It seems to be the week (or one of them) for Old West Austin heritage mansions to pop up on the real estate radar. In addition to this historic, Prairie style home in Old Enfield on the market, a Pemberton Heights estate, originally built in 1937, now graces the listings.
The two-story, 6,405-square-foot home, which sits on half an acre in the tony central west neighborhood, has been updated in an eclectic style that hews French Country but has modern and original elements as well.
The main house features four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, as well as a formal study, a large family room, a wine room and bar area, and four fireplaces. French doors connect the indoors to the grounds and pool via a large, screened-in porch.
In addition to the main house, there is a Nantucket-style guest apartment with private entrance, a full bath, and a kitchenette.
There are wood and hard tile floors throughout the home, and there’s a wine storage and bar area off the dining area.
Rough-hewn beams and original-wood ceilings contrast with modern elements including recessed lighting and a glass-and-iron-railed staircase.
The spacious master suite has rough-hewn wooden beams on the ceiling, sitting area with fireplace and a private balcony.
The home has a guest house with separate entrances as well as an outdoor kitchen and gated motor court.
