It’s not often that one finds an older (shall we say “vintage”?) remodel of a condo or other multifamily property that’s up to par, design-wise. This multilevel townhouse, built in 1978, is an exception.
Located in South Austin’s Barton Hills neighborhood, the place could probably skate on its natural surroundings and its views of downtown and the Hill Country from its two balconies. According to the listing, it’s also an easy walk to Zilker Park/Barton Spring and five minutes to downtown.
Rather than work to camouflage its origins, as many remodels do, its redesign works with its 1970s vintage, bringing updates to or emphasizing such period features as a floating fireplace, beamed ceiling with skylights, arty iron chandeliers, and an emphasis on the eccentric stairwells of its split level to an eclectic mix.
The two-story home measures 1,416 square feet and has two bedrooms and bathrooms, high ceilings, and lots of natural light.
The main room’s open plan features a kitchen and dining area that open on to a balcony.
The home features two master suites and two balconies with downtown and Hill Country views.
