This Craftsman-style home, built in 1924, has been expanded and renovated in a way that makes the transition from the original home to the two-story, contemporary addition almost seamless—especially from the inside.
The 2,383-square-foot home, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, sits on a choice lot in the Clarksville neighborhood, part of historic Old West Austin, adjacent to downtown.
The front part of the house has numerous original features, including long-leaf pine floors, period window frames and doors, wooden built-ins, a window bench, and a closed-in porch.
Two of the bedrooms, a bathroom, while a spacious glass-walled addition in the back features the master suite and an office/flex room on a second story, as well as a double-height living area. They all open on to a shady, private backyard with a balcony and stone patio that winds around to an alley and one-car carport, as well as additional off-street parking.
The original part of the home includes a number of vintage features, such as long-leaf pine flooring.
The kitchen transitions to the addition, while an enclosed patio leads to the bedrooms and the bathrooms in the front house.
The addition features the master suite, office, and living area, which looks out on to a stone patio and backyard.
