This home on old-school swanky Balcones Drive, built in 1957, has seen a few updates. The essentials, however, remain: exposed beams, multiple levels, exposed-brick walls, that sort of thing. Best of all, though, are the bazillions of windows, which both let in lots of natural light and highlight the mature oaks and other majestic greenery outdoors that are the real prize here.
The home measures 4,151 square feet, but being mostly nestled in the treetops makes it seem intimate. It has two bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, along with recently updated baths, systems, and kitchen appliances.
There are built-in bookcases in the formal living area, a large sunroom, and a downstairs den with fireplace, beverage center, and guest suite. Located on a half-acre-plus corner lot (did we mention the trees?), it also has wrought-iron fencing and partial city views.
