When we first met this bright-and-light, brand-new townhome in South Austin, it was April, both sides were available for purchase, and it was listed list for $825,000. Now one side is sold, while this unit is now offering the same impressive and thoughtful design as before, now for $65,000 less.
Located in the popular Bouldin neighborhood near South Congress Avenue, the 2,117-square-foot, two-story home has three bedrooms (including an upstairs loft) and two and a half bathrooms. There are large floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, providing natural light throughout. The modern finish-out includes an open floor plan with high ceilings, stained concrete and brushed white-oak floors, Mexican Cantera stone, sleek bathroom and kitchen finishes, and open stairs.
Constructed of stucco and steel, the two units look as if careful attention was paid to allowing privacy without compromising the integrity of the design. A partial wall divides the outdoor living space without obstructing the function and open feel of the yards, which also feature wooden decks.
The open kitchen features a center island as well as a separate dining area looks out on to the living room and yard beyond.
There is one bedroom on the main level, while upstairs includes a loft and two additional bedrooms
The unit has a separate, two-car carports with access from a side alley, and drought-tolerant landscaping has been installed on the large lot for easy maintenance.
