The Heart of Austin is the 78704 zipcode in South/Central Austin. The true, authentic Austin vibe emanates from the 78704 zipcode. For non-locals, the ’04 zip is the area of South Austin just south of downtown. It boasts the SoCo (South Congress District), Restaurant Row on Barton Springs Rd. Zilker Park, Barton Springs pool, the once cheap “laid back bohemian” but now chic/mixed neighborhoods of Travis Heights, Bouldin, Zilker, and Barton Hills, to name a just a few few.
Its northern boundary is Town Lake and the Congress Bridge, beneath which lies the home of our infamous bat population. It’s the home of Auditorium Shores, where Stevie Ray Vaughan and other famous artists have provided such great outdoor concerts along the south shore of Town Lake and framed by the backdrop of the downtown Austin skyline. I could go on. The ’04 zip is chock full of the essence of Austin. Steve and Sylvia lived in the ’04 for many years in the 1990s, and both our children were born in Travis Heights. If you’d like to make the ’04 your home, below is a sample of the kind of homes you’ll find for sale, and we’d be happy to help you find the right home.
