Fion Wine Pub in Steiner Ranch Closed

We have just confirmed that Fion Wine Pub, located in Steiner Ranch, has officially closed its doors.  Through an email correspondence with the manager it was confirmed that they have permanently closed, citing issues with the current business model in that location.

This was a great restaurant and a cool place to enjoy a meal or a few glasses of wine.  Steiner Ranch will surely miss having Fion Wine Pub in their neighborhood.

Listing Description

At 2244 square feet (per TCAD), this gorgeous luxury loft has it all!  Upon entering, you are greeted by a spacious entryway with beautiful hand-layed cork flooring.  On the first level, there is a large bedroom that could double as a wonderful home office (it even has it’s own private entry to the courtyard!), a full bathroom, the laundry room, and multiple closets for ample storage.  Also on the first level is an oversized two-car garage that is wider than a typical garage, and tall too!

The second floor is the entertainment area, and there is plenty of space for it!  This open-concept combines the living, dining, and kitchen areas as one enormous space.  The kitchen is appointed with upscale finishes including granite counters, undermount sink, high-end fixtures and faucetry, and KitchenAid appliances.  Also, the pine plank hardwood floors tie the whole space together in a way that redefines luxury and class.  Don’t miss the cantilevered balcony overlooking the courtyard below and the very pretty half-bath, too!

On the third floor lies the spacious master retreat, complete with a master closet that is an absolute delight.  The master bathroom features his & hers separate granite vanities, and a magnificent travertine walk-in rain shower.  There is also a spacious secondary bedroom and a well-appointed full bathroom on the third floor too!

The best part about Kinney Lofts is the location!  Living here means you are literally a few blocks away from the Austin City Limits Music Festival at Zilker Park, from watching a new release film or the next indie favorite at Alamo Drafthouse, from the best sushi in Austin at Uchi, and so much more.  South Austin has quickly become the “it” place to live in Austin, especially homes near South Lamar in the coveted 78704 zip code!

Top Five Reasons to Move to ShadowGlen Right Now!

We have seen an increase in recent interest from prospective buyers of ShadowGlen real estate, located only 15 or so miles away from Downtown Austin.  And it makes sense too.  There is a lot of future growth coming soon to Manor.  Combine that growth with the fact that Austin has been touted in nearly every recent real estate survey. Manor is only a short commute to Austin, and that commute is about to get even shorter.

With that said, here are our top five reasons to consider making a move to ShadowGlen right now before it’s too late:

  1. Big businesses are coming this way: Wal-Mart, CVS, Auto Zone and a medical center are all on its way to Manor. Residents have been longing for more convenient shopping and are excited about these businesses coming their way! Big businesses like this also provide more jobs and help promote a more robust local economy.
  2. The Manor Expressway will be completed in 2014, easing traffic woes and making it even more convenient to travel to and from Austin. ShadowGlen is currently about 25 minutes from downtown Austin, and I would like to predict that the Expressway helps reduce that already relatively convenient drive time.
  3. The Capital Metro just opened their newest Park & Ride in Manor. This is great for those of you who would rather use mass transportation on your way to work (ie, you can text and email on your way into work since you aren’t the driver, and you save gas money!)
  4.  ShadowGlen will soon be getting its very own elementary school! Other master-planned communities such as Steiner Ranch and Teravista have their own elementary schools and those are now Exemplary-rated schools. We have high-hopes that the same would happen for ShadowGlen.
  5.  Rumor has it that the ShadowGlen Golf Course will be opened again soon!

With interest rates still so low and all of these great things happening in ShadowGlen, NOW is the time to buy before prices and rates start to slide back up! There are mortgage programs out there right now that cater to prospective buyers in areas like ShadowGlen, such as USDA and the MCC Bond.  Contact us today for more information about ShadowGlen homes and the opportunities currently available for buyers in this great community.

Houses in this neighborhood go fast, and I don’t expect this one to last very long. Come take a look today and you will see why!

This house has the perfect backyard and shade trees throughout the lot. The kitchen has been redone with lots of added cabinet space.
