Tucked behind a stucco wall and mature trees on a large, beautifully landscaped corner lot, this remarkable single story is not only a short walk from some of the coolest spots Austin has to offer, but it unfolds to offer inspiring spaces, comfortable rooms, private courtyard areas and a beautiful swimming pool.
Four years ago, the current owners took a promising 1800 square foot cottage in what has become one of Austin’s most desirable neighborhoods, renovated the existing rooms and added indoor and outdoor spaces, expanding the home to 2384 square feet of magic. Wood floors were refinished, walls were rendered smooth with no texture, high quality casement windows replaced the old ones, landscaping was perfected, baths redone and the kitchen was revamped with custom cabinetry, a built-in Subzero refrigerator and 5 burner Wolf range. A corner bar area in the kitchen has a wall of storage and an ice maker. Saltillo tile floors flow into the dining and spill down into a sunken living area with a wood burning fireplace.
A welcome entry through a covered front porch features the original living room, two bedrooms and a dream study lined with custom bookcases, large casement windows and gleaming wood floors. The former master bedroom has a Spanish inspired bath with a glass shower and a corner jetted tub. A hammered copper sink dropped into the stained wood vanity and finishes out what is now a second master bedroom.
From the main living room it’s a right turn through glass doors to a large, inviting, manicured courtyard with flagstones in crushed granite making for a lovely sitting area and the perfect setting for a fire pit. The stucco wall gives privacy and maintains incredibly quiet surroundings for an evening visit.
Glass doors to the left lead out into a covered patio with an outdoor kitchen fitted with a Lynx grill and a refrigerator. Wired for sound, the expansive area includes space for a dining table and looks out to stone pavers and beautiful landscaping against the backdrop of a stucco wall making this peaceful respite a private one as well. A few steps away the clean lines of an L-shaped pool provide refreshing relief from a hot summer day.
The tall vaulted wood ceiling of a large new master suite at the back of the home is a lovely sanctuary that opens to the covered patio. A glass shower and a deep, enticing jetted tub are inviting options for the end or beginning of each day. Double vanity sinks are cut out of a single piece of stone with modern lines and invisible drains. It just adds a modern touch to a luxury space.
High quality finishes, intimate rooms, enchanting outdoor spaces and a private pool in a perfect Austin setting. Walk to coffee shops, restaurants (Fonda San Miguel, arguably Austin’s most beautiful restaurant, is very close) shops, bars and parks. Enjoy the best Austin has to offer and then come home to a haven where it all seems miles away.
