There are plenty of Austin home buyers, it seems—especially those with a few years of urban living under their belts—to start craving a place that’s a little bit country and a little bit still a place your friends are willing to visit. This Mission-style home, which the listing calls a “hacienda,” seems especially suited to that buyer.
Built in 1974, the house retains many of its original California/Spanish-style influences while escaping most of the generic, McMansion-style tropes common to the genre. The 3,055-square-foot house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It’s located on on one and a half acres of land in Bear Creek, adjacent to Circle C Ranch, approximately 15 miles from Downtown Austin.
Sited under numerous large oak trees and has measures, the remodeled home has 1,300 square feet of covered outdoor living areas that include a large front porch, a gazebo under the trees, and a huge second-floor veranda.
The remodeled two-story home hardwood and tile flooring throughout, and quartz counters, updated fixtures, a pizza oven, and a farmhouse sink in the kitchen.
There’s a large upstairs veranda/living area along, light-filled bedrooms, and bathrooms with updated fixtures.
Outdoor features include porches and patios, a lighted gazebo, a storage shed, and two water storage tanks.
