SOLD: Charming Rosedale cottage
Tucked away in the heart of Central Austin, this classic 1930’s style home is full of character and charm. A pale green exterior is accented with white trim, making the soul of this home is undeniable. A stone pathway weaves through the front yard to meet a pop of red on the front door. Every step hints at the personality that awaits inside.
Inside you’ll find a functional floor plan full of classic touches. The living room and dining area easily flow together, creating plenty of space for hosting. Through a gorgeous archway, you can see into the large kitchen. Defined spaces ensure practicality without compromising the ease of an open floor plan. With plenty of oversized windows, natural light pours onto the original hardwoods.
The living space is situated at the front of the home. Large windows on two walls overlook the front yard and offer abundant sunlight. With gorgeous hardwoods beneath your feet and timeless casing accenting the windows, this soulful space warm and welcoming. Whether you’re planning a movie night with friends or spending a cozy night in, there’s plenty of room for lounging.
Just off the living room is a
great dining area. An oversized window in here mirrors the classic casing from the living room, ensuring a seamless look and bright space. With room for a large table, this space is prepared for hosting intimate dinners with loved ones or inviting friends and family for larger gatherings.
A large kitchen is situated at the heart of the home. A window above the sink works in tandem with a secondary window in here, boasting generous light. An expansive counter space stretches across the entire room, offering plenty of space for preparing meals. With both uppers and lowers, storage is a breeze. A nostalgic china cabinet features both glass-front storage and storage below, saluting the 1930’s charm of this home. An additional peninsula island offers bar-top seating and creates the perfect spot for meals on the go or chatting with the chef. Through the large archway, this space is still open to the other living areas of the home, allowing these rooms to flow together with ease.
Tucked away toward the back of the property, you’ll find this home’s hidden gem. An enormous sunroom doubles as a secondary living space. Oversized windows line the entire back wall, overlooking the back yard. Gorgeous built ins are ready for your personal touch as they frame yet another window, allowing sunlight to pour in at all angles. This nestled away living space makes it feel like you’re immersed in nature without leaving the comfort of your home.
Double doors lead from the sunroom to a versatile bedroom. While this room has plenty of natural light of its own, you’ll love throwing open the doors to allow light from the sunroom to peek in. With a closet for storage and a ceiling fan overhead, this space could function as a bedroom, home office, or workout space. It easily adapts to meet your needs.
Two more secondary bedrooms are just down the hall. The front bedroom boasts windows on two walls, each overlooking the front yard and flooding the space in natural light. The middle bedroom’s picture window brings in beautiful sunlight that falls across the wood floors. Each room also features closet space for storage and ceiling fans overhead, ensuring that practicality is never lacking.
These Jack and Jill style rooms are joined by a full bath in between. The shared bathroom features a tub and shower combo along with a pedestal sink. Classic black and white tile, a mirrored cabinet, and a traditional wall hatch in this space give a nod to this home’s longstanding history.
Another full bathroom is situated just down the hall for guest use. Here you’ll find a vanity with storage, a stonework walk-in shower, and slate tile beneath your feet. A floating shelf in here doubles as a towel rack and ensures that all the basics are covered.
Tucked away in the back of the home you’ll find a dedicated laundry room. Whether you add a utility space for folding or a bench and hooks to create a mudroom, this space is ready to meet your every need. With an additional window in here, the room can be adapted to suit your lifestyle.
Step out the back door to find a yard that is ready for anything. A large wooden deck offers plenty of space for a dining set while an additional concrete patio awaits outdoor lounge furniture. A third patio is shaded by trees toward the back of the yard and currently houses a fire pit. With three seating areas to choose from and plenty of space for hosting, you’ll love taking your get-togethers outdoors. While many of the plants are just starting to come out of their dormant season, beautiful spring color is just around the corner. Beautiful irises, rose of Sharon shrubs, and Vitex provide cottage charm. Flower beds await your own personal touch. The storage shed tucked away at the back of the property mirrors the home’s green and white exterior, ensuring that it’s both purposeful and tasteful.
The best part of this incredible home is the fantastic location. While this property is nestled away on a quiet street, you’re just minutes from some of Central Austin’s favorite hotspots.
