public transit, you’ll be downtown in a flash. The award winning Mueller community is just 5 minutes away as well as University Medical, The University of Texas, Seton Medical Center and many prominent employers.

I hold Austin near and dear to my heart. I’ve watched the area bloom from a close-knit town to a bustling city since I was a child. While the cityscape has changed the feeling has not and that is why I love working with buyers to find their niche in the community. I enjoy working with homebuyers to make their home ownership dreams come true. I pride myself on making the process an enjoyable journey.

Through my tenure and experience, I can confidently guide my clients through the process of determining their desired neighborhood, understanding the market, negotiating and navigating the escrow process. I view the real estate transaction as a team sport so I work with experienced lenders, inspectors and title companies that I know will also facilitate an exceptional experience for my clients. I work with first-time and experienced home buyers, vacation home buyers, investors and sellers in residential needs. I look forward to helping you find your next home or investment property!
