After less than a week away, at least listings-wise, we return to Pemberton Heights, this time with a home of a different stripe. Unlike last’s week’s 1930s-cottage-made-modern, the Keith House is a full-on historic landmark, designed in a mostly preserved of Colonial Revival and Monterey styles (according to its plaque).
Built in 1933, the home was designed by architect William D. Anderson for his sister and her husband (the namesake Keiths) and sited for a Capitol view (now obscured) from its Old West Austin enclave and kept in the family until 1962.
Naturally, the two-story, 3,108-square-foot house has a number of historic and period features, including wood floors, moldings, casements, and built-in cabinets. The outdoor living spaces—which include a covered pergola with a fireplace—were designed to incorporate with the gated, oak-covered grounds and lush gardens.
The home has two bedrooms, both with balconies, and three bathrooms. It is listed for $1,699,000 by Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty.
