“Is there any place else to live in Austin? I can enjoy estate-style living but meet friends anywhere in the city in a moment. I love to spread out a blanket and read in Pease Park…”
Turn south off of busy 24th street and find yourself transported back in time in the Old Enfield Neighborhood. Historic colonial style homes rest side by side with quaint cottages built from 1910-1950 but with all the updates a modern luxury home buyer expects. Old Enfield in December is a sight to behold with lights and sights that will delight children and the young at heart. Proudly situated within short distances to Downtown, University, and Mopac access but with the feel of a forest enclave, Old Enfield beckons residents to stay for a lifetime.
The foundation of Old Enfield is the stunning but classic architecture and sprawling grounds of Woodlawn, also known as the Pease Governors Mansion. While not the only mansion in the area it is the most famous and stands as the center of the diverse architectural styles found along these attractive avenues. Enjoy the natural expanse of Pease District Park including modern playground equipment, neighborhood pool and ample picnic table area. Slip on over to nearby Clarksville for unique food choices at Cipolina or stop by and taste what’s fresh at Wink on North Lamar. Think you can’t afford such opulence and convenience? Not to worry, reasonable homes can be found and a life begun in this Austin gem called Old Enfield.

“We immediately felt comfortable with Tom (Sunstrom) because he was real and relaxed and had no problems telling us we could find something better, but never tried to show us houses we couldn't afford. A year after selling us our first house, Tom is still in touch with us through holiday cards and homeowners’ newsletters. When we are ready to sell this house and move on to bigger and better things, we will definitely use Tom’s services again.” - Nena C. and Sheldon R.
