Castle Hill home with big views asks $2.6M

Remodeled Deco-style home with recording studio

It’s not that unusual for a home in Austin to have a recording studio, especially if you count the makeshift kind, stille found in extra bedrooms, converted garages, and outbuildings all over town. This unique, four-story Castle Hill house, however, features a recording studio that looks more in keeping with what a musician/producer type with some dough to spare would much prefer.

Then there are the views from the top two levels of the house. The kitchen, the top floor, and several windows showcase some pretty incredible skyline sightlines (with which its location atop a hill in Clarksville certainly helps).

Built in 1994 and remodeled in 2012, the house sports a style that harks back to neither era; rather, it recalls structures of the 1980s that reference Art Deco and were often shown in films and television shows of the time as locations for a variety of often cocaine-based adventures. This 4,175-square-foot place shows a great deal of restraint in that area, though, telegraphing the style without overdoing it.

The home’s kitchen and top-floor master suite both have decks with downtown views.

The four stories of the house, which three bedrooms and four bathrooms, has are connected by both stairs and an elevator.

In addition to its recording studio, the home also has a dedicated media room.

The property also has a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest house, and a two-car garage, in addition to more off-street parking.
