Being located in a leafy section of Central Austin, on a dead-end street across from Eastwoods Park, is really all any home needs. This appealing property, however—while undeniably spendy—piles on with a restored and expanded 1939 bungalow, lovely and unfussy landscaping, and a detached studio in back. There’s also a hot tub with a view of the UT Tower involved.
The front home, a brick Tudor Revival affair, retains a number of unique original details as well as featuring updates including reclaimed wood ceilings, a kitchen with high-end appliances and finishes (and a wine fridge), a master suite that takes up the entire second floor, and a third-story deck with that hot tub and the view we mentioned above.
Behind the main home, underneath huge oaks and among various patios and gardens, is a detached studio that takes in the backyard foliage as well as connecting to the contemporary, entertainment-friendly addition to the original home.
Totalling 2,874 square feet, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, the home at 708 Sparks Avenue is listed for $1.595 million by Rick Luisi of Coldwell Banker United Realtors.
