On SecondShelters.com: Standalone Condo Is Perfect for Longhorn Fans – and Is Less Than $200K

Share News:

Sometimes we find great properties, and sometimes they are dropped in our laps — and this standalone condo in the planned community of Mueller is a latter instance.

Never heard of Mueller? Located about 11 miles from the Austin city center, the community is the best of both worlds — city services without the city taxes or the city ordinances (more on why that is key in the story). It is located on the 700-acre site that was vacated by the Robert Mueller Municipal Airport when it relocated to Austin in 1999.

Given its proximity to downtown Austin and the University of Texas campus, 4511 Graceful Lane #474 is the perfect spot for season-ticket holding Longhorn football (or basketball, or both, for that matter) fans who want a place they can relax on game weekends.

We have more details about Mueller and this great standalone condo over on SecondShelters.com.

    I am confused about the location of this property. You say it is in Mueller, the redevelopment of Mueller Airport in Austin. Mueller is 3 miles from Downtown Austin and ever closer to UT. It is on Airport Blvd. It is certainly within the city limits of Austin, for all purposes (including taxes and city services, and subject to short-term rental restrictions). The property that you show on Graceful Lane is in a different neighborhood called Austin’s Colony, way out east of Austin, nowhere near the old Mueller Airport. True, it is presently outside the Austin City Limits, but it is not particularly convenient either to downtown Austin or UT. I don’t know whether that area is incorporated or not, but I would question what city services would be available.
