One of the many advantages of living in the historic Old West Austin neighborhood is its proximity to Pease Park and the Shoal Creek Greenbelt. That’s particularly relevant to this two-story frame home, as its bucolic dream of a yard backs to the greenbelt as well as offering its own, lightly cultivated green space, outdoor shower, generous covered porch, and spiral staircase to the home’s second story.

Built in 1940, the 3,884-square-foot home has been recently updated. It now features an open common space with kitchen, dining, and living areas. Marble counter tops, brass hardware, high-end appliances, and custom cabinetry are highlights in the kitchen. It has wood and hard-tile floors, two fireplaces, and a butler’s pantry/wet bar. There are four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, including a true master suite, with a sitting area and an adjacent, enclosed, second story porch as well as a soaking tub and marble everywhere in the en suite bathroom. The home is located at 1202 Claire Avenue, with the listing held by Nicole Kessler at Compass.
