JUST LISTED: Laid back luxe in Allandale
Built in 2015 by Brohn Homes on a large .3 acre lot, this one-story home offers laid back luxe in the heart of Austin’s Allandale neighborhood. With “new traditional” styling, the inviting exterior features a balanced mix of stone and siding punctuated with a welcoming front porch and peaked roofline. The refined design hints at the custom quality and high-end details you’ll find inside.
Soaring 10 – 18’ ceilings, hickory wood floors, elegant chandeliers, and molded tray ceilings make for a grand entrance as you enter the front door. Beautiful finishing touches like these are found throughout the home.
This beautiful home is also highly functional and efficient thanks to an open concept floor plan that connects the living space to the kitchen and breakfast nook. The living room and kitchen are anchored by a striking floor-to-ceiling white brick fireplace with custom masonry. Wood ceiling beams add additional architectural interest, while a wall of windows overlooks the back porch and yard beyond. This flexible space welcomes life’s little moments and larger celebrations alike.
Custom woodwork created by a local craftsman can be seen in the substantial baseboards, casings around the eight foot doorways, crown molding in the tray ceilings, and the coffered ceilings in the dining room. Handmade stained glass sconces and painted brick offer additional one-of-a-kind touches. This gracious mix of modern materials and timeless style will impress the most discerning eye.
Adjoining the living room is a magazine-worthy kitchen. The kitchen is designed around a substantial island adorned with a stunning single-slab of River White granite. Guests can comfortably linger while you prepare dinner or pull up a stool for a more casual dining experience. And with a full suite of professional appliances, you will actually want to cook in this kitchen! A Kitchen Aid professional series six -burner gas cooktop, stainless steel double ovens and a farmhouse sink look good while working hard. White Shaker-style cabinets extend to the ceiling to maximize storage, and beveled white ceramic subway tile laid in a herringbone pattern provides a classic backsplash. An adjoining butler’s pantry features a wine fridge and glass front cabinets, while a walk-in pantry provides additional storage out of sight.
For informal meals you can gather in the adjacent breakfast nook or curl up on the window seat overlooking the backyard. When you‘re in the mood to entertain you can come together in the open dining room adorned with board and batten accents and a coffered ceiling. This home is proof that comfort and style don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
In addition to the living spaces, this home features four large bedrooms and three bathrooms. Situated near the front of the home, one of the bedrooms can also function as a mother-in-law style guest suite with full ensuite private bath and an expansive closet. Each bedroom has substantial closets with built-in shelves, and every bathroom has custom tile work. A board and batten wall with storage hooks outside of the secondary bedrooms awaits backpacks and soccer bags. As a bonus, there is also a private study with French doors near the front of the home. Working from home has never looked so good!
The owner’s suite is thoughtfully separated from the other bedrooms in the house and features distinctive details like a bay window overlooking the backyard. The adjoining bathroom is spacious with two separate vanities and sinks. A garden tub allows for relaxing baths or you can make use of the walk-in shower with rain showerhead. Textured tile gives the room a distinctive look.
At approximately 2,713 square feet, the home also has abundant storage space. A spacious laundry room greets you when you enter the home from the two-car garage. This hard-working room has ample countertops and cabinets. There’s also a drop zone with cubbies and hooks to store purses, briefcases, coats, and backpacks that often travel with you as you leave the home. For guests entering through the front door, you’ll find another drop zone that offers both style and function thanks to decorative hooks, board and batten wood paneling, shelves, and cubbies. The home is perfectly crafted to enrich your every day life.
The screened-in back porch with custom-stained plank ceiling expands the useable living space. It’s the perfect spot for al fresco dining or watching the activity in the landscaped backyard. A tall privacy fence encloses the backyard while mature flower beds planted with sage, mountain laurel, and crepe myrtle provide color and the sycamore and shumard oak trees provide shade. The .3 acre lot is large enough to accommodate a pool. These swimming pool plans from the owners already meet the impervious cover requirements.
While the home features a beautiful combination of textures and high-end finishes, as the new homeowner you will appreciate the less obvious features that make for easy living. Considerate details like the built-in wall injection pest control system and leaf guards in the custom gutters simplify your home maintenance and a security system provides peace of mind. Efficient green home technology like UV protected windows and the automatic lawn sprinkler keep energy bills in check. The home is also an approved location for efficient solar panel use should you desire. You also have the choice of multiple Internet providers, including Google Fiber.
