This home in South Austin’s popular Bouldin Creek neighborhood—it’s smack dab in the middle, between South First Street and South Congress Avenue—is fairly new (build 1998). Its structure, design, and materials, however, harken back to the early decades of the 20th century, giving it a homey appeal.
The covered porch is inviting, and the the quirky, arty decor that it currently sports certainly add to that feeling, but they could also inspire one with ideas about how to replace it with one’s own quirky, arty, etc.
The family room, with vaulted ceilings, wooden built-ins, and an art nook, could certainly provide such inspiration. The 2,523-square-foot, two story home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as a formal dining with a faux fireplace, a separate office on main the main floor.
There are hardwood floors throughout, a kitchen with granite counters and custom cabinets, and a private, well-landscaped backyard shaded by huge oaks.
The master features a private, covered balcony, two walk-in closets, and a spa-type bathroom with a separate shower and clawfoot tub.
The covered back porch overlooks a private, shaded yard with a detached studio.
