SOLD: Well-maintained home near the Domain
Lovingly maintained, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in the Angus Valley neighborhood has a classic brick exterior framed by mature pecan trees and a colorful crepe myrtle. The warm and welcoming front porch beckons you to slow down, relax, and sit for a bit. With a laidback attitude, this home is all about familiar comforts.
Nowhere is that comfort more obvious than in the spacious living room with its soaring ceiling. A working fireplace is flanked by two large windows that provide expansive views into the private backyard. The living room shares space with the formal dining room giving the home a communal and open feel. You’ll enjoy hosting friends and family in this inviting space.
The adjacent kitchen includes numerous upgrades. Rich brown quartz counters, oak-colored cabinets, and earth-toned glass tile backsplash provide a beautiful backdrop for preparing meals. You’ll appreciate the abundant counter space and storage. The breakfast nook in the kitchen is perfect for casual meals, and the atrium window brings in a lot of natural light. The kitchen even includes a sliding window that opens onto the screened porch so you can easily transport food and drinks outside.
The sleeping quarters of the home are located on the opposite side of the house for maximum privacy. There are two secondary bedrooms with roomy closets. One of the bedrooms has fantastic built-in shelves, L-shaped desk, and a daybed that makes for an ideal home office or craft room. The other secondary bedroom includes a built-in Murphy bed. The guest bath has granite counters, metallic tile accents, and a combination shower/tub.
The owner’s suite is highlighted with a wall of windows overlooking the backyard. The spacious bedroom even includes space for a sitting area, and a private entrance allows you to access to the lush backyard at your convenience.
Perhaps the best part is the large owner’s bathroom. Full of style, the bathroom features dual cottage-style vanities topped with granite counters, and the grasscloth wallpaper adds a natural element to the design. The spa-like shower includes bench seating, dual shower heads, and hand-held spray. A large walk-in closet easily has room for two. This is an owner’s retreat you’ll never want to leave…
Located on a large .33 acre lot, the home has a serene backyard shaded by mature pecan trees. Crepe myrtles and butterfly bushes add colorful accents to the established flower beds. Enclosed with a wood privacy fence draped in English Ivy, you can enjoy this private oasis from the comfort of the screened porch (no mosquitos!) or the open back porch. There’s something new to appreciate from every vantage point of this backyard paradise.
A few steps from the house you'll find a large air-conditioned workshop. Separate from the main house, the workshop is the perfect woodworking, craft or hobby space. Complete with an exhaust fan and garage bay, you’ll have plenty of space to tackle your next project. There's also a separate garden shed to store yard equipment.
The two-car garage is also outfitted for the hobbyist. A coated floor, built-in cabinets, and attic space provide maximum flexibility. The garage also includes dedicated space for the washer and dryer.
Located between Mopac and Highway 183, this home has the benefit of being in the heart of Austin while feeling like it is worlds away. Popular Austin restaurants like Flower Child, Taverna, North Italia, Second Bar + Kitchen, Sway and Velvet Taco are just minutes away in the Domain shopping center just on the other side of Mopac. Local favorites like Chuy's and Rudy's BBQ are also close. With the Domain being so close, you also have easy access to department stores, small boutiques, and a wide range of other stores. The Arboretum is also nearby, and the Mopac Expressway makes it easy to venture downtown.
This home is also convenient to Austin’s “tech corridor” where Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Apple all have offices near the Domain. If you’re moving to Austin to work at one of these offices, this home would be a perfect 10-minute drive to and from work. The home is zoned to Davis Elementary, Murchison Middle School, and Anderson High School within Austin ISD.
