The prime location—a few blocks uphill from Barton Springs Road in the Bouldin Creek neighborhood—should be plenty to make this home attractive to legions of buyers. Throw in downtown views and top-notch style by South Austin design-build specialists Moore|Tate (plus, you know the budget for it), and you have quite the deal.
Designed and built in 2015, the 3,183-square-foot home hews modern-farmhouse, with its combination steeply pitched roofs, copious contemporary windows, hardwood floors, and walnut built-ins, pumped up a bit by patterned design elements and colorful walls.
The home has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, with one of the guest bedrooms featuring a private entrance and sharing a deck with a 520-square foot guest house (read: income-producing possibilities).
Upgrades made since the two-story home was built include custom countertops, motorized solar shades, designer kitchen and bath faucets, LED lighting throughout, and custom steel exterior doors.
The kitchen is open to the family room, with a formal dining room on the other side of a central courtyard.
Upstairs features lots of lightness and brightness, as well as those sweet views.
The landscaping has been upgraded to include full irrigation, steel planters and retaining walls, Ipe decking, exterior lighting, and a french drain.
Frankly, we would be more than happy just to live in the guest house.
