Austinites often think of the historic Hyde Park neighborhood as Bungalow City, or some such appellation. The fact is, there plenty of modern and contemporary homes in the area, usually designed in a way that works well aesthetically with the older homes around them.
This contemporary, one-story home located in the northern end of the neighborhood on Avenue G is a good example of just such a home. The 1765-square-foot main home, which features a welcoming if simple facade full of windows and a covered side porch with cedar siding, has three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The house got a recent, extensive remodel last year and features 11-foot ceilings and an abundance of natural light, courtesy of the aforementioned front windows and three skylights. It has an open floor plan with a European-style kitchen that includes custom cabinetry, updated appliances and hardware, and a unique, handcrafted light fixture above the quartz island. The master bathroom has a freestanding garden tub and large frameless, walk-in shower.
The back patio and large side yard offer entertainment areas for kids, pets, and adults. In addition, there’s a detached, 494-square-foot accessory living unit with one bedroom and one bathroom.
