Property Description

Discover CHARACTER and COOL when you escape from urban life to the .4 acre backyard oasis of this restored and enhanced Mid-Century Modern 2/2 home! Sunset city views from the wooded elevated lot will enchant you. Heaps of natural light from the 6 windows flood the home, highlighting the refinished oak floors, open floor plan, high ceilings, unique vintage built-in bookcase, and spacious living area. Delight in the renovated white kitchen with white appliances and cabinets, gas cooking, double carousels, and the IMMENSE quartz peninsula with pull-out shelving. The elegantly updated baths feature an extended soaking tub, custom tile work, and a built-in bamboo room divider. Fall in love with the 200-SF studio in the trees with HVAC, deck, outdoor shower; petite architecturally stunning meditation structure, substantial shed of modern design, both with electricity. You will forget you are in the city and be transported to a magic forest! The solar-paneled roof provides 100% of electricity for exquisitely low energy bills. All will appreciate the genius use of zoned space-saving ductless mini-split HVAC. Enjoy rustic splendor around the fire pit. This property is the rarely found combination of unique, artful, and private the land drops down to a creek. Owners will enjoy the fabulous location with easy access to downtown Austin, the University of Texas, and Highway 183. With a location super-close to funky hot spots like Sahara Lounge, Springdale General and The Front Page, Caffe Medici and Levercraft Coffee, Willies Barbecue, and the Southern Heights Brewing Company, this home is near a plethora of exciting options. You will find simple elegance in the detailing here on the tastefully landscaped lot on a tree-lined street.
