SOLD: Charm & modern versatility in East Austin
Built in 2011, this three bedroom, two bathroom home in East Austin is the ideal combination of charm and modern versatility. With a welcoming front porch, decorative eaves, and cedar shake shingle accents, the home has nostalgic appeal without compromising on modern updates with on-trend finishes like subway tile, engineered stone counters, and wood floors.
The charming vibe continues inside. Wood windows by Pella provide abundant natural light while new wood floors add natural warmth. The home features the popular "great room" concept with a combination kitchen, dining, and living area for ease in gathering with family and friends.
The kitchen has crisp engineered stone counters and on-trend white subway tile backsplash accented with warm wood Kraftmaid cabinets. The efficient triangle layout of the kitchen makes meal prep a breeze, and with ample countertop space you can have more than one cook helping in the kitchen. The flexibility of the adjoining dining space allows for grabbing a meal on the go at the eat-in bar or enjoying a sit down dinner in the dining room.
The owner's bedroom is a great size with windows on two walls and a full walk-in closet that will ensure you have a place to keep your belongings tucked away. The in-suite bathroom has a shower with sliding glass doors, and ceramic tile with natural stone accents lend a spa-like feel to the space. Two modern vanities with separate sinks are perfect if you like your own space while getting ready.
The secondary rooms are also nicely sized with their own closets. A full-size bathroom off the hallway includes a space-saving pocket door, modern vanity sink, and space for linens. A laundry nook is centrally located in the main hall which makes it a breeze to distribute clothes on laundry day.
Not only does the home have parking available on the street, it also has a separate entrance and alley access in the back. The one-car garage features attractive carriage doors, a large storage area, windows for natural light, and a sink. The fenced yard makes the home suitable for pets, and a large wood deck in the backyard is perfect for enjoying Austin's sunny days.
In addition to the main house, the property includes separate living quarters above the garage. Previously used as an income-producing short-term rental, the one bedroom efficiency apartment has a kitchenette with engineered stone counters and a private bathroom. With a separate entrance, guests can come and go without disruption.
The downtown skyline is in clear view from the front yard, confirming this home's convenient location. You'll love living in this sought-after area where you can walk to popular restaurants, coffee shops, studios, and more.
Grab a cocktail at some of Austin's hippest bars like Stay Gold, Craftsman, and Weather Up which are just a quick walk around the corner. With Veracruz Taco Truck, Jacoby's Restaurant, and Grizzelda's less than a five minute drive away, you'll be foregoing dinners at home to dine at these popular Austin spots. Close entrances to the east side of Townlake Trail are a bonus to this home's amazing location. The boardwalk is a beautiful place to walk your dog or take your kids to ride their bikes while you walk along the sparkling water of the lake.
