FOR SALE: Artistic Home in Milwood Neighborhood
Located in the established Milwood neighborhood of North Austin just off of Parmer Lane, this two-story, 3 bedroom, 2 living, and 2 ½ bath home has artful curb appeal. Board and batten shutters, artistic wood accents, striking black posts, and dormer windows add to the distinctive character of the front yard, complemented by mature trees. Sit in a rocker on your front porch and watch the world go by.
The home’s entryway and front living room feature vaulted ceilings with striking wood beams and large windows, bathing the space in natural light. Your eyes are drawn to the unique stylistic details of the dark planks lining the stairway and loft and prominent beams framing the walkway between the home’s two living rooms. Shiplap accent walls add character, and light wood-like tile flooring grounds the space. The loft overlooking the front room creates a sense of openness. The half-bathroom is big on style with a vessel sink, patterned tile, and shiplap wall treatment.
A second living area is located at the back of the house. This informal space is anchored by a central fireplace, flanked by uniquely-styled built-in cabinets with barn-style sliding doors, colorful tile countertops, and open shelving. There’s even a wet bar with a small vessel sink and beverage fridge, perfect for easy relaxing and entertaining. The informal living room opens to the kitchen and includes an eat-in bar for casual snacking or meals on the go.
The kitchen is well-situated for easy flow to both living areas and the dining space. This cheerful room features on-trend blue cabinets, a large apron sink, colorful subway tile backsplash, and gas stove. The built-in banquette seating will be one of the most popular spaces in the house.
Upstairs you will find the three bedrooms and a flexible open-air loft, all adorned with crown molding. The airy loft overlooks the front living room. With carpeted floors and a large window, this flexible space has dynamic potential. Make it a home office, a game room, a home gym, or even a third living room.
The primary bedroom suite features crown molding, expansive sliding door closets, carpet, and large, paned windows overlooking the front yard. The en-suite bathroom includes a dual vanity with two vessel sinks, tile floors, a bathtub/shower combo punctuated with vibrant blue tile, and creative storage options.
The two secondary bedrooms have carpeted floors, ceiling fans, crown molding, and natural light entering from horizontal sliding picture windows. One bedroom also features wainscoting wall accents and a charming built-in bench below the window, great for reading on a sunny afternoon. Both bedrooms share a bright bathroom with a vessel sink, stone countertops, and a tub/shower combo.
Finally, we draw your attention to the home’s backyard - a space that is perfect for entertaining. Just open the sliding glass doors in the secondary living room, and you’ll find yourself on a large, covered back patio with expansive view of the pool and backyard. Featuring two ceiling fans and discreet curtains, you can enjoy the backyard in comfort while being shielded from the elements.
You’ll look forward to enjoying warm days in the 24-thousand gallon in-ground heated pool, and warming up on chilly nights in the attached spa. This calm space features a lush green lawn and dynamic planting areas for flexing your green thumb. This backyard is perfect for splashing through Austin’s hot summer days.
