SOLD: Enjoy urban living in this updated North Allandale home
Want the convenience of being in the heart of Central Austin while enjoying the modern comforts of an updated home? This home checks all the boxes. You get the benefit of urban living plus the opportunity to own an updated home in an established neighborhood.
While the exteriors features classic ranch-style details like a cheerful front door, brick exterior, and inviting front yard, the interior is tastefully renovated in keeping with current home trends. Comfortable. Stylish. Easy. And ready to move in.
The living space features an open floor plan that combines a large living area with distinct zones for the dining room and kitchen. With a large picture window in front and sliding glass doors on the back, the heart of the home is light and airy.
The shared living space makes an excellent area to host gatherings. And with a modernized kitchen, meal prep is a breeze. A built-in wine rack? Check! Drawers, upper cabinets, and even a pantry means that there's a place for everything. Stylish gray Caesarstone counters are both attractive and durable. A lighter gray subway tile backsplash adds texture to offset the white cabinets. Silver hardware and stainless steel appliances give the cooking space a neutral and refined style. You'll appreciate the thoughtful details like the coffee bar, energy efficient Bosch dishwasher, and high-powered vent hood that keeps cooking odors under control.
A short hallway separates the living space from the private sleeping quarters. Two of the three bedrooms have windows on two sides which let in bright, natural light. Engineered oak floors accented with new baseboards unify the floor plan and lend a clean and polished look throughout the home.
Located on the main hall, the remodeled bathroom features subtly patterned porcelain tile floors, a dual flush toilet, and new fixtures. It's the ideal pairing of fresh elements with familiar features.
The outdoor spaces of this home are also outstanding. The expansive front yard includes a sprinkler system and Monterey oak tree that will provide shade in years to come. Out back you can enjoy leisure time on the aggregate patio under the shade of a mature pecan and American Sweet Gum tree. The St. Augustine grass is soft underfoot as you enjoy the established butterfly garden. Built-in planters await your personal touch, and there's plenty of room to stow your gardening tools in the on-site storage shed. This backyard is a perfect oasis for lounging, hosting friends, or watching the kids play.
You'll also enjoy energy efficient upgrades like the new HVAC system, upgraded electrical, all LED lighting, supplemented attic insulation, and new gutters. Plus, the sewer line to the street has been replaced. An attached one-car garage provides additional storage space and hook-ups for a washer and dryer.
All of this AND you can walk to Starbucks, Alamo Drafthouse, Cover 3, San Fransisco Bakery, and more great eateries along Anderson Lane. Located in the North Shoal Creek neighborhood, often commonly called North Allandale, this home is in a fantastic Central Austin setting with easy access to Mopac. The Domain, Dowtown Austin, or the Arboretum are all only minutes away.
