This home seems somewhat typical of the ones Verde Builders has been specializing in lately, especially on the Eastside. A multilevel, single-family home on Pennsylvania Avenue near Poquito Street, it features many of the characteristics the builder favors at the moment.
The most prominent of these are its deceptively large size (it unfolds to 2,550 square feet behind a compact front-facing exterior) and its multiple decks and spiral staircase, which celebrate the downtown views still available (for the moment, anyway) from parts of Central East Austin.
What is special about the home is that its atrium design, created to accommodate an enormous heritage oak by, basically, wrapping the house around it. Multiple decks and fencing are incorporated in a way that makes it both inviting and private.
The home features five bedrooms (including two masters) and three bathrooms, as well as a sunken living room, modern kitchen with gourmet appliances, multiple entertainment decks, diamond-polished concrete floors and acacia hardwoods, an office, an artisanal steel security gate with remote, and tons of natural light throughout.
