When last we visited the Tulip Condominiums in the sought-after Travis Heights neighborhood, they were: 1) still under construction, 2) adorned with striking aqua and gold accents, and 3) asking $775,000 for a two-bedroom unit.
Eight months later, the South Austin condos are looking more subdued—though they still have some distinctive archways, curvy balcony railings, and enormous, round windows. They’re also priced much lower—this one, for instance, is asking $579,000, and a larger unit with a rooftop deck is seeking $599,000.
But let’s focus on the more affordable one, shall we? At 2,049 square feet, the three-story unit has two bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The custom wrought-iron work found on the balconies continues inside, where there are also smooth interior walls, wood-framed windows, and 14-foot ceilings. Floors are wood or hard tile throughout.
The circular window on the top floor opens to a balcony; the open-plan, gourmet kitchen features stainless Bosch appliances and soft-close cabinet doors and drawers.
The master suite has a second balcony and a step-in shower and double vanities in the bathroom.
The first floor has a two-car garage in back and bedroom with a full bathroom.
