What a difference a couple of years makes. Granted, that’s a phrase that could apply to many current events and situations, but in this case we’re referring to the housing market—at least in some cases, such as this West Lake Hills home.
Built in 1968 and remodeled a few years ago by locals Stuart Sampley Architect, the house sold for $1,180,000 in 2015. Now it’s back, asking $1,399,900—not a bad profit (if it sells for that) for a two-year flip.
To be serious, this hardly seems like a flip, bearing the trademark understated sophistication and rich materials endemic to Sampley’s style. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac in a leafy area of West Lake Hills on the edge of Rollingwood, the 2,152-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and copious views of the surrounding greenery—making it seem much farther from downtown than it really is.
Massive upgrades include sealed white oak floors, all custom cabinetry, Silestone countertops, luxury fixtures, and Bosch appliances.
