A classic modern home in a classic Austin neighborhood (Northwest Hills), this house keeps the bones of its original 1967, ranch-style build and adds a lighter feel and quite a bit of daylight, making it much more to the liking of most contemporary buyers.
The home is a split-level, with most rooms at street level and the master bedroom four steps up. The vaulted, beamed main room ceiling, large stone fireplace, and angled clerestory windows speak to its origins, while features such as the subway tile in the kitchen and modified walls that create a more open plan reflect more current tastes.
The 3,139-square-foot home features four bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as two dining rooms, two living rooms, and a downstairs bonus room. The gourmet kitchen has been completely remodeled and has a small lift for moving groceries and such from the garage.
The kitchen features a six-burner, double-oven range as well as two sinks and two dishwashers.
The master bedroom has a sitting area and a walk-in closet, and its bathroom features a marble shower and a double vanity. Secondary bathrooms have also been remodeled.
The kitchen overlooks a deck and the large, fenced backyard.
