    Welcome to A Lane

    Exclusive A Lane is home to only about 20 properties in all, many of which have been happily occupied by the same families for decades. 2201’s current residents claim the longest tenure of all, which certainly speaks volumes about the location’s charm and promise. They have taken great care to maintain the original footprint and detailing of the home, which was built in 1932. On the exterior, you will find the original windows, front door, and the amazing stone terraces and steps surrounding the showpiece fountain. The original tile remains untouched save for basic preservation and maintenance in the bathrooms. Other maintenance and improvements include a garage conversion and a smartly updated kitchen - minor changes that add a welcome touch of modernity to this old-world treasure.

    2201 A Lane, also having the address of 2200 Parkway, is simply a rare gem among the unique here in this historically significant part of Austin. One of the most enticing features of the property is certainly the view of downtown, which is guaranteed to remain as-is due to ongoing efforts to preserve Pease Park. This is especially appropriate, as all of A Lane’s homes were originally built to house University of Texas professors requiring easy access to the campus. History buffs will be delighted to learn that 2201 previously housed both a coach and an economics professor for the University. The quaint, walkable trail that they would have taken as part of their daily commute will remain a defining feature for years to come. The stand-out feature is by far the exquisite stonework created by the finest craftsman of the 20th Century. These layers of stone terraces and steps surround an extraordinary fountain as its centerpiece, beautifully marking the entrance from the Parkway entry of the property. The fountain is adorned with Cantera Stone personally carried by the current owner direct from Mexico.

    Pease Park itself is another must-see site for those looking to familiarize themselves with the area’s unique history. It is perhaps best known for the part it played in the winter of 1865, when General George Armstrong Custer and two troupes of Union cavalry under his command camped at the banks of Shoal Creek, having been sent there on a mission to calm post-Civil War unrest. Ongoing renovations ensure that this and other stories are preserved for the coming generations to learn from and appreciate as the current residents have. Other area attractions include the Shoal Creek Greenway, the Pease Mansion, and the delightful Ma Ferguson House - all walkable, and all perfect for an educational day trip.

    Perhaps best of all is the heart of the area, which has long been known for its family-friendliness. Children play happily on the same historic trails as their New Deal Era predecessors. Modern families swim across the same stretches of Lady Bird Lake that the Comanche Natives once passed through. You would be hard-pressed to find any more quintessentially “Texan” area, much less one where the old world meets the new world in such a harmonious way. Lay claim to your own piece of history, where your happy memories meet the many that have come before them. That unique spirit is itself the difference between excellence and perfection - a difference that is apparent in every corner of A Lane.
