Property Description

Originally constructed in 1915, this central Austin property has been graciously expanded over the decades to include a large primary house plus detached guest casita. The main house boasts 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a formal living room with built-in bookcases, an open kitchen and dining, and 2nd-story den with treetop views. Thoughtful floorplan ideal for modern living. Original Longleaf Pine floors combine with gorgeous Texas-made Saltillo floor tile. 10-foot ceilings throughout the downstairs of the main house. Original double-hung windows in the front of the house indicative of homes of this era mix with quality, modern, wood-clad double pane windows in the newer sections of the home. Custom-made period-style wood copper screens for main house. Relax on the generously sized sun porch made for lazy summer afternoons (sun porch is insulated, but not included in sq. footage). Recent roof shingle replacement on the main house and interior paint throughout including ceilings, trim, and walls (May 2021). The incredible detached 2016-built 1 bed/1.5 bath ADU features high ceilings, stained concrete & wood flooring, and slate gray GE appliances in the open kitchen. 2-car carport with alley access. Gorgeous .22 acre property with pecan and cumquat trees, mountain laurel, and a heritage Texas Live oak. One block to Hancock Golf Course. Three blocks to neighborhood eateries, shopping, and parks. Minutes from Dell Medical School, State Capitol, downtown, & UT. Truly an oasis in the heart of the city.
