JUST LISTED: A hidden gem in Bouldin Creek
Nestled between the popular attractions of South Lamar and local favorites along South First Street, you’ll find this beautiful four room home plus guest house tucked away on a quiet street in the heart of Bouldin. Completely renovated in 2007, this spacious home will satisfy your desire for a modern living space without sacrificing comfort or character.
Tucked beneath the shade of a mature pecan tree, the home’s original cottage-style exterior blends in beautifully with the vibrant lifestyle of the Bouldin Creek neighborhood. Step up to the impressive steel door and you will quickly see this is not your average Bouldin bungalow. Soaring ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors, and a brick fireplace greet you in the versatile living space. With a combined living/dining room and adjacent kitchen, there is abundant room to relax and entertain downstairs. Stylish accents like a wooden bead chandelier and painted brick give the living space unique style. Most rooms have large windows on two sides washing the home in lovely natural light year-round.
You’ll love the artful design details in the spacious kitchen. Sleek cabinets provide a contemporary backdrop for a dual-height island that features reclaimed wood and a custom metal countertop. The designer paint palette and brick accent wall add distinctive personality to the room.
Not only is the kitchen full of personality, it is highly efficient too. You really can have two cooks in this kitchen thanks to wide walkways between the cabinets and the large island. Finished with engineered stone countertops and high-end appliances -- like a double-oven by Bosch and a Jenn-Air cooktop and refrigerator – preparing meals is a breeze. It's as functional as it is beautiful.
A thoughtful mix of open shelving, frosted glass, and closed cabinets offer a myriad of storage and display options. A built-in wine shelf, walk-in pantry, and adjoining laundry room with commercial sink and built-in cabinets and shelves make sure there’s a place for everything.
For formal meals the kitchen opens onto the dining room. You also have the option to gather in the breakfast nook or enjoy a casual meal at the island bar. The French doors in the kitchen open to the backyard so you can easily move your meal to the patio.
This Bouldin home is perfectly proportioned. Two spacious bedrooms with carpeted floors, closets with built-in shelving, and ceiling fans are located downstairs. A full-size bathroom with a combination shower/tub and two sinks means there is no arguing over space, while a nearby hall closet provides additional storage room.
Head upstairs at the end of the day to relax in the generously sized owner’s retreat. With windows on two sides, this light and airy room is a peaceful refuge. A private balcony overlooks the backyard – perfect for a nightcap before bed. The walk-in closet with built-in shelves and hanging rods is a homeowner’s dream. Plus, you can access additional attic storage (one of two attic spaces) right from the closet.
Rounding out the owner’s retreat is a sizeable en suite bathroom designed in neutral colors. The spa-like space features a jetted bathtub as well as a large walk-in shower with bench, dual shower heads, and storage niches. An expansive engineered stone countertop and dual sinks can easily accommodate two people getting ready for the day at one time. Travertine floors and stone tile add to the tranquil vibe in the bathroom. No detail was overlooked in this serene space.
An additional flex room is also located upstairs. This private space can be adapted to many uses such as a home office, a fourth bedroom, home gym, nursery, play room, media room, and more. The versatile floorplan gives you plenty of options depending on how you want to maximize the space.
Sometimes it’s the things you don’t see or immediately think about that you appreciate most in a home once you live there. This home has a Four Star Green rating, a tankless water heater, and low maintenance landscaping to help with energy efficiency and water conservation. With large closets, two attic storage spaces, a walk-in pantry, an outdoor storage room, and a roomy laundry room with built-ins, there’s no shortage of storage in this gem of a home. The house is also situated on an alley, which provides significant potential for developing a rear entry to the home or additional parking.
At approximately 2,850 square feet in total, this home offers the modern versatility you crave along with the perfect mix of style and comfort. Homeowners who eschew mass-produced spaces in favor of those marked by authenticity and creativity will love 914 Jewell Street.
The beauty of this home extends to its backyard space as well. A covered back porch with slate floors extends along the length of the house and has an ample seating area. A large composite patio is situated just off the porch and is ready for you to add a dining table for all fresco meals under the stars. Built-in plant boxes, crepe myrtles, peach trees, and bamboo create a verdant and peaceful feel to the space. With such beautiful surroundings, you will want to enjoy this private backyard oasis year-round.
The home also includes a separate guest house with a kitchenette, full bathroom, and built-in loft bed. The possibilities for this separate cottage are endless. The guest house has a history of producing rental income as a rental through AirBNB. In the past the space has served as nanny quarters, artist studio, home office, workshop, and yoga studio. How will this additional space serve you?
