This Pemberton Heights home was built in 1950—literally the middle of the 20th century—but its style hews more toward that decade’s traditional side rather than its incipient mod inclinations (think Betty and Don Draper’s first home on Mad Men rather than Don’s swinging divorcé pad).
That doesn’t mean it’s not lovely, well-designed, and nicely updated; in fact, it’s a refreshing interlude in the parade of Eichlers and Stengers that still fascinate us so.
At a generous 3,794 square feet, the two-story, masonry-clad home has four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The kitchen Bay a bay window in the kitchen and nicely done patios overlook an expansive yard, where there’s room for room for a pool as well as additional yard space (sure to be verdant in this very established area of historic Old West Austin.
Several living spaces offer flow for entertaining, with French doors opening to the patios and private courtyard. There is also an additional 623 square feet of finished space above the garage that, according to the listing, is not included in the home’s official total area amount.
The symmetrical house has wings with formal living and dining rooms, with the kitchen, breakfast area, and den on the other side.
Upstairs bedrooms have plenty of windows and treetop views
The home has both an upstairs balcony and downstairs porch that overlook the backyard.
