Nestled in the coveted Travis Heights neighborhood, just a few short blocks from the Blunn Creek Greenbelt, this three-bed, two-bath stunner is teaming with finesse and functionality. Originally constructed in the 1950s, the property has undergone a complete remodel, which included the restoration of the original hardwood floors, installation of energy-efficient windows, and solid-core doors to provide an extra sound barrier throughout the house.
From the street, prodigious limestone steps line the pathway through the xeriscaped front yard, which features established landscaping and drought-resistant plants.
Through the front entryway is an open living space that flows seamlessly into the well-appointed kitchen area. Stainless Bosch appliances, an LG gas range, and sleek cabinets and drawers highlight the modern kitchen which—like the rest of the house—is tied into a whole-house water filtration system and uses a tankless water heater.
Beyond the kitchen is a dining area and a second living room with vaulted ceilings and an abundance of natural light. Here is where you’ll find access to a private side-yard with rollaway padded Astroturf. The space is one of several ideal outdoor living areas, but can easily be converted into a carport, thanks to the custom gate that is already installed.
From the main floor, head downstairs to the oversized flex room with plenty of space to be an office, or gym; or go up to the cozy, loft-style master bedroom and walk out onto the private deck overlooking the property. The master bath includes a double shower, as well as his and hers vanities, and sits adjacent to the magnificent dressing room from California closets.
Off the back of the house is an immaculate screened porch for added indoor/outdoor living. Across the eco-friendly, Ipe decking, the pool centers the backyard with a waterfall feature and tanning level. It also runs on a UV pool system which uses 90-percent less chlorine and helps to eliminate chlorine side effects and allergies.
Mature bamboo and lush greenery provide aesthetically pleasing privacy walls, and the entire property is lined with a remote controlled mosquito and insect repellent system to ensure your evenings outside are bug-free. The backyard space extends to another outdoor living area near the back of the property, a dog-run along the side of the house.
Walk out the front door of this spacious gem, and you’re less than a mile from the world-famous shopping, dining, and live entertainment of Austin’s South Congress District, and only a five-minute drive to Downtown.
With a prime location, all the luxuries of a modern home, and an emphasis on flexible outdoor spaces, this property is a truly unique find in the heart of the country’s hottest real estate market.
