Although not widely known, there are a small number of private town homes on Congress Avenue between 8th street and the Capital. They are well hidden — when you walk by you would never know that these buildings are private residences. If you have $6 million, if you want to live downtown but need more space than the largest condos, and if you don’t want to share your rooftop lawn and pool, this is the way to go.
811 North Congress is a 8,425 historic building near the Austin Museum of Art (AMOA) on Congress between 8th and 9th street. Although built in 1873, the building has been completely renovated for residential use with a cool, modern design. And since it is a historic building, the property taxes are discounted. The building is situated on 0.09 acres and contains 4 bedrooms with 5 full baths and 3 1/2 baths.
