SOLD: Boho chic cottage in South Manchaca
Prepare to be charmed by this 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage with bonus studio. The pops of color and the playful accents in the classic white exterior let you know this is no ordinary home.
Starting with the royal blue front door with its pineapple knocker and matching blue farmhouse lights, it’s clear this house is special. It is full of free-flowing, artful touches -- the kind of home that feels both familiar and livable, yet bold and fresh.
From the curb this warm and inviting 1950s-style home is anchored by a manicured lawn, two mature pecan trees, and established landscaping. A deep front porch extending along the length of the house just begs you to come and sit a spell. The nostalgic porch swing – is the perfect spot for visiting with neighbors, curling up with a book, or just unwinding at the end of the day.
The home opens to a cozy living area with warm hardwood floors. The adjoining kitchen has been remodeled with numerous designer touches such as on-trend subway tile and white marble counters. Floating wood shelves provide ample display space, while closed cabinets allow you the option of tucking other kitchen items out of sight. A commercial style goose-neck faucet and apron-front farmhouse sink make clean-up a breeze.
The kitchen opens onto a large second living room that combines the living and dining space into one great room. Whimsical wallpaper and an industrial-style clustered pendant define the dining area. With windows on three sides, this second living area is a light and bright space for entertaining guests or bingeing on your favorite TV show.
Two bedrooms are located on the other side of the home from the living spaces, allowing optimum privacy. Both bedrooms retain the original hardwood floors. The nearby bathroom features stone tile floors and granite counters.
A spacious backyard extends the living space of this 1,090 square foot home. Like the rest of the home, no detail was overlooked to transform the yard into an outdoor retreat. A concrete patio is perfect for late night chats around the firepit, raised beds make gardening a breeze, and the café lighting means you can enjoy the yard long after the sun has set. There’s also a dedicated space for dining al fresco, and a large lawn for games.
The backyard is anchored by an adorable stand-alone studio. With 250 square feet, this flexible heated and cooled space can be purposed in a variety of ways, such as an art, music or yoga studio, home gym, home office, guest quarters, or more. The French doors and front porch give the studio a sense of place and character.
While this home retains its 1950s soul, everything from the fixtures to the hardwood floors have been stylishly updated for modern living. You’ll enjoy Google fiber, a Nest thermostat, tankless water heater, and other upgrades.
Located in South Manchaca, this area is considered by many to be the up and coming version of 78704.
