Not only does this rebuilt Craftsman actually look like a Craftsman (and the term “rebuild” in the listing implies that it was), it has a number of other things going for it, especially for families or others looking for a large, functional, and really rather fun-looking home.
The two-story home is located in the central-city Allandale neighborhood, which is also rather family-oriented in addition to being lovely and leafy. Designed by award winning Designed by local firm Barley & Pfeiffer Architects, which is specializes in green building design, the home was on Austin’s 2013 Cool House Tour, as an exemplary example of passive design-reducing energy load and maximizing site potential.
The 3,071-square-foot home has four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, as well as a sun room, three living rooms, two dining rooms, a utility room, and a workshop. It’s also located on a lot that measures a third of an acre and features mature trees, shaded porches, gardens, and entertainment/activity areas.
The large home features hardwood floors, low-e windows, wood blinds, custom millwork, designer paint, and 10-foot ceilings.
The cook’s kitchen kitchen has prep and farm-style sinks and granite countertops.
The master suite has a double vanity, dressing room, jetted bathtub, and separate, walk-in shower.
